You Caught Me Laughin'
written by John Hiatt

We went to church last Sunday
I held your little hand
And we listened to the gospel
Of an old time preachin' man

In the middle of the sermon
He cracked a little smile
And said Jesus will take care of you
I'll see you after while

CHORUS:
Well you caught me laughin'
Though it was not a joke
Well you caught me laughin
Underneath the holy smoke

I showed up at your wedding
I was crazy like a loon
Before I realized what was happening
I was your bridegroom

In the middle of the wedding vows
You looked at me and smiled
And said Jesus will take care of you
I'll see you after while

And now I'm gettin' older
Got cancer in my lung
Well somebody smoked my cigarette
And I think you're the one

And laying on my death bed
You look at me and smile
And said Jesus will take care of you
I'll see you after while
