DDriving through the long night TBmrying to figure who's rigth and who's wrong NDow the kid has gone. I sit belted up tight. SBmhe sucks on a matcDh light, glowing bronze, steering on. AGnd I might be more a man iAf I stopped this in it's tracks ABmnd said come oDn, let's goG home. But she's got the wheel. AAnd I've got nothing except what I havDe on. G

Chorus

WDhen you're driving with the brakes on. WBmhen you're swimming with you're boots on. IGt's hard to Asay you love someone ABmnd it's harGd to saAy you don't. Trying to keep the mood right, trying to steer the conversation from The thing we've done. She shuts up the ashtray and I say it's a long way back now hon And she just yawns. And we might get lost someplace So desolate that no one where we're from would ever come But she's got the wheel and I've got to deal from now on. When you're driving with the brakes on. When you're swimming with you're boots on. It's hard to say you love someone And it's hard to say you don't. BDut unless the mBmoon fGalls tonight, unlesBms contiGnents Dcollide. NBmothing'sG gonnaA make me breBmak from Gher siAde. WDhen you're driving with the brakes on. WBmhen you're swimming with you're boots on. IGt's hard to Asay you love someone ABmnd it's harGd to saAy you don't. IGt's hard to Asay you love someone ABmnd it's harGd to saDy you don't. (End on

D)

Where the C and Am chords are played the B-string is alternately tapped. = That is, the first fret of of the second string alternates between being= left opena nd being fingered every half measure, creating the rhythm. I= t's fairly obvious from the disc and isn't too hard to get the hang of. = I wasn't paying too close attention to how it was played, but the chords = should be right and if you listen to the disc and hear some variations th= en I probably screwed up. Hey, sue me. But is sounds right to me. =0D DCriving through the long night TAmrying to figure who's rigth and who's wrong NCow the kid has gone. I sit belted up tight.
