Driving with the brakes on -- Del Amitri

Capo on 3rd fret

C
Driving through the long night
                                       Am
Trying to figure who's right and who's wrong
                C
Now the kid has gone. I sit belted up tight.
                                    Am               C
She sucks on a match light, glowing bronze, steering on.
      F                        G
And I might be more a man if I stopped this in it's tracks
              Am           C         F
And said come on, let's go home. But she's got the wheel.
    G                                   Am     F  G 
And I've got nothing except what I have on.

CHORUS:
                              C
When you're driving with the brakes on.
				         Am
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
			    F             G
It's hard to say you love someone
			        Am      F  G
And it's hard to say you don't.

C                                                               Am
Trying to keep the mood right, trying to steer the conversation from
                C
The thing we've done.
                                                            Am
She shuts up the ashtray and I say it's a long way back now hun
             C             F
And she just yawns. And we might get lost someplace
   G                                Am              C
So desolate that no one where we're from would ever come
    F                       G                         Am     F
But she's got the wheel and I've got to deal from now on.

                             C  
When you're driving with the brakes on.
				         Am
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
			    F             G
It's hard to say you love someone
			        Am      F   G
And it's hard to say you don't.

		        C             Am   F                        Am    F    C
But unless the moon falls tonight,        unless continents collide.
		    Am     F    G                   Am     F    G
Nothing's gonna make me          break from her side.

			           C
When you're driving with the brakes on.
				        Am
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
			   F             G
It's hard to say you love someone
			       Am      F    G
And it's hard to say you don't.
			   F            G
It's hard to say you love someone
			       Am        F  C
And it's hard to say you don't.
