INTRO)
|D     |D A     |D      |D A      |D     |D A    |F#m    |F#m    |

|D                      |A/C#                |E          |       |
(I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on)


VERSE 1)
D                   D-A                    D           D-A
Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
D                   D     A               D             D-A
Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
D                   D-A           D             D-A
In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up 101
D                      A/C#                  E
I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on


CHORUS)
         D/A            A
(Running on) Running on empty
         D/A         A
(Running on) Running blind
         D/A                   A                 F#m
(Running on) Running into the sun, but running behind.


VERSE 2)
Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and called the road my own
I don't know when that road turned onto the road I'm on.


CHORUS 1x


INTRO (with slide guitar)


BRIDGE)

F#m           D     E             A
   Everyone I know,  everywhere I go

F#m                 E           D
   People need some reason to believe

                       A
   I don't know about anyone but me

F#m                D      E               A
   If it takes all night,  that'll be all right

D                     E                   D   C#m    Bm  A    F#m  E
  If I can get you to smile before I leave

VERSE 3)
Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too


CHORUS 1x


VERSE 4)
D                D     A                 D                 D A
Honey you really tempt me,  You know the way you look so kind
D                     E                      D   C#m    Bm  A    F#m  E
I'd love to stick around but I'm running behind
D                     E                      D   C#m    Bm  A    F#m  E
You know I don't even know what I'm hoping to find
D                A/C#                       D   C#m    Bm  A
Running into the sun but I'm running behind.


ENDING

|D     |D-A   |  pattern 12 times (with slide guitar solo)

I don't know why this was rated so low. Maybe the "missing" solo? The chords were perfect though.

I think it sounds better if you play a D/A chord in the verses - at the start etc. It sounds more like the proper recording...

Just my 2 cents.

Other than that excellent tab man!
