STORNOWAY - FUEL UP

Having listened to the live version quite a few times now, I still cant discern 
some of the chords, possibly due to a non-standard so these are simply 
approximations. Please feel free to post an edited version if you cant stand any 
minute inaccuracies! 
Enjoy what is a very beautiful song.

 E
Curled up in the back of the car,
 E
9 years old you dont know where you are
          A
And your head's on the window, your eyes are just closed,
          A
Theres a voice in the front and a hush on the road,
          E                 E6                      E      E6
You're a passenger but your mind is travelling on

 E                         E6
Open your eyes and you're nine years older,
 E                             E6
Hands on the wheel and you're racing on over 
   A                              A6
to lie with your first love, you cant wait to see her,
   A                          A6
You borrowed the car and you think you're the driver,
    B                        B6
But now you're the passenger to your own heart
       B                     A
and it takes you travelling, travelling on,

E, E6, E, E6


 E                         E6
When that moring broke and the sky fell down,
 E                         E6
it went black as night, and the wind blew round,
     A                         A6
And stole your directions, you lost your way home,
        Amaj7                  A6
and you felt like a passenger left by the road.
 E                         E6
Well I'll tell you the reason you couldnt get home
 E                         E6
'cos its nowhere you been, and it's nowhere you're going,
        A                    A6
Home is only a feeling you get in your mind,
         Amaj7                   A6 
From the people you love and you travel beside,
        F#m
You may feel like a passenger, now you're the driver,
       B
you've got to go travelling, travelling on.
       F#m
If you break down, 
      B           B7
Its a cold, hard shoulder


CHORUS
        E       A
So fuel up your mind,
         E       A
And fire up your heart,
         E       F#m
And drive on,
      A           B
Drive on, drive on,
              E         A
And when your days are darker,
         E          A
Put your foot down harder,
       F#m        B
Drive on, drive on.



E, E6 , E E6, A, A6, A, A6, 

 E                         E6
And it's nine more years you've been driving now,
 E                         E6
but tonight you're stumbling through your own town
        A                             A6
You met up with a school friend who's still just the same,
       A                             A6 
And you talked all the same shit you talked in those days,
                E                         E6                           E   E6
and now you;re drunk and you're sad for the old times passing you by,


BRIDGE

            C#m
Well theres no rewind so you might as well play,
           E
While your time is rolling away.
    F#m
Get back on the road,

Its a beautiful day,
A                             A6
Pick up all the friends you can find on the way
           F#m                                         C#m
And if you lose direction they'll be there biding you on,
             B
binding you, biding you on,

           A
Cos' we're all going the same way 
          B
Down this long road,
         A
Yes were all bound the same way, 
         B
Down this long, long road,

CHORUS 2

        E       A
So fuel up your mind,
        E        A
And fire up your heart,
         E
And drive on,
  A             B
Drive on, drive on,
              E         A 
And when your days are darker,
         E           A
Put your foot down harder,
      F#m       B7
Drive on, fuel up,
          F#m      B7
And drive on, fuel up,
          F#m       A      E
And drive on, drive on.

To get it exaaactly the same as the origional key put a capo on 4th

I love this song, thanks!

Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwPuCJUke8M for the way he plays it. It's much easier! This is awesome for just listening though. Sounds almost identical.
