Intro: C

C
Every night my dream's the same

Same old city with a different name
Fadd9
Men are coming to take me away
  C
I don't know why but I know I can't stay

C
There's a weight that's pressing down

Late at night you can hear the sound
Fadd9
Even the noise you make when you sleep
C
Can't swim across a river so deep

Gsus4                       C/B
They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
         Am7                       Fadd9
But they don't know where and they don't know when
Gsus4                         C
It's coming, when it's coming

C
There's a fear I keep so deep

Knew its name just before I could speak, yeah
Fadd9       C
Oh Oh Oh Oh

Gsus4                       C/B
They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
         Am7                       Fadd9            C
But they don't know where and they don't know when
     Fadd9      C             Fadd9
It's coming, or when but it's coming  
             C
Keep the car running

C
If some night I don't come home

Please don't think I've left you alone
    Fadd9
The same place animals go when they die
    C
You can't climb across a mountain so high
    Fadd9
The same city where I go when I sleep
    C
You can't see across a river so deep

Gsus4                       C/B
They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
         Am7                       Fadd9           C
But they don't know where and they don't know when
     Fadd9      C          Fadd9
It's coming, oh when is it coming  
             C       Fadd9
Keep the car running
             C       Fadd9
Keep the car running
             C       Fadd9
Keep the car running
             C
Keep the car running

Great tab and fast.

However I think there should be a few changes.The D5 is corrects as you describe it but you want to keep your fingers on the "xxxx35".

So you provide this to the G and you got a (?):
320035

And the A becomes a Asus:
x0334x

So you play the verse:
xx0235
320035
xx0235

And the chorus:
x0334x
320035
xx0235
