Running on Empty - Jackson Browne


[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)

|D     |E     |D  C#m   Bm  |A

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!
