Running On Empty
Jackson Browne
(As performed live acoustically at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zJH41uWVpo)

Intro:  
  (C/F       F/C F)  X3       Dm     F/C   Am7  Dm
  
  F/C                         F                                  F/C                  F/C F
  Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels      
  F/C                           F                                  F/C                  F/C F 
  Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields  
  F/C                F                  F/C                  F/C F  
  In '65, I w as seventeen , running up  101  
  F                                     C/E                      G 
  I don't know where I' m running now, I 'm just running on.  


Chorus  
                     F/C                    F 
     (Running  on) Running on empty  
                     F/C                F 
     (Running  on) Running blind  
      F/C                      F                         Dm 
      Running into the sun, but running behind.  


Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive,  
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive.  
In 69, I was 21 and I called the road my own.  
I don't know where this road turned into the one I'm on.  

(chorus and repeat intro)

  Dm              F        G                     F   Dm                         G              F 
  Everyone I know ,everywhere I  go, people need some reason to believe 

  Dm                F         G                  F 
  If it takes all night,  that'll be all  right  
  F                            G                    F C/E Dm F Dm G 
  If I can get you to smile before I leave.            

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 that I used to turn to that pulled me through.  
Looking into their eyes, I see they're running, too.  

chorus  

 


 F/C                         F                                  F/C       F/C F
  Honey, you really tempt me, the way you look so kind.  
  F                                    G                             F C/E Dm F Dm G 
  I wanna know who you are but I'm running behind.          
  F                          G                                        F C/E Dm F Dm G 
 And I don't even  know what I'm hoping  to  find.  
   
 
  F                         G                       F C/E Dm F
 Running into the sun, but running behind.
