|Em G D C/G|
|Em G D C/G|


Verse 1:
C/G           Em                       G                       
Look upon a - mountain.  'Waitin' on a train.
G                   D                   C/G                  
Baby I know what's wrong and it's still happening.
Em            G        D                C/G         
Waiting on my destiny, learning from my abilities. 
Em      G                 D         
Who was wrong and who was right? 
D                   C/G
And do we even know why we are fighting?
Em                G             D             C/G 
So take your eyes off of me and look upon the churning sea. 


Chorus 1:
Em                     G                       D                         
Driving towards the daylight, running from the midnight.
              C/G          Em                   G                        
Trying to get my way home. Running from the spotlight. 
                      D                    C/G
Trying to find the daylight, trying to get back home.


Verse 2:
Em                  G                  D          C/G              
Rusty strings on my old guitar, speaks volumes of who you are. 
Em             G                         D              C/G 
So never did I think it was you.  It was me, one of the chosen few. 
Em          G               D                C/G 
Who will it be, oh the next time?  Hopefully one with more sense of mind. 
Em               G                D                    C/G 
So where did you go?  Always will see, it's a story of you and me. 


Chorus 2:
Em                     G                       D                         
Driving towards the daylight, running from the midnight.
              C/G          Em                   G                        
Trying to get my way home. Running from the spotlight. 
                      D                    C/G
Trying to find the daylight, trying to get back home.

|Em C Em D Am|

Em                     G                       D                         
Drivin' towards the daylight, running from the midnight.
              C/G          Em                   G                        
Trying to get my way home. Running from the spotlight. 
                      D                    C/G
Trying to find the daylight, trying to get my way home.

Drivin' towards the daylight, running from that midnight.

Trying to get my way home. Running from the spotlight. 
                      D                C/G
Trying to find the daylight, trying to get my way home.

You should watch a youtube video of him playing this. These aren't the chords he is using. Correct route notes, but not the same chords.
The C/G he is using is 3rd fret on A and B strings and muted D and E strings.

Not sure what E chord he is using, but it's definitely not this one.

It was transcribed by ear and TAB'd within days of the release with very little information. Feel free to TAB a an alternate version. Regards, :-R
