4th fret

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.

Curled up in the back of the car,
9 years old you dont know where you are
And your head's on the window, your eyes are just closed,
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,
You may feel like a passenger, now you're the driver,
you've got to go travelling, travelling on.
If you break down, 
      B           B7
Its a cold, hard shoulder

        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,

Well theres no rewind so you might as well play,
While your time is rolling away.
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,
binding you, biding you on,

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

        E       A
So fuel up your mind,
        E        A
And fire up your heart,
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.

Yeah, great job!

To get it exaaactly the same as the origional key put a capo on 4th
- but thats just me being picky.

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.
