Earthquake Driver – Counting Crows

[Intro]
D       E       A       G       D      E       A

[Verse 1]
A                       D       A
I was born again a little north of Disney Land
D                    A                              E
Somewhere under Wonderland and Hollywood
                       A                                           D                    A       
But then I had to go skipping and diving and bouncing back to New York City
                                      D                 A                      E        
Straight through the heart of America where all the wild things grow


[Chorus]
D         E           A
I want to be an earthquake driver
D               E         A
I want to be an aquarium diver
D               E                     A G       D      E       A
I just don't want to go home

[Verse 2]
A                       D               A
I live alone but I am hungry for affection
D             A                                E
I just struggle with connection til the water calls me home
A                           D               A   
Down into ocean among millions of other lonely people
 D                                 A                    E       
Drowning among the only people we are ever going to know

[Chorus]
D         E           A
I want to be an earthquake driver
D               E         A
I want to be an aquarium diver
D               E                     A G       D      E       A
I just don't want to go home

[Bridge]
E
I want to be like the people I see
D
They want a rover just like me
E
I wanna stay but what keeps me away 
D
Is I'm tied into the lightning line
A
And I wanna see if the sun is shining
F#m                              E
Long night’s just a waste of time I, I don't want to see people like me

Just sleeping and, waking and, hoping and, hating and

[Verse 3] 
A                                        D             A        
You look at me like I'm some kind of carnival attraction
                D               A               E                 
You say love is an abstraction, just some ghost that you chase
           A                                           D         A      
Well, I am a cypher and, I am a blank space
                          D                    A                                        E
Filled up with words you remember from whenever you saw my face

[Chorus]
D         E           A
I want to be an earthquake driver
D               E         A
I want to be an aquarium diver
D               E                     A G       D      E       A
I just don't want to go home

[Bridge]
E
I want to be like the people I see
A
Hey man, they want a rover just like me
E
I want to stay but what keeps me away
D
Is I’m plugged into the lightning line
A
I wanna be where the sun is shining
F#m                      E
All night, chasing time I, I don't want to be with people like me

Just creeping and, waking and, hoping and, hating and

[Verse 4]
A                                                    D                        A
Now what is the price of this fame and self absorption?
        D                                 A                             E  
We turn ourselves into orphans and then spend our nights alone
A                                                     D                A  
Living in fear of some kind of imaginary consequence
D           A                E
Terror incognito, ob-la-di li-bi-do

[Chorus]
D         E           A
I want to be an earthquake driver
D               E         A
I want to be an aquarium diver
D               E                     A G       D      E       A
I just don't want to go home
                D                        E         A
Truth is I don't want to be no earthquake driver
        D                             E        A
And I do not want to be an aquarium diver, but hey
D               E                     A G       D      E       A
I just don't want to go home
D               E                     A G       D      E       A
Oh man, I just don't want to go home
D               E                     A G       D      E       A
Oh, I do not want to go home

Lack of accuracy. The F# chord is definitely off, some okay parts but overall not too great, especially the intro and chorus. The verse seems okay though.

Good point about some of the F#'s, I've changed those. On listening again, it looks like it could be D E A G D E A, the F# is definitely not right though.

Hey everyone! Just two quick corrections:

The F# is actually F# minor, not major.

The Em is actually E major, not minor.

That's it! Otherwise, great tab OP!
