Driving with the brakes on -- Del Amitri

Capo on 1st fret

Legend:          Dmaj7 : xx0222 (played alternately with D)
                     D : xx0232
               B(add?) : 224422 (played alternately with Bm)
                    Bm : 224432
                     G : 320022
                     A : x02220

D
Driving through the long night
                                       Bm
Trying to figure who's rigth and who's wrong
                D
Now the kid has gone. I sit belted up tight.
                                    Bm               D
She sucks on a match light, glowing bronze, steering on.
      G                        A
And I might be more a man if I stopped this in it's tracks
              Bm           D         G
And said come on, let's go home. But she's got the wheel.
    A                                   D       G
And I've got nothing except what I have on.

[CHORUS]
                             D
When you're driving with the brakes on.
                                 Bm
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
                          G          A
It's hard to say you love someone
                         Bm        G     A
And it's hard to say you don't.


Trying to keep the mood right, trying to steer the conversation from
The thing we've done.
She shuts up the ashtray and I say it's a long way back now hon
And she just yawns. And we might get lost someplace
So desolate that no one where we're from would ever come
But she's got the wheel and I've got to deal from now on.

When you're driving with the brakes on.
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
It's hard to say you love someone
And it's hard to say you don't.

                    D             Bm  G                        Bm    G    D
But unless the moon falls tonight,        unless continents collide.
                Bm     G    A                   Bm     G    A
Nothing's gonna make me          break from her side.

                             D
When you're driving with the brakes on.
                                 Bm
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
                          G          A
It's hard to say you love someone
                         Bm        G     A
And it's hard to say you don't.
                          G          A
It's hard to say you love someone
                         Bm        G     D
And it's hard to say you don't.
                                      (End on D)

This is the way Justin played it in concert when I reviewed the show.
Capo on 3rd fret
=0D

Where the C and Am chords are played the B-string is alternately tapped. =
 That is, the first fret of of the second string alternates between being=
 left opena nd being fingered every half measure, creating the rhythm.  I=
t's fairly obvious from the disc and isn't too hard to get the hang of.  =
I wasn't paying too close attention to how it was played, but the chords =
should be right and if you listen to the disc and hear some variations th=
en I probably screwed up.  Hey, sue me.  But is sounds right to me.

2nd part of this sounds better to me, slightly easier to play too.
