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

[Intro]
  (C/G       C/G G)  X3       Em     C/G   Em7  Am
  
[Verse 1]
  C/G                         G                                  C/G                  C/G G
  Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels      
  C/G                           G                                  C/G                  C/G G 
  Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields  
  C/G                G                  C/G                  C/G G  
  In '65, I w as seventeen , running up  101  
  C                                     G/B                      D 
  I don't know where I' m running now, I 'm just running on.  

[Chorus]
                     C/G                    G 
     (Running  on) Running on empty  
                     C/G                G 
     (Running  on) Running blind  
      C/G                      G                         Em 
      Running into the sun, but running behind.  

[Verse 2]
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]
                     C/G                    G 
     (Running  on) Running on empty  
                     C/G                G 
     (Running  on) Running blind  
      C/G                      G                         Em 
      Running into the sun, but running behind.  

[Bridge]
  Em              C        D                     G   Em                         D              C 
  Everyone I know ,everywhere I  go, people need some reason to believe 

  Em                C         D                  G 
  If it takes all night,  that'll be all  right  
  C                            D                    C G/B Am G Em D 
  If I can get you to smile before I leave.            

[Verse 3]
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]
                     C/G                    G 
     (Running  on) Running on empty  
                     C/G                G 
     (Running  on) Running blind  
      C/G                      G                         Em 
      Running into the sun, but running behind.  

[Verse 5]
 C/G                         G                                  C/G       C/G G
  Honey, you really tempt me, the way you look so kind.  
  C                                    D                             C G/B Am G Em D 
  I wanna know who you are but I'm running behind.          
  C                          D                                        C G/B Am G Em D 
 And I don't even  know what I'm hoping  to  find.  
   
[Outro]
  C                         D                       C G/B Am G
 Running into the sun, but running behind.
