Here's a relatively easy song that I enjoy playing.  In case you're
wondering where I got it from, it's found on the 'Let Her Cry' CD single.
I'm pretty sure that most of the chords and lyrics are correct.  Any help,
improvements or comments appreciated.

         Am   002210


  Intro:

         E----------------------------------------------------------]
         B----------------------------------------------------------]
         G----------------------------------------------------------]
         D----------------------------------------------------------]
         A--------------3-slide-2---0---2---------------------------]
         E----------------------------------------------------------]

     (Played with a swing beat)

         C     F     C     F

         C              F           C           F
         Walking on the water, in a van
         C         Em       Am   Em      G
         Trying to think of everything I can
                  F            G
         But it's getting very late
                   Em                   Am
         And these tapes don't sound no good
                F                               G
         And my body, just don't feel the way I wish it would


         I was driving when I heard you call my name
         It was not like before, not quite the same
         It's to late to be much good
         And I might as well confess
         That I have not got the nerve to borrow cigarettes

         
     Chorus:

         C        Em               G
         When I'm almost with you, music tries to play
         Whem I'm almost home, I almost hear you say
         It'll be alright if we could run away

                    
         (Here, you can either play C  F  C  F, or the following bass fill)


         E----------------------------------------------------------]
         B----------------------------------------------------------]
         G----------------------------------------------------------]
         D----------------------------------------------------------]
         A--3--3-----3--0----------------3--3-----3--0--------------]
         E--------3--------1--0--1-------------3--------1--0--1-----]

         These silent things are all my life (???)
         No one ever tells me when or why
         Oh but my heart can't seem to tell me
         What would satisfy my mind
         So I jump into that van just one more time

         Chorus (and Bass fill)

         Solo (C  Em  Am  G  Am  G  Em  Am  F  G)

         I was driving when I heard you call my name
         It was not like before, not quite the same
         Oh but my heart can't seem to tell me
         What would satisfy my mind
         So I jump into that van just one more time

         Chorus (Bass fill played twice)
