Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The Naked Ride Home  Jackson Browne

[C]"Just take off your clothes and I'll drive you [G]home,"  I said
[F]Knowing she never could pass on a [C]dare.
[F]And knowing it sounded more desperate than [C]reckless or bold
I just put it [G]out there cold, too far gone to [F]care.

Verse II:
[C]My eyes on the road, she slid herself [G]down in the seat
[F]And a vision of paradise swung into [C]view.
[F]Across those five lanes not one driver glanced [C]over to see
The beauty known [G]only to me, and a big rig or [F]two.

On that [C]free[G]way the [F]light was receding
Her [C]beau[G]ty, a [F]sight so misleading
I [C]failed to [G]hear the [F]heart that was beating a[G]lone
On the naked ride [C]home. [F]   [Am]    [G]

Verse III:
[C]With the trace of a smile and that defiant [G]look in her eye
[F]She hurtled through space in a world of her [C]own.
[F]And turning aside my caress spoke of [C]all that she'd not yet done
As if I was the [G]doubting one, who would have to be [F]shown.


Break Chords: C G F C F C G F

Verse IV:
[C]She gathered her clothes and ran through the [G]yard in the dark
[F]Up onto the porch like a flash, then in[C]side.
[F]Then one room at a time I watched every [C]light in our house come on
Like the truth that would e[G]ventually dawn, forcing me to de[F]cide.


C F Am G......on out.
