Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Your Bright Baby Blues  Jackson Browne

I'm [E]sitting down by the highway
[A]Down by that highway side [E]      [A]     [E]
[A]Everybody's going somewhere
Riding just as fast as they can [E]ride [A]   [E]
[B]I guess they've got a lot to do
[C#m]Before they can [A]rest assured
Their [E]lives are [B]justified   [A]
Pray to God for [E]me baby
[A]He can let me [E]slide     [B]

'Cause I've been [E]up and down this highway
[A]Far as my eyes can [E]see  [A]     [E]
[A]No matter how fast I run
I can never seem to get away from [E]me [A]   [E]
[B]No matter where I am
[C#m]I can't help [A]feeling I'm just a [E]day away
From [B]where I want to [A]be
Now I'm running [E]home baby
[A]Like a river to the [E]sea    [B]

Baby if you can [E]see me
Out across this [A]wilderness
There's just [E]one thing
I was [B]hoping you might guess
Baby you can [C#m]free me
All in the [A]power of your [B]sweet tender[E]ness [A]   [E]   [B]
I can [E]see it in your eyes
[A]You've got those bright baby [E]blues  [A]    [E]
[A]You don't see what you've got to gain
But you don't like to [E]lose  [A]     [E]
[B]You watch yourself from the sidelines
[C#m]Like your life is a [A]game you don't mind [E]playing
To [B]keep yourself [A]amused
I don't mean to be [E]cruel baby
[A]But you're looking [E]confused  [B]
Baby if you can [E]hear me
Turn down your [A]radio
There's just [E]one thing
I [B]want you to know
When you've been [C#m]near me
I've felt the [A]love [B]stirring in my [E]soul [A]    [E]    [B]
|E |A |E A |E |
|A |A |E A |E |
|B |C#m A |E B |A |
|E A |E B |

It's so [E]hard to come by
[A]That feeling of peace [E]     [A]     [E]
This friend of mine said
"Close your [A]eyes, and try a few of [E]these" [A]    [E]
[B]I thought I was flying like a bird
[C#m]So far [A]above my sorrow
But when I [E]looked down
I was [B]standing on my knees [A]
Now I need someone to [E]help me
[A]Someone to help me [E]please    [B]

Baby if you [E]need me
Like I [A]know I need you
There's just [E]one thing
I'll [B]ask you to do
Take my hand and [C#m]lead me
To the hole in your [A]garden wall [B]
And pull me [E]through [A]        [E]         [B]
|E |A |E A |E |
|A |A |E A |E |
|B |C#m A |E B |A |
|E A |E B |
