Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Late Show  Jackson Browne


[G]Everyone I've ever known has wished me [C]well
Any[G]way that's how it seems, it's hard to [C]tell
Maybe [G]people only [D]ask you how you're doing [C]
'Cause that's [G]easier than [D]letting on how [D#dim]little they could [Em]care  [G]
[C]But when you [C#dim]know that you've got a [G/D]real fr[B7]iend some[Em]where
[Am]Suddenly all the others are so much [D]easier to bear
[G]Now to see things clear it's hard enough I [C]know
While you're [G]waiting for reality to [C]show
Without [G]dreaming of the [D]perfect love
And [C]holding it so far [G]above
That if you [D]stumbled onto someone [D#dim]real, you'd never [Em]know   [G]
(You'd never know)  [C]
You could be with somebody who is [G]lonely too
(Sometimes it doesn't show)  [C]
He might be trying to get [G]across to you
(Words can be so slow) [C]
When your own e[C#dim]mptiness is [G/D]all that's [B7/D#]getting t[Em]hrough
There comes a [Am]point when you're not sure why you're still talki[D]ng
I passed that point [G]long ago
(Long [G7]ago)     [C]
Now I'm so tired of [G]all this circling
[D]And all these [D#dim]glimpses of the [Em]end
(You know it's [G]useless to pretend)
[C]That's all the voices say:
[G]"You'll go [D/F#]right on [Em]circling
[Am]Until you've found some kind of [D]friend"
[G]I saw you through the laughter and the [C]noise
You were [G]talking with the soldiers and the [C]boys
While they [G]scuffled for your [D]weary smiles
I [C]thought of all the empty [G]miles
And the [D]years that I've spent [D#dim]looking for your [Em]eyes
[G](Looking for your eyes)  [C]
And now I'm sitting here wondering [G]what to say
(That you might recognize)  [C]
Afraid that all these words might [G]scare you away
(And break through the disguise)  [C]
No one ever [C#dim]talks about their [D]feeling[B7/D#]s anyway[Em]
Without [Am]dressing them in dreams and laughter
[D]I guess it's just too painful oth[G]erwise     [G7]
|C |G |D D#dim |Em G |
|C |G D/F# Em |Am |D |

It's like you're [D#dim]standing in the window
Of a [Em]house nobody [G]lives in
And I'm [C]sitting in a car across the [D]way
(Let's just [C]say)
It's an early model [G]Chevrolet
(Let's just s[C]ay)
It's a warm and windy [G]day    [D/F#]
[Em]You go and [Em/D#]pack your sorrow
The [G/D]trash man comes to[A7/C#]morrow
Leave it [C]at the curb and [D]we'll just roll [G]away
