Running on empty Jackson Browne
[D]Looking out at the road rushing un[A]der my wheels
[D] [A] [D]Looking ba[A]ck at the years gone by like so many summer fields
[D] [A] [D] [A]In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one o one
[D]I don't know where I'm running now[A/C], I'm just running on[E]
[D]Running on, running on empty[A]
[D]Running on, running blind[A]
[D]Running on, running into the sun[A]
But I'm running behind[F#m]
Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and called the road my own
I don't know when that road turned onto the road I'm on.
[F#m]Everyone I kno[D]w, ever[E]ywhere I go[A]
[F#m]People need some reason [E]to believe[D]
I don't know about anyone bu[A]t me[F#m]
If it takes all nigh[D]t, tha[E]t'll be all right[A]
[D]If I can get you to smile before [E]I leave[D] [A/C]
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 I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too
Honey you really tempt me
You know the way you look so kind
I'd love to stick around but I'm running behind
You know I don't even know what I'm hoping to find
Running into the sun but I'm running behind.
