Drive By (Train)
Capo 9

You might be surprised, but from what I can hear by string tones and the
chord selections it's actually set at Capo 9. Strumming is off-beat pattern
and the chord changes usually lead the lyrics. I strum full in the chorus to
give it energy.

Intro: Em x2 bars
[Em]On the other side of a street I knew
[C]Stood a girl that looked like you
[G]I guess that's deja vu
[D]But I thought this can't be true...cause
[Em]You moved to west L.A or New Y[C]ork or Santa Fe
[G]Or where ever to get away from [D]me
[Am]Oh but that one night
[C]Was more than just right
[Em]I didn't leave you [D]cause I was all through
[Am]Oh I was overwhelmed and[C] frankly scared as hell
[Bsus]Because I really[B] fell for you
[C]Oh I swear to ya, [G]I'll be there for ya
[D]This is not a drive [Em]by-eye-e[D]ye-eye-eye
[C]Just a shy guy [G]looking for a 2-ply
[D]Hefty bag to hold [D#dim]my-eye-eye-eye love
[C]When you move me [G]everything is groovy
[D]They don't like it sue me, [Em]the way you do [D]me
[C]Oh I swear to ya, [G]I'll be there for ya
Am B Em x1 bar
This is not a drive by-eye-eye-eye love
[Em]On the other side of a downward spiral, [C]my love for you went viral
[G]And I loved you every mile, [D]you drove away
[Em]But now here you are again, [C]so let's skip the 'how you been'
[G]And get down to the "more than [D]friends" at last
[Am]Oh but that one night, [C]is still the highlight
[Em]I didn't leave you, [D]until I came to
[Am]And I was overwhelmed, an[C]d frankly scared as hell
[Bsus]Because I really fell for [B]you
[B]Please [Em]believe that [C]when I l[D]eave
[B]There's nothing up m[Am]y sleeve but love for [D]you
[D]And a little time to get my head together too
[Em]On the other side of a street [C]I knew, stood a girl that looked like you
[G]I guess that's deja vu, [D]but I thought this can't be true cause...

I saw one tab out there when I looked and it was done without taking the capo into
account so I figured I'd help anyone trying to figure this one out!
