I noticed that Taborama doesn't have any Del Amitri songs tabbed out here, so i decided I'd write this one.  This has to be one of my favorite songs of all time.  

On your C and Am chords, you're going to have to hammer-on and pull-off with your first finger on the B string.  Listen to the song to see what I'm talking about.  Easy rythem.

=======================

Capo: 3rd Fret (All chords relative to Capo)

If you're lazy, here are the correct fingerings...

Intro: C

C
Driving through the long night
                                       Am
Trying to figure who's right and who's wrong
                  C   C
Now the kid has gone. I sit belted up tight.
                                     Am              C
She sucks on a match light, glowing bronze, steering on.
      F                        G
And I might be more a man if I stopped this in it's tracks
              C            Am        F
And said come on, let's go home. But she's got the wheel.
    G                                   C
And I've got nothing except what I have on.


C
When you're driving with the brakes on.
				 Am
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
			    F             G
It's hard to say you love someone
			        C
And it's hard to say you don't.


C
Trying to keep the mood right,
                                 Am
trying to steer the conversation from
                  C    C
The thing we've done.  She shuts up the ashtray
                                     Am                   C
and I say "it's a long way back now, hun."  And she just yawns.
       F                           G
And we might get lost someplace so desolate that
                    C              Am         F
no one where we're from would ever come.  But she's got the wheel.
    G                         C
And I've got to deal from now on.


C
When you're driving with the brakes on.
                                 Am
When you're swimming with you're boots on.
                            F       G
It's hard to say you love someone
                                C
And it's hard to say you don't.Elec. Gtr./Dist. Tone


		    C          Am      F
But unless the moon falls tonight,
                      Am    F    C
unless continents collide.
		Am     F    G
Nothing's gonna make me
               Am    F   G
break from her side.Acoustic Gtr./Clean Tone


			     C
When you're driving with the brakes on.

When you're swimming with you're boots on.
			F             G
It's hard to say you love someone
			 Am           F    G
And it's hard to say you don't.
			   F            G
It's hard to say you love someone
			       Am     C  <--- Strum once(End.)
And it's hard to say you don't.
