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...

C Am F Ge|-3---3---4---6B|-4---4---4---3G|-3---5---5---3D|-5---5---6---3A|-6---3---6---5E|-3---3---4---6

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. Am When you're swimming with you're boots on.
