Intro riff - see tab
E5

A                         D        A
 I didn't say we wouldn't hurt any more
                E5
 that's how you learn - you jut get burned
A                           D        A
 We don't have to feel like dirt any more
                   E5
 Though love's not earned, baby, it's our turn
 B5             Badd6   B5                Badda6  B5
 We were always looking for too long
          A5           Aadd6  A                  Aadd6 A
 With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course
B5                  Badd6 B5                     Badd6   B5       A5
 But I've left that motor running, now if you're feeling down and out

D                     E    E/G#                  A      B
Oh come on baby drive south,    with the one you love
                      E    E/G#                  A      B
Oh come on baby drive south,    with the one you love

I'm not talking about retreating, little girl
Gonna take our stand in this chevy bang
Windows open on the rest of the world
Holding hands all the way to dixie land
We've been trying to turn our lives around
Since we were little kids, it's been wearing us down
Don't turn away now darling, let's fire it up and wind it out



D                              A
 And I heard your momma calling: I think she was just stalling
E5                                 B
 Don't know who she was talking to - baby me and you?
D                              A
 We can go down with a smile on; don't bother to pack your nylons
E5                                   B
 Just keep those pretty legs showing - it gets hot down where we're going
                   E5
 Better believe it babe!



We were always looking for too long
With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course
But I've left that motor running, so if you're feeling down and out



Come on baby drive south....

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/h/hiatt_john/drive_south_tab.html ]
The following is  the  introductory  acoustic  guitar  solo  from the Budokan
version. Like the  song  itself,  it's  very  banjo-like,  facilitated by the
altered tuning. A melody line is played and intermingled with lots of droning
notes above it. I have notated the melody  line, but not the flurry of open E
and B strings above it. I'm not too sure if I'm explained this very well, but
listen to the album and  you  should  find  it pretty straightforward- just a
matter of constantly bashing away at  the  E  and B strings throughout: if it
doesn't come naturally,  I  doubt  if  a  full  tab  would  do  any good. The
interlude is notated in the same manner.
