The Late Show  Jackson Browne            (Album: Late for the Sky)
------------------------------


G                                      C
Everyone I've ever known has wished me well
   G                                     C
Anyway that's how it seems, it's hard to tell
      G           D                        C
Maybe people only ask you how you're doing
              G           D              D#dim             Em    G
'Cause that's easier than letting on how little they could care
C            C#dim                  G/D    B7       Em
But when you know that you've got a real friend somewhere
Am                                  D
Suddenly all the others are so much easier to bear


G                                          C
Now to see things clear it's hard enough I know
             G                      C
While you're waiting for reality to show
        G               D
Without dreaming of the perfect love
    C                 G
And holding it so far above
            D                     D#dim             Em     G
That if you stumbled onto someone real, you'd never know
                    C
(You'd never know)
                                  G
You could be with somebody who is lonely too
                             C
(Sometimes it doesn't show)
                          G
He might be trying to get across to you
                       C
(Words can be so slow)
               C#dim       G/D        B7/D#    Em
When your own emptiness is all that's getting through
              Am                                               D   
There comes a point when you're not sure why you're still talking
                    G
I passed that point long ago
      G7       C
(Long ago)


                    G
Now I'm so tired of all this circling
D             D#dim           Em         
And all these glimpses of the end
               G                   
(You know it's useless to pretend)
C
That's all the voices say:
G          D/F#     Em
"You'll go right on circling
Am                              D
Until you've found some kind of friend"

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jackson_browne/late_show_crd.html ]
G                                      C
I saw you through the laughter and the noise
         G                                 C
You were talking with the soldiers and the boys
           G                 D
While they scuffled for your weary smiles
  C                        G
I thought of all the empty miles


        D                     D#dim            Em
And the years that I've spent looking for your eyes
G                        C
(Looking for your eyes)
                                   G
And now I'm sitting here wondering what to say
                            C
(That you might recognize)
                                  G
Afraid that all these words might scare you away
                                  C
(And break through the disguise)
            C#dim             D      B7/D#   Em
No one ever talks about their feelings anyway
        Am               
Without dressing them in dreams and laughter
D                                G          G7                      
I guess it's just too painful otherwise


Solo:
|C            |G           |D     D#dim   |Em     G     |
|C            |G D/F#  Em  |Am            |D            |


Look...
                 D#dim
It's like you're standing in the window
     Em           G
Of a house nobody lives in
        C                           D
And I'm sitting in a car across the way
            C
(Let's just say)
                    G
It's an early model Chevrolet
             C
(Let's just say)
                      G      D/F#
It's a warm and windy day
Em         Em/D#
You go and pack your sorrow
    G/D               A7/C#
The trash man comes tomorrow
         C               D               G
Leave it at the curb and we'll just roll away


Coda:
|C            |G              |C          |G                |   
|C            |G              |C          |G    (car door)  |   
|C            |G   (car door) |C        D |Em      Em/D#    |   
|G/D    A7/C# |C       D      |G          ||
