By request, You Can Sleep While I Drive...third in a series.

BTW, does anyone have the tab for Love & Rockets' Saudade, from the
album Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven?  I didn't notice a L&R
directory at nevada, although I could have overlooked it..
Please post or mail it if you do, anyway...this song is a longtime
favourite...

Come on baby, let's get out of this town

        Dm                         C(2)
I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down

          Bb                                 Am        F
There's a chill in my bones, I don't want to be left alone

so baby you can sleep while I drive

I'll pack my bag and load up my guitar

      Dm                        C(2)
In my pocket I'll carry my harp

           Bb                         Am       F
I got some money I've saved enough to get underway

    Bb           F                   C(2)
and baby you can sleep while I drive

                 Dm                    C(2)
We'll go through Tucson up to Santa Fe

    Dm                              C(2)
and Barb'ra in Nashville says we're welcome to stay

             Bb                      Am         F
I'll buy you glasses in Texas, a hat from New Orleans

           Bb                  F                C(2)
and in the morning you can tell me your dreams

           G7                                F           C
You know I've seen it before, this mist that covers your eyes

            G7                           F           C
You've been looking for something that's not in your life

     Bb                                   Am    F
My intentions are true, won't you take me with you?

    Bb           F                  C(2)
and baby you can sleep while I drive

Dsus    Dm      |C   C(2)    C    |
Dsus    Dm      |C   C(2)    C    |

Am      G    C
Oh            is it other arms you want to

Am    G7  C                    Bb
hold      you the stranger the lover you're free

          Am            F
Can't you get that from me?

        Dm                         C(2)
Come on baby let's get out of this town

           Dm                        C(2)
I've got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down

             Bb                          Am            F
If you won't take me with you, I'll go before night is through

    Bb           F                  C(2)
And baby you can sleep while I drive

Back on  "oh...is it other arms you want to....", that first G
might be a G7.  I think the G sounds better, but be your own judges...

Any requests for my next endeavor?
