Drive by    (video)

 

    Am ~

 

  Am                                                       - F

1.   On the other side of a street I knew    stood a girl that looked like you,

C                                    - G

    I guess that's déjà vu,      but I thought this can´t be true.

                - Am                                           - F

    ’Cause         you moved to west L.A or         New York or Santa Fe,

         - C                                             G

    or        wherever to get away from me.

 

     Dm                             - F

    Oh, but that one night         was more than just right,

Am                            - G

    I didn´t leave you‚      ’cause I was all through.

Dm                                     - F

    Oh, I was overwhelmed       and frankly scared as hell,

E

    because I really fell for you !

 

 F                           - C                                - G                            Am

Oh, I swear to you,     I´ll be there for you,       this is not a drive by,

F                          C                               G                        E      F

    just a shy guy looking for a two ply hefty bag to hold m...y love.

                                    C

When you move me, everything is groovy,

   G                                    Am

they don´t like it, sue me, mm, the way you do me,

 F                         - C                               - Dm                             E - Am

oh, I swear to you,     I´ll be there for you,       this is not a drive b.........y !

 

    Am                                                          - F

2. On the other side of a downward spiral        my love for you went viral,

C                                            - G

    and I loved you every mile        you drove away,

Am                                                 - F

    but now here you are again, so      let´s skip the "how you been",

      C                                                 G

    and get down to the "more than friends" at last.

 

    Dm                               - F

    Oh. but that one night         was still the highlight,

Am                          - G

    I didn't need you        until I came to.

Dm                                      - F

    And I was overwhelmed        and frankly scared as hell,

E

    because I really fell for you.

 

+  CHORUS

 

       Em        Am              F       G

+  Please believe that when I leave,

                  E                     Dm                         G

    there´s nothing up my sleeve but love for you,

 

    and a little time to get my head together, too.

 

    Am                                                   - F

3. On the other side of a street I knew      stood a girl that looked like you

C                                          - G

    I guess that's déjà vu, but       I thought this can´t be true.

 

 F                           - C                                - G                            Am

Oh, I swear to you,     I´ll be there for you,       this is not a drive by,

F                          C                               G                        E      F

    just a shy guy looking for a two ply hefty bag to hold m...y love.
