INTRO – Start the song out with an Am – maybe arpeggio it for a few bars – once the
chords start, play the following progression:

(Am7/9 Em/B Dm7 Em7) X3

VERSE 1

[Am7/9]Standin’ in the rain[Em/B], cab comes into view
asks me where am I goin’ to
[Am7/9]Runnin’ for so long;[Em/B] been gone too many nights
– and my heart has paid the price
[Am7/9]This ain’t heaven; t[Em/B]his ain’t the life I bargained for (oh, no)
[Am7/9]My reason for livin'[Em/B] isn’t here inside this car
Girl I gotta get back to you

CHORUS 1

[Am7/9]Cab driver, take me [Em/B]home
I spent too much time away; too much time alone
[Am7/9]Cab driver, take me [Em/B]home
I spent too much time away from my baby

VERSE 2

[Am7/9]I need familiar stre[Em/B]ets to show me that you’re near
Feelin’ like a stranger here
[Am7/9]Oh does the mirror s[Em/B]how the miles on my face
Am I goin’ any place
[Am7/9]This ain’t heaven; t[Em/B]his ain’t the life I was hopin’ for (oh, no)
[Am7/9]My reason for livin'[Em/B] sure ain’t here inside this car
You know I’ve gotta get back to you

CHORUS 2

[Am7/9]Cab driver, take me [Em/B]home
I spent too much time away; too much time alone
[Am7/9]Cab driver, take me [Em/B]home
I spent too much time away from my baby
[Am7/9]Cab driver, take me [Em/B]home
. . . too much time . . .
[Am7/9]Cab driver, take me [Em/B]home
I spent too much time away from my baby

BRIDGE

I need to see the lovin’ on your face
D9 G5 Dm7(v.2)
A kiss from your lips – oh, the taste, baby
Nothing waiting for me but a lonely room
I’ve gotta get back to my baby - soo[Am7/9]n

CHORUS 3 – This is exactly the same as both “CHORUS 1” and “2,” simply longer, with
vocal improv drifting over the repeated chorus. Simply play the progression of the earlier
over and over again until the song fades out.

NOTE: Daryl Hall’s solo work is definately underrated – this song is is proof of that!!
free to replace the “G5” in the line “Nothing waiting for me but a lonely room” (see
with an “Em” if it sounds better. If the either the rhythm or timing of the chords doesn’t make sense,
just listen to the song – it should be pretty self-explanatory.
