Love needs a heart

Love needs a heart
And I need to find
If love needs a heart
Like mine

- Jackson Browne

Love needs a heart is a beautiful song not written by Jackson Browne but appearing on the Runnin on Empty 77 tour album this song is wonderful and has brought tears to my eyes after a breakup.

I'm looking for guitar tabs for Love Needs A Heart". Can't find it anywhere. Help!

Yes, LOVE NEEDS A HEART is a killer. But it WAS written by Jackson Browne, along with Valerie Carter and Lowell George. At least according to the credits.

Another really great song is the title, RUNNING ON EMPTY -- if you're anywhere over thirty.

=====
(In sixty-nine) I was twenty-one
And I called the road my own
I don't know when that road
Turned onto the one I'm on.
...
You know I don't even know
what I'm hoping to find
Running into the sun,
But I'm running behind.
=====

The whole album is one of the most brilliantly executed albums ever. Way underrated. Every song recorded live on the road, about being on the road, as a musician and as a metaphor for Life.

I'd love to stick around
But I'm running behind.
