These chords are the basic skeleton of the song.  
The actual song is a little fancier.  Listen if you care to figure it out.

Am                   G                           Am
She fed me strawberries and freezer-burned ice cream
                    E                        F
I said "Goodbye, I guess" She lifted up her dress
                 D
and so I must confess, we made out one more
A       D       A       D
time before I left for good
        A       D         A
She thought I'd come back but I
Bflat            F               E
wouldn't want to seem like other guys

(Same pattern as above until Am)
A book-and-record love, we sat and read our books,
between those longing looks, compounded by our fear,
My tongue inside her ear, my tongue inside her
in the basement of her mother's house where she once taped the
                                        Am
first three sides of Sandanista for my car.

         D              G          D/F#      Em            Am
We were looking for ourselves and found each other. In the Car
         D              G          D/F#      Em            Am
it was rare to do much more than simply mess around. In the Car
         D           G    D/F# Em               Am
It was mostly mutual masturbation And though we spoke of penetration
            C                                 G
I'd have to wait for someone else to try it out

Once I had this dream
where I slept with her mom
Unless I've got this wrong, a secret all along
Unless she hears this song
unless she hears it
on a tape inside her car
with her new husband and she
turns to him and says "I think that's me"

In the Car
We were looking for ourselves
but found each other
In the Car
We groped for excuses
not to be alone anymore
In the Car
We were waiting for our lives
to start their endings
In the Car
We were never making love
We were never making love
