Tracy Chapman - Fast Car Lyrics and Chords
Cmaj70 G1 Em2 D3 x4 1
Cmaj74 G5 2You got a fast car.
Em6 D7 3I want a ticket to anywhere.
Cmaj78 G9 4Maybe we make a deal,
Em10 D11 5Maybe together we can get somewhere.
Cmaj712 G13 6Any place is better.
Em14 D15 7Starting from zero, got nothing to lose.
Cmaj716 G17 8Maybe we'll make something,
Em18 D19 9Me myself, I got nothing to prove.
Cmaj720 G21 Em22 D23 X2 11
Cmaj724 G25 12You got a fast car.
Em26 D27 13I got a plan to get us out of here:
Cmaj728 G29 14I been working at the convenience store,
Em30 D31 15Managed to save just a little bit of money.
Cmaj732 G33 16Won't have to drive too far
Em34 D35 17Just 'cross the border and into the city,
Cmaj736 G37 18You and I can both get jobs
Em38 D39 19And finally see what it means to be living.
Cmaj740 G41 Em42 D43 X2 21
Cmaj744 G45 22You see, my old man's got a problem:
Em46 D47 23He live with the bottle, that’s the way it is.
Cmaj748 G49 24He says his body's too old for working,
Em50 D51 25His body's too young to look like his.
Cmaj752 G53 Em54 D55 26My mama went off and left him, she wanted more from life than he could give,
Cmaj756 G57 27I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him."
Em58 D59 28So I quit school and that's what I did.
Cmaj760 G61 Em62 D63 X2 30
Cmaj764 G65 31You got a fast car.
Em66 D67 32But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
Cmaj768 G69 33We gotta make a decision:
Em70 D71 34Leave tonight or live and die this way.
Cmaj772 G73 Em74 D75 X2 36
Cmaj776 C77 G78 37So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
C79 G80 38The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
Em81 C82 39City lights lay out before us
Em83 D84 40And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.
C85 Em86 D87 41And I had a feeling that I belonged
C88 Em89 D90 Em91 C92 Em93 42And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone.
Cmaj794 G95 Em96 D97 X2 44
Cmaj798 G99 45You got a fast car.
Em100 D101 46And we go cruising to entertain ourselves;
Cmaj7102 G103 47you still ain't got a job
Em104 D105 48And I work in a market as a checkout girl.
Cmaj7106 G107 49I know things will get better:
Em108 D109 50You'll find work and I'll get promoted,
Cmaj7110 G111 51We'll move out of the shelter
Em112 D113 52Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs.
Cmaj7114 G115 Em116 D117 X2 54
Cmaj7118 C119 G120 55So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
C121 G122 56The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
Em123 C124 57City lights lay out before us
Em125 D126 58And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.
C127 Em128 D129 59And I had a feeling that I belonged
C130 Em131 D132 Em133 C134 Em135 60And I had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.
Cmaj7136 G137 Em138 D139 X2 62
Cmaj7140 G141 63You got a fast car.
Em142 D143 64And I got a job that pays all our bills.
Cmaj7144 G145 65You stay out drinking late at the bar,
Em146 D147 66You see more your friends than you do your kids.
Cmaj7148 G149 67I'd always hoped for better,
Em150 D151 68Thought maybe together you and me would find it,
Cmaj7152 G153 69I got no plans I ain't going nowhere,
Em154 D155 70so take your fast car and keep on driving.
Cmaj7156 G157 Em158 D159 X2 72
Cmaj7160 C161 G162 73So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
C163 G164 74The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
Em165 C166 75City lights lay out before us
Em167 D168 76And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.
C169 Em170 D171 77And I had a feeling that I belonged
C172 Em173 D174 Em175 C176 Em177 78And I had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.
Cmaj7178 G179 Em180 D181 X2 80
Cmaj7182 G183 81You got a fast car.
Em184 D185 82But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
