Intro: E0 0
G1 2In the night, in the beat city light,
Em2 D3 G4 3we steal ourselves away and hold on tight.
5You were there, yeah we were all there,
Em5 D6 G7 6too young, too smart, too much for this one town.
Em8 D9 C10 7When we'd get so high we got lost coming down.
Am11 Em12 G13 10When we were kids in the street, kids in the street.
Am14 Em15 G16 11When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street.
13Remember when we...
Em17 C18 G19 16We used to laugh, we used to cry,
18live and die by the forty-five.
Em20 C21 G22 19Take me back, I'll go there.
21Who could stop us, and who would...
Am23 Em24 G25 22...care, always keep to the kids in the street.
Interlude -x4-: E26 24
G27 26We were dreams, we were American graffiti scenes.
Em28 D29 G30 27No war, no peace, no hopes, no me just us.
29And the songs with the words we'd sing wrong,
Em31 D32 G33 30we'd drive until that jealous sun fell down.
Em34 D35 C36 31Just to wash ourselves in the moonlight summer sounds.
Am37 Em38 G39 34When we were kids in the street, kids in the street.
Am40 Em41 G42 35When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street.
37Remember when we...
Em43 C44 G45 40We used to laugh, we used to cry,
42live and die by the forty-five.
Em46 C47 G48 43Take me back, I'll go there.
45Who could stop us, and who would...
Am49 Em50 G51 46...care, always keep to the kids in the street.
Bm52 G53 49And we never felt, so alive.
Bm54 G55 50And we'd dance, all night, under the sky.
Em56 C57 51We'd live, we'd breath, we'd die.
Em58 D59 52When the world, stood, still, for you and I.
G60 57Candles burn, 'cause the world will always turn
Em61 D62 G63 58I'll burn both ends until my fire's out
Em64 D65 C66 59Lost in the darkness I can still scream out.
Em67 C68 G69 62We used to laugh, we used to cry,
64say goodbye to I-35.
Em70 C71 G72 65Take me back, down a dirty road,
67where it went we didn't care to know.
Em73 C74 G75 68a glory night is a story saved.
70Mark the chapter, but turn the...
Am76 Em77 G78 71...page, always keep, to kids in the street.
Am79 Em80 G81 72When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street.
