Dmaj74          A5
2You got a fast car.
F#m6                 E7
3I want a ticket to anywhere.
Dmaj78           A9
4Maybe we make a deal,
F#m10                    E11
5Maybe together we can get somewhere.
Dmaj712        A13
6Any place is better.
F#m14                      E15
7Starting from zero, got nothing to lose.
Dmaj716            A17
8Maybe we'll make something,
F#m18               E19
9Me myself, I got nothing to prove.

Dmaj724          A25
12You got a fast car.
F#m26              E27
13I got a plan to get us out of here:
Dmaj728                 A29
14I been working at the convenience store,
F#m30                     E31
15Managed to save just a little bit of money.
Dmaj732                   A33
16Won't have to drive too far
F#m34                         E35
17Just 'cross the border and into the city,
Dmaj736         A37
18You and I can both get jobs
    F#m38                  E39
19And finally see what it means to be living.
20
Dmaj740 A41  F#m42 E43 X2
21
         Dmaj744              A45
22You see, my old man's got a problem:
   F#m46                               E47
23He live with the bottle, that’s the way it is.
   Dmaj748                       A49
24He says his body's too old for working,
    F#m50                  E51
25His body's too young to look like his.
   Dmaj752             A53             F#m54                         E55
26My mama went off and left him, she wanted more from life than he could give,
         Dmaj756                  A57
27I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him."
   F#m58                       E59
28So I quit school and that's what I did.

Dmaj760 A61  F#m62 E63 X2
30
Dmaj764          A65
31You got a fast car.
          F#m66                    E67
32But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
Dmaj768             A69
33We gotta make a decision:
F#m70                        E71
34Leave tonight or live and die this way.
35
Dmaj772 A73  F#m74 E75 X2
36
                                D76
37So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    A77
38The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
F#m78
39City lights lay out before us
         E79
40And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.
    D80 F#m81      E82
41And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    D83 F#m84      E85                              D86          E87
42And I   had a feeling I could   be someone, be someone, be someone.
43
Dmaj788 A89  F#m90 E91 X2
44
Dmaj792          A93
45You got a fast car.
    F#m94                     E95
46And we go cruising to entertain ourselves;
Dmaj796                 A97
47you still ain't got a job
      F#m98                    E99
48And I work in a market as a checkout girl.
Dmaj7100                  A101
49I know things will get better:
F#m102                   E103
50You'll find work and I'll get promoted,
Dmaj7104                 A105
51We'll move out of the shelter
F#m106                     E107
52Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs.
53
Dmaj7108 A109  F#m110 E111 X2

64And I got a job that pays all our bills.
Dmaj7132                 A133
65You stay out drinking late at the bar,
        F#m134                         E135
66You see more your friends than you do your kids.
Dmaj7136                A137
67I'd always hoped for better,
F#m138                     E139
68Thought maybe together you and me would find it,
Dmaj7140                  A141
69I got no plans I ain't going nowhere,
   F#m142                     E143
