Intro:
Dmaj7 A  F#m E x4

Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
F#m                 E
I want a ticket to anywhere.
Dmaj7           A
Maybe we make a deal,
F#m                    E
Maybe together we can get somewhere.
Dmaj7        A
Any place is better.
F#m                      E
Starting from zero, got nothing to lose.
Dmaj7            A
Maybe we'll make something,
F#m               E
Me myself, I got nothing to prove.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
F#m              E
I got a plan to get us out of here:
Dmaj7                 A
I been working at the convenience store,
F#m                     E
Managed to save just a little bit of money.
Dmaj7                   A
Won't have to drive too far
F#m                         E
Just 'cross the border and into the city,
Dmaj7         A
You and I can both get jobs
    F#m                  E
And finally see what it means to be living.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

         Dmaj7              A
You see, my old man's got a problem:
   F#m                               E
He live with the bottle, that’s the way it is.
   Dmaj7                       A
He says his body's too old for working,
    F#m                  E
His body's too young to look like his.
   Dmaj7             A             F#m                         E
My mama went off and left him, she wanted more from life than he could give,
         Dmaj7                  A
I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him."
   F#m                       E
So I quit school and that's what I did.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
          F#m                    E
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
Dmaj7             A
We gotta make a decision:
F#m                        E
Leave tonight or live and die this way.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

                                D
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    A
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
F#m
City lights lay out before us
         E
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.
    D F#m      E
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    D F#m      E                              D          E
And I   had a feeling I could   be someone, be someone, be someone.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
    F#m                     E
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves;
Dmaj7                 A
you still ain't got a job
      F#m                    E
And I work in a market as a checkout girl.
Dmaj7                  A
I know things will get better:
F#m                   E
You'll find work and I'll get promoted,
Dmaj7                 A
We'll move out of the shelter
F#m                     E
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

                                D
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    A
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
F#m
City lights lay out before us
         E
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.
    D F#m      E
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    D F#m      E                              D          E
And I   had a feeling I could   be someone, be someone, be someone.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
    F#m               E
And I got a job that pays all our bills.
Dmaj7                 A
You stay out drinking late at the bar,
        F#m                         E
You see more your friends than you do your kids.
Dmaj7                A
I'd always hoped for better,
F#m                     E
Thought maybe together you and me would find it,
Dmaj7                  A
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere,
   F#m                     E
so take your fast car and keep on driving.

Dmaj7 A  F#m E X2

Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
          F#m                    E
But is it fast enough so you can fly away?
Dmaj7             A
You gotta make a decision:
F#m                        E
Leave tonight or live and die this way.
