Dmaj70 A1 F#m2 E3 x4 1
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.
Dmaj720 A21 F#m22 E23 X2 11
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.
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.
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.
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.
Dmaj7108 A109 F#m110 E111 X2 54
D112 55So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
A113 56The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,

E115 58And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder.
D116 F#m117 E118 59And I had a feeling that I belonged
D119 F#m120 E121 D122 E123 60And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone.
Dmaj7124 A125 F#m126 E127 X2 62
Dmaj7128 A129 63You got a fast car.
F#m130 E131 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 70so take your fast car and keep on driving.
