Last night they loved you 
Opening doors and pulling some strings, angel

In walked luck and you looked in time
Never look back, walk tall, act fine
(Come get up my baby)

(Come get up my baby)


One of these days, and it won't be long
Gonna drive back down where you once belonged
In the back of a dream car, twenty foot long
Don't cry my sweet, don't break my heart
Doing all right, but you gotta get smart
Wish upon, wish upon, day upon day,
I believe oh lord, I believe all the way (Come get up my baby)
Run for the shadows, run for the shadows
Run for the shadows in these golden years


There's my baby, lost that's all
Once I'm begging you, save her little soul
Golden years, gold, whop whop whop
(Come get up my baby)


Don't let me hear you say life's 
Taking you nowhere, angel
(Come get up my baby)
Run for the shadows, run for the shadows
Run for the shadows in these golden years


I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years, gold


Golden years, gold, whop whop whop
Golden years, gold, whop whop whop
Golden years, gold, whop whop whop......

Very nice.

"Fill" part is easier to play if you finger it like this, though:
