[Intro]

Then use the same chord shapes, but strum instead: here's the chords

    Dsus2         D7sus2/C          Em7               Asus4
e|---0------|-------0----------|-----0-----------|------0--------------------|
B|---3------|-------3----------|-----3-----------|------3--------------------|
G|---2------|-------2----------|-----0-----------|------2--------------------|
D|---0------|-------0----------|-----2-----------|------2--------------------|
A|---0------|-------3----------|-----2-----------|------0--------------------|
E|----------|------------------|-----0-----------|---------------------------|

However: with the Asus4, when strumming, hammer off the B string 3rd fret onto the 2nd fret and then back up:
          listen to the recording and you'll get a feel for it.

Strum through twice, then go back to the picked pattern again before the verse.

[Verse]

Same pattern as intro, up until "...that happened...", then begin to strum


Dsus2         D7sus2/C Em7 Asus4 Dsus2     D7sus2/C   Em7   Asus4
Put that song on again, I didn't catch the name

Dsus2         D7sus2/C Em7 Asus4      Dsus2     D7sus2/C Em7  
But don't drone on again, how it's my fault, how I'm to blame

    Asus4           G                 Asus4                Dsus2
For everything that happened, back in Kansas, I'm running away


Dsus2         D7sus2/C          Em7               Asus4
Dsus2         D7sus2/C          Em7               Asus4


Dsus2         D7sus2/C Em7 Asus4       Dsus2     D7sus2/C   Em7           Asus4
I guess we're lost again, our car rolls on        down      highway forty nine

Dsus2         D7sus2/C   Em7 Asus4              Dsus2    D7sus2/C             Em7           Asus4
Your arms are crossed again, I know that you're silently judging me, but my job is on the line

G                                           A
  as we cross the border the snow turns to rain
 

[Chorus 1]
              Dsus2                D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4 
I'm running away and I will not go gently    into that cold dark night

Dsus2                D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4
I've been driving for hours     and I'm too tired to fight

Dsus2      D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4    Dsus2                D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4
   Let me go                       Let me go


[Bridge]

G / A / G / A

G         A        G         A (ring out)
I want to go home, I want to go home...           But I am home!


[Chorus 2] 

Dsus2              D7sus2/C  Em7      Asus4
And I will not go gently    into that cold dark night

Dsus2                D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4
I've been driving for hours     and I'm too tired to fight

Dsus2      D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4    Dsus2    D7sus2/C   Em7   Asus4
   Let me go                       Let me go

Dsus2              D7sus2/C  Em7      Asus4
And I will not go gently    into that cold dark night

Dsus2                D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4
I've been driving for hours     and I'm too tired to fight

Dsus2      D7sus2/C Em7          Asus4    Dsus2    D7sus2/C   Em7   Asus4
   Let me go                       Let me go



[Outro]

            Dsus2 /  D7sus2/C    /   Em7     /     Asus4         Dsus2 / D7sus2/C  / Em7  / Asus4 / D
I'm running away..                                 I'm running away...

LYRICS


put that song on again 
I didn't catch the name 
but don't drone on again 
how it's my fault, how I'm to blame 
for everything that happened back in Kansas 
I'm running away! 

I guess we're lost again 
our car rolls on down highway 49 
your arms are crossed again 
I know that you're silently judging me, but my job is on the line 
as we cross the border the snow turns to rain 
I'm running away 

and I will not go gently into that cold dark night 
I've been driving for hours and I'm too tired to fight 
let me go {x2} 

(there's nothing in these shadows but these hands
reaching out to sad young frightened men
the loneliest people in the whole wide world
are the ones you're never gonna see again)*

I want to go home 
I want to go home 
but I am home 

and I will not go gently into that cold dark night 
I've been driving for hours and I'm too tired to fight 
let me go, let me go 
{x2} 

I'm running away {x2}
