[Verse 1]
        E                                       A                 B
In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway American dream
    E                                          A          B
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
   A                      E/G#                F#m
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,  Chrome wheeled, fuel injected
      E/G#                   E E9   A                       E/G#
and steppin' out over the line Oh  Baby this town rips the bones from your back
        F#m                E/G#                  E                   C#m
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap  We gotta get out while we're young
         A              B                    E  
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
       A                       B             A               E/G#
and strap your hands across my engines    Together we could break this trap
      F#m               E/G#                 E      E9
We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back    Oh
          A                      E/G#           F#m
Will you walk with me out on the wire    `Cause baby I'm just
             E/G#                     E                    C#m
a scared and lonely rider      But I gotta find out how it feels
            A                              B                       E
I want to know if love is wild     babe I want to know if love is real

Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Gsus4 G  Asus4          A       Asus4  A             Csus4         C      Csus4 C
The girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors And the boys try to look so hard

The amusement park rises bold and stark as Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist

I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight   In an everlasting kiss

The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
      E                                           A               B7sus4  B
Everybody's out on the run tonight   but there's no place left to hide
   A                  E/G#
Together Wendy we'll live with the sadness
      F#m                  E/G#           E     E9
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul   Oh
 A             E/G#                           F#m
Someday girl I don't know when    we're gonna get to that place
          E/G#           E                        C#m
Where we really want to go  and we'll walk in the sun
                A               B                    E   C#m
But till then tramps like us   baby we were born to run
           A               B                    E   C#m
Ah honey tramps like us   baby we were born to run
                A               B                    E
Come on Wendy tramps like us   baby we were born to run

E   E   A  B7sus4 - B
till end

This is really good!

Personally, I transpose it down a step for easier playing, though.

Good but I think the E/G# should be an A/G#, but maybe thats just me. Great though, just wish you'd give the into riff.
