Intro 2x: E  E  A  B7sus-B
        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  E  A  B7sus-B   E E A B7sus-B
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run
       E                                          A                     B
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 E A B7sus B
I want to know if love is wild     babe I want to know if love is real
E E A B7sus B
Instrumental: E  E  A  B7sus-B     E  E  A  B  C#m    B-E   Bm7

   Dsus       D           Dsus   D      Gsus           G        
Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Gsus G   Asus           A       Asus   A             Csus          C      Csus C
The girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors And the boys try to look so hard
   Dsus        D         Dsus       D              Gsus             G       Gsus G
The amusement park rises bold and stark as Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
       Asus           A             Asus     A           Csus  C      Csus C
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               Bsus7  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
Ah honey tramps like us   baby we were born to run
                A               B                   (E   E   A  Bsus7 B) till end
Come on Wendy tramps like us   baby we were born to run

As odd as it may sound to play this classic on a uke, this tab is perfect!
