About this tab version
As with my other bass tabs, this is written in a linear fashion to try to convey a sense of rhythm. One dash equals one eighth note. Guitar chords and lyrics included. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I think the guitar part sounds better with chords played one whole step lower with a CAPO
on the 2nd fret, but these open chords will match the song and the bass part. For the 
bass part,
one dash equals one eighth note.

[VERSE]
       F#m           F#m                         Bm        Bm
  They made up their minds      And they started packing
      C#7             C#7              F#m      F#m
  And left before the sun cBme up that day
     F#7      F#7           Bm          Bm
  An exit to eternal summer slacking
      F#m                       C#7                  F#m       F#m
  But where were they going without ever knowing the way?

  They drank up the wine       And they got to talking
      C#7            C#7               F#m      F#m
  But now had more important things to say
      F#7                F#7               Bm          Bm
  And when the car broke down they started walking
      F#m                       C#7                  F#m     E7
  But where were they going without ever knowing the way?

[CHORUS]
                     A                         E
  Anyone can see the road that they walk on is paved with gold
  F#m                        C#7
  It's always summer they'll never get cold
          D                         A                 E          E7
  They'll never get hungry, they'll never get old and grey
                    A                 E
  You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere
       F#m                         C#7
  They won't make it home but they really don't care

  They wanted the highway  They're happier there today       Today...

      C#7             C#7              F#m      F#m

  They just drove off and left it all behind 'em
