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
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?

[VERSE]
       F#m                F#m                  Bm         Bm
  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
       D                           A               E         C#7       C#7
  They wanted the highway  They're happier there today       Today...

  Their children woke up      And they couldn't find them
      C#7             C#7              F#m      F#m
  And left before the sun cBme up that day
       F#7                F#7           Bm          Bm
  They just drove off and left it all behind 'em
