  Intro:    C     G     D     x4

 
            C          G      D           Em
  It's about fifteen hundred miles to California 
C                     G         D         
  They'll get there Friday if they leave tonight 
C             G             D           Em
  She sneaks out at three thirty in the morning 
            C            G        D          G    
  Leaves a note so she won't see her daddy cry


  C    G    D        x2


   C          G               D             Em
  He cuts the engine when he coasts in the driveway
 C                   G             D          
  She slides in and gives him one kiss for the road
        C            G          D             Em
  No friends and no family, no job out there waiting
              C              G              D         G
  The whole town will call them crazy but they gotta go


           C    G       D          Em
  'Cause when you're young and in love, yeah 
       C              G                D           
  You might do some things that don't seem all that smart
           C    G     D         Em               C          G
  'Cause there ain't no greater distance than the eighteen inches from your
   D             G     
  Head to your heart


  C   G    D        x2


            C           G         D       Em
  They can barely make rent on a rundown apartment
   C             G          D     
  She's waiting tables and he's a valet
             C           G             D           Em
  They're behind on the bills and the car's barely running 
      C          G             D              G
  But he buys a ring with the tips that he's saved


           C    G       D          Em
  'Cause when you're young and in love, yeah 
       C              G                D           
  You might do some things that don't seem all that smart
           C    G     D         Em               C          G
  'Cause there ain't no greater distance than the eighteen inches from your
   D             G     
  Head to your heart 
 
   C    G    D

   
   Em                       D                               C    D   C
  Last thing they need is another mouth to feed, but they won't call
   Em                       D                       C    G     C
  Just kids themselves but that's all to change in nine more months

 
C               G            D            Em
  She wakes him up at three thirty in the morning
C           G             D          
  Ready or not their new life's gonna start
C         G       D     Em
  Seven pounds and eighteen inches
              C             G           D            G    
  The doctor lays that new baby's head right on her heart

  C    G    D


           C    G       D          Em
  'Cause when you're young and in love, yeah 
       C              G                D           
  You might do some things that don't seem all that smart        
        C    G           D         Em
  But thank God for those eighteen inches 
       C          G             D            G
  The distance it is from your head to your heart


  C    G    D        x4


  End on C

I could be wrong, but it sounds like there should be a capo on the 2nd fret, not the 3rd (according to the album version
