"Runaway"- Mat Kearney
Standard tuning, no capo
INTRO-play this on the high “e” string five times.
E-0-0-2-2-5-5-2-2-0-0-9-9-7-7-5-5-0-0-2-2-5-5-2-2-7-7-5-5-4-4
 F#M                        D2
Tonight we're letting go, under the burning glow
A                         E
We're too young to hold this all on our own
F#m                       D2
All that came and went riding them by the winds
A                           E
Blowing through the trees, you could feel it on her skin
F#m                        D2
Walking the lost streets, no one ever shares
A                          E
Cry yourself to sleep, waiting on a little prayer
F#m                       D2
Bags are by the door, hearts are on the floor
A                           E
There's a bottle full of tears on the dresser drawer

Pre-chorus: same chord progression here. Hold D2 for transition to chorus.
F#m                 D2
Nobody knows the trouble we've seen
A                   E
Nobody knows the price of this dream
F#m                       D2
And nobody knows what it took to believe, nobody.

Chorus:
                A              F#m              D2
She wants to be free, like a runaway, hey hey hey
               A          F#m                    D2
Trying to believe, gonna find a way, hey hey hey hey
        A       Bm                    D2                E
We got just one life, tonight we're running all the lights
                 A    Bm       D2                   E
Trying to break free, like a runaway hey hey hey hey hey

(play second half of intro for the transition)
E-0-0-2-2-5-5-2-2-0-0-7-7-5-5-4-4

Verse 2:
The road below our wheels, all that we fought to heal
You close your eyes and cry, dying for the right to feel
I hear it coming down, oh the sweetest sound
Of forgotten tears falling on the solid ground

(Pre-chorus)
(Chorus)

Bridge:
F#m   D2    A
Oh,   oh,   oh, oh….
F#m   D2    A
Oh,   oh,   oh, oh….
 
              F#m         D2         A    F#m          D2        A
We're singing "How did we get this far, riding on a shooting star? "
          F#m           D2         A 
It's like flying on the wings of God
                D2 E5 A  (play E Barre chord between D2 & A)
She wants to be free           
F#m               D2
Like a runaway hey hey hey                       
              A           F#m               D2
Trying to believe, gonna find a way hey hey hey hey
             A        Bm          D2                   E
We got just on life, tonight we're running all the lights
                 A     Bm    D2                  E
Trying to break free, like a runaway hey hey hey hey hey.

Outro:
E-0-0-2-2-5-5-2-2-0-0-7-7-5-5-4-4-0-0-2-2-5-5-2-2-0-0-9-9-7-7-5-5
Here's how to play that E power chord:
E-|0
B-|0
G-|9
D-|9
A-|7
E-|0
Oh, and just a tip: Play the Bm like you would a regular barred chord, but raise 
your pointer finger so the strings you would normally barre are open. It has a nicer voicing!
FINI~
