Intro Am G F C    Am G F F


Verse: C G Am F


           C                     G
In the backseats of burned out cars.
        Am              F
In the disenchantment lane.
          C               G             Am                     F
The ideal angels twist and turn, ask forgiveness for future mistakes.
           C                     G
But you and I we've been through this.
      Am            F
Maybe a 100 times before.
        C                  G
Always hitching rides with strangers.
      Am              F
Papa warned us about before


Chorus:

                C
But you know the summer always brought it.
     F
That wild and reckless breeze.
               C                                                F
And in the backseat, we're just trying to find some room for our knees.
             Am                          G                 F
And in the backseat, we're just trying to find some room to breathe.


Verse 2: 

            C           G            Am                      F
And in the wild desert sun, we drove straight on through the night.
            C           G                 Am         F
We rode a fever out of Austin, Dreamed of California nights.
       C                  G                Am                  F
Come July, we'll ride the Ferris Wheel, Go round and round and round.
           C            G               Am            F
And If you never let me go, well I will never let you down.


Chorus:
                 C            
But you know the summer always brought it.
     F
That wild and reckless breeze.
           C                                                     F
And in the backseat, we're just trying to find some room for our knees.
           Am                             G                F
And in the backseat, we're just trying to find some room to breathe.

               Am                             G                F
And now in the backseat, we're just trying to find some room to breathe.

     
Bridge:

     Em                  F            G      G
And these cowboys all go crazy in the heat.
           Em                   F
Chasing the lights in all the girls
         G                     G                         C
Along the Santa Anna streets that they're just dying to meet.


(C)    F                     C          F
         It meant nothing to me.


             C         
You know the summer always brought it.
      F
That wild and reckless breeze.
           C                                                    F
And in the backseat we're just trying to find some room for our knees.

(3x)
