[Verse]

 
You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|--5-------------|
E|-----5-5--2--0--|

We won't have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living
G|--------------|

You see my old man's got a problem
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

He says his body's too old for working
I say his body's too young to look like his
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|--5-------------|
E|-----5-5--2--0--|

My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

I said somebody's got to take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

[Chorus]

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|--5--5--7-0---------7--9--9--5-0-7--7--|
E|------------5--5--5--------------------|

And I had, had a feeling that I belonged
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----9--7--|
E|-----5--------|

And I had, had a feeling I could be someone, 
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----9--7--|
E|-----5--------|

be someone, be someone

[Verse 2]

You got a fast car
 And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|--5-------------|
E|-----5-5--2--0--|

I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
G|--------------|
D|--------------|

[Verse 2]

You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|--5-----------|
E|-----5--2--0--|

I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|--5-------------|
E|-----5-5--2--0--|

I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving
