Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 


[Verse 1]

Cmaj7          G*
You got a fast car.
Em7                 Dadd11
I want a ticket to anywhere.
Cmaj7           G*
Maybe we make a deal,
Em7                    Dadd11
Maybe together we can get somewhere.
Cmaj7             G*
Any place is better.
Em7                      Dadd11
Starting from zero, got nothing to lose.
Cmaj7                 G*
Maybe we'll make something,
Em7               Dadd11     
Me myself, I got nothing to prove.


[Instrumental]
 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 


[Verse 2]

Cmaj7          G*
You got a fast car
Em7                 Dadd11
I got a plan to get us out of here:
Cmaj7           G*
I been working at the convenience store,
Em7                 Dadd11
Managed to save just a little bit of money.
Cmaj7          G*
Wont't have to drive too far
Em7                 Dadd11
Just 'cross the border and into the city, 
Cmaj7          G*
You and i can both get jobs
Em7                 Dadd11
And finally see what it means to be living.


[Instrumental]
 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 


[Verse 3]

Cmaj7          G*
You see my old man's got a problem:
Em7                 Dadd11
He live with the bottle, thats the way it is.
Cmaj7          G*
He says his body's too old for working,
Em7                 Dadd11
His body's too young to look like his.
Cmaj7          G*
My mama went off and left him, she wanted more from life than he could give,
Em7                 Dadd11
I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him."
Cmaj7          G*
So I quit school and that's what I did.


[Instrumental]
 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 


[Verse 4]

Cmaj7  G* 
You got a fast car
Em7  Dadd11 
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
Cmaj7  G* 
We gotta make a decision:
Em7  Dadd11 
Leave tonight or live and die this way.


[Bridge]

Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11  Cmaj7  G*


[Chorus]
 
Em    Dadd11              C
 I remember when we were driving, driving in your car,
     G
The speed so fast i felt like i was drunk,
Em7
  City lights lay out before us
          D
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    C   Em7      D  
And I_____ had a feeling that i belonged
    C   Em7      D                           C           D
And I_____ had a feeling i could be someone, be someone, be someone.


[Instrumental]
 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 
Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11 


[Verse 5]

Cmaj7  G*
You got a fast car
 Em7  Dadd11 
And we go cruising to entertain ourelves;
Cmaj7  G*
you still ain't fot a job
 Em7  Dadd11 
And work in a market as a checkout girl.
Cmaj7  G*
I know things will get better:
 Em7  Dadd11 
You'll find work and I'll get promoted, 
Cmaj7  G*
We'll move out of the shelter
 Em7  Dadd11 
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs.


[Bridge]

Cmaj7  G*  Em7  Dadd11  Cmaj7  G*


[Chorus]
 
Em    Dadd11              C
 I remember when we were driving, driving in your car,
     G
The speed so fast i felt like i was drunk,
Em7
  City lights lay out before us
          D
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    C   Em7      D  
And I_____ had a feeling that i belonged
    C   Em7      D                           C           D
And I_____ had a feeling i could be someone, be someone, be someone.

[Verse 6]

Cmaj7  G*
You got a fast car
Em7  Dadd11 
And i got a job that pays all our bills.
Cmaj7  G*
You stay out drinking late at the bar,
Em7  Dadd11 
See more your friends than you do your kids.
Cmaj7  G*
I'd always hoped for better,
Em7  Dadd11 
Thought maybe together you and me would find it,
Cmaj7  G*
I got no plans i ain't going nowhere,
Em7  Dadd11 
so take your fast car and kep on driving.
