[Intro]

Cmaj7 G   Em Dsus4   Cmaj7 G   Em Dsus4 (X2)


[Verse 1]

Cmaj7          G
You got a fast car,
Em                 Dsus4
I want a ticket to anywhere.
Cmaj7           G
Maybe we make a deal,
Em                    Dsus4
Maybe together we can  get somewhere.
Cmaj7             G
Any place is better.
Em                      Dsus4
Starting from zero, got nothing to lose.
Cmaj7                 G
Maybe we'll make something,
Em               Dsus4
Me myself, I got nothing to prove.

[Verse 2]

Cmaj7          G
You got a fast car
Em               Dsus4
And I got a plan to get us out of here
       Cmaj7              G
I been working at the convenience store
Em               Dsus4
Managed to save just a little bit of money
Cmaj7                  G
Won't have to drive too far
      Em                  Dsus4
Just cross the border and into the city
Cmaj7      G
You and I can both get jobs
    Em                  Dsus4
And finally see what it means to be living

[Verse 3]

        Cmaj7        G
You see my old man's got a problem
   Em                   Dsus4
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
            Cmaj7           G
He says his body's too old for working
     Em                 Dsus4
His body's too young to look like his
   Cmaj7             G
My mama went off and left him
     Em                        Dsus4
She wanted more from life than he could give
         Cmaj7                  G
I said, "somebody's got to take care of him"
    Em               Dsus4
So I quit school and that's what I did

[Verse 4]

Cmaj7          G
You got a fast car
           Em                   Dsus4
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
Cmaj7               G
We gotta make a decision
Em                           Dsus4
We leave tonight or live and die this way

[Chorus 1]

Em   Dsus4        C
I remember when we were driving, driving in your car
    G
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
Em
City lights lay out before us
         D
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
    C  Em       D
And I.... had a feeling that I belonged
    C  Em       D                           C           D
And I.... had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

[Verse 5]

Cmaj7          G
You got a fast car
    Em                       Dsus4
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
    Cmaj7              G
You still ain't got a job
      Em               Dsus4
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
Cmaj7                   G
I know things will get better
Em                    Dsus4
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
Cmaj7                G
Well move out of the shelter
Em                  Dsus4
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs

The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
Em
City lights lay out before us
         D
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
    C  Em       D
And I.... had a feeling that I belonged
    C  Em       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
    Em               Dsus4
And I got a job that pays all our bills
    Cmaj7             G
You stay out drinking late at the bar
    Em                            Dsus4
See more of your friends than you  do of your kids
C                    G
I'd always hoped for better
        Em           Dsus4
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
C                      G
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
   Em                   Dsus4
So take your fast car and keep on driving
