[Intro]

Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Verse 1]
Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
F#m                Eadd4
I want a ticket to anywhere.
Dmaj7           A
Maybe we make a deal,
F#m                   Eadd4
Maybe together we can get somewhere.
Dmaj7        A
Any place is better.
F#m                     Eadd4
Starting from zero, got nothing to lose.
Dmaj7            A
Maybe we'll make something,
F#m               Eadd4    
Me myself, I got nothing to prove.

[Instrumental]
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Verse 2]
Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
F#m              Eadd4
I got a plan to get us out of here:
Dmaj7                 A
I been working at the convenience store,
F#m                     Eadd4
Managed to save just a little bit of money.
Dmaj7                   A
Won't have to drive too far
F#m                         Eadd4
Just 'cross the border and into the city, 
Dmaj7         A
You and I can both get jobs
    F#m                  Eadd4
And finally see what it means to be living.

[Instrumental]
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Verse 3]
         Dmaj7              A
You see, my old man's got a problem:
   F#m                               Eadd4
He live with the bottle, that’s the way it is.
   Dmaj7                       A
He says his body's too old for working,
    F#m                  Eadd4
His body's too young to look like his.
   Dmaj7             A             F#m                         Eadd4
My mama went off and left him, she wanted more from life than he could give,
         Dmaj7                  A
I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him."
   F#m                       Eadd4
So I quit school and that's what I did.

[Instrumental]
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Verse 4]
Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car.
          F#m                    Eadd4
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
Dmaj7             A
We gotta make a decision:
F#m                        Eadd4
Leave tonight or live and die this way.


[Instrumental]

Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Chorus]
                                  D                
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    A                         
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
F#m                  
City lights lay out before us
        Eadd4                   
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    D F#m      Eadd4  
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    D F#m      Eadd4                              D           E
And I   had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.

[Instrumental]
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Verse 5]
Dmaj7          D
You got a fast car.
    F#m                     Eadd4
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves;
Dmaj7                 A
you still ain't got a job
      F#m                    Eadd4
And I work in a market as a checkout girl.
Dmaj7                  A
I know things will get better:
F#m                   Eadd4
You'll find work and I'll get promoted, 
Dmaj7                 A
We'll move out of the shelter
F#m                     Eadd4
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs.

[Instrumental]
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Chorus]
                                  D                
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    A                         
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
F#m                  
City lights lay out before us
        Eadd4                   
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    D F#m      Eadd4  
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    D F#m      Eadd4                              D           E
And I   had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.

[Verse 6]
Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car
F#m                     Eadd4
And i got a job that pays all our bills.
Dmaj7                A
You stay out drinking late at the bar,
F#m                       Eadd4
See more your friends than you do your kids.
Dmaj7               A
I'd always hoped for better,
F#m                     Eadd4
Thought maybe together you and me would find it,
Dmaj7                    A
I got no plans i ain't going nowhere,
F#m                      Eadd4
so take your fast car and kep on driving.

[Instrumental]
Dmaj7  A  F#m Eadd4

[Chorus]
                                  D                
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    A                         
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
F#m                  
City lights lay out before us
        Eadd4                   
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    D F#m      Eadd4  
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    D F#m      Eadd4                              D           E
And I   had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.

Dmaj7          A
You got a fast car
F#m                       Eadd4
But is it fast enough so you can fly away?
Dmaj7             A
You gotta make a decision:
F#m                       Eadd4
