D G A   D G A

        D                                                G               A
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream
    D                                                              G           A
At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines
   G                 F#m
Sprung from cages on highway 9
        Em                               F#m                    D            D7
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected, and steppin' out over the line... OOOH!
G                        F#m
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
        Em                F#m
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
         D                   Bm
We gotta get out while we're young
           G            A                     D   G   A    D    G   A
'Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run
Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
              G                                  A
I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
      G                            A
and strap your hands 'cross my engines
   G              F#m
Together we could break this trap
      Em                   F#m                 D            D7
We'll run till we drop and baby we'll never go back... OOOH!
          G                                 F#m
Will you walk with me out on the wire
       Em                                               F#m
'Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
       D                       Bm
But I gotta know how it feels
I want to know if love is wild
             A                          D   G   A     D   G  A
Babe I want to know if love is real
   C                                  F
Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
And the boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
In an everlasting kiss
       D                                       G                A
The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight
            G                               A
but there's no place left to hide
   G                           F#m
Together Wendy we can live with the sadness
     Em                    F#m            D      D7
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul... OOOH!
 G             F#m
Someday girl I don't know when
we're gonna get to that place
         F#m           D
Where we really want to go
and we'll walk in the sun
But till then tramps like us
A                     D     G   
baby we were born to run
A                     D     G   
baby we were born to run
A        D

This is great! Simplified just enough that it sounds accurate but makes it easier for acoustic, strumming and singing. Only thing I do different is play G/F# (200033) instead of the F#m as it's an easy transition (just move the G shape around to G/F# then Em7 and back to G/F#) and is accurate to the record. Thanks for the great tab!
