[Intro]

C G Dm Dm
C G Dm Dm


[Verse]
  C                     Em7
I Kicked in his door at 5 am
      F
"I've come for my bike" I told the repo man
   C                   Em7
My 920's gonna take me far today
        F                                   C
You can travel for miles and never leave L. A.

C G Dm Dm

[Chorus]
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
     F
I've gone 500 miles today
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
    F
And never even left L. A.

C G Dm Dm

[Verse]
  C                            Em7          
I drive by the Plaza where the gay boys pose
F
Stand in their windows wearing no clothes
  C                        Em7
I heard the screams of the dying dark
            F
Through the sweet green icing of MacArthur Park

           C                      Em7
And then I crossed the river into East L. A.
   F
Pescado mojado me encontre
        C           Em7
And I'm given up on rock 'n roll
        F
And I'm saving up for norteño


    C                     Em7
The river she runs by the railroad tracks
  F
I swear I'll never take it back
  C                       Em7
A train, she cries on the midnight hour
F
All along the Watts Tow---er

Ohhhhhhhhhhh

C G Dm Dm
C G Dm Dm

[Chorus]
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
     F
I've gone 500 miles today
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
    F
And never even left L. A.


[Verse]
  C                  Em7
I darted down to San Pedro Bay
F
Watched my ship sail in, watched her sail away
    C                  Em7 
The sun was sinking in-to the sea
F
But a ball of fire inside of me

    C                    Em7
Was burning my motor and driving me hard
F
Past the big hair on the Boulevard
    C                     Em7
And up Mulholland where I made the scene
F
Like the one that took little Jimmy Dean

           C                           Em7
And then I shimmied up Wilshire like a little silk worm
         F
Past the rodeo and the pachyderm
           C                        Em7
And then I stopped for coffee at an art cafe
          F
I saw the repo man and made my getaway

          C                   Em7
Doing the Eagle Rock, heading for the hills
   F
Oh tried to let my engines cool
          C                 Em7
And it is not my fault that this town shakes
          F                  C      G
I saw the falling rock and I hit my brakes


[Chorus]
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
     F
I've gone 500 miles today
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
    F
And never even left L. A.


[Segue]
        C                  Dm
Now you tow it to the repo man's front door

And you give him these keys, I don't need 'em no more
    C                  Em7
You tow it to the repo man's front door
        Dm                                       G
And you give him these keys, I don't need 'em no more...


[Chorus]
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
     F
I've gone 500 miles today
     C                     Em7
I've come a long way, I've come a long way
    F
And never even left L. A. ...
