  INTRO

  D  A  G    D  A  x2


  VERSE I

D            A             G
Blonde hair blowing in the summer wind
              D            A
The blue-eyed girl playing in the sand
     D         A           G      
I've been on a trail for a little while
                 D              A                      G
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand


  VERSE II

        Bm
Teenage rush, she said
Em                  A
 "Ain't we all just runaways?"
       G                   Bm
We got time but that ain't much
         A           G
We can't wait 'til tomorrow


  PRE-CHORUS

          A                 Bm
You gotta know that this is real
      G             D
Baby, why you wanna fight it?
         Bm                  G
It's the one thing you can't choose 
   A5  B5  G
Oh!


  VERSE III

A5      B5          G5
We got engaged on a friday night
             D5            A5
I swore on the head of our unborn child
D5                A5          G5
That I could take care of the three of us
               D5          A5                       G5
But I got the tendency to slip when the nights gets wild


  VERSE IV
           B5
It's in my blood
E5                        A5 
  She said she might just runaway
          G5               B5
Somewhere else, some place good
         A           G
We can't wait 'til tomorrow


  PRE-CHORUS

          A                 Bm
You gotta know that this is real
      G             D
Baby, why you wanna fight it?
         Bm                  G
It's the one thing you can't choose 
             A
Let's take a chance

Baby, we can't lose


  CHORUS
                  D       A  G
Ain't we all just runaways?

I knew it when I met you
D             A           D   A  G
I'm not gonna let you runaway
                        D              A
I knew it when I held I wasn't lettin' go


 VERSE V
           F#m
We used to look at the stars 
       Bm
And confess our dreams
          G
Hold each other 'til the morning light
   D                     Bm
We used to laugh, now we only fight
A                      G
Baby, are you lonesome now?


  VERSE VI
               D         A          G
And at night I come home after they go to sleep
                 D       A
Like a stumbling ghost I haunt these halls
          D          A         G
There's a picture of us on our wedding day
                 D          A                     G5
I recognize that girl but I can't settle in these walls
         A           G
We can't wait 'til tomorrow


  PRE-CHORUS

          A                 Bm
Now we're caught up in the appeal
      G             D
Baby, why you wanna hide it?
         Bm               G
It's the last thing on my mind
  A
I turn the engine over and  my body just comes alive!


  CHORUS
                  D       A  G
Ain't we all just runaways?

I knew it when I met you
D             A          D   A  G
I'm not gonna let you runaway
                        D              A
I knew it when I held I wasn't lettin' go, oh, oh, oh, oh!
D          A        G
  Ain't we all just runaways
  D   A
Yeah, runaways!
D          A        G
  Ain't we all just runaways
  D   A5  B5  G
Yeah!

Great tab! I put a capo on first fret (standar tuning) and plays F instead of f# etc. sounds good aswell.

@hoaks12 Yeah, that's great for an open-chords mode. I tabbed it the way I saw Dave Keuning actually played, cheers!
