[Verse]
         E                  E
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
          Dsus2          | E | % |
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
E                     E       
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' 
        Dsus2            E
“Little Runaway” - I was flyin'


[Chorus]
      D5      G      E
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
     E           G       A
That never would come to me
D5           G    E
Workin' on a mystery
E         G       A 
Goin' wherever it leads
A       G      E
Runnin' down a dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
      Dsus2                       | E | % |
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
    E                   E
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
       Dsus2             | E | % |
It was always cold, no sunshine


[Chorus]
      D5      G      E
Yeah, runnin' down a dream
     E           G       A
That never would come to me
D5           G    E
Workin' on a mystery
E         G       A 
Goin' wherever it leads
A       G      E
Runnin' down a dream

I rolled on as the sky grew dark

I put the pedal down to make some time
        E                      E
There's something good waitin' down this road
    Dsus2                | E | % |
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine

E |------------0------|
B |------------0------|
G |------------1------|
D |------------2------|
A |--2-1-0-----2------|
E |-0-0-0-0-3--0------|
