Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I found the Cadd9 chord a much nicer sound and seems to be a better fit than the 
chords used in the previous versions on here. I also continued the chord patterns 
throughout the entire song for us newbies, not just once for the first verse and 
first chorus, etc.

IN THE CHORUS, YOU CAN CHANGE IT UP A BIT IF YOU'D LIKE (C [in place of Cmaj7], G 
[in place of Cadd9], and D [in place of Dadd4]). THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

[Intro]

(Cmaj7, Cadd9, Em7, Dadd4)  X4
------------------------------


[Verse 1]

Cmaj7          Cadd9
You got a fast car
Em7                Dadd4
I want a ticket to anywhere

Cmaj7           Cadd9
Maybe we make a deal
Em7                   Dadd4
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Cmaj7        Cadd9
Any place is better
Em7                    Dadd4
Starting from zero got nothing to lose

Cmaj7                Cadd9
Maybe we'll make something
Em7               Dadd4     
Me, myself, I got nothing to prove

[Verse 2]

Cmaj7          Cadd9
You got a fast car
Em7             Dadd4
I got a plan to get us out of here

     Cmaj7             Cadd9
Been working at the convenience store
Em7                    Dadd4
Managed to save just a little bit of money

Cmaj7               Cadd9
Won't have to drive too far
      Em7                  Dadd4
Just 'cross the border and into the city 

Cmaj7         Cadd9        
You and I can both get jobs
    Em7                 Dadd4
And finally see what it means to be living

[Verse 3]

        Cmaj7              Cadd9
You see my old man's got a problem
   Em7                           Dadd4
He lives with the bottle, that's the way it is

            Cmaj7              Cadd9
He says his body's too old for working
    Em7                 Dadd4
His body's too young to look like his

   Cmaj7             Cadd9
My mama went off and left him 
    Em7                        Dadd4
She wanted more from life than he could give

         Cmaj7             Cadd9
I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him"
   Em7                      Dadd4
So I quit school and that's what I did

[Verse 4]

Cmaj7          Cadd9
You got a fast car
          Em7                   Dadd4
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?

Cmaj7           Cadd9
We gotta make a decision
Em7                       Dadd4
Leave tonight or live and die this way

[Chorus]
 
Em7    Dadd4                 Cmaj7
     I remember when we were driving, driving in your car

    Cadd9
The speed so fast I felt like i was drunk

Em7
  City lights lay out before us

          Dadd4
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder 

    Cadd9   Em7      Dadd4 
And I__________ had a feeling that I belonged

    Cadd9   Em7       Dadd4                       Cmaj7       Dadd4
And I__________ had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone.

[Verse 5]
Cmaj7          Cadd9
You got a fast car
    Em7                    Dadd4
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves

    Cmaj7             Cadd9
You still ain't got a job
      Em7                   Dadd4
And I work in a market as a checkout girl

Cmaj7                  Cadd9
I know things will get better
Em7                  Dadd4
You'll find work and I'll get promoted

Cmaj7                 Cadd9
We'll move out of the shelter
Em7                    Dadd4
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

[Verse 6]
Cmaj7          Cadd9
You got a fast car
    Em7                   Dadd4
And I got a job that pays all our bills

    Cmaj7             Cadd9
You stay out drinking late at the bar
    Em7                        Dadd4
See more your friends than you do your kids

Cmaj7                Cadd9
I'd always hoped for better
        Em7                    Dadd4
Thought maybe together you and me would find it

  Cmaj7                Cadd9
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
   Em7                    Dadd4
So take your fast car and keep on driving
