       E                                       A                     Bsus
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream.
   E                                          A         B
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines.
A                    E/G#              F#m
Sprung from cages on Highway 9, chrome wheeled, fuel injected, 
    E/G#                      E
and steppin' out over the line.
D/E A                       E/G#
Oh, baby this town rips the bones from your back.
       F#m                E/G#
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap.
         E                        C#m
We gotta get out while we're young.
             A         B                     E    A Bsus B
'Cause tramps like us, baby, we were born to run.

E  A Bsus B

       E   
Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend, 
        A                     Bsus
I wanna guard your dreams and visions.
     E      
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims, and 
A                          Bsus
strap your hands 'cross my engines.
  A               E/G#
Together we could break this trap.
      F#m                    E/G#                E
We'll run till we drop, and, baby we'll never go back.
D/E          A                       E/G#
Oh, will you walk with me out on the wire?
            F#m                    E/G#
'Cause, baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider, 
      E                      C#m         A    
but I gotta know how it feels, I want to know if love is wild, babe, 
  B                           
I want to know if love is real.

E A                     Bsus B
   Oh, come and show me.

Beyond the Palace hemipowered drones  scream down the boulevard.
      Asus           A       Asus A               Csus        C       Csus C
Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors and the boys try to look so hard.
     Dsus         D      Dsus          D
The amusement park rises bold and stark as kids are 
Gsus           G          Gsus G
huddled on the beach in a mist.
        Asus          A             Asus      A           Csus C      Csus C
I wanna die with you, Wendy, on the streets tonight in an everlasting kiss.

The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive.
     E                                      A                Bsus B
Ev'rybody's on the run tonight, but there's no place left to hide.
  A                     E/G#
Together, Wendy, we can live with the sadness, 
     F#m                   E/G#          E
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul.
D/E A                 E/G#                         F#m
Oh, some day, girl, I don't know when, we're gonna get to that place 
         E/G#         E                         C#m
where we really wanna go, and we'll walk in the sun.
               A               B                     E   C#m
But till then, tramps like us, baby, we were born to run!
           A               B                     E   C#m
Ah, honey, tramps like us, baby, we were born to run!
                A               B                     E 
Come on, Wendy. Tramps like us, baby, we were born to run!
