Capo on 2nd fret.


         D                                                G               A
 In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream
     D                                                              G           A
 At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines
    G                 F#m
 Sprung from cages on highway 9
         Em                               F#m                    D            D7
 Chrome wheeled, fuel injected, and steppin' out over the line... OOOH!
 G                        F#m
 Baby this town rips the bones from your back
         Em                F#m
 It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
          D                   Bm
 We gotta get out while we're young
            G            A                     D   G   A    D    G   A
 'Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

 Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
               G                                  A
 I want to guard your dreams and visions
 Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
       G                            A
 and strap your hands 'cross my engines
    G              F#m
 Together we could break this trap
       Em                   F#m                 D            D7
 We'll run till we drop and baby we'll never go back... OOOH!
           G                                 F#m
 Will you walk with me out on the wire
        Em                                               F#m
 'Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
        D                       Bm
 But I gotta know how it feels
 I want to know if love is wild
              A                          D   G   A     D   G  A
 Babe I want to know if love is real

    C                                  F
 Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
 Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
 And the boys try to look so hard
 The amusement park rises bold and stark
 Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
 I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
 In an everlasting kiss

        D                                       G                A
 The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
 Everybody's out on the run tonight
             G                               A
 but there's no place left to hide
    G                           F#m
 Together Wendy we can live with the sadness
      Em                    F#m            D      D7
 I'll love you with all the madness in my soul... OOOH!
  G             F#m
 Someday girl I don't know when
 we're gonna get to that place
          F#m           D
 Where we really want to go
 and we'll walk in the sun
 But till then tramps like us
 A                     D     G   
 baby we were born to run
 A                     D     G   
 baby we were born to run
 A        D
