INTRO: D G A   D G A

         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



              D
 Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
               G                                  A
 I want to guard your dreams and visions
        D
 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
           G
 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
         G
 Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
                A#
 And the boys try to look so hard
       C
 The amusement park rises bold and stark
             F
 Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
         G
 I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
           A#
 In an everlasting kiss


        D                                       G                A
 The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
          D
 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
             Em
 we're gonna get to that place
          F#m           D
 Where we really want to go
                       Bm
 and we'll walk in the sun
                 G
 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
 Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
