    A                       E7           F#m

There are countless variations on this theme throughout the song, so you can stick to 
chord shapes shown or make up your own variations.

Chord pattern example: verse 1:
Ive got the key to the highway
A                     E7
    Be allowed that I do go
F#m
Gonna leave here runnin
      A
   Walkins most too slow
E                    A (turnaround)

Heres a simple turnaround idea, which can be expanded upon if you like, although you 
have to include a turnaround at all.

B|--5-3-2-1--------|
