Verse 1: (Same as intro riff)
            B5             D5
Rewind the clock we were, ridin' a wave
       B5                D5
Of Oz rock we were, but barely of age
         B5                     D5                    A5
To take charge, or pack our guitars for the long flight
          G5
She be alright
            B5                   D5
No cash or plan we were, criss-crossing the states
         B5             D5
In some van we were, c-c-cooking our beans
        B5                        D5
On the block while the motor was hot
                    A5                     G5
Something's got to blow, let's get to the show


Pre-Chorus
A5
Give us half an inch
         B5
We will tack on a mile
D5
Give us a half stage
       E5
We'll start up a rampage


Chorus:
B5
Throw on your back pack
D5
Throw out your road map
B5
God'll use anything
D5               E5
Check it and see
      B5
He's given us more than we
D5
Ever could ask for
A5                                     G5
That's the way we roll , 'cause we've been set free
A5                                    G5
That's the way we roll, 'cause we've been set free


Verse 2: (Same as intro riff)
           B5                 D5
Reset the stage we were, out rattling the cage
           B5                D5
With each show we were, out hawkin' them shirts
          B5
For more lights, 'till shine hit the brights
                 A5                      G5
And we saw your faces, and we got new bassists
              B5             D5
Good and the lame we were, spinning our drums
        B5             D5
Like a dial we were, blowing up domes
        B5                     D5
From a pile, it worked for a while
                 A5            G5
If yours didn't rise, we apologize


Pre-chorus 2:
A5                       B5
All we got to give is a God-given drive
    D5                  E5
He keeps us movin', He keeps on provin'


[Chorus]

The bridge is the only part that I am not sure on as far as chords go. If anyone has any 
suggestions, please say so in the comments.

Bridge:
B5
Starting up
       D5                         B5
We'll lighten up the load at the startin' gate
      D5                       B5
We'l lighten up the load to a fightin' weight
       D5
We'll light up the road
                  A5
C'mon, kiss your mamma goodbye
           G5
We got to fly


[Chorus] (Quietly (Single Strums) + Lead part)


[Chorus]


End:
A5                                    G5            B5(hold)
That's the way we roll, 'cause we've been set free
