Gmaj7 D  Bm A x4

Gmaj7          D
You got a fast car.
Bm                 A
I want a ticket to anywhere.
Gmaj7           D
Maybe we make a deal,
Bm                    A
Maybe together we can get somewhere.
Gmaj7        D
Any place is better.
Bm                      A
Starting from zero, got nothing to lose.
Gmaj7            D
Maybe we'll make something,
Bm               A     
Me myself, I got nothing to prove.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2

Gmaj7          D
You got a fast car.
Bm              A
I got a plan to get us out of here:
Gmaj7                 D
I been working at the convenience store,
Bm                     A
Managed to save just a little bit of money.
Gmaj7                   D
Won't have to drive too far
Bm                         A
Just 'cross the border and into the city, 
Gmaj7         D
You and I can both get jobs
    Bm                  A
And finally see what it means to be living.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2

         Gmaj7              D
You see, my old man's got a problem:
   Bm                               A
He live with the bottle, thatís the way it is.
   Gmaj7                       D
He says his body's too old for working,
    Bm                  A
His body's too young to look like his.
   Gmaj7             D             Bm                         A
My mama went off and left him, she wanted more from life than he could give,
         Gmaj7                  D
I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him."
   Bm                       A
So I quit school and that's what I did.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2

Gmaj7          D
You got a fast car.
          Bm                    A
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
Gmaj7             D
We gotta make a decision:
Bm                        A
Leave tonight or live and die this way.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2
 
Gmaj7                       G                D
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    G                         D
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
Bm              G     
City lights lay out before us
         Bm                     A
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    G Bm      A  
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    G Bm      A                  Bm          G           Bm
And I   had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2

Gmaj7          D
You got a fast car.
    Bm                     A
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves;
Gmaj7                 D
you still ain't got a job
      Bm                    A
And I work in a market as a checkout girl.
Gmaj7                  D
I know things will get better:
Bm                   A
You'll find work and I'll get promoted, 
Gmaj7                 D
We'll move out of the shelter
Bm                     A
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2

Gmaj7                       G                D
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    G                         D
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
Bm              G     
City lights lay out before us
         Bm                     A
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    G Bm      A  
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    G Bm      A                  Bm          G           Bm
And I   had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2

Gmaj7          D
You got a fast car.
    Bm               A
And I got a job that pays all our bills.
Gmaj7                 D
You stay out drinking late at the bar,
        Bm                         A
You see more your friends than you do your kids.
Gmaj7                D
I'd always hoped for better,
Bm                     A
Thought maybe together you and me would find it,
Gmaj7                  D
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere,
   Bm                     A
so take your fast car and keep on driving.

Gmaj7 D  Bm A X2

Gmaj7                       G                D
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    G                         D
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
Bm              G     
City lights lay out before us
         Bm                     A
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    G Bm      A  
And I   had a feeling that I belonged
    G Bm      A                  Bm          G           Bm
And I   had a feeling I could -- be someone, be someone, be someone.

Gmaj7          D
You got a fast car.
          Bm                    A
But is it fast enough so we can fly away?
Gmaj7             D
We gotta make a decision:
Bm                        A
