[INTRO]
        E

[VERSE 1]
A E On a desert Christmas morning, 1981
B One month shy of six years old
F#m In the valley of the sun
A E My first two-wheel bicycle stood by the tree
F#m My heart thumping in my chest
A B Though I'd tried, I couldn’t ride one yet

[VERSE CONTINUED]
A E Out on our street when my dad let go of the seat
F#m I rode off and down the road
A B Somehow I never went back home
[CHORUS 1]
E But I remember what it was like
A Astride my yellow bike
E First freedom, second life
A All the places I could ride
G#m Leaving early packing light
C#m B A A/G# That little ache inside
F#m A My kingdom for someone to ride with

[VERSE 2]
A E Now a highwayman who traded in his handlebars
B Going back and forth
F#m In vans and rental cars
A E On the 10, the 5, the 90, and the 95
F#m In love with every stretch of road
A B But when I drive them on my own

[CHORUS 2]
G#m They remind me what it was like
C#m B A A/G# Astride that yellow bike
F#m A My kingdom for someone
[BRIDGE]
A Some folks are loners
G#m And you learn from them
F#m If you've always been a joiner
E On the move again
A But if you keep your legs pumping
G#m Despite everything
F#m Well, you can take that sting
A B You can make it swing
[CHORUS 3]
E Just remember what it was like
A Astride that yellow bike
E First freedom, second life
A All the places I could ride
G#m Leaving early packing light
C#m B A A/G# That little ache inside
F#m A My kingdom for someone to ride with
F# Am E I'd trade my kingdom for someone to ride with
