Born To Run

INTRO: G D C (2x) 

       G                                         C             D 
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream 
     G                                         C          D 
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines 
  C                   G   
Sprung from cages on Highway 9  
          C                         D                    C 
chrome wheeled, fuel injected and, steppin' out over the line 
Baby this town rips the bones from your back,  
         Am                D 
it's a death trap, it's a suicide rap. 
            C                 Am      (A2 Am A2) 
We gotta get out while I'm still young 
         C             D                   G 
'Cause tramps like us baby we were born to run. 

Hey Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend, 
        C                     D 
I wanna guard your dreams and visions. 
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims, 
      C                      D 
Strap your hands across my engines. 
      C               G 
And Together we could break this trap, 
       C                    D                   C 
We'll run till we drop and, baby we'll never go back. 
Walk with me out on the wire? 
         Am                   D 
Girl, I'm just a scared and a lonely rider, 
      C                 Am    (A2 Am A2) 
But I gotta know how it feels, 
I want to know if love is wild, baby, 
    D                     G 
I want to know if love is real. 

  D                                     F 
Beyond the palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard 
The girls comb their hair in rear-view mirrors 
         Am                D 
and the boys try to look so hard 
The amusement park rises bold and stark 
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist 
I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight 
     Am           D 
In a everlasting kiss 

Well, The highways jammed with broken heroes 
      C                    D 
On a last chance power drive 
Everybody's out on the run tonight 
            C                D 
But there's no place left to hide 
   C                     G 
Together, Wendy, we can live with the sadness 
C                          D              C 
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul 
         G                                   Am 
Someday girl, I don't know when, we're gonna get to that place 
Where we really wanna go 
 C                    Am (A2 Am A2) 
And we'll walk in the sun 
Till then tramps like us 
D                   G 
Baby we were Born To Run.
