G       C9 
 
G        
   Pop works in the shop til eight 
    C9 
   Mom's on the phone and she's kind of irate 
G               D                     C   Cadd9  C  Cmaj7 
   Sally's doing sommersaults on the lawn 
G 
   Pop slams open the front screen door 
    C9 
   Just to scare mom 
   She says, "What the hell did you do that for?" 
G               D           C             Cadd9  C  Cmaj7 
   He washes his dirty hands in the sink 
G 
   And things around the table are kind of rough 
   C9 
   Mom says it's pa 
   Pa says, "Times are just tough" 
G                          D                   C   Cadd9  C  Cmaj7 
   Me and Sally don't say much of nothing at all 
G 
   The garage door light brightens up the night 
      C9 
   Pa always works on cars when he gets in a fight 
G                                      D 
   As though he could figure out that woman by working on that 
        C   Cadd9  C  Cmaj7 
   old car 
G 
   He said a car can cure any problem at all 
          C9 
   Cause seeing all those parts makes a fight look so small 
G                              D 
   But I wish he'd put me and Sally in the backseat and 
     C            Cadd9  C  Cmaj7 
   drive us away 
                   G 
   That's when he sits me down he said he's gonna teach me about life 
                C9 
   He said, "A man needs a car and a boy needs a bike" 
             G                      D 
   I got my first taste of freedom 
                             C     Cadd9  C  Cmaj7 
   beneath the light of the moon 
 
F                  G 
   But if it were me 
F                G 
   I'd have the guts 
F              G            C    Cmaj7       Am 
   I'd put to test   those bolts        and nuts 
           Em  Am 
   And I'd Ride 
     C  D              G 
   Away   so fast, so far 
 
G 
   Put away our tools 
   We go back inside 
    C9 
   Mom feels left out and now she's starting to cry 
G                       D                C      Cadd9  C  Cmaj7 
   I wonder if all girls are crazy this way 
G 
   I wish pops would just get a spine 
              C9        
   I said I know it's little but you can borrow mine 
G                          D                 C     Cmaj7   Cadd9  C 
   He just smiles and says, "Your mom means well, son" 
G 
   Most times are good it's just some that are lame 
        C9 
   But love makes up for those times in beteween 
             G                     D            C    Cadd9 
   He got a tear in his eye as he took mamma's hand 
C            Cmaj7         G 
   said one day I'd understand 
 
F                  G 
   But if it were me 
F                G 
   I'd have the guts 
F              G               C    Cmaj7      Am 
   I'd put to test      those bolts       and nuts 
           Em   Am 
   And I'd Ride 
     C  D              Em 
   Away   so fast, so far 
     Am    C  D             Em 
   Ride  Away   so fast so far 
     Am    C  D 
   Ride  Away 
 
(end on Em with upward strum)
