Cm                               Gm 
  It seems like all the world is fighting 
Bb                         F            F7 
 They're even talking of a war (ooo ooo ooo) 
Let all the Russians and the Chinese

Drop all your work 
E          A 
Leave it behind 
D               G 
Forget all your problems 
C#            F# 
And get in my car 
           C#         F# 
And take a drive with me 

    F              Bb 
The sandwiches are packed 
    E             A 
The tea is in the flask 
      Eb        Ab 
We've plenty of beer 
    D          G 
And gooseberry tarts 
          D          G 
So take a drive with me

  We'll take your mother if you want to 
Bb                           F               F7 
  We'll have a picnic on the grass  (ooo ooo ooo) 

Forget your nephews and your cousins 
And your brothers and your sisters 
They'll never miss us 
              G  D     G  D     G  D     G  D 
'Cos we'll be drivin', drivin'. drivin'. drivin' 
F            Bb 
Thousands of trees 
E           A 
Hundreds of fields 
D           G 
Millions of birds 
   C#            F# 
So why don't you come 
           C#         F# 
And take a drive with me 

      F           Bb 
We'll talk to the cows 
    E            A 
And laugh at the sheep 
      D        G 
We'll lie in a field 
    C#           F# 
And we'll have a sleep 
          C#         F# 
So take a drive with me 

Cm                            Gm 
  And all the troubled world around us 
Bb                   F            F7 
  Seems an eternity away (ooo ooo ooo) 
And all the debt collectors, rent collectors 
All will be behind us 
But they'll never find us 
              G  D     G  D     G  D     G  D 
'Cos we'll be drivin', drivin', drivin', drivin'

We won't be home late 
     D        G 
It's not very far 
          D          G          D          G    
So take a drive with me, take a drive with me
