[Intro/Theme]
E E A B7sus4 – B
E E A B7sus4 – B

[Verse 1]
E A B
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream
E A B
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines

A E/G# F#m
Sprung from cages on highway 9, chrome-wheeled, fuel-injected
E/G# E D/E
and steppin’ out over the line, whoah!
A E/G#
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
F#m E/G# E C#m
It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap, we gotta get out while we’re young
A B E
‘Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

[Theme]
E E A B7sus4 – B
E E A B7sus4 – B

[Verse 2]
E A B
Wendy let me in, I wanna be your friend, I want to guard your dreams and visions
E A B
Just wrap your legs ’round these velvet rims, and strap your hands across my engines

A E/G# F#m E/G# E D/E
Together we could break this trap, we’ll run till we drop, baby we’ll never go back, whoah!
A E/G# F#m E/G#
Will you walk with me out on the wire? ‘Cause baby I’m just a scared and lonely rider
E C#m
But I gotta find out how it feels
A B E
I want to know if love is wild, babe, I want to know if love is real

[Theme]
E E A B7sus4 – B
E E A B7sus4 – B

[Sax solo]
E E A B

C#m B – E
Bm7

[Bridge]
Dsus4 D Dsus4 D Gsus4 G Gsus4 G
Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Asus4 A Asus4 A Csus4 C Csus4 C
Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors, and the boys try to look so hard
Dsus4 D Dsus4 D Gsus4 G Gsus4 G
The amusement park rises bold and stark, kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
Asus4 A Asus4 A Csus4 C Csus4 C
I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight in an ever – lasting kiss

[Break]

[Verse 3]
E A B7sus4 B
The highway’s jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
E A B7sus4 B
Everybody’s out on the run tonight but there’s no place left to hide

A E/G#
Together Wendy we can live with the sadness
F#m E/G# E D/E
I’ll love you with all the madness in my soul, whoah!
A E/G# F#m
Someday girl, I don’t know when, we’re gonna get to that place
E/G# E C#m
Where we really want to go and we’ll walk in the sun
A B E C#m
But till then, tramps like us, baby we were born to run

A B E C#m
Ah honey, tramps like us, baby we were born to run
A B E
Come on Wendy, tramps like us, baby we were born to run

[Outro/Theme]
E E A B7sus4 – B
Whoah – oh – oh – oh (etc)
E E A B7sus4 – B
E E A B7sus4 – B
E E A B7sus4 – B

E
Oh-hhh
