Straightaway  Devonsquare

[Bbm]My life's a prison

Gets me down
I've spent a [Db]lifetime in this sleepy old town
I need a [Ebm]straightaway
So I can get up some [Bbm]speed
[Bbm]If dreams were money

I'd have it made
Cause I've had a [Db]thousand dreams watch them all fade
I need a [Ebm]straightaway
So I can get up some [Bbm]speed
I have the [Db]same old dream each and [Ab]every night
I'm on a [Ebm]jet black highway without a [Bbm]curve in sight
[Db]Take that dream and [Ab]hold on tight
You know I [Ebm]gotta get away
[Gb]I need a [Bbm]straight[Gb]away   [Ab]
I need a [Bbm]straight[Gb]away   [Ab]
I need a [Bbm]straight[Gb]away   [Ab]
I need a [Gb]straightaway
Yes I [Bbm]do
[Bbm]I'm like a tiger

Pace my cage
Working [Db]forty hour weeks for no wage
I need a straigh[Ebm]taway
So I can get up some [Bbm]speed

My life's a prison

Gets me down
I've spent a [Db]lifetime in this sleepy old town
I need a [Ebm]straightaway
So I can get up some[Bbm] speed
I have the [Db]same old dream each and [Ab]every night
I'm on a [Ebm]jet black highway without a [Bbm]curve in sight
[Db]Take that dream and [Ab]hold on tight
You know I [Ebm]gotta get away
[Gb]I need a [Bbm]straight[Gb]away   [Ab]
I need a [Bbm]straight[Gb]away   [Ab]
I need a [Bbm]straight[Gb]away   [Ab]
I need a [Gb]straightaway
Yes I [Bbm]do
