Life In The Fast Lane  Eagles

       [D]                              
1. He was a hard headed man, he was brutally handsome,

[E]                         [D]           [E] [-] [D] 
and she was terminally pretty.

[E]                         [D]           [E] [D] 
She held him up, and he held her for ransom

                [E]                [D]    [E] [-] [D] 
in the heart of the cold, cold city.

                     [A]                
He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude,

             [E]                        
they said he was ruthless, they said he was crude,

                    [B7]                 
they had one thing in common, they were good in bed.

                      [-]  [A]             
She'd say, "Faster, faster, the lights are turnin' red!"

[E]                     [D]              [E] [D] 
Life in the fast lane, surely make you lose your mind.

[E]E - D (4x)           [D]             [E]       [-]  [D]

Life in the fast lane, mm.

      [E]             [D]                 [E] [D] 
2. Eager for action and hot for the game,

            [E]              [D]          [E] [D] 
the coming attraction, the drop of a name.

                [D]                     
They knew all the right people, they took all the right pills,

       [D]                              
they threw outrageous parties, they paid heavily bills.

                        [-]  [A]           
There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face,

                 [E]                    
she pretended not to notice, she was caught up in the race.

      [B7]                               
Out every evening until it was light,

                  [A]                   
he was too tired to make it, she was too tired to fight about it.



[E]                     [D]              [E] [D] 
Life in the fast lane, surely make you lose your mind.

[E]                     [D]             [E]  [-] [D] 
Life in the fast lane, mm.

[E]                    [D]              [E]  [D] 
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time.

[E]                     [D]               [E] [-] [D] 
Life in the fast lane, uh huh.

B7 - D B7 - D - E ~ ~

       [E]                 [D]            [E] [D] 
3. Blowin' and burnin', blinded by thirst,

               [D]                      
they didn't see the stop sign, took a turn for the worst.

                     [D]                
She said, "Listen, baby, you can hear the engine ring,

                         [E]           [D] 
We've been up and down this highway,

                   [E]                 [D] 
haven't seen a goddam thing."

                   [-]  [A]                
He said, "Call the doctor, I think I'm gonna crash.”

             [E]                        
The doctor says he's coming, but you gotta pay him cash."

                      [B7]               
They went rushin' down that freeway, messed around and got lost,

[A]                                     
they didn't care they were just dying to get off.
