Boy Needs A Bike  Jewel


   [G]    [C9]     [D]    [C]   [Cadd9]       [Cmaj7]       [F]    [Am]    [Em]                                            

[G]        [C9]   [G]   Pop works in the shop til eight
   M[C9]om's on the phone and she's kind of irate
[G]   Sally's doing[D] sommersaults on the l[C]awn[Cadd9] [C] [Cmaj7]
[G]   Pop slams open the front screen door
   J[C9]ust to scare mom
She says, "What the hell did you do that for?"
[G]   He washes his[D] dirty hands[C] in the sink[Cadd9] [C] [Cmaj7]
[G]   And things around the table are kind of rough
   [C9]Mom says it's pa
Pa says, "Times are just tough"
[G]   Me and Sally don't say m[D]uch of nothing at al[C]l[Cadd9] [C] [Cmaj7]
[G]   The garage door light brightens up the night
   Pa [C9]always works on cars when he gets in a fight
[G]   As though he could figure out that w[D]oman by working on that
   old c[C]ar[Cadd9] [C] [Cmaj7]
[G]   He said a car can cure any problem at all
   Cause s[C9]eeing all those parts makes a fight look so small
[G]   But I wish he'd put me and S[D]ally in the backseat and
   dr[C]ive us away[Cadd9] [C] [Cmaj7]
   That's when he s[G]its me down he said he's gonna teach me about life
   He said, "A m[C9]an needs a car and a boy needs a bike"
   I got my f[G]irst taste of freedom[D]
   beneath the light of the m[C]oon[Cadd9] [C] [Cmaj7]
[F]   But if it were m[G]e
[F]   I'd have the g[G]uts
[F]   I'd put to t[G]est   those b[C]olts [Cmaj7]       and n[Am]uts
   And I'd [Em]Ride[Am]
   Aw[C]ay [D]  so fast, so f[G]ar
[G]   Put away our tools
We go back inside
   M[C9]om feels left out and now she's starting to cry
[G]   I wonder if all girls[D] are crazy this w[C]ay[Cadd9] [C] [Cmaj7]
[G]   I wish pops would just get a spine
   I said I kn[C9]ow it's little but you can borrow mine
[G]   He just smiles and says,[D] "Your mom means w[C]ell, s[Cmaj7]on"[Cadd9] [C]
[G]   Most times are good it's just some that are lame
   But l[C9]ove makes up for those times in beteween
   He got a t[G]ear in his eye as he t[D]ook mamma's h[C]and[Cadd9]
[C]   said one d[Cmaj7]ay I'd underst[G]and
[F]   But if it were m[G]e
[F]   I'd have the g[G]uts
[F]   I'd put to t[G]est      those b[C]olts [Cmaj7]      and n[Am]uts
   And I'd [Em]Ride[Am]
   Aw[C]ay [D]  so fast, so f[Em]ar
   Ri[Am]de  Aw[C]ay [D]  so fast so f[Em]ar
   Ri[Am]de  Aw[C]ay[D]
(end on Em with upward strum)
