Getaway  Bryan Adams

From the 1998 album 'On a day like Today' Tabbed by Tom Atkinson.
This sounds right to me and it hasn't been tabbed before.
If you find a fault e-mail me at
Some useful chord shapes (6th string at top)
G Am7 C D Admittedly the Am7 looks strange but use it 'cause
it sounds ace and flows quite nicely from the G chord
[3]0 [3]1 [3]1 [2]3
0 0 0 2
0 2 2 0
2 0 3 0
[3] [3]  
Intro: G Am7 C G
Verse 1:
[G] Drove all night from New York City
[Am7] in ya best friend's car
[C] Knocked on my door 'bout five-thirty
[G] Nursin' a broken heart
Still got your keys in your back pocket
Still got your jacket on
Back doors open baby, I don't lock it
We can leave anytime we want
I got my[C] motor runnin'
fingers drummin'
I never planned to [D]stay
Geta[C]way, you know it's now or never
Geta[G]way, nobody lives forever
[Am7] We're only waitin' just to[C] make our geta[G]way
Hey baby, we were good together
Thought you'd always be my girl
But lookin' back now we were just too clever
Thinkin' love would change the World
You know there's[C] no point in waitin'
[C] Hesitatin'
[C] We gotta leave to[D]day!
Chorus and then the chorus chords vamp round for (true to Bryan form) a few hours
with some improvised solos on top and a few lines from the chorus thrown in. True
fans will know what I'm on about.
