Verse
[Bsus]In the [E]day we sweat it out in the streets of a [Asus2]runaway American d[Bsus]ream
At n[E]ight we ride through mansions of glory in [Asus2]suicide mac[Bsus]hines
Pre-chorus
Spr[A]ung from cages out on h[C#m/G#]ighway nine,
Chrome [F#m]wheeled, fuel injected and s[C#m/G#]teppin' out over the li[E]ne
[D/E]Oh - Ba[A]by this town rips the [C#m/G#]bones from your back
It's a d[F#m]eath trap, it's a s[C#m/G#]uicide rap
We gotta [E]get out while we're y[C#m/G#]oung
`Cause t[E/A]ramps like us, [Bsus]baby we were born to [E]run
Riff 1 + E, E, Asus2, Bsus Riff & E, E, Asus2, Bsus
Yes girl we were (Wendy)
Verse
[Bsus]Wendy [E]let me in I wanna be your friend
I want to [Asus2]guard your dreams and vi[Bsus]sions
Just w[E]rap your legs 'round these velvet rims
and s[Asus2]trap your hands ?cross my en[Bsus]gines
Pre-chorus
To[A]gether we could break this t[C#m/G#]rap
We'll [F#m]run till we drop, [C#m/G#]baby we'll never go ba[E]ck [D/E]Oh
Will you w[A]alk with me out on the [C#m/G#]wire
Cause b[F#m]aby I'm just a scared and l[C#m/G#]onely rider
But I g[E]otta know how it [C#m/G#]feels
I want to [E/A]know if love is wild, babe I [Bsus]want to know if love is r[E]eal
Riff 1 + E, E, Asus2, Bsus
Oh can you show me
