------------------------------- Message Contents -------------------------------


          E 0--7--0--6--0--5--0--3--0---------------

                 [E]It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
                 I had the ra[D]dio on, I was driv[E]in'
The trees went back, me and Del were singin'
                 Little Run[D]away, I was so blin[E]d
Chorus: D G E
Yeah, Runnin' down a dream
                 N[E]ever would c[G]ome to m[A]e
                 [D]Workin' on [G]a myster[E]y
                 [E]Goin' where[G]ver it lea[A]ds
                 [D]Runnin' dow[G]n a drea[E]m
                  [E]I felt so good, like anything was possible
                  Hit cru[D]ise control, and rub my e[E]yes
Last three days, the rain was unstoppable
                  (It) was[D] always cold, no sunshin[E]e
Repeat Chorus
Break: It is just C (riff) D (riff) E (riff) Play 2X
                 [E]I rolled on, the sky grew dark
                 I put the pe[D]dal down, to make some ti[E]me
There's something good, waiting down this road
                 I'm pickin[D]' up, whatever is [E]mine
Repeat chorus 2X, then Break part, and add SOLO!
Enjoy! Mark....

It was a [E]beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the [D]radio on. I was driv[E]in'
Trees flew by, me and Del was singin' little [D]runaway
I was [E]flyin'
Yeah I'm [A]runnin' [G]down a [E]dream
That [E]never would [G]come to [A]me
[A]Workin' on a [G]myste[E]ry, [E]goin' where[G]ver it [A]leads
[A]Runnin' [G]down a [E]dream
I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last tree days the rain was un-stoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine
I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine

I fixed the lyrics and made the format of the layout more consistent.

I've cleaned up the layout, corrected the chords, and added the missing "woohoo's" at the end.

Some chords were not in the right places specifically the first line of the chorus.
