Running down a dream  Tom Petty


                 [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
