Verse

Bsus   E                                       Asus2             Bsus
In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway American dream
    E                                         Asus2      Bsus
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines

Pre-chorus

   A                      C#m/G#
Sprung from cages out on highway nine,
       F#m                         C#m/G#                 E
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected and steppin' out over the line
D/E    A                     C#m/G#
Oh - Baby this town rips the bones from your back
        F#m                C#m/G#
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
         E                    C#m/G#
We gotta get out while we're young
        E/A            Bsus                 E
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run
Riff 1 +  E,  E,  Asus2,  Bsus            Riff &  E,  E,  Asus2,  Bsus
                       Yes girl we were                        (Wendy)

Verse

Bsus  E
Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
          Asus2                   Bsus
I want to guard your dreams and visions
      E
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
     Asus2                       Bsus
and strap your hands 'cross my engines

Pre-chorus

  A                           C#m/G#
Together we could break this trap
      F#m               C#m/G#                E     D/E
We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back    Oh
          A                      C#m/G#
Will you walk with me out on the wire
       F#m                        C#m/G#
Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
       E                C#m/G#
But I gotta know how it feels
          E/A                          Bsus                     E
I want to know if love is wild, babe I want to know if love is real
Riff 1 +  E,  E,  Asus2,  Bsus
                         Oh can you show me

Bm7 Dsus    D          Dsus     D            Gsus  G      Gsus  G
Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Asus             A            Asus  A
Girls comb their hair in rear view mirrors
            Csus C           Csus  C
And the boys try to look so hard
         Dsus   D         Dsus     D
The amusement park rises bold and stark
            Gsus       G               Gsus  G
as kids are huddled on the beach in the mist
        Asus     A                Asus     A
I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
      Csus C        Csus  C
in an ever lasting kiss     Huh!

 E                                       Asus2              Bsus
Highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive

I'll love you with all the madness in my soul   Oh

                A               Bsus                 E
But till then tramps like us   baby we were born to run
