Intro: E  A

      Ebm         Db          B
We're taking the long way home
-Taking the long way home-


Gb
Take me back to the middle of nowhere
B
Back to the place only you and I share
Ebm               Db
Remember all the memories
B
The fireflies and make believe


Gb
Kicking back at the old school yard
B
Singing songs on our guitars
Ebm          Db
This is our reality
B
Crazy, stupid you and me


   Ebm               Db                    B
We know this is the way it's supposed to be

         Gb          Db          B
So we're taking the long way home -taking the long way-
                        Gb          Db          B
'Cause I don't wanna be wasting my time alone
            Gb             Db             
I wanna get lost and drive forever with you
              Ebm           B
Talkin' 'bout nothing yeah whatever baby
         Gb         Db         B
So we're taking the long way home -taking the long way-
Gb      Db
Tonight


B                            Gb     Db
We're taking the long way home
B
We're taking the long way home


Gb                      
Now we're stuck in the middle of nowhere
B                             
Yeah you know we took our time to get there
Ebm         Db
We're hiding out in a dream
B
Catching fire like kerosene -kerosene-


Gb                     
And you know I'd never let you down
         B
'Til the sun comes up
       
We can own this town
Ebm             Db
Something like make believe
B
Living in a movie scene


Ebm                Db                    B
Know this is the way it's supposed to be


         Gb           Db         B
So we're taking the long way home -taking the long way-
                        Gb          Db        B
'Cause I don't wanna be wasting my time alone
            Gb               Db 
I wanna get lost and drive forever with you
              Ebm            B
Talkin' 'bout nothing yeah whatever baby
         Gb          Db          B
So we're taking the long way home -taking the long way-


Ebm             Db
Hitting every red light
B             Gb
Kissing at the stop signs darling
Ebm           Db         B     
Green Day's on the radio
Ebm                 Db
And everything is alright
B                       Gb
Now we're turning off the headlights darling
Ebm          Db         B
We're just taking it slow


         Gb           Db         B
So we're taking the long way home -taking the long way-
                        Gb          Db        B
'Cause I don't wanna be wasting my time alone
            Gb               Db 
I wanna get lost and drive forever with you
              Ebm            B
Talkin' 'bout nothing yeah whatever baby
         Gb          Db          B
So we're taking the long way home -taking the long way-


Ebm             Db
Hitting every red light
B             Gb
Kissing at the stop signs darling

And everything is alright
B                       Gb
Now we're turning up the headlights darling

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
