Intro:
Gbm     E   A   
D       D   E   
Gbm     E   A   
D       D   E   

Verse 1:
Gbm              E          A
When I was young, I fell in love
   D                                     E
We used to hold hands, man, that was enough -yeah-
Gbm              E          A
Then we grew up, started to touch
D                                                    E
Used to kiss underneath the light on the back of the bus -yeah-
Gbm                      E       A
Oh no, your daddy didn't like me much
       D                                           E
And he didn't believe me when I said you were the one
  Gbm          E          A        D
Oh, every day she found a way out of the window to sneak out late

Chorus:
                                Gbm
She used to meet me on the Eastside
        E              A         D
In the city where the sun don't set
           E                Gbm
And every day you know that we ride
                   E        A      D
Through the backstreets in a blue Corvette
               E             Gbm     E
Baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
A         D
We can go anywhere we want
       E           Gbm               E
Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat
A             D
Just take my hand and come with me

Post-Chorus:
Gbm                E             A
We can do anything if we put our minds to it
D                                    E
Take your whole life then you put a line through it
Gbm                        E           A
My love is yours if you're willing to take it
D                                        E
Give me your heart 'cause I ain't gonna break it
Gbm              E        A
So come away, starting today
D                                         E
Start a new life, together in a different place
             Gbm                     E       A
We know that love is how these ideas came to be
          D             E
So baby, run away with me

Verse 2:
Gbm            E        A               D
Seventeen and we got a dream to have a family
                            E
A house and everything in between
           Gbm         E                A
And then, oh, suddenly we turned twenty-three
           D                                        E
Now we got pressure for taking our life more seriously
            Gbm                  E         A
We got our dead-end jobs and got bills to pay
D                                   E
Have old friends and know our enemies
         Gbm                 E          A
Now I-, I'm thinking back to when I was young
            D
Back to the day when I was falling in love

Chorus:
                                Gbm
He used to meet me on the Eastside
        E              A         D
In the city where the sun don't set
           E                Gbm
And every day you know that we ride
                   E        A      D
Through the backstreets in a blue Corvette
               E             Gbm     E
Baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
A         D
We can go anywhere we want
       E           Gbm               E
Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat
A             D
Just take my hand and come with me

Post-Chorus:

We can do anything if we put our minds to it
D                                    E
Take your whole life then you put a line through it
Gbm                        E           A
My love is yours if you're willing to take it
D                                        E
Give me your heart 'cause I ain't gonna break it
Gbm              E        A
So come away, starting today
D                                         E
Start a new life, together in a different place
             Gbm                     E       A
We know that love is how these ideas came to be
          D             E
So baby, run away with me
