Verse:
G
  Long drive, long night. The best night of my life.                                       
                                      Em
With you, riding. Your hand on my hand.                                               
                   C                            G
The thought of arriving kind of feels like dying. 

I don't want to go home and be alone.

Could we stay out, could you


               Em
Drive a little slower, don't matter where we're going.
                    C                             G
As long as I'm with you. We can take the long way. 

Verse:
G
 Chevy Nova, front seat sofa.

Getting closer to you.
               Em
Drive a little slower, don't matter where we're going.
                    C                             G
As long as I'm with you. We can take the long way. 

Chorus:
               Em
Drive a little slower, not ready to go home,
           C
I'd rather stay with you.
                     G   G 
We can take the long way out.
       Em
To the country, out of town.
          C
Let's get lost, I don't wanna be found.
           G   G 
Let's get away now.
       Em
And be careful not to crash.
           C
There's no defrost and we're steaming the glass.
            Em
You and the road have a generous shoulder.
               D                              Em
We can pull over and say we took the long way.

Bridge:
C D Em
      Head lights, strobe lights.
      C
I can see you, but not quite.
      D
I can feel you inside.
    Em
The timing is just right.
    C                          D
The moment, I don't want to go home.

Chorus:
                     G   G 
We can take the long way out.
   Em                 C
Waoh  Waoh Waohwaohwaoh
                     G   G 
We can take the long way out.
   

    Em                 C
Waoh  Waoh Waohwaohwaoh

            
               Em                                        C
Drive a little slower, don't matter where we're going now.

Waoh.
                    Em                                   C
Drive a little slower, don't matter where we're going now.

Waoh.
               Em
Drive a little slower, don't matter where we're going.
                        C                             G
I'd rather stay with you, we can can take the long way.
