C9 G Pop works in the shop til eight C9 Mom's on the phone and she's kind of irate G D C Cadd9 C Cmaj7 Sally's doing sommersaults on the lawn G Pop slams open the front screen door C9 Just to scare mom She says, "What the hell did you do that for?" G D C Cadd9 C Cmaj7 He washes his dirty hands in the sink G And things around the table are kind of rough C9 Mom says it's pa Pa says, "Times are just tough" G D C Cadd9 C Cmaj7 Me and Sally don't say much of nothing at all G The garage door light brightens up the night C9 Pa always works on cars when he gets in a fight G D As though he could figure out that woman by working on that C Cadd9 C Cmaj7 old car G He said a car can cure any problem at all C9 Cause seeing all those parts makes a fight look so small G D But I wish he'd put me and Sally in the backseat and C Cadd9 C Cmaj7 drive us away G That's when he sits me down he said he's gonna teach me about life C9 He said, "a man needs a car and a boy needs a bike" G D I got my first taste of freedom C Cadd9 C Cmaj7 beneath the light of the moon F G But if it were me F G I'd have the guts F G C Cmaj7 Am I'd put to test those bolts and nuts Em Am And I'd Ride C D G Away so fast, so far G Put away our tools We go back inside C9 Mom feels left out and now she's starting to cry G D C Cadd9 C Cmaj7 I wonder if all girls are crazy this way G I wish pops would just get a spine C9 I said I know it's little but you can borrow mine G D C Cmaj7 Cadd9 C He just smiles and says, "Your mom means well, son" G Most times are good it's just some that are lame C9 But love makes up for those times in beteween G D C Cadd9 He got a tear in his eye as he took mamma's hand C Cmaj7 G said one day I'd understand F G But if it were me F G I'd have the guts F G C Cmaj7 Am I'd put to test those bolts and nuts Em Am And I'd Ride C D Em Away so fast, so far Am C D Em Ride Away so fast so far Am C D Ride Away Outro: Em
