Intro -2x-: Gb  Db  Ab     Ab

Verse:
Gb        Db
 We drove right past
Ab       Ab
 That no trespassing sign
Gb            Db
 We sat on the tailgate
Ab               Ab
 And watched the planes take off

Verse:
Gb                     Db
 We thought we had all night
                     Ab   
There was no need to rush
                  Ab
That's when those cops
             Gb
Came pulling up
    Db
And I thought
Ab                   Ab
Man, ain't this some shhhh

Chorus:
                   Gb      Db
Your daddy's gonna kill me
       Ab          Ab
But if I survive tonight
                  Gb        Db
I wouldn't change one thing
Ab                          Ab
Baby, yeah I know it sounds crazy
              Gb
But there was somethin bout the way
    Db
The blue lights were shinin
Ab                          Ab
Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
      Gb
I was too busy watching you
Db
Going wild child
      Ab                     Ab 
To be worried about going to jail

You were thinking that
Gb
Running for it
Db
 Would make a good story
      Ab                         Ab
I was thinking you were crazy as hell
                Gb
And you were so Innocent
Db
 But you were stealing my heart
Ab                     Ab                Gb Db Ab    Ab
 I fell in love in the back of a cop car

Verse:
Gb         Db
 Man, they weren't playin
Ab                     Ab
 They sure threw those cuffs on quick
Gb            Db
 You tried to sweet talk 'em
Ab           Ab
 They didn't fall for it, but I did
Gb               Db
 You were on the left
             Ab   
I was on the right
                  Ab
I knew you didn't smoke
         Gb
When you asked him for a light
    Db
And I laughed
   Ab                  Ab
He got mad and slammed the door

Verse:
                   Gb      Db
Your daddy's gonna kill me
       Ab          Ab
But if I survive tonight
                  Gb        Db
I wouldn't change one thing
Ab                          Ab

Gb     Db     Ab     Ab, 
-oh oh oh ooh-          oh, and you were like
Gb  Db  Ab     Ab
-oh oh oh ooh-

Bridge:
Side by side

And locked in tight

They were taking their time

But we didn't mind

We talked

And we laughed

We sat real close

By the time they let us go
              Gb   Db
I was already gone

Interlude:Ab  Ab  Gb  Db  Ab  Ab
