Verse: 
C             G  
We broke down trying to leave town
Am                      F
Flying down the road to change
        C            G  
We were born to run, Cali here we come
Am                    F
Escape from nowhere usa


C
Say goodbye to white picket fences
G
Say hello to palm trees and Benzes
Am                                   F 
They say you gotta fall to have it all

Yeah
C
We don’t want two kids and a wife

I don’t want a job I just want a life
Am
Sometimes the underdogs rise
F
And the mighty fall

‘Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago

The world is spinning too fast for you and me

So tell me whatever happened to the American dream
