Intro -x2-: G  B  E

Verse:
  G       B            E      G          B                
Been through the ring ah-a couple times-
        E        B           G        
I came up caloused and cruel,
                    E         G          B     
And my my two friends know this very well-
               E       G         B            
Because they went through it too.
               E        G      B  
The three of us were initiates-
              E     G      B                  
We had to learn how to deal, 
                  E        G          B      
And when we spotted a second chance-
              E       G       
We had to learn how to steal.

Pre-Chorus -no chords-:

Hollowed, out, and filled up, with hate,

All we, want is, you to give us a break. 

Chorus: 
G              B          E             
 We're drivin' fast in my car-
G             B        E                                
 We got our riot gear on, but we just want to have fun.
G              B           E                             
 No we're not lookin' for violence, no-uh-whoa,
G           B          E                              
 Tonight we wanna have fun-

Interlude: G   B   E 

Verse:
                 E         G         B       
No one's the same as they used to be-
              E        G    B             
Much as we try to pretend, 
              E         G        B       
No one's as innocent as could be-
         E        G        B              
We all fall short we all sin. 
              E        G        B      
But now we are lookin' backward-
                  E        G     B      
We won't start raisin' the dead,
             E        G           B          
We only see what's in front of us-
           E            G              
We only see straight ahead. 

Pre-Chorus -no chords-:

Hollowed, out, and filled up, with hate,

All we, want is, you to give us a break. 

Chorus: 
G              B          E             
 We're drivin' fast in my car-
G             B       E                                
 We got our riot gear on, but we just want to have fun.
G              B           E                             
 No we're not lookin' for violence, no-uh-whoa,
G           B          E                              
 Tonight we wanna have fun-

G   B                           G        B            
       Get in the car and we'll drive around-
                         G      B        
We'll make believe we are free,
                        G              B       
Already proved we could tough it out-
            G              B ...        
And we get along so sweetly!

Chorus: 
G              B          E             
 We're drivin' fast in my car-

 We got our riot gear on, but we just want to have fun.

G           B          E                              
 Tonight we wanna have fun-    -Oh, ah, ahh oh...-
G              B          E             
 We're drivin' fast in my car-
G              B          E             
 We're drivin' fast in my car-
G              B           E                             
 And we're not lookin' for violence, no-uh-whoa,
G              B          E             
 We're drivin' fast in my car-
G           B          E                              
  And we just want to have fun.
