Intro: E

Verse:
G
In the night, in the beat city light,
   Em              D                G
we steal ourselves away and hold on tight.

You were there, yeah we were all there,
    Em                    D                 G
too young, too smart, too much for this one town.
     Em          D                       C
When we'd get so high we got lost coming down.

Pre-Chorus:
Am                       Em      G
When we were kids in the street, kids in the street.
Am                       Em      G
When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street.

Remember when we...

Chorus:
Em         C                 G
We used to laugh, we used to cry,

live and die by the forty-five.
Em      C             G
Take me back, I'll go there.

Who could stop us, and who would...
   Am           Em          G
...care, always keep to the kids in the street.

Interlude -x4-: E

Verse:
G
We were dreams, we were American graffiti scenes.
Em                   D                 G
No war, no peace, no hopes, no me just us.

And the songs with the words we'd sing wrong,
     Em               D                G
we'd drive until that jealous sun fell down.
        Em                    D                C
Just to wash ourselves in the moonlight summer sounds.

Pre-Chorus:
Am                       Em      G
When we were kids in the street, kids in the street.
Am                       Em      G
When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street.

Remember when we...

Chorus:
Em         C                 G
We used to laugh, we used to cry,

live and die by the forty-five.
Em      C             G
Take me back, I'll go there.

Who could stop us, and who would...
   Am           Em          G
...care, always keep to the kids in the street.

Bridge:
Bm                    G
And we never felt, so alive.
         Bm                           G
And we'd dance, all night, under the sky.
     Em                      C
We'd live, we'd breath, we'd die.
         Em                               D
When the world, stood, still, for you and I.

Just...

Verse:
G
Candles burn, 'cause the world will always turn
     Em             D               G
I'll burn both ends until my fire's out
     Em              D                  C
Lost in the darkness I can still scream out.

Chorus:
Em         C                 G
We used to laugh, we used to cry,

say goodbye to I-35.
Em      C                  G
Take me back, down a dirty road,

where it went we didn't care to know.
Em      C                G
a glory night is a story saved.

Mark the chapter, but turn the...
   Am           Em       G
...page, always keep, to kids in the street.
Am                       Em      G
When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street.
