Intro - x2 -:
    Db Ab Gb
    Gb Db Ab

Verse:
 Db           Ab              Gb
Blonde hair blowing in the summer wind
 Gb         Db           Ab
Blue eyed girl playing in the sand
      Db           Ab            Gb
I've been on the trail for a little while
     Gb            Db              Ab                      Gb
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand

Pre-Chorus:
         Bbm
Teenage rush
         Ebm
She said
                   Ab
Ain't we all just runaways?
        Gb                  Bbm
We got time and that ain't much

Chorus:
          Ab            Gb
We can't wait 'till tomorrow
           Ab                 Bbm
You gotta know that this is real
       Gb
Baby, why you wanna fight it?
         Bbm         Db         Gb
It's the one thing you can't choose
   Ab Bbm Gb
Oh!

Verse:
Db         Ab          Gb
We got engaged on a friday night
   Gb            Db           Ab
I swore on the head of our unborn child
     Db             Ab           Gb
That I could take care of the three of us
    Gb              Db          Ab                        Gb
But I've got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild

Pre-Chorus:
            Bbm
It's in my blood
Ebm                          Ab
  You said she might just runaway
           Gb              Bbm
Somewhere else, someplace good

Chorus:
          Ab           Gb
We can't wait 'till tomorrow
           Ab                 Bbm
You gotta know that this is real
       Gb
Baby, why you wanna fight it?
         Bbm         Db         Gb
It's the one thing you can't choose
              Ab
Let's take a chance, baby we can't lose

Bridge:
                  Db   Ab    Gb
Ain't we all just runaways?
                  Gb
I knew it when I met you
Db              Ab       Db   Ab   Gb
I'm not gonna let you runaway
                  Gb
I knew it when I held you
   Db             Ab
I wasn't letting go

            Fm                       Bbm
We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams
           Gb
Hold each other 'till the morning light
    Db                     Bbm
We used to laugh, now we only fight
 Ab                    Gb
Baby are you lonesome now?

Verse:
            Db         Ab         Gb
At night I come home after they go to sleep
         Gb         Db       Ab               
Like a stumbling ghost I haunt this hall
            Db        Ab           Gb
There's a picture of us on our wedding day
        Gb        Db          Ab                     Gb
I recognize the girl but I can't settle in these walls

Chorus:
          Ab          Gb
We can't wait 'till tomorrow
           Ab                Bbm
No we're caught up in the appeal
       Gb
Baby, why you wanna hide it?
          Bbm        Db      Gb
It's the last thing on my mind - Why you wanna hide it? -
   Ab
I turn the engine over and my body just comes alive 

Bridge:
                  Db   Ab    Gb
Ain't we all just runaways?
                 Gb
I knew it when I met you
Db              Ab       Db  Ab   Gb
I'm not gonna let you runaway
                  Gb
I knew it when I held you
   Db             Ab
I wasn't letting go

                  Db   Ab    Gb
Ain't we all just runaways?
Gb  Db Ab   Db   Ab   Gb
