         A                 
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
          G               A
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
                                              G             
Trees flew by, me and Del was singin', little Runaway 
      A
I was flyin'


         D       C      A
Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream
                 C       D
That never would come to me
             C    A             C       D 
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
        C      A
Runnin' down a dream


  A
I felt so good, like anything was possible
      G                             A
I hit cruise control, and rubbed my eyes
                                   
The last tree days, the rain was un-stoppable 
       G                  A
It was always cold, no sunshine


         D       C      A
Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream
                 C       D
That never would come to me
             C    A             C       D 
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
        C      A
Runnin' down a dream


  A
I rolled on, as the sky grew dark
          G                        A
I put the pedal down, to make some time

There's something good, waitin' down this road
    G                      A
I'm pickin' up, whatever's mine


         D       C      A
Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream
                C        D
That never would come to me
             C    A   A         C       D 
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
        C      A
Runnin' down a dream

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
