Verse 1: 

E                     F#m           A             E    F#m  A   
Put your hands on the wheel Let the golden age begin
E                  F#m       A                    E    F#m  A  
Let the window down feel the moonlight on your skin
E              F#m  A                  E    F#m  A  
Let the desert wind cool your aching head
E                       F#  A               E    F#m  A  
Let the weight of the world drift away instead


Chorus 1:

D  A    F#m       A           E   F#m
Ohh   These days I barely get by
A              E  F#m  A  E  (riff)
I don't even try


Verse 2:

E                  F#m         A            E    F#m  A  
It's a treacherous road with a desolated view
E                  F#m                 A          E    F#m  A  
There's distant lights but here they're far and few
E                     F#m         A      E    F#m  A  
And the sun don't shine even when its day
E                     F#m           A               E    F#m  A  
You gotta drive all night just to feel like you're ok


Chorus 2:

D  A    F#m       A           E   F#m
Ohh   These days I barely get by
A              E  F#m  A  E  (riff)
I don't even try
A              E  F#m  A  E  (riff)
I don't even try
A              E  F#m  A  E  (riff)
I don't even try


(fade out)
