1. Blonde hair blowing in the summer wind,

          F             C              G

    a blue eyed girl playing in the sand,

            C                 G          F

    I'd been on her trail for a little while,

             F                C                      G                                     F

    but that was the night that she broke down and held my hand.

 

                   Am                   - Dm                         G

    Teenage rush, she said,         ain't we all just runaways ?

                 F                            Am                    G              F

    We got time and that ain't much, we can't wait 'till tomorrow.

                        G                    Am              F                      C

    You gotta know that this is real, baby, why you wanna fight it?

                Am            G               F

    It's the one thing you can't choose. Oh!    + G - Am - F

 

      C              G                 F

2. We got engaged on a Friday night,

           F                 C               G

    I swore on the head of our unborn child

           C                   G                  F

    that I could take care of the three of us,

           F                C                  G                                   F

    but I've got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild.

 

                     Am    - Dm                                      G

    It's in my blood,         she said she might just runaway,

                        F                         Am                   G              F

    somewhere else, someplace good, we can't wait 'till tomorrow.

                        G                    Am              F                      C

    You gotta know that this is real, baby, why you wanna fight it?

                Am            G               F 

    It's the one thing you can't choose.

                          G                                G7

    Let's take a chance, baby, we can't lose !

 

                          C               - G - F

Ain't we all just runaways ?

      F                                 C                    G         C             - G - F

I knew it when I met you, I'm not gonna let you runaway.

       F                                     C                 G

I knew it when I held you, I wasn't letting go.

 

                        Em                                 Am

+  We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams,

                       F                               Dm

     hold each other 'till the morning light,

            C                                 Am

    We used to laugh, now we only fight,

      G                                    F

    baby, are you lonesome now?

 

                     C                G             F

3. At night I come home after they go to sleep

                 F               C       G

    like a stumbling ghost I haunt these halls.

                     C             G               F

    There's a picture of us on our wedding day,

                F            C           G                             F

    I recognize the girl but I can't settle in these walls.

 

                     G              F                           G                         Am

    We can't wait 'till tomorrow, no we're caught up in the appeal,

                F                      C                       G                        F

    baby, why you wanna hide it ? It's the last thing on my mind,

       G                                                                      G7

    I turn the engine over and my body just comes alive.

 

                          C               - G - F

Ain't we all just runaways ?

      F                                 C                    G         C             - G - F

I knew it when I met you, I'm not gonna let you runaway.

      F                                      C                 G

I knew it when I held you, I wasn't letting go.

 

    G7              F                      - G         F                 - G

+  Oh, oh oh, runaways, yeah,    runaways, yeah !        + G - Am - F
