1. I could take my time, I could speed you up,

                 D          A              D      A      G

    I could pull you in till you can't get enough.

            Bm                              A       - A7

    Let's go, slip sliding in my veins.

 

               D                      A

’Cause this life is only chains,

      Bm                                             G

it's nothing like the colours in my dreams.

I just wanted to be Steve McQueen,

              Bm           A                       G

and my horses of English racing green,

Bm                         A                    D

you and me and British racing green.

2. And it can hold us down, it can break your pride,

            D           A                     D         G

    if it gets too rough you can climb inside.

             Bm                             A       - A7

    Let's go, slip sliding in my veins.

              D               A

            Bm                     A                 G

    that you and I we're never going home.

               D                              A

    Since we don't wanna be alone,

                  Bm - A - G                          A        - A7

    here we go                sliding in my veins.

 

+  CHORUS

 

              D                               A

+  And this life is always the same,

           Bm                                            G

    it's nothing like the colours in our dreams.

 

 

 

 

                    D                                     A

    We just wanted to be Steve McQueen

                  Bm             A                      G

    with our horses of English racing green,

     Bm                    A                   G

    you and me in British racing green.

    You and me, Steve McQueen.
