         E5
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down.
          D5              E5      (riff 1)
I had the radio on. I was drivin'.
E5
Trees went by, me and Del was singin',
        D5              E5
"Little Runaway", I was flyin'.

Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream,

that never would come to me.
A            G    E  (riff 2)
Workin' on a mystery,
E         G       A     (riff 3)
goin' wherever it leads.
A       G      E      (riff 1)
Runnin' down a dream.

Verse 2
I felt so good, like anything was possible.
I hit cruise control, and rubbed my eyes.
The last tree days, the rain was unstoppable.
It was always cold, no sunshine.

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

Verse 3
I rolled on, the sky grew dark.
I put the pedal down, to make some time.
There's something good, waitin' down this road.
I'm pickin' up, whatever is mine.

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus
