You got a fast car
And I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal 
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Any place is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us outta here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
Won’t have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

VERSE: RIFF

You see my old man's got a problem
He lives with the bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
His body's too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more to life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast car 
But is it fast enough so we can fly away? 
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

CHORUS:

                    C
So remember we were driving driving in your car
    G
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
       Em
And the city lights lay out before us
         Dsus4
And your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
    C  Em        D
And I  -  I had a feeling that I belonged
    C  Em         D
And I   - I had a feeling I could be someone
C          D
Be someone, be someone

VERSE: RIFF

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs

you got a fast car
and I got a job that pays all our bills
you stay out drinking late at the bar
see more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
so take your fast car and keep on driving

this is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever known!!
-John Penny | 1/5/2006
hey this sounds awesome!!!! :) capo 2nd fret to play with the normal version of the song.
-luke0166 | 2/15/2006
This is a great song...one of my favorites. Tracy Chapman is a great songwriter and vocalist. This tab is pretty close, but not quite right as far as the recording goes. The chords are all correct though and it would definately work for a "version" of the song. Good job.

Looks pretty good to me,,, well done!!!!!!
