STOLEN CAR
By Dave Bidini
On the album: The Nightlines Session and Double Live
Transcribed by Mike Kaplan and Aaron Albert
 
An incredible Rheos tune. Pick the E.
 
E
I dreamed I drove a stolen car.
 
Thru the fields across the yard.
A              C               E
Taking out the fences that I'd built between all my friends.
E
Through the snow, they shagged again.
A                     C
I said goodbye, waved them on their own.
  E                         F#min7
I drove all night. I drove alone.

E
Goodbye suburban mother bone.
 
For every kid in every home.
A                   C
Beauty becomes you, be who you are.
   E
If I should rob a corner store.
E
Or kill a cop who prayed for mercy.
A                             C
Forgive me, I don't know what made me this way,
         E                         F#min7
But I'll be alright and you'll be okay.
 
 
C#min             E                   A
It's lethal, it's painless, and it's slow.
C#min         E                             A
No matter how smart you are, how could you know?
C#min            E                      A           F#min7
It's better than living, it's better to drive away.
 
 
E
I don't need anger to make me tough.
 
Acid scars or marijuana.
A                C
A dream, a kiss, one final wish.
 
A girl who's bent to pay my rent;
E
All these things are disappearing.
A                      C
The world is swimming, the stars are bright.
  E                      F#min7
I wish I were with her tonight.
 
 
C#min             E                   A
It's lethal, it's painless, and it's slow.
C#min         E                             A
No matter how smart you are, how could you know?
C#min            E                      A
It's better than living, it's better to drive away.
