Introduction: (Riff 4 times)


         E                  E
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
          D               E       (Riff)
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
E                     E                       D             
Trees flew by, me and Del was singin', little Runaway 
      E
I was flyin'

Chorus:
         A       G      E
Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream
     E           G       A
That never would come to me
A            G    E   
Workin' on a mystery, 
E         G       A 
Goin' wherever it leads
A       G      E     (Riff)
Runnin' down a dream



I felt so good, like anything was possible
I hit cruise control, and rubbed my eyes
The last three days, the rain was un-stoppable 
It was always cold, no sunshine

Chorus

Tag: Riff  Riff  C  Riff  D  Riff  Riff  C  Riff  D  Riff

I rolled on, as 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's mine

Chorus

Chorus

Tag and Lead Solo...
