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

     D       G      E                      G       A
Yeah runnin' down a dream that never would come to me
D            G     E            G       A
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
D       G      E
Runnin' down a dream

  E                                              D                  E
I felt so good like anything was possible. I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
    E                                                D                  E
The last three days the rain was unstoppable, it was always cold, no sunshine

     D       G      E                      G       A
Yeah runnin' down a dream that never would come to me
D            G     E            G       A
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
D       G      E
Runnin' down a dream

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

     D       G      E                      G       A
Yeah runnin' down a dream that never would come to me
D            G     E            G       A
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
D       G      E
Runnin' down a dream
     D       G      E                      G       A
Yeah runnin' down a dream that never would come to me
D            G     E            G       A
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
D       G      E
Runnin' down a dream
