Suite for a New Life/With the Radio On


Am   F
if it all fell apart and ended in a ditch
C     G
we’d have no one but ourselves to thank
we set out with nothing to our names
but our clothes and the gas in the tank

nothing we had was making sense anymore
so we set out to find something else
you seemed pretty sure
and I didn’t wanna scare you
so I kept my doubts to myself

Em     Am
as we slipped away
you held my hand so tight I couldn’t breathe
Em     Am     G
drove into a sunrise full of colors I knew didn’t exist

C     G     F     G
I thought we’d find a new place of our own
didn’t know you were such a rolling stone
shaking off the moss
heading out into the great unknown

we didn’t know the world was so wide
once you let go, knots are untied
its beauty’s just a mirror of the beauty
we all have inside

Flyin’ down the highway with the radio on
Singin’ just as loud as I can to my favorite song
Well it might be Nez or Bob or Van
But I always try to sing it just as loud as I can
Flyin’ down the highway with the radio on

You pull out the map every once in a while
And I glance at you and you glance
and we share a smile
And the sun glints through your golden hair
And I can’t believe my luck that we’re there
Flyin’ down the highway with the radio on

Big fast car and a snappy tune
And you right by my side
Cup o’ joe and a bite to eat: man, what a ride!

Finally stop for some greasy home cookin’ in a roadside cafe
Settle up and head for the door glad to be on our way
Drive into a sunset we wish we could frame
Settle in for a night that’s just more of the same
Flyin’ down the highway with the radio on [x3]
