            B5 (x244xx@1)           D5Rewind (xx023x@1)the clock we were, ridin' a wave
       B5 (x244xx@1)              D5Of (xx023x@1)Oz rock we were, but barely of age
         B5 (x244xx@1)                   D5 (xx023x@1)                  A5To (x022xx@1)take charge, or pack our guitars for the long flight

            B5 (x244xx@1)                 D5No (xx023x@1)cash or plan we were, criss-crossing the states
         B5 (x244xx@1)           D5In (xx023x@1)some van we were, c-c-cooking our beans
        B5 (x244xx@1)                      D5On (xx023x@1)the block while the motor was hot

Pre-Chorus
A5Give (x022xx@1)us half an inch
         B5We (x244xx@1)will tack on a mile
D5Give (xx023x@1)us a half stage
       E5We'll (022xxx@1)start up a rampage

Chorus:
B5Throw (x244xx@1)on your back pack

           B5 (x244xx@1)               D5Reset (xx023x@1)the stage we were, out rattling the cage
           B5 (x244xx@1)              D5With (xx023x@1)each show we were, out hawkin' them shirts
          B5For (x244xx@1)more lights, 'till shine hit the brights
                 A5 (x022xx@1)                    G5And (355xxx@1)we saw your faces, and we got new bassists
              B5 (x244xx@1)           D5Good (xx023x@1)and the lame we were, spinning our drums
        B5 (x244xx@1)           D5Like (xx023x@1)a dial we were, blowing up domes
        B5 (x244xx@1)                   D5From (xx023x@1)a pile, it worked for a while
                 A5 (x022xx@1)          G5If (355xxx@1)yours didn't rise, we apologize

Pre-chorus 2:

[Chorus]

The bridge is the only part that I am not sure on as far as chords go. If anyone has any 
suggestions, please say so in the comments.

Bridge:
B5Starting (x244xx@1)up
       D5 (xx023x@1)                       B5We'll (x244xx@1)lighten up the load at the startin' gate
      D5 (xx023x@1)                     B5We'l (x244xx@1)lighten up the load to a fightin' weight
       D5We'll (xx023x@1)light up the road
                  A5C'mon, (x022xx@1)kiss your mamma goodbye
           G5We (355xxx@1)got to fly

[Chorus] (Quietly (Single Strums) + Lead part)

[Chorus]

End:
A5 (x022xx@1)                                  G5 (355xxx@1)          B5(hold)
