Ride the Open Road
Intro D

A D
I first met you back in 1976
A D
There you were standing in that spot
A D
You were all alone in a crowded parking lot
G A D
Were you going to let me take you home or not.

A D
I didn’t know what to say to you
A D
You were looking oh so very blue
A D
Standing by yourself not knowing what to do
G A D
But oh so bright, shiny and new.

Chorus
G D
Ride, ride, ride the open road
G D
Come on, let’s ride the open road
G D
You and I should ride the open road
A D
Come on, you know it’s time to go.

Intrumental A D A D A D G A D
A D
Mile after mile you drove with me
A D
And I know that the years took their toll on you
A B
But you always looked so pretty in blue
G A D
Even when you weren’t bright, shiny and new.

Bridge
Em C D
It was back in 1998
Em C D
You and I were out a little late
Em C D
We got hit head on that night
Em C G
But everything turned out all right.

A D
You and I are in this forever
A D
You take care of me and I of you
A D
A model two thousand two
G A D
You’re the perfect BMW.


Chorus
G D
Ride, ride, ride the open road
G D
Come on, let’s ride the open road
G D
You and I should ride the open road
A D
Come on, you know it’s time to go.
A D
Yeah, you know it’s time to go.

Quick end: D
