BORN TO RUN

Live 06 Aug 2015 version


[Segues from LAND OF HOPE AND DREAMS]

A one, two, three!
The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight, there's no place left to hide
Together, Wendy, we'll live with the sadness, I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
Whoah, someday girl, I don't know when
And we'll get to that place we really wanna go, we'll walk in the sun
Till then tramps like us, baby we were born to run
Tramps like us, baby we were born to run
Tramps like us, baby we were born to run
Whoah whoah-whoah whoah
Whoah whoah-whoah whoah
Oh-oh oh whoah whoah-whoah whoah
Oh oh oh oh whoah
Whoah whoah-whoah whoah
Whoah whoah-whoah whoah
Whoah whoah-hoah whoah
Oh oh oh oh whoa

[Spoken outro:] Thank John!
