[[Intro]

Am G  C   x2


[Verse 1]

Am                    G                       C
I was scared of dentists and the dark,
Am                    G                       C
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations,
Am                    G                       C
Oh all my friends are turning green,
Am                    G                       C
You're the magicians assistant in their dreams.


[Bridge]

Am     G    C
Ooh, ooh ooh
Am    G           C  
Ooh, and they come unstuck


[Chorus]

Am   G                        C
Lady, running down to the riptide,
C                      Am
taken away to the dark side,
G                    C
I wanna be your left hand man.
Am           G                             C
I love you when you're singing that song and,
C                        Am
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
G                            C
you're gonna sing the words wrong


[Verse 2]

Am                         G                       C
There's this movie that I think you'll like,
Am                         G                       C
this guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City,
Am                 G                       C
this cowboy's running from himself.
Am                             G                       C
And she's been living on the highest shelf


[Bridge]

Am     G    C
Ooh, ooh ooh
Am G           C  
Ooh, and they come unstuck


[Chorus]

Am     G                              C
Lady, running down to the riptide,
C                           Am
taken away to the dark side,
G                       C
I wanna be your left hand man.
Am             G                                  C
I love you when you're singing that song and,
C                           Am
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
G                                C
you're gonna sing the words wrong


[Verse 3]

Am                                   G
I just wanna, I just wanna know,
C                                                 F
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay,
Am                                   G
I just gotta, I just gotta know,
C                                                F  
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way

Am                  G                     C
I swear she's destined for the screen,
Am                      G                           C
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh


[Chorus]

Am     G                              C
Lady, running down to the riptide,
