[VERSE 1]
E                 B               A      B

           E                      B                A     B
Leave this one horse townlike two rebels without a cause.

          Somewhere greener  -  somewhere warmer.
          E                       B
          Up in the mountains  -  down by the ocean.
          A                           B
          Where?  It don't matter, as long as we're goin'
          E                    B
          Somewhere together.  I've got a quarter.

          Heads, Carolina  -  Tails, California.
