     G                                      Em

It's one for the money and one for the show

              G                                        Cadd9

I got one kiss for you honey so come on let's go

          Cadd9                         Dsus2

I didn't see it coming but girl now I know

            Dsus2                                G

It takes one for the running but two for the road


G                                                   Em

   One thousand dreams whispered in the dark

      G                                           Cadd9

But a dream's just a dream in one empty heart

             Cadd9                         Dsus2

It takes more than one to rev it up and go

    Dsus2                                   G

So let's get it running, we're two for the road



C (2)

  Two one-way tickets and a diamond ring

C                                            G

   Hell it don't matter what the rain might bring

G                                           D

   When this world treats you hard and cold

    D                                        G

I'll stand beside you, we're two for the road


Instrumental Verse (1st 4 lines of the song)


     G                                Em

When you're alone my love will shine the light

              G                                     Cadd9

Through the dark and starless night

          Cadd9                         Dsus2

I'll hold you close and never let you go

            Dsus2                                G

Come on now girl 'cause we're two for the road

          Cadd9                         Dsus2

Well it's two to get ready, babe come on let's go

            Dsus2                                G

Yeah me and you girl we were two for the road


Instrumental Verse x2  (1st 4 lines of the song)


End on last G
