The Getaway
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh                   

Intro: F - C/F - F - Bb/F - F - C/F - F
Bb/F     Dm  C Dm            Bb
    The moon is on the bright side,
                  F/C                      Bb
But we've thought of everything,
               F/C
Send the word to the prisoners,
    Bb  C               F
Tonight, we getaway,

                A/C#                Dm
When you hear signs of confusion,
           A/C#                           Dm
Come drifting through the door,
                  Bb
Get your belongings together,
                   F              C
Don't leave nothing behind,

        F    C/F  F-Bb/F           F     
And hey boys tonight we get away,
C/F        Bb/F     C/F
   To the other side,
F                   Bb/F            F        C/F - F - Bb/F - C/F - Bb - C
Head for the wall and get away;

We're sick and tired of hearing,
That the world is gonna blow,
So there's something we'll do to the leaders,
Before we go;
    
Let's stick 'em in a room together - Yeah!! -
And make them fight it out,
Until they see nothing from nothing,
Will leave nothing at all,

And hey boys tonight we get away,
To the other side,
Head for the wall and get away;

A                  Dm   A                 Dm                  A                                   Dm
Open the door - open the door - let me out - open the door - I wanna go

D/A-A7 A7-9  Dm  A7-A7-9 - Dm  
  Das ist auch__ unsere Welt,
  This is our world too,
  Oui c'est notre monde aussi,
    
Hey boys tonight we get away,
To the other side,
Head for the wall and get away;
    
"We'll give you anything you say"

Hey boys tonight we get away,
To the other side,
Head for the wall and get away;
    
"We'll miss you more than we can say;"
