Lana Del Rey - Ride - Lyrics

lyrics "Ride"

Ride
Lana Del Rey
As a bit of info, this song is in  Lydian mode, so it is like a normal major scale that 
starts on , but the fourth scale degree, in this case , is raised.
This makes the songs II chord major instead of minor, and the vii chord minor 
instead of diminshed.

I apologize for any lyric errors.

Ive shown the inversions i play the song in through slash chords, but feel free to play 
the chords in root position if you feel more comfortable. I hope this helps you guys out.

Lana Del Rey - "Ride"

!!!The way the site displays chords might not indicate this, but if you are using 
inversions in the intro and chorus, be sure the  chord is in second inversion also!!!

 -  -  - 
        -  -  -  -  (2x)

                         (passing notes if wanted are e, and then d+g)
  I've been out on that open road
You can be my full time, daddy
White and gold
Singing blues has been getting old
You can be my full time, baby
Hot or cold

Don't break me down
I've been traveling too long
I've been trying too hard
With one pretty song

  I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
  I am alone in the night
  Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I
  I've got a war in my mind
(Same chord sequence but repeated over the words ride in the next line)
So, I just ride, just ride (2x)

Dying young and I'm playing hard
That's the way my father made his life an art
Drink all day and we talk 'til dark
That's the way the road doves do it, ride 'til dark.

Don't leave me now
Don't say good bye
Don't turn around
Leave me high and dry

  I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
  I am alone in the night
  Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I
  I've got a war in my mind
(Same chord sequence but repeated over the words ride in the next line)
I just ride, just ride (2x)

  I'm tired of feeling like I'm f*cking crazy
  I'm tired of driving 'til I see stars in my eyes
  I look up to keep myself sane, baby
  So I just ride, I just ride

  I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
  I am alone in the night
  Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I
  I've got a war in my mind
(Same chord sequence but repeated over the words ride in the next line)
I just ride, just ride (2x)
