Verse chords repeat:
Back at the bar
The band tears down
But out here in the headlight beams
The silver powerlines
Gleam
On this 4th of July
Night Ride Home

Verse chords repeat:
Round the curve
And a big dark horse
Red taillights on his hide
Is keeping right alongside
Rev for stride
This 4th of July
Night Ride Home

Bridge chords repeat:
I love the man beside me
We love the open road
No phones till Friday
Far from the undertow
Far from the overload

Verse chords repeat:
Once in awhile
In a big blue moon
There comes a night like this
Like some surrealist
Invented this 4th of July
Night Ride Home
