 [INTRO]

 [Intro]
                 D      A    E
 Hey, so it's a really long story
                  D      A     E 
 But I've been drivin' all afternoon
            D A E Bm C#m D E
 (I I I I I've)

 (Drivin', drivin', drivin', drivin')
 
 [VERSE ONE]
            A/C#        D     E 
 I've been drivin' all afternoon
               A/C#            D          E
 But I hate to say it, I won't be there soon
                A/C#             D           E
 And though I'm late, you know I just can't wait
           F#m      A/C#       D            E 
 To come home to my slice of heaven on toast

               A/C#             D       E 
 But my Grand Prix broke down without fail
               A/C#        D      E 
 Another flat tire and another nail
              A/C#                 D      E 
 I miss your smile but this could take a while
                             Bm                       Esus4 E
 'Cause this "Road Closed" sign says there's no way around

 [CHORUS]
  Bm            A          E                Bm 
 No, first I felt kinda sad but I said out loud
   Bm         A          Esus4 E
 "You know, this isn't so bad?"
   Bm        A           F#m              E 
 Your photograph on my dash knows it's true
           D        A/C#          D              E    A D E 
 It might take me forever, but I can't wait to see you

 

 [VERSE TWO]
              A/C#       D     E
 I've been trudgin' since Two AM
                        A/C#          D          E 
 On the side of this highway, 'cause back there when
                 A/C#           D 
 I patched that flat, I ran on fumes
        E       F#m            A/C#          D        E 
 And that was a bad move 'cause yeah, I ran out of gas

                 B/D#     E         F#
 The heavens opened, the rain came down
                        B/D#          E         F#
 Now I'm soaked to the bone, but I'm homeward bound
                  B/D#           E          F#
 So I just don't care how much I have to bear
                Abm      C#m                       F#sus4 F#
 'Cause you'll be there when I walk in through the door

 [CHORUS]
    C#m       B           F#                      C#m
 So down this road I will run and only stop to buy you
      B            F#sus4 F#
 A bouquet for no reason
   C#m           B           G#m        F#
 Hey, it's kinda crazy what daisies can do
     E             B                  E         F#
 It might take me forever, but I can't wait to see you
 
 [BRIDGE]

 Well hey, I'd say that the real question is

 Am I unavoidably detained

 Or extremely fashionably late?

 There ain't nothing ventured, nothing gained

 It just really hasn't been my day

 But, I'm on my way

 Am I unavoidably detained

 Or just unbelievably, insanely, fashionably late?

 There ain't nothing ventured, nothing gained

 It just really, truly, hasn't been my day

 But I'm on my way
 
 [VERSE THREE]

 If I blew in by daybreak, I'd be in luck

 I'd hand you a coffee right when you woke up

 But my ETA just jumped to MIA

 And I'm so lost, my mind is startin' to stray

 Let's say I fly to Kathmandu

 To show the whole world I got a lot to prove

 But all I find is all these highways wind

 And lead back to my slice of heaven on toast

 [CHORUS]

 Oh, would your heart kinda glow if I held your hand

 And I promised to stay home?

 Hey, when I blow in that's the first thing I'll do

 It might take me forever

 It might take me forever

 But I love you forever, and I can't wait to see you
 
 [POST CHORUS]

 Yeah
 

 Woo! Hey, I'd say that the real question is

 Am I unavoidably detained

 Or extremely fashionably late?

 There ain't nothing ventured, nothing gained

 It just really, truly, hasn't been my day

 But, I'm on my way

 Am I unavoidably detained

 Or just unbelievably, insanely, fashionably late?

 There ain't nothing ventured, nothing gained

 It just really, truly, hasn't been my day

 But, I'm on my way, yeah
 
 [OUTRO]

 I've been drivin' all afternoon

 But I hate to say it, I won't be there soon
