Free Love Freeway

David Brent playing guitar

David is a sensational guitar player. His greatest composition is probably Freelove Freeway and now you can play it too! It only has four chords. That's just one more than Status Quo. Easy peasey.

Verse 1:

Guitar tablature

C         F         Am         G
Pretty girl on the hood of a cadillac, yeah
C         F         Am         G
She's broken down on Freeway 9.
C         F         Am         G
I take a look, I get her engine started, and
C         F         Am         G
Leave her purring and I roll on by. Bye, bye


C         F         Am         G
Free love on the free love freeway, the
C         F         Am         G
Love is free and the freeway's long, I got some
C         F         Am         G
Hot love on the hot love highway, ain't
C         F         Am         G
Going home 'cause my baby's gone (she's gone)

Verse 2:

C         F         Am         G
A little while later, see a Senorita,
C         F         Am         G
She's caught a flat trying to make it home.
C         F         Am         G
She says, "Por favor, can you pump me up?"
C         F         Am         G
I say, "Muchos gracias, adios. Bye, bye."

Verse 3:

C         F         Am         G
A long time later I see a cowboy crying
C         F         Am         G
"Hey buddy, what can I do?"
C         F         Am         G
He says, "I lived a good life, had about a thousand women,"
C         F         Am         G
I said, "Why the tears?", he says, "'Cause none of them was you".
