Hit the Ground Runnin’ by Reckless Kelly Ukulele Chords

You can bang this one out in E, A, B and D and it still has a cool rock vibe. But to play it like
the CD, you’ll need to finesse it a bit. The first 6 lines of the song (Pre Verse) are played with an E5
at the 7th fret then it transitions to traditional E chords. The Asus4 is played at the 5th fret. It takes
a non traditional fingering of the A chord to make this smooth. Switch the ring and pinky so the pinky
is on the A string, ring finger on the D string. Keep the bar,index and ring fingers planted and jump over
the D string with the pinky from A string to G string 7th fret. The pinky hammers on the G string
here…listen to the track and you’ll get the timing.

Once you’re into the Verse, it’s first position chords to get that cool open B and E string droan under the
E chord. And you can play the Asus4 at the second fret by hammering on the B string 3rd fret.

The D E setup in the phrases of the lead sections…/ /… is played as partial bar chords 7th and 9th frets.

My thoughts are out the door, my words about to pour
The boots are on the boards, I’m gonna hit the ground runnin'
My eyes are up ahead, I’m lonely in this bed
My home is in my head, I’m gonna hit the ground runnin'
My choices have been made, my dues have all been paid
I gotta burn before I fade. I’m gonna hit the ground runnin'
I be runnin’ when I hit ground
Verse
I don’t turn my porch light on when I leave home
Cause I’m gone a lot and I ain’t got nothing to steal
I don’t kiss my baby goodbye
See, I got no baby ’cause I’m gone a lot
And I don’t know how to deal
And I keep looking for something that’s real

Choeus
Goin’ out on the road
Gonna ramble all over America
I was born on the run
And I’m never gonna settle down
Baby, I’m on a roll
Rollin’ all over America
And when the sun comes up, honey
I’ll be running when I hit the ground

Verse
I don’t set my suitcase down when I get to town
Cause I’m gone a lot and I know I’ll be leaving real soon
And I don’t know just where I’m bound
But someday I’ll come back around
And you know I’ll be looking for you
Yeah, I’m sure to be looking for you

Chorus
Goin’ out on the road
Gonna ramble all over America
I was born on the run
And I’m never gonna settle down

But she keeps this boy alive
Yeah, she keeps this boy alive

I’m goin’ out on the road
Gonna ramble all over America
