 One foot on the gas and his head in the clouds

 **(A)





NB:   
   *Throughout the song, A can be played instead
    of A7. It has been written as A7 throughout 
    the song, because there is a seventh sound 
    created by the melody, even if the chords 
    actually played aren't necessarily sevenths.

 **The final chord, A (indicated in parentheses) 
   is just background playing after the song has
   ended, and isn't obvious.
