Tracy Chapman (born March 30, 1964) is an American singer-songwriter, best known for her singles "Fast Car", "Talkin' 'bout a Revolution", "Baby Can I Hold You", "Give Me One Reason", "The Promise" and "Telling Stories". She is a multi-platinum and four-time Grammy Award-winning artist.

At the age of eleven she began playing guitar and writing songs. She was quickly accepted into the program A Better Chance, which enabled her to attend Wooster School in Connecticut; she was eventually accepted to Tufts University.

In May 2004, Tufts honored her with an honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts, for her strongly-committed contributions as a socially conscious and artistically accomplished musician.



Tracy Chapman - Fast Car

You got a fast car I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal maybe together we can get somewhere
Anyplace is better starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something but me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car and I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far just 'cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs and finally see what it means to be living

You see my old man's got a problem he live with the bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working I say his body's too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him she wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him so I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast car but is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision we leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car and we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job and I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better you'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter buy a big house and live in the suburbs

You got a fast car and I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar see more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere so take your fast car and keep on driving

You got a fast car but is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision you leave tonight or live and die this way
