-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Adam B.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

This is my favorite Springsteen song. The guitar is palm-muted and finger picked with 
hand near the bridge of the guitar and quietly with occasional notes ringing. This tab is

Play Intro Twice


Verse 1:

E
Hey little girl, is you daddy home
                               A
Did he go and leave you all alone
                 C#m     A  B    E
I’ve got a bad desire, Oh I’m on fire

Verse 2:

E
Tell me now baby is he good to you
                                        A
And can he do to you the things that I do
                  C#m  A   B   E
I can take you higher Oh, I’m on fire

Play Intro Twice

Verse 3: (play same picking pattern for this verse)

A (2 bars)
Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife baby edgy and dull
E    (2 bars)                                       C#m (four bars)
And put a six knife valley through the middle of my skull

Verse 4:

E
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
                                                                A
And a freight train running through the middle of my head, and you
              C#m    A    B    Esus2
You cool my desire, Oh, I’m on fire

A    B      E   (Last line of verse)
Oh, I’m on fire
A    B      E
Oh, I’m on fire

A    B     E

I'm starting to doubt myself ...
It might not be Esus2 during the verse but instead E5 (the f# might be an e). It's pretty much impossible to tell what Bruce plays because he plays it quietly and with lots of palm muting. When I play by myself though, E5 sounds better than Esus 2. So play whatever you want, cause that's one note I can't tell
