This is from the Album "18 Tracks". I found the chords somewhere on the internet but the lyrics didn't fit, so here are the chords with the lyrics from the album version, I hope it's more or less correct. F Bb F 1.Johnny works in a factory, Billy works downtown Dm Gm F/A Bb Terry works in a rock'n'roll band lookin' for that million-dollar sound F Bb F I got a job down in Darlington but some nights I don't go Dm Gm F/A Bb Some nights I go to the drive-in and some nights I stay home (Bb) F I followed that dream just like those guys do way up on the Bb F screen I drove my Challenger down route 9 Bb F through the dead ends and all the bad scenes C F And when the promise was broken I cashed in a few of my own dreams F 2.Well, I built that Challenger by myself Bb F but I needed money and so I sold it Dm I lived a secret I should-a kept to myself Gm F/A Bb But I got drunk one night and I told it Dm Am All my life I've fought that fight Gm F/A Bb a fight that you can never win F C F Every day it just gets harder to live the dream you're believing in Gm Am Bb C F Thunder Road____ oh baby you were so right Gm Am Bb C F Thunder Road____ there's something dying down on the highway tonight F 3.Well I won big once and I hit the coast Bb F Oh but I paid the big cost Dm Inside I felt like I was carryin' broken spirits Gm F/A Bb of all the other ones who lost Dm Am When the promise is broken you go on livin' Gm F/A Bb but it steals something from down in your soul F C Like when the truth is spoken and it don't make no difference F something in your heart runs cold Bb I followed that dream, through the southwestern tracks F Bb the dead ends and the two-bit bars C When the promise was broken I was far away from home F sleeping in the backseat of a borrowed car Gm Am Bb C F Thunder Road____ here's for the lost lovers and all the fixed games Gm Am Bb C F Thunder Road____ here's for the tires rushing by in the rain Gm Am Bb C F Thunder Road____ remember Billy what we'd always say Gm Am Bb C F Thunder Road____ we were gonna take it all and throw it all away
