 hill              and we were                        Now there's 
                         women and men                   so much that
 
 
 D                                                          Bm
 time   time and memory fade away   we got our own roads to ride 
 A                    D    
 and chances we gotta take
 
                  G                                D
 We stood side by side   each one fightin' for the other
                  Bm               A        D
 We said until we died we'd always be blood brothers
 
2.                        D
 Now the hardness of this world   slowly grinds your dreams away
                 Bm     A                       D
 Makin' a fool's joke    out of the promises we make
                                D
 And what once seemed black and white   turns to so many shades of gray
                              Bm    A
 We lose ourselves in work to do     work to do and bills to pay
 
                      G                            D
 And it's a ride ride ride    and there ain't much cover
                             Bm    A           D      
 With no-one runnin' by your side   my  blood  brother
 
 (harmonica break with verse chords)
                              G                                 D
 On through the houses of the dead   past those fallen on their tracks
               G                         A
 Always movin' ahead   and never lookin' back
 
3.
(A)                     D   (etc. like the other verses)
 Now I don't know how I feel    I don't know how I feel tonight
 If I've fallen 'neath the wheel, if I've lost or gained sight
 I don't even know why, I don't know why I made this call
 Or if any of this matters anymore after all
 
 But the stars are burnin' bright like some mystery uncovered
 I'll keep movin' through the dark with you in my heart
 My blood brother

It's not in drop D tuning, the main riff is played like this:

e|------5-------5----|
B|--------3-------3--|
G|-----------0-------|
D|---4---------------|
A|-5-----------------|
E|-------------------|

Basically a C shape moved to the 5th fret. This is also how Springsteen plays it
