Brilliant Disguise
Bruce Springsteen
By Steini

There are different versions of this song, some played in this tuning and others with a capo on 2nd.
Although it is true that Bruce plays with a capo on 2nd in the original video, nowadays he usually plays
it without capo. Therefore I would say that both versions are valid.

[Intro]

A     Asus2     Asus4     A
A     Asus2     Asus4     A


[Verse 1]

           A     Asus2  Asus4 A          A     Asus2  Asus4  A
I hold you in my arms            as the band plays 
                A              Asus2  Asus4 A        E     E   Esus2  E
What are those words whispered baby     just as you turn away
   A           Asus2  Asus4 A              A        Asus2  Asus4 A
I saw you last night            out on the edge of town
         A         Asus2          Asus4           A
I wanna read your mind    to know just what I've got 
         E              E     Esus2   E
in this new thing I've found


[Chorus]

            F#m    A   D  A            F#m         A       D   A
So tell me what I see          when I look in your eyes
       F#m-A-E-       F#m     D           A E A Asus2 Asus4 A  Asus2 Asus4 A
Is that you baby  or just a brilliant disguise


[Verse 2]

                  A        Asus2 Asus4 A            A         Asus2 Asus4 A
I heard somebody call your name          from underneath our willow
                 A       Asus2 Asus4 A   E             E   Esus2  E
I saw something tucked in shame    underneath your pillow
            A           Asus2 Asus4 A         A         Asus2 Asus4 A
Well I've tried so hard baby           but I just can't see
        A         Asus2  Asus4 A            E          E  Esus  E
What a woman like you                   is doing with me


[Chorus]

            F#m   A   D  A            F#m         A       D   A
So tell me who I see          when I look in your eyes
       F#m-A-E-       F#m     D           A E A   Asus2     Asus4     A
Is that you baby  or just a brilliant disguise


[Bridge]

     E                                       A
Now look at me baby         struggling to do everything right
            D                               A
And then it all falls apart           when out go the lights
            E                                 D
I'm just a lonely pilgrim        I walk this world in wealth
                      A                                     E
I wanna know if it's you I don't trust  'cause I damn sure don't trust myself


[Verse 3]

E                 A      Asus2  Asus4 A                A     Asus2 Asus4 A
Now you play the loving woman           I'll play the faithful man
                A        Asus2 Asus4 A            E          E  Esus2 E
But just don't look too close           into the palm of my hand
         A        Asus2 Asus4 A                      A       Asus2 Asus4 A
We stood at the altar           the gypsy swore our future was right
              A       Asus2         Asus4  A        E     E  Esus E
But come the wee wee hours     Well maybe baby the gypsy lied


[Chorus]

            F#m      A D         A          F#m             A    D  A
So when you look at me      you better look hard and look twice
       F#m-A-E-      F#m     D           A E A  Asus2  Asus4  A
Is that me baby   or just a brilliant disguise


[Verse 4]

             A      Asus2 Asus4       A                   A Asus2 Asus4 A
Tonight our bed is cold          I'm lost in the darkness of our love
          A          Asus2 Asus4 A                  E       A Asus2 Asus4 A
God have mercy on the man          Who doubts what he's sure of
