                             Devil's Arcade
                                    by
                            Bruce Springsteen

I love this song. Off the album "Magic", this is my interpretation of the song. I'm 
sure this is right.

Guitar 1
Capo 2nd fret

    D                     Am
Remember the morning we dug up your gun
        C                      G
The worms in the barrel, the hanging sun
        D                  Am
Those first nervous evenings of perfume and gin
         C                     G
The lost smell on your breath as I helped you get it in
         Em                     C
The rush of your lips, the feel of your name
          Em                G              D
The beat in your heart, the devil's arcade


         D                     Am
You said "Heroes are needed, so heroes get made"
       C                G
Somebody made a bet, somebody paid
       D                  Am
The cool desert morning and nothing to save
     C                  G
Just metal and plastic where your body caved
        Em                    C
The slow games of poker with Lieutenant Ray
          Em                    C
In the ward with the blue walls, a sea with no name
          Em                      G             D
Where you lie adrift with the heroes of the devil's arcade


           C                          Em
You sleep and you dream, your buddies Charlie and James
           Em             G                 D
And wake with a thick desert dust on your skin

      D             Am
Voice says "don't worry, I'm here
        C               G
Just whisper the word tomorrow in my ear"
        D                      Am
House on a quiet street, a home for the brave
        C                   G
A glorious kingdom with the sun on your face
           Em                 C
Rising from a long night as dark as the grave
          Em                C
On a thin chain of next moments and something like faith
           Em              C
On a morning to order a breakfast to make
        Em                 C
A bed draped in sunshine, a body that waits
        Em                    C
For the touch of your fingers, the end of the day
          Em                   C
The beat of your heart, the beat of your heart
        Em                 C
The beat of your heart, the beat of your heart
        Em                    C
The beat of your heart, the beat of her heart
        Em                     C
The beat of your heart, the slow burning away
          Em            G              D
Of the bitter fires of the devil's arcade

just playing along to it i didn't think the G sounded right in the verses, i think it just stays a C for the whole line but that might be just me hearing things, great tab however
