Don't Back Down
Bruce Springsteen
Recorded in early 1983 at Bruce's home studio in Los Angeles. The recordings made there
are him playing all the
instruments besides the drums, which is played by a drum machine. This song was
considered for the 'Born In
The U.S.A.' album, but it was ultimately rejected.

One, two, one, two, three

          A
When the night winds rustle the far away leaves
         E                                  A
Rolling down the Conna valley through the cottonwood trees
A
And a white river rises with last season's rains
   E                           A
I awake in the darkness and I call your name

[chorus]
            D
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down
                   D
Baby, don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
             E
Don't back down on our love
             A
Don't back down


I lie awake and I know that sleep won't come soon
      E                                                      A
So I watch the headlights crawl up and down the wall of the lonesome room

Think of that club by the river where we danced on and on
              E                                      A
We swore our love would last forever and you laughed on and on

[chorus]
            D
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down

[bridge]
                        D                                  A
Yeah, come on, I wanna weep but I'm broke inside and the tears won't run
            E                                      A
I want to sleep but there ain't no dream and the sleep won't come

[guitar solo]

A      /  D  /    A    /   D   /   A    /     E    /   A

A
Last night I stood on Black Mountain and looked out to the sea
            D                                 A
Where the waters of Mystery River go rushing endlessly
         D                                       A
And the love we swore would last as long as the waters roared on
    E                            A
I awoke in the darkness, it was gone, gone, gone

[outro]
            D
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down
                  D
Baby, don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down
                  D
Baby, don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
                 A
Baby don't back down
