My Hometown chords
Bruce Springsteen

E A/A  E A/A  D A E, Esus E/E Esus E/E  A E D  A

      E     A     A       E   A   A      D    A     E
I was eight years old and running with a dime in my hand
Esus     E   E       Esus       E  E      A  E   D
Into the bus stop to picks up a paper for my old man
    E      A   A            E   A   A         D           A             E
I'd sit on his lap in that  big old Buick and steer as we drove through town
     Esus   E  E    Esus E    E   A          E          D
He'd tousle my hair and  he d say son take a good look around
        A                      D    A    E
This is your hometown, this is your home town
        Esus E   E     Esus E   E             A    E    D   A
This is your hometown, your hometown, this is your home town

E  A/A  E           A       A       D  A    E
In 65   tension was running high at my high school
Esus        E      E      Esus        E         E         
There was a lot of fights between the black and white
          A       E         D
There was nothing you could do
E   A         A     E    A        A            D         A     E
Two cars at a light on a Saturday night in the back seat was a gun
Esus  E    E       Esus E       E         
Words were passed  a    shotgun blast
         A     E   D        A
Troubled times had come  to my hometown
D  A   E     Esus E   E     Esus E   E     A  E   D   A
My hometown, my   hometown, my   hometown, my hometown

    F#m                                   A
Now Main Street's whitewashed windows and vacant stores
                 F#m                        A
Seems like there ain't nobody wants to come down here no more
        D                              A
They're closing down the textile mill across the railroad tracks
        D                                  A                 E
Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back to

E    A   A     E    A   A     D    A   E     Esus E   E     Esus E   E
Your hometown, your hometown, your hometown, your hometown, your hometown
A    E   D    A
your hometown

E          A      A       E    A  A   D             A       E
Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting out
Esus E  E   Esus  E E   A     E       D
Packing up  our   bags  maybe heading south
E   A      A    E  A     A      D   A   E
I'm thirty-five we got a boy of our own now
Esus         E       E  Esus   E   E              A          E          D
Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said son take a good look around
This is your hometown
