Bruce Springsteen:  Shut out the light

========================================================================
I got this song from Paul Rappleye, I guess he figured it out himself, so
all credits go to Paul.

========================================================================

It's in E, just three basic chords with a couple of strange fingerings in
the verses...this is from memory so it might not be perfect...

"SHUT OUT THE LIGHT"

(E)
The runway rushed up at him

(A with open G string)
And he felt the wheels touch down

(E)
He stood out on the blacktop

           (B with open low E, B, and high E strings)
And took a taxi into town

(E)
He got out down on main street

         (A with open G string)
and went into a local bar

(E)                      (B with open low E, B, and high E strings)
He bought a drink and he found a seat

     (E)
In a corner in the dark.

She called up her momma
To get the kids out of the house
She checked herself out in the dining room mirror
and undid an extra button on her blouse
He felt her lying next to him
the clock said four a.m
he was starin' at the ceiling
couldn't move his hands...

(A)            (E)
Momma, momma, momma come quick
(A)            (E)
I got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
(A)
Put your arms around me in the cold dark night
(A)                     (B)          (E)
Hey now momma won't you shut out the light

(A)
won't you shut out the light
(E)
won't you shut out the light
(A)
won't you shut out the light
          (B)          (E)
won't you shut out the light

Well on his porch they stretched a banner
saying "Johnny, Welcome Home"
Poppa pulled his ford out of the garage
and they polished up the chrome
His momma said "Johnny oh johnny
I'm so glad you're here with me"
Poppa said he's sure they'd give him his job back
down at the factory

Momma, momma, momma come quick
I got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
Put your arms around me in the cold dark night
Hey now momma won't you shut out the light

won't you shut out the light
won't you shut out the light
won't you shut out the light
won't you shut out the light

Now deep in the dark forest,
a forest filled with pain,
beyond a strip of maryland pines
there's a river without a name
In the cold grey morning
Mel Johnson he here stands
He stares out at the lights of the city
and dreams of where he's been

Momma, momma, momma come quick
I got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
Put your arms around me in the cold dark night
Hey now momma won't you shut out the light

won't you shut out the light
won't you shut out the light
won't you shut out the light
won't you shut out the light

I tried a capo on 5th fret and replaced E with C, A with F and B with G. Sounds great!
