"SHUT OUT THE LIGHT"
by Bruce Springsteen
Milwaukee 08/07/05 pump organ version 
         D
Well the runway rushed up at him
        G
And he felt the wheels touch down
    D
He stood out on the blacktop
           A
And took a taxi into town
    D
He got out down on main street
         G
and went into a local bar
    D                      
He bought a drink and he found a seat
      A            
In a corner in the dark.
      D
She called up her momma
           G
To get the kids out of the house
     D
She checked herself out in the dining room mirror
                   A
and undid an extra button on her blouse
    D
He felt her lying next to him
          G
When the clock read four a.m
       D              A
he was starin' at the ceiling
                  D
couldn't move his hands...

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

       D
0n his porch they stretched a banner
        G                  D 
saying "Johnny, Welcome Home"

Poppa pulled his ford out of the garage
          A
and they polished up the chrome
    D 
His momma said "Johnny oh Johnny
               G
I'm so glad to have you back with me"
D                            
Poppa said he's sure they'd give him his job back
A                 D
down at the factory

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

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


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

          (G)
won't you shut out the light
          (D)
won't you shut out the light
          (G)
won't you shut out the light
          (A)          (D)
won't you shut out the light
