Stolen Car - Bruce Springsteen

This is not the version from the "River" album but the alternative version
from the "Tracks" album. It's got slightly different lyrics and different 
chords. Enjoy!

 I found me a little  girl and I settled down
     D                          G
In a  pretty little house, in a pretty little town
We got married and promised never to part
               D                           G
Then little by little we drifted from each other's hearts

Now I'm drivin' a stolen car on a pitch-black night
        D                        G
And I'm doin' my best to make it through 
              C                        G
Well I'm just sittin' down here at the Stanton light
            D                  G
I wanna get caught but I never do

At first I thought it was just restlessness
           D                            G
That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep
But in the end it was something more, I guess
             D                 G
That tore us apart and made us weep
                  C                                 G
And I'm drivin' a stolen car waitin' on that little red light
       D                                 G
I keep tellin' myself everything's gonna be alright
      C                   G
But I ride by night and I travel in fear
             D                          G
That in this darkness I might just disappear

    D                         C
She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote
                  Em        C  D    G
When our love was young and we were bold
              Bm                   Em
She said last night she read those letters
                  F                    C  G C D
And they made her feel a hundred years old 

          G                         C
There's a river runs by that little town
D             G
Down into the sea
It was there in the shade I lay my body down
       D                      G
As she flowed on so effortlessly
Now there's a party tonight out at county line
            D                     G
There'll be dancing down at Seven Trees
From these banks I can see those party lights shine
            D                              C  G
Maybe she's there, maybe she's looking for me 

Last night I dreamed I made the call
           D                      G
I swore to return and stay forevermore
Once again we stood on the wedding steps at Victory Hall
           D                             G
And walked arm in arm through the chapel door
I can remember how good I felt inside
         D                           G
When the preacher said "Son, you may kiss the bride"
But as I leaned over to touch her pretty lips
          D                        G
I felt it all slip away through my fingertips
                  C                          G
And I'm drivin' a stolen car through a pitch-black night
       D                                 G
I keep tellin' myself everything's gonna be alright
      C                   G
But I ride by night and I travel in fear
          D                    G
No matter what I do or where I drive
            D                   G  C D G
Nobody ever sees me when I ride by
