G C G C

[Verse]
G                             C               G
Johnny works in a factory and Billy works downtown
Em                                               Am          G/B    C
Terry works in a rock and roll band looking for that million-dollar sound
      G                                        C                  G
And I got a little job down in Darlington but some nights I don't go
Em                                   Am        G/B     C
Some nights I go to the drive-in or some nights I stay home
                                               G             C
I followed that dream just like those guys do way up on the screen
                                                        G                    C
And I drove a Challenger down Route 9 through the dead ends and all the bad scenes
              D                                               G           D
And when the promise was broken, I cashed in a few of my own dreams

[Verse]
         G                                                C              G
Well now I built that Challenger by myself, but I needed money and so I sold it
  Em                                                    Am             G/B    C
I lived a secret I should've kept to myself, but I got drunk one night and I told it
Em             Bm                     Am           G/B           C
All my life I fought this fight, the fight that no man can ever win
G                       D                                      G
Every day it just gets harder to live this dream I'm believing in
        Am G/B C              D       G
Thunder Road,    oh baby you were so right
        Am G/B C                                      D         G
Thunder Road,    there's something dying down on the highway tonight

[Instrumental]
G C G C

[Verse]
G                                            C                     G
I won big once and I hit the coast, oh but somehow I paid the big cost
         Em                                             Am            G/B       C
Inside I felt like I was carrying the broken spirits of all the other ones who lost
          Em                   Bm                    Am                   G/B           C
When the promise is broken you go on living, but it steals something from down in your soul
               G                            D                                                 G
Like when the truth is spoken and it don't make no difference, something in your heart turns cold
        Am G/B C                         D              G
Thunder Road,    for the lost lovers and all the fixed games
        Am G/B C                       D          G
Thunder Road,    for the tires rushing by in the rain
        Am G/B C                                 D      G
Thunder Road,    remember what me and Billy we'd always say
        Am G/B C                                         D
Thunder Road,    we were gonna take it all then threw it all away

[Outro]
G C G C
