Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen


[Intro]

  F         Dm            F               Bb          F         Am          Bb          C

    F                Bb             F
The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
                         C                       Bb
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
                             C
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
           F                  Bb
Hey that's me and I want you only
                            F                      C
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again
       F                       Bb                          F
Don't run back inside, darling you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking
     C                    Bb
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
                                          C
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
            F                      Bb
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
        F       C7         C
Oh and that's alright with me e|----------|-----|

        F                            Dm
You can hide `neath your covers and study your pain
     F                               Bb
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
 F                 Am
Waste your summer praying in vain
       Bb                         C7
For a saviour to rise from these streets
             F                     Dm
Well now I'm no hero, that's understood
         F                                Bb
All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
        F                Am
With a chance to make it good somehow
     Bb                 C7
Hey what else can we do now?
        F                       Bb                F
Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night's busting open
     Am                     Bb
This two lanes will take us anywhere
                                  C
We got one last chance to make it real
    F                            Bb
To trade in these wings on some wheels
      F                                 C          C7
Climb in back: Heaven's waiting down on the tracks
  F         Dm
Oh-oh come take my hand
       F                     Bb
We’re riding out tonight to case the promised land
  F    Am               Bb               C
Oh-oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road,
F                      Dm
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
     F                       Bb
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
F    Am               Bb          C7           F
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold, Thunder Road


              Bb                C             Bb             F       Bb         F
Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk e|----------------|--------|

        Dm                                          Bb   C
And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
           Bb                      C
From your front porch to my front seat
            Am                         Dm
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
      Bb                                         Gm        Bb
And I know you're lonely and there's words that I ain't spoken
     C
But tonight we'll be free, all the promises'll be broken
            F                             Bb       F
There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
        C                   Bb
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
                                       C
They scream your name at night in the street
                 F                         Bb
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet and in the
