       D             G         D                       D
The screen door slams  Mary's dress waves       Like a vision she dances 
   A                       G                                          A
across the porch    As the radio plays    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
            D                 G                                  D
Hey that's me and I want you only    Don't turn me home again  I just can't face 
   A                                                                  
myself alone again                                                    
       D                        G                       D             
Don't run back inside    darling you know just what I'm here for      
                                             A                   G
So you're scared and you're thinking   That maybe we ain't that young anymore
                                           A
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
             D                        G              D                  A [Riff]
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright   Oh and that's alright with me

         D                            Bm                    D
You can hide neath your covers  And study your pain  Make crosses from your lovers
      G                D                    F#m
Throw roses in the rain   Waste your summer praying in rain
       G                           A7              D
For a saviour to rise from these streets   Well now I'm no hero
       Bm                     D                               G
That's understood  All the redemption I can offer, girl Is beneath this dirty hood
D                          F#m                 G                 A7
 With a chance to make it good somehow  Hey what else can we do now
        D                     G                     D
Except roll down the window   And let the wind blow back your hair
                                        A                    G
Well the night's busting open   These two lanes will take us anywhere
                                   A          D                            G
We got one last chance to make it real   To trade in these wings on some wheels
                 D                 A
Climb in back   Heaven's waiting on down the tracks   
D           Bm               D                    G
Oh oh come take my hand     Riding out tonight to case the promised land  
D  F#m               G              A7
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road oh Thunder Road  
 D                      Bm                        D
Lying out there like a killer in the sun      Hey I know it's late 
        G                 D         F#m         G          A7             D
we can make it if we run   Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold   Thunder Road
       G                        A                         D
Well I got this guitar    And I learned how to make it talk
       Bm                                              G   A
And my car's out back    If you're ready to take that long walk
           G                      A               F#m                          Bm
From your front porch to my front seat  The door's open but the ride it ain't free
       G              G/F#               Em7      G/D
And I know you're lonely   For words that I ain't spoken
       A
But tonight we'll be free    All the promises'll be broken
             D                        G              D
There were ghosts in the eyes    Of all the boys you sent away
                                           A                 G
They haunt this dusty beach road  In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
                                            A                 D
They scream your name at night in the street Your graduation gown lies in rags at 
       G                      Riff starts
their feet     And in the...

Get to the porch they're gone on the  wind        So Mary climb in             It’s a

 G                           A                      D
