-The Song-



    D                G
The screen door slams
       D
Mary's dress waves
                         A            
Like a vision she dances across the porch
       G
As the radio plays
                            A
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
           D                 G
Hey that's me and I want you only

Don't turn me home again
  D                      A
I just can't face myself alone again
      D              
Don't run back inside
        G                      D
darling you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking
     A                   G           
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
                               		  A
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
	    D                        G
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
       D                   A
Oh and that's alright with me



	D                      
You can hide 'neath your covers
    A		
And study your pain
     D                        
Make crosses from your lovers
G
Throw roses in the rain
D		  A
Waste your summer praying in vain
      G    		        A
For a savior to rise from these streets
	 D
Well now I'm no hero
       Bm
That's understood
	 D		      
All the redemption I can offer, girl
   G
Is beneath this dirty hood
D	 		 A
With a chance to make it good somehow
    G   		A
Hey what else can we do now
       D		
Except roll down the window
    G	              D 
And let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night's busting open
      A  	             G
These two lanes will take us anywhere
                                  A
We got one last chance to make it real
   D				G
To trade in these wings on some wheels
	 D
Climb in back
			     A
Heaven's waiting on down the tracks


D     	   Bm
Oh oh come take my hand
G		      D
Riding out tonight to case the promised land
   A		    G
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
A		
oh Thunder Road
D		       B m
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
    D 		        G			D
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
  A		     G          A        
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold
        D 
Thunder Road


       G		
Well I got this guitar
      A    		     D
And I learned how to make it talk
       Bm	
And my car's out back
			     G    A
If you're ready to take that long walk
	  G			  A
From your front porch to my front seat
           F Sharp Minor 	      Bm
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
    G
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
There were ghosts in the eyes
   G		    D
Of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
       A                  G
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
     A
They scream your name at night in the street
		D			   G
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
           Bm
And in the lonely cool before dawn
               G
You hear their engines roaring on
	     Em	                      A
But when you get to the porch they're gone
       G                   Em
On the wind, so Mary climb in
       G		  
It's a town full of losers
        A    		       D
And I'm pulling out of here to win.




-Outro-

D (1 and a half seconds) G (half a second / a strum) A (for 2 seconds)

 In quick session of one another play:


					D  G  A  Bm  G  A  

then play D   Bm   G    A



		Repeat this outro once more


 then finish with D   and at the last few strums hammer your finger onto the e string at the 3rd fret
