Youngstown
By: Bruce Springsteen 

 
Verse I
Dm 
Here in north east Ohio, back in eighteen-o-three 
      C
James and Danny Heaton found the ore
                       Dm
That was linin' yellow creek 
Dm
They built a blast furnace, here along the shore 
C
And they made the cannon balls,
                              Dm 
That helped the union win the war 

[Chorus]
              C
Here in Youngstown
               Dm
Here in Youngstown
         F                  C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down
                      Dm
Here darlin' in Youngstown

Verse II
Dm
Well my daddy worked the furnaces. 

Kept 'em hotter then hell 
       C
I come home from 'Nam worked my way to Scarfer. 
                               Dm
A job that'd suit the devil as well
Dm
Yeah, taconite, coke and limestone,

Fed my children and made my pay.
          C
Then smokestacks reachin' like the arms of God,
                        Dm
Into a beautiful sky of soot and clay  

[Chorus]
              C
Here in Youngstown
               Dm
Here in Youngstown
         F                  C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down
                      Dm
Here darlin' in Youngstown

Verse III
         F                 C
Well my daddy come on the Ohio works,
                       Dm
When he come home from world war two 
Dm                           C
Now the yards just scrap and rubble. He said, 
                                        Dm
"Them big boys did what Hitler couldn't do"
      F                    C
These mills they built the tanks and bombs,
                        Dm
That won this countries wars.
         C
We sent our sons to Korea and Vietnam,
                                  Dm
Now were wondering what they were dyin' for

[Chorus]
              C
Here in Youngstown
               Dm
Here in Youngstown
         F                  C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down
                      Dm
Here darlin' in Youngstown

Verse IV
Dm
From the Monongahela valley,

To the Mesabi iron range 
       C                         
To the coal mines of Appalachia,
                       Dm
The story's always the same 
Dm
Seven-hundred tons of metal a day,

Now Sir you tell me the world's changed 
       C                     
Once I made you rich enough,
                         Dm
Rich enough to forget my name 

[Chorus]
              C
Here in Youngstown
               Dm
Here in Youngstown
         F                  C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down
                      Dm
Here darlin' in Youngstown

Verse V
           F                         C
When I die I don't want no part of heaven. 
                            Dm
I would not do heavens work well
            C
I pray the devil comes and takes me to stand,
                         Dm
In the fiery furnaces of hell

[Outro] 
Played the same as the chorus:
C  Dm  F  C  Dm
