Racing in the Street
by Bruce Springsteen
Arrangement: The Breakmen

Capo on 2.  This is a really folky arrangement and very easy to play.  

CCCCFFFFGGGGFFCC

C
I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
       F
Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor
      G
She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot
            F            C   
Outside the Seven-Eleven store
C
Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
       F
And he rides with me from town to town
        G
We only run for the money, got no strings attached
            F              C
We shut 'em up and then we shut 'em down

C
We take all the action we can meet
       F
And we cover all the northeast states
         G
When the strip shuts down we run 'em in the street
         F                 C      
From the fire roads to the interstate

Chorus
C        
Tonight, tonight the strip's just right
        F
I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat
G
Summer's here and the time is right
    F             C
For racin' in the street

  C 
I met her on the strip three years ago
     F
In a Camaro with this dude from L.A.
      G
Well, I blew that Camaro off my back,
    F                        C 
and I drove that little girl away,
  
But now there's wrinkles around my baby's eyes
        F
And she cries herself to sleep at night
    G 
She sits on the porch of her Daddy's house
           F                     C
She sighs, "Baby did you make it all right,"

Chorus
C
Tonight, tonight the strip's just right
        F
I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat
G
Summer's here and the time is right
    F             C
For racin' in the street 

C
Some guys they just give up living
                F         
And start dying little by little, piece by piece,
     G
Some guys get off work, go home and wash up,
       F             C
And go racin' in the street.

C
For all the shut down strangers and hot rod angels,
F               
Rumbling through this promised land
           G
Tonight my baby and me, we're gonna ride to the sea
    F                       C
And wash these sins off our hands.

Chorus
C
Tonight, tonight the strip's just right
        F
I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat
G
Summer's here and the time is right
    F             C
For racin' in the street
