Cadillac Ranch
Bruce Springsteen

I fixed the solo and now it's right. This is one of Bruce's more underrated songs but it
rocks and is one of my favorites by him. This is the key he usually uses when he plays
song live which if the key of F. In the river album, he plays in the key of G. You play
the same way but the scale is just a couple frets higher. The chord progression is still 
IV V. Any questions, just email me at mpsguitarguy83@comcast.net.

F
Well there she sits buddy just a-gleamin' in the sun
B Flat                       F
There to greet a workin' man when his day is done

I'm gonna pack my pa. I'm gonna pack my aunt.
    B Flat                     C        F
And we'll take em' down to the cadillac ranch.


Eldorado fins, white walls and skirts.
B Flat                          F
Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on Earth.

Well buddy when I die, throw my body in the back.
B Flat                  C          F
Ride me to the junkyard in my cadillac.


Cadillac. Cadillac.
B Flat         F
Long and dark. Shiny and black.

Open up. Your engines let em' roar.
B Flat                        C           F
Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur.


James Dean in that Mercury '49.
B Flat                             F
Junior Johnson runnin' through the woods of Caroline.

Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans Am
B Flat                        C        F
All gonna meet me down at the cadillac ranch.


Cadillac. Cadillac.
B Flat         F
Long and dark, shiny and black.

Open up. Your engines let em' roar.
B Flat                        C           F
Tearin' up the highway just a big old dinosaur.


(Pluck only the first 2 strings of each chord for this verse.)


Little girlie in the blue jeans so tight
B Flat                    F
Drivin' along through the Wisconsin night

You're my last love, you're my last chance
B Flat                            C        F
Don't let em' take me down to the cadillac ranch.


Cadillac. Cadillac.
B Flat         F
Long and dark, shiny and black.

Pulled up to my house today.
B Flat        C              F
Came and took my little girl away.


Cadillac. Cadillac.
B Flat         F
Long and dark, shiny and black.

Open up. Your engines let 'em roar.
B Flat                        C           F
Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur.


(After this he plays the solo again a bunch of times.)

For future reference, you might find it better to write "Bb", instead of "B Flat." It's what most tabbers use.
