Racing In The Street  by Bruce Springsteen

[C] I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie [F] heads and a Hurst on the floor
[Dm] She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the [F] Seven-Eleven [C] store

Me and my [C] partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he [F] rides with me from town to town
We only [Dm] run for the money got no strings attached
We shut `em [F] up and then we shut `em [C] down

[C] Tonight tonight the strip's just right
I'm gonna [F] blow `em off in my first heat
[Dm] Summer's here and the time is right
For [F] racin' in the C street

[C We take all the action we can meet
And we [F] cover all the northeast states
When the [Dm] strip shuts down we run `em in the street
>From the [F] fire roads to the interstate

Now [C ]Some guys they just give up living
And start dying [F] little by little piece by piece
Some guys [Dm] come home from work and wash up
And  go [F] racin' in the street

[C] Tonight tonight the strip's just right
I'm gonna [F] blow `em all out of their seats
[Dm] Calling out around the world
We're going [F] racin' in the street

[C] He met her on the strip three years ago
In a [F] Camaro with this dude from L.A.
He [Dm] blew that Camaro off his back 
and he [F] drove that little girl away

But now there's [C] wrinkles around his baby's eyes
And she [F] cries herself to sleep at night
When [Dm] he comes home the house is dark
She says [F] Baby  make it all right

She [C] sits on the porch of her daddy's house
But [F] all her pretty dreams are torn
She [Dm] stares out alone into the night
With the eyes of [F] one who hates for just being born

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

[C] Tonight tonight the highway's bright
Out of our [F] way mister you best keep
Cause [Dm] summer's here and the time is right
For [F] racin' in the street [C]

I mean, you're in the key, but the chords are wrong and wrongly placed. Could use some attention for sure.
