Verse 1: 

E                     A         E                                     B                   A
Screen door slams Marys dress waves like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
                            B                  E                 A
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely hey thats me and I want you only
                           E                B
Dont turn me home again I just cant face myself alone again

E                         A                E                                       B             A
Dont run back inside darlin u know just what Im here for youre scared n thinkin that maybe we aint that young anymore
                                          B                E                      A
Show a little faith there's magic in the night You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
              E            B
Oh and that's alright with me


Verse 2: 

        E                           C#m                   E                         A                  
You can hide neath your covers n study your pain make crosses from your lovers throw roses in the rain
E                  G#m                   A                         B7
Waste your summer praying in vain for a savior to rise from these streets

        E                      C#m                   E                             A       
Well now Im no hero thats understood all the redemption I can offer girl is beneath this dirty hood
E                         G#m                 A               B7
With a chance to make it good somehow Hey what else can we do now?


Verse 3: 

       E                        A                 E
Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair 
                                     B                      A
Well the night's bustin' open, these two lanes will take us anywhere
                                     B     E                           A
We got one last chance to make it real To trade in these wings on some wheels
                  E                    B
Climb in back, heaven's waiting down on the tracks


Verse 4: [same chords as verse 2]

  E          C#m         E                    A 
Oh oh come take my hand riding out tonight to case the promised land
E        G#m              A               B7
Oh oh oh oh thunder road, oh thunder road, oh thunder road
E                     C#m                      E                       A 
Lying out there like a killer in the sun, hey I know it's late, we can make it if we run
E                  G#m        A           B7            E
Oh oh oh oh thunder road, sit tight, take hold, thunder road


Verse 5: 

       A                 B                      E      C#m                                      A      B
Well I got this guitar & I learned how to make it talk & my cars out back if youre ready to take that long walk
          A                      B                G#m                           C#m
From your front porch to my front seat, the door's open but the ride it ain't free
      A                     F#m                           B
And I know you're lonely for words that I ain't spoken, tonight we'll be free all the promises will be broken


Verse 6:

           E                        A              E
There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
                                         B                  A 
They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets 
                                           B                E                          A
They scream your name at night in the street Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
             G#m                                  A
And in the lonely cool before dawn You hear their engines roaring on
              F#m                     B           A                  F#m
But when you get to the porch they're gone on the wind, so Mary climb in
        A                        B                     E
It's a town full of losers, I'm pulling out of here to win
