Thunder Road
Bruce Springsteen/Melissa Etheridg

    D                 G       D        D sus D
The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
                          A                      G
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
           D                 G
Hey that's me and I want you only
                            D                 A
Don't send me home again, I just can't face myself alone again

            D                        G                    D   D sus D
Well don't run back inside, darlin you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking
     A                   G
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
            D                        G
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
           D                   A
   Oh and that's alright with me

        D                          Bm
You can hide neath your covers and study your pain
     D                               G
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
D                 A add4
Waste your summer praying in vain
      G                          A
For a savior to rise from these streets
          D                    Bm
Well now I'm no hero, it's understood
        D                                  G
All the redemption I can offer girl is beneath this dirty hood
       D                 A add4
With a chance to make it good somehow
    G                   A
Hey what else can we do now?
       D                        G                 D             D sus D 
Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night's busting open
      F#m                    G
These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
                  D             G
To-trade-in these wings on some wheels
              D                     A
Climb in back, heaven's waiting down on the tracks

D          Bm
Oh oh come take my hand
      D                     G
We’re riding out tonight to case the promised land
D        F#m              G                A
Oh oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road,
D                      Bm
It’s, lying out there like a killer in the sun
    D                   G
I know it's late we can make it if we run
D        F#m                  G          A             D D sus D
Oh oh oh oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold, Thunder Road

           G                     A                      D  D sus D
Oh well I got this guitar and I learned, I learned how to make it talk
       Bm                                            G    A
And my car's out back, if you're ready to take, that long walk
          G                       A
From your front porch to my front seat
           F#m                        Bm
The door is open but the ride ain't free
    G                                 G6/E      
And I know you're lonely for words I ain't spoke
But tonight we'll be free, all promises'll be broken
           D                     G                D        G D
There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
       F#m                G
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
                D                          G
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
           F#m                                    G
And in the lonely cool before dawn you hear their engines roaring on 
             Em                        A             G
But when you get to the porch they're go___ne on the wind 
               Em          G   
So Mary climb in,   it's a town full of losers 
    A                             D G D
We’re pulling out of he__re    to win

D  A  D  G  
D  A   G  A  5x
