Born to run  Bruce Springsteen








  [G]In the day we  sweat it out  on the streets  of a [C]runaway


       American [D]dream


  At [G]night  we ride  through  mansions of  glory  in [C]suicide [D7]machines


  [C]Sprung from cages on [G/B]highway 9


  Chrome [Am]wheels, fuel injected and [C]steppin' out over the [G]line, [D]Oh,


  [C]Baby, this town rips the [G/B]bones from your back


  It's a [Am]death trap, it's a [C]suicide rap


  I wanna [G]get out while I'm still [Em]young


  'Cause [C]tramps like us, [D]baby we were born to [G]run




  [G]Well, Wendy, let  me in, I  wanna be your  friend, I wanna


      [C]guard your dreams and [D]visions


  Just [G]wrap your legs  'round these velvet  rims, strap your


      [C]hands across my [D]engines


  And to[C]gether we could [G/B]break this trap


  We'll [Am]run til we drop, and [C]baby we'll never go [G]back, [D]Oh,


  [C]Walk with me out [G/B]on the wire


  [Am]Girl, I'm just a scared and [C]lonely rider


  And I [G]gotta know how it [Em]feels


  I wanna [C]know if love is wild, I [D]wanna know if love is [G]real


  [D]Beyond the  Palace  hemi-powered  drones  [F]scream  down the


       boulevard


  The girls [C]comb their hair in the rear view mirrors and the


      [Am]boys try to look so [G]hard


  The a[D]musement park rises bold and stark, kids are [F]huddled on


      the beach in the mist


  Well, I wanna [C]die with you Wendy on the streets tonight in


      an [Am]everlasting [D]kiss




  Well, the [G]highway's  jammed with  broken heroes  on a [C]last


      chance power [D]drive


  Every[G]body's out on the run tonight, but there ain't [C]no place


       left to [D]hide


  To[C]gether we could [G]live with the sadness


  I'll [Am]love you with all the [D]maddness in my [C]soul


  Someday, baby, I [G]don't know when


  We're gonna [Am]get to that place that we [D]really wanna [C]go


  [C]And we'll walk in the [Am]sun


  Til then, [C]tramps like us, [D]baby we were born to [G]run

This tab is based off the acoustic recording on the "Chimes of Freedom" album.

jetwax (report)

That decending chromatic would start D string 12th fret, 11, 10, 9, 8 etc.

jetwax (report)

Hope you didn't mind me changing that.
Also the bridge is a bit more complicated: [F Bb C Eb] (2x's) Each chord rocks back and forth on sus4's.
Next is Ab Eb Ab with sus 4's, then single notes A Bb B C C# A, jump an octave up to D & decend chromatically hitting d# 4x's before resolving on D.

If you're comfortable doing it the way you've been doing it, ignore this, but I think you'll find it works much better.

jetwax (report)

Starting at "sprung from cages" should be: C G/B Am C G D
C G/B Am C G Em C D G
Same at verse 2

Velvet Rims are an actual item. I've seen them on a few cars - sexy wheels!

docatwaterloo (report)

It's "velvet rims." Check out the music section of brucespringsteen.net; it gives the lyrics for all his songs!

drehaster (report)

No, it is definetly velvet rims.

kipsta (report)

velvet rims, it is

CEDARWING (report)

Good work - but not convinced the words were "wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims"...doesn't it sound more like "wrap your legs 'round these throbin' ribs"??
Correct me if I'm wrong..
