Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Cadillac Ranch   Bruce Springsteen



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.

Well there she sits buddy just a-gleamin' in the sun

Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on Earth.

Well buddy when I die, throw my body in the back.

Ride me to the junkyard in my cadillac.

Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur.

All gonna meet me down at the cadillac ranch.

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.
