Ties That Bind  Bruce Springsteen

[C]                         [F]                      [C]                      [F]                    

              [C]                       [F]                                                   

[C]You been hurt and you're all cried out you say
[F]You walk down the street pushing people outta your [C]way
You packed your bags and all alone you wanna ride
[F]You don't want nothing, don't need no one by your side
You're walking tough, [C]baby but you're walking blind[G]
To the ties that [F]bind

C | G | F
The ties that bind
C G F | F G | C
Now you can't break the ties that bind

[C]Cheap romance, it's all just a crutch
[F]You don't want nothing that anybody can t[C]ouch

You're so afraid of being somebody's fool
[F]Not walking tough, baby not walking cool
You walk cool, but d[C]arling, can you walk the line[G]
And face the ties that [F]bind

C | G | F
The ties that bind
C G F | F G | C
Now you can't break the ties that bind

Oh [G]I, I'd rather feel the [Am]hurt in[F]side, yes I would d[G]arling
Than know the emptiness your [Am]heart must [F]hide
Yes I would d[C]arling, yes I would [G]darling,
Yes I would [F]bab[G]y

(Sax solo) | C | C | F | F | C | C | F | F |
| C | C | F | F | C | C | F | F |
| F | C | G | G D A A D |

[D]You sit and wonder just who's gonna stop the rain
[G]Who'll ease the sadness, who's gonna quiet the p[D]ain

It's a long dark highway and a thin white line
[G]Connecting baby your heart to mine
We're running now but d[D]arling we will stand in time[A]
To face the ties that b[G]ind

D | A | G
The ties that bind
Now you can't b[D]rea[A]k the ties that [G]bind
You can't fo[D]rsak[A]e the ties that b[G]ind
A D | D G | D
Whoa, whoa, oh
