Working On The Highway

Bruce Springsteen

 CGC
 Someday mister I'm gonna lead a better life than this

 FGC
 Working on the highway laying down the blacktop
 FGC
Working on the highway all day long I don't stop
 FGC
Working on the highway blasting through the bedrock  |          2x           |
F G C | F C | F C | F C | G C |
Working on the highway, working on the highway

C F C | F C | F
I met her at a dance down at the union hall
C G C | F C | F
She was standing with her brothers back up against the wall
C F C | F C | F
Sometimes we'd go walking down the union tracks
C G C | F C | F
One day I looked straight at her and she looked straight back

 FGC
 Working on the highway laying down the blacktop
 FGC
Working on the highway all day long I don't stop
 FGC
Working on the highway blasting through the bedrock  |          2x           |
F G C | F C | F C | F C | G C |
Working on the highway, working on the highway

 AmC
 Saved up my money and I put it all away
 AmC
went to see her daddy but we didn't have much to say
 AmC
"Son can't you see that she's just a little girl
 FG
She don't know nothing about this cruel cruel world"

C F C | F C | F
We lit out down to Florida we got along all right
C G C | F C | F
One day her brothers came and got her and they took me in a black and white
C F C | F C | F
The prosecutor kept the promise that he made on that day
C G C | F C | F
And the judge got mad and he put me straight away
C F C | F C | F
I wake up every morning to the work bell clang
C N.C.
Me and the warden go swinging on the Charlotte County road gang

 FGC
 Working on the highway laying down the blacktop
 FGC
Working on the highway all day long I don't stop
 FGC
Working on the highway blasting through the bedrock  |          2x           |
F G C | F C | F C | F C | G C |
Working on the highway, working on the highway

 FGC
 Working on the highway laying down the blacktop
 FGC
Working on the highway all day long I don't stop
 FGC
Working on the highway blasting through the bedrock
 FGC
Working on the highway, working on the highway
