Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

My Ride Is Here  Bruce Springsteen

[C]I was staying at the marion, with Jesus and John Wayne.
I was waiting for a chariot, they were w[G]aitin' for a train.
[C]The sky was full of carion,I'll take the mazuma,
said Jesus to Marry, thats the three ten[G] to you.
Chorus: My rides here x 4 C,F,C,G

[C]The houston sky was changeless, we galloped through blue bonnets.
I was wrestlin' with an angle, you were working [G]on a sonnet.
[C]He said I believe in Saraphim, who gathered up my pinto.
And carried us away Jenny, acros[G]s the San jasento.

Chorus x 4

[F]Well Shelly and Keits, t[C]hey were out in the street, [F]and even Lord Baron he
was l[C]eaving for Greece.
[F]While back at the Hilton, [C]last but not least, [G]Elton was holding his sides.
[F]He said you brovos you better, b[C]e ready to fight, or[F] we'll never get out, of
[C]east texas tonight.
[F]The trail is long, [C]and the river is wide.

Chorus x 4

[C]I was staying at the Weston, I was planning to withdraw.
When in walked Charlton Heston, whith the tablet[G]s of the law.
[C]He said its still the greatest story, I said man I'd like to stay.
But I'm bound for glory, and I'm[G] on my way.

Chorus x 8

Great tabs for a superb song. Zevon what a talent the antimatter of all the corporate crap of the world.
The lyrics need a little tweak:

I was staying at the Marriott
With Jesus and John Wayne
I was waiting for a chariot
They were waiting for a train
The sky was full of carrion
"I'll take the mazuma"
Said Jesus to Marion
"That's the 3:10 to Yuma
My ride's here..."

The Houston sky was changeless
We galloped through bluebonnets
I was wrestling with an angel
You were working on a sonnet
You said, "I believe the seraphim
Will gather up my pinto
And carry us away, Jim
Across the San Jacinto
My ride's here..."

Shelley and Keats were out in the street
And even Lord Byron was leaving for Greece
While back at the Hilton, last but not least
Milton was holding his sides
Saying, "You bravos had better be
ready to fight
Or we'll never get out of East Texas tonight
The trail is long and the river is wide
And my ride's here"

I was staying at the Westin
I was playing to a draw
When in walked Charlton Heston
With the Tablets of the Law
He said, "It's still the Greatest Story"
I said, "Man, I'd like to stay
But I'm bound for glory
I'm on my way
My ride's here..."
