4th Of July Asbury Park Sandy  Bruce Springsteen

[C]Sandy, [F]fireworks are hailing over Little [C]Eden tonight[Csus4]       [C]   [C/B]
[Am]Forcing the light into all those stony faces
Left [Gsus4]stranded on this warm [G]July
Down in [C]town the circuit's full of [F]switchblade lovers
So [C]fast so shiny so sharp
[C/B]As the [Am]wizards play down on Pinball Way
[Gsus4]On the boardwalk way past [G]dark
And the [F]boys from the casino dance [G]with their shirts open
Like[C] Latin lovers on the [Am]shore
Chasing all them[Gsus4] silly New York [G]virgins by the score[Gsus4]       [G]

[Csus4]San...[C]dy the au[Csus4]rora is [C]rising be[Gsus4]hind  [G]us [Gsus4]       [G]
This [Csus4]pier  [C]lights our [Csus4]carnival [C]life for[F]ever
Oh, [Csus4]Love me to[C]night for [Csus4]I     [C]may [Gsus4]never see you a[G]gain, hey Sandy girl
[F]   [G] My, my [C]baby[Csus4]       [C]
[F]   [G]   [C]   [F]   [C]                         

Now the greasers ah, they [F]tramp the streets or get busted
For [C]sleeping on the beach all night[C/B]
Them [Am]boys in their high heels
Ah Sandy their [Gsus4]skins are so white[G]
And [C]me I just got tired of hanging in them [F]dusty arcades
[C]Banging them pleasure machines
[C/B]Chasing them [Am]factory girls underneath the boardwalk
Where they all [Gsus4]promise to unsnap their [G]jeans
And you know that [F]tilt-a-whirl down on the [G]south beach drag
I got [C]on it last night and my [C/B]shirt got [Am]caught
And they [Gsus4]kept me spinning[G], didn't [Gsus4]think I'd ever get off[G]

Oh, [Csus4]San...[C]dy the au[Csus4]rora is [C]rising be[Gsus4]hind  [G]us [Gsus4]       [G]
This [Csus4]pier  [C]lights our [Csus4]carnival [C]life on the [F]water
Running, [Csus4]laughing 'neath the [C]boardwalk, oh, [Csus4]with the [C]boss' daughter[Gsus4]       [G]
I remember Sandy [F]girl,
[G]Na na na na na [C]Baby[Csus4]       [C]
[F]   [G]   [C]   [F]   [C]                         

Sandy that [F]waitress I was seeing lost her de[C]sire for me [Csus4]       [C]   [C/B]
I [Am]spoke with her last night
She said she wont set herself on [Gsus4]fire for me any[G]more
She work that [C]joint under the boardwalk
She was [F]always the girl you saw
Bopping down the [C]beach with the radio
The kids say [C/B]last night she was [Am]dressed like a star
In one of them cheap little seaside bars
I saw her parked with [Gsus4]lover boy out on the Koko[G]mo
D'ya hear the [F]cops finally busted Madame Ma[G]rie
For telling [C]fortunes [C/B]better than they [Am]do
[Gsus4]For me this boardwalk [G]life's through, baby
[Gsus4]You ought to quit this scene [G]too

[Csus4]San...[C]dy the au[Csus4]rora is [C]rising be[Gsus4]hind  [G]us [Gsus4]       [G]
This [Csus4]pier  [C]lights our [Csus4]carnival [C]life for[F]ever
Oh [Csus4]love me to[C]night and I [Csus4]promise I'll [C]love you for[Gsus4]ever   [G]   [Gsus4]
Oh I [G]mean it Sandy [F]girl
[G]My my my my my [C]baby[Csus4]       [C]
Yeah I promise Sandy [F]girl
[G]Sha la la la la [C]baby[F]   [C]
