Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Born To Run  Bruce Springsteen

[E]In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a ______
runaway A[A]merican d[B]ream
[E]At night we ride through ma[A]nsions of glory in
[A]suicide  [B]machines

[A]Sprung from cages on Hig[Amaj7]hway 9 chrome wheeled[F#m], fuel injected an[Amaj7]d, steppin'
out over __ (to 1)
[A]Oh  Baby this town rips the b[Amaj7]ones from your back,
it's a [F#m]death trap,  ______   it[Amaj7]'s a suicide rap.We
[E]    [B4]                                 
[E]                               [Cm#7]     [A] 
get out while we're young 'Cause tramps like us
[B]baby we were born[E] run.

[E]Hey Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend,

I wanna guard[A] your dreams and visions.         [B]

Just w[E]rap your legs 'round these velvet rims,
And strap[A] your hands across my engines.       [B]
And Toge[A]ther we could break this tra[Amaj7]p,
We'll r[F#m]un till we drop and, baby we'[Amaj7]ll never go back.       [E]          [B4]
Oh will you walk wit[A]h me out on the wire?            [Amaj7]
Girl, I'm jus[F#m]t a scared and a lonely rid[Amaj7]er,
But I go[C]tta know how it feels,
I want[C#m7] to know if love is wild, baby,
I wa[A]nt to know if love is[B4] real.

(sorry for the instrumental : I'll see to it one day)
