E Street Shuffle  Bruce Springsteen



Intro [cbords implied by borns]:
        Am           Em           Dm    G      C   [guitar and clavinet enter]
Verse 1:

        Sp[C]arks fly on E Street when the boy prophets walk it handsome and hot
All the little girls' souls grow weak when the manchild gives them a
double shot
        The s[F7]choolboy bops pull out all the stops on a Friday night
        The t[C]eenage tramps in skin-tight pants do the E Street dance and
everything's all right
        Them k[G7]ids down there are either dancin' or hooked up in a scuffle
        Dressed in s[Am]nakeskin suits backed with D[F7]etroit muscle
        They're [Ab9]doin' the [G9]E Street S[C]huffle

Verse 2:

Now those E Street brats in twilight dual flashlight phantoms in
full star stream
Down fire trails on silver nights with blonde girls playing sweet
sixteen
The newsboys say the heat's been bad since Power 13 gave a trooper
all he had in a summer scuffle
And Power's girl, Little Angel, been on the corner keepin' those
crazy boys out of trouble
Little Angel steps the shuffle like she ain't got no brains
She's deaf in combat down on Lover's Lane
She drives all them local boys insane
Yes, she does

Bridge:

        Little Angel says, "[Am]Oh [G]oh [Am]oh (oh [G]oh [Am]oh), [Dm]   every[Em]body form a l[Am]ine
        [Am]Oh [G]oh [Am]oh (oh [G]oh [Am]oh), [Dm]   every[Em]body form a [Am]line"
Verse 3:

Well the sparks fly on E Street when the boy prophets walk it handsome
and hot
All them little girls' souls grow weak when the manchild gives them a
double shot
Little Angel hangs out at Easy Joe's, it's a club where all the riot
squad goes when they're cashin' in for a cheap hustle
But them boys are still on the corner loose and doin' that lazy
E Street Shuffle
As them sweet summer nights turn into summer dreams Little Angel
picks up Power and he slips on his jeans
And they move on out down to the scene
All the kids are there
