Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Shut Out The Light  Bruce Springsteen

Well the [D]runway rushed up at him
And he f[G]elt the wheels touch down
He s[D]tood out on the blacktop
And took a [A]taxi into town
He g[D]ot out down on main street
and went [G]into a local bar
He b[D]ought a drink and he found a seat
In a c[A]orner in the dark.
She ca[D]lled up her momma
To get the [G]kids out of the house
She c[D]hecked herself out in the dining room mirror
and undid an extra [A]button on her blouse
He f[D]elt her lying next to him
When the c[G]lock read four a.m
he was [D]starin' at the [A]ceiling
couldn't move his [D]hands...

M[G]omma, momma, momma come q[D]uick
I [G]got the shakes and I'm gonna be s[D]ick
Put your [G]arms around me in the cold dark night
H[D]ey now momma won't you s[A]hut out the l[D]ight
won't you s[G]hut out the light
won't you s[D]hut out the light
won't you s[G]hut out the light
won't you s[A]hut out the [D]light

0n his [D]porch they stretched a banner
saying "[G]Johnny, Welcome Hom[D]e"
Poppa pulled his ford out of the garage
and they p[A]olished up the chrome
His [D]momma said "Johnny oh Johnny
I'm so glad to [G]have you back with me"
[D]Poppa said he's sure they'd give him his job back
[A]down at the factor[D]y

[G]Momma, momma, momma come [D]quick
I [G]got the shakes and I'm gonna be s[D]ick
Put your [G]arms around me in the cold dark night
H[D]ey now momma won't you s[A]hut out the l[D]ight
won't you s[G]hut out the light
won't you s[D]hut out the light
won't you s[G]hut out the light
won't you s[A]hut out the [D]light

Now d[D]eep in the dark forest,
a f[G]orest filled with pain,
bey[D]ond a strip of maryland pines
there's a [A]river without a name
In the c[D]old grey morning
Mel J[G]ohnson he here stands
He st[D]ares out at the lights of the city
and d[A]reams of where he's [D]been
[G]Momma, momma, momma come [D]quick
[G]I got the shakes and I'm gonna be [D]sick
Put your[G] arms around me in the cold dark night
[D]Hey now momma won't you [A]shut out the [D]light
won't you [G]shut out the light
won't you [D]shut out the light
won't you [G]shut out the light
won't you [A]shut out the [D]light
