Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Stolen Car  Bruce Springsteen

[G]  [C]  [D]  [G]  Well I found me a girl and I [C]settled down
In a [D]pretty little house in a [G]pretty little town
We got married and promised [C]never to part
Then little by [D]little we drifted from each [G]other's hearts
Now I'm drivin' a [C]stolen car on a pitch-[G]black night
And I'm [D]doin' my best to make it [G]through
Well I'm just [C]sittin' down here at the [G]Stanton light
I wanna get [D]caught but I never [G]do
At first I thought it was just [C]restlessness
That would [D]fade as time went by and our [G]love grew deep
But in the end it was something [C]more, I guess
That tore us [D]apart and made us [G]weep
And I'm [C]drivin' a stolen car waitin' on that [G]little red light
I keep [D]tellin' myself everything's gonna [G]be alright
But I [C]ride by night and I [G]travel in fear
That in this [D]darkness I might just disap[G]pear
She [D]asked if I remembered the [C]letters I wrote
When our love was [Em]young and [C]we [D]were [G]bold
She said last [Bm]night she read those [Em]letters
And they made her [F]feel a hundred years [C]old[G] [C] [D]
There's a [G]river runs by that little [C]town
[D]Down into the [G]sea
It was there in the shade I lay my [C]body down
As she [D]flowed on so effortless[G]ly
Now there's a party tonight out at [C]county line
There'll be [D]dancing down at Seven [G]Trees
>From these banks I can see those[C] party lights shine
Maybe she's [D]there, maybe she's looking for [C]me[G]
Last night I dreamed I [C]made the call
I swore to [D]return and stay forever[G]more
Once again we stood on the wedding steps at [C]Victory Hall
And walked [D]arm in arm through the chapel [G]door
I can remember how good I [C]felt inside
When the [D]preacher said "Son, you may [G]kiss the bride"
But as I leaned over to touch her [C]pretty lips
I felt it [D]all slip away through my [G]fingertips
And I'm drivin' a [C]stolen car through a pitch-[G]black night
I keep [D]tellin' myself everything's gonna [G]be alright
But I [C]ride by night and I [G]travel in fear
No matter [D]what I do or where I [G]drive
Nobody ever [D]sees me when I ride [G]by[C] [D] [G]
[G]   [C]   [D]   [Em]   [Bm]   [F]
