Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

My Hometown   Bruce Springsteen


      [E/A]      [A]              [E/A]    [A]      [D] [A] [E] 
Into the bus stop to pick up a paper for my old man
         [Esus]     [E]           [Esus]     [E]      [A] [D] 
I'd sit on his lap in that big old Buick and steer as we drove through town
    [E/A]      [A]                 [E/A]    [A]     [D] [A] [E] 
He'd tousle my hair and say son take a good look around
     [Esus]     [E]              [Esus]     [E]       [A] [D] 
This is your hometown, this is your hometown
        [A]                [E/A]    [A]        [D] [A] [E] 
This is your hometown, this is your hometown
        [Esus]     [E]           [Esus]     [E]       [A] [D] [E/A] [A] 

In `65 tension was running high at my high school
There was a lot of fights between the black and white
There was nothing you could do
Two cars at a light on a Saturday night in the back seat there was a gun
Words were passed in a shotgun blast
Troubled times had come to my hometown
My hometown, my hometown, my hometown

Now Main Street's whitewashed windows and vacant stores
    [F#m]                                [E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] 
Seems like there ain't nobody wants to come down here no more
      [F#m]                              [E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] 
They're closing down the textile mill across the railroad tracks
        [D]                            [E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] 
Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back to
        [D]                            [A] [E] 
Your hometown, your hometown, your hometown, your hometown

Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting out
Packing up our bags maybe heading south
I'm thirty-five we got a boy of our own now
Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said son take a good look around
This is your hometown
