Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Thunder Road  Melissa Etheridge

The [F(D]screen door slams[Bb(G], Mary's dress [F(D]waves   [Fsus4(Dsus4]
Like a [F(D]vision she dances a[C(A]cross the porch as the [Bb(G]radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the [C(A]lonely, hey that's [F(D]me and I want you [Bb(G]only
Don't send me home again, I [F(D]just can't face myself a[C(A]lone again [Asus4)(A]
Don't [F(D]run back inside, darlin' , [Bb(G]you know just what I'm [F(D]here for[Fsus4]      [Dsus4]
So you're [F(D]scared and you're thinking that [C(A]maybe we ain't that [Bb(G]young any more
Show a little faith, there's magic in the [C(A]night,
You ain't a [F(D]beauty but hey you're al[Bb(G]right
Oh and [F(D]that's alright with [C(A]me     [Csus4(Asus4]             [C(A]
You can [F(D]hide neath your covers and [Dm(Bm]study your [Dmsus4(Bmsus4]pain
Make [F(D]crosses from your lovers throw [Bb(G]roses at the rain
[F(D]Waste your summer [C(A]praying in vain, for a [Bb(G]saviour to rise from these [C(A]streets
Well now [F(D]I'm no hero, that's [Dm(Bm]understood[Dmsus4(Bsus4]
All the re[F(D]demption I got to offer girl is [Bb(G]beneath this dirty hood
[F(D]With a chance to make it [C(A]real somehow, hey [Bb(G]what else can we do [C(A]now
Except [F(D]roll down the window [Bb(G]and let the wind blow [F(D]back your hair [Fsus4(Dsus4]
Well the [F(D]night's busting open these [C(A]two lanes will take us [Bb(G]anywhere
We got one last chance to make it [C(A]real, to [F(D]trade in these wings on some [Bb(G]wheels
Climb in back,[F(D]    heaven's waiting down [C(A]on the tracks
[F(D]Oh oh come [Dm(Bm]take my hand, [F(D]riding out tonight to [Bb(G]case the Promised Land
[F(D]Oh oh oh [C(A]oh Thunder Road, [Bb(G]oh Thunder road, [C(A]oh Thunder Road
[F(D]Lyin' out there like a [Dm(Bm]killer in the sun
Hey [F(D]I know it's late, we [Bb(G]can make it if we run
[F(D]Oh oh oh [C(A]oh Thunder Road, sit [Bb(G]tight, take [C(A]hold, Thunder [F(D]Road   [Fsus4(Dsus4]
Well I [Bb(G]got this guitar and I [C(A]learned how to make it [F(D]talk  [Fsus4(Dsus4]
And my [Dm(Bm]car's out back if you're ready to take that [Bb(G]long  [C(A]walk
From your [Bb(G]front porch to my front [C(A]seat,
The door's [F(D]open but the ride it ain't [Bb(G]free
[Bb(G]And I know you're lonely for words that I ain't spoken
But to[C(A]night we'll be free, all the promises will be broken
There were [F(D]ghosts in the eyes of [Bb(G]all the boys you [F(D]sent away  [Fsus4(Dsus4]
They haunt this [F(D]dusty beach road in the [C(A]skeleton frames of [Bb(G]burned-out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the [C(A]street,
Your graduation [F(D]gown lies in rags at their [Bb(G]feet
[Bb(G]And in the lonely cool before dawn you hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch, they're [C(A]gone on the [Bb(G]wind
So Mary climb in, [Gm]   [Em]
It's a [Bb(G]town full of losers and I'm [C(A]pulling out of here to [F(D]win   ([Fsus4]Dsus4) ([F]D)
