I Wish I Were Blind  Bruce Springsteen

Date: Thu, 05 Mar 1998 02:00:02 -0600
From: Jason Groce
Subject: Bruce Springsteen: I Wish I Were Blind
SPRINGSTEEN, BRUCE: I Wish I Were Blind
(from the "Human Touch" album)
NOTES:
Here's a relatively recent Boss tune that's simply awesome (from an
underrated album, IMHO). There's also a kick-ass version of this on
XXPlugged. All chord fingerings are standard. Like a lot of Bruce songs,
this is a fun one to sing and the chords are simple enough that you can jam
on it for a long time.
SONG:
Intro: G
Verse 1:
I love to [G]see cottonwoods blossom in the [C]early spring
I love to [D]see the message of love that the [G]bluebird brings.
But when I [C]see you [D]walking with him [G]down along the [Em]strand
I wish I were [C]blind when I [D]see you with your [G]man.
I love to [G]see your hair shining in the long [C]summer's light.
I love to [D]watch as stars fill the sky on a sum[G]mer night.
Music [C]plays, you take his [D]hand,
I watch how you [G]touch him as you start to [Em]dance
And I wish I were [C]blind when I [D]see you with your [G]man.
[C]We struggle here but [D]all our love's in [G]vain
Well, these [C]eyes that once filled me with your [D]beauty
Now [G]fill me with [C]pain.[G]
[C]And the light that once [D]centered here
Is [G]banished from me.[Em]
Oh, and this [C]darkness is all baby that [D]my heart sees.
And though this [C]world is filled with the
[D]Grace and beauty [G]of God's hand,[Em]
I wish I were [C]blind when I [D]see you with your [G]man.
We struggle here but all our love's in vain
Well, these eyes that once filled me with your beauty
Now fill me with pain.
And the light that once centered here
Is banished from me.
Oh, and this darkness is all baby that my heart sees.
And though this world is filled with the
Grace and beauty of God's hand,
I wish I were blind when I see you with your man.
Oh, I wish I were blind when I see you with your man.
Oh, I wish I were blind when I see you with your man.
(etc.)
I think I may have one or two of the chords off,
possibly around the first Em. Any comments/corrections
would be appreciated.
