The Promised Land  Bruce Springsteen

| G | C G | Em C | C G |
On a r[G]attlesnake speedway in the U[Em]tah desert I p[C]ick up my money
and head back into t[G]own Driving cross the Waynesboro [Em]county line
I got the [C]radio on and I'm just killing t[G]ime
W[Em]orking all day in my [G]daddy's garage [Em]Driving all night chasing[Am] some mirage
P[C]retty soon little girl I'm gon[D7]na take charge
Chorus:
The do[G]gs on Main Street howl `cause they [C]unders[G]tand If I could t[Em]ake one m[C]oment
into my h[G]ands Mister I ain't a boy no I[C]'m a m[G]an And [Em]I belie[C]ve in a promised l[G]and
[G]I've done my best to live[Em] the right way I get u[C]p every morning
and go to work each [G]day But your eyes go blind and your [Em]blood runs cold
Sometimes I f[C]eel so weak I just want to exp[G]lode [Em]Explode and tear this[G] town apart
Ta[Em]ke a knife and cut this pain f[Am]rom my heart Fi[C]nd somebody itching for some[D7]thing
to start

(Harp Solo) | G | C G | Em C | C G | G | C G | Em C | C G |
There's a [G]dark cloud rising from the de[Em]sert floor I packed my [C]bags
and I'm heading straight into the s[G]torm Gonna be a twister to blow ev[Em]erything down
C G Em G apart
That ain't got the faith to stand its ground Blow away the dreams that tear you
Em G Em Am nothing
Blow away the dreams that break your heart Blow away the lies that leave you
But l[C]ost and brokenh[D7]earted Chorus +
And [Em]I belie[C]ve in a promised l[G]and And [Em]I belie[C]ve in a promised l[G]and
