Death to My Hometown  Bruce Springsteen

From the Album: Wrecking Ball
Capo on 3rd fret
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C](C[Fmaj7]hant)[Gsus2] [C]
[C]Oh, no cannon[Fmaj7]ball did fly, no [Gsus2]rifles cut us [C]down
[C]No bombs fell [Fmaj7]from the sky, no [Gsus2]blood soaked the [C]ground
No [C]powder flash blin[Fmaj7]ded the eye, no [Gsus2]deathly thunder [C]sound
But [C]just as sure as the [Fmaj7]hand of God, they brought [Gsus2]death to my home[C]town
[C]They brought [C]death to [Gsus2]my home[C]town, boys
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C](C[Fmaj7]hant)[Gsus2] [C]
[C]No shells ripped the [Fmaj7]evening sky, no [Gsus2]cities burning [C]down
No armies [C]stormed the shores for [Fmaj7]which we'd die no [Gsus2]dictators were [C]crowned
[C]I awoke from a [Fmaj7]quiet night, I [Gsus2]never heard a [C]sound
Ma[C]rauders raided [Fmaj7]in the dark and brought [Gsus2]death to my home[C]town, boys
[C]Death to [Gsus2]my home[C]town
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C](C[Fmaj7]hant)[Gsus2] [C] [Gsus2] [C]
They des[F]troyed our families' factories [C]and they took our homes
They [F]left our bodies on the plains, the [C]vultures picked our [G]bones
So [C]listen up, my [Fmaj7]sonny boy, be [Gsus2]ready for when they [C]come
[C]For they'll be re[Fmaj7]turning sure [Gsus2]as the rising [C]sun
Now [C]get yourself a [Fmaj7]song to sing and [Gsus2]sing it 'til you're [C]done
Yeah, [F]sing it [C]hard and [F]sing it [C]well
Send the [F]robber [C]barons [F]straight to [C]hell
The [F]greedy [C]thieves who [F]came a[C]round
And [F]ate the [C]flesh of every[F]thing they [C]found
Whose [F]crimes have [C]gone un[F]punished [C]now
Who [F]walk the [C]streets as [F]free men [C]now
[C]Ah, they brought [C]death to [Gsus2]our home[C]town, boys
[C]Death to [Gsus2]our home[C]town, boys
[C]Death to [Gsus2]our home[C]town, boys
[C]Death to [Gsus2]our home[C]town, whoa!
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [C]  
[C] [Fmaj7] [Gsus2] [G] [F]
