For You  Bruce Springsteen

INTRO: F Am Bb C Dm
[F]Princess cards she [Am]sends me [Bb]with [C]her re[Dm]gards
Oh, [Gm]barroom eyes shine [Dm]vacancy to [Bb]see her you gotta look [C]hard
[F]Wounded deep in [Am]battle I stand [Bb]stuffed like some [C]soldier un[Dm]daunted
To her [Gm]Cheshire smile I'll [Dm]stand on file she's [Bb]all I ever [C]wanted[Bb] [Am]
[Gm]But you [Bb]let your blue [C]walls get in the [F]way of these [Am]facts
Honey, [Bb]get your carpet[C]baggers [F]off my [Am]back
You [Bb]wouldn't even give me [C]time to [F]cover my [Am]tracks
You said [Csus4]here's your mirror and your [C]ball and jacks
But [Csus4]they're not what I came [C]for and I'm [Csus4]sure you see that [C]too
I came for [Dm]you, for [Am]you, [Gm]I came for [Bb]you, [C]but you [Dm]did not need my urgency
I came for you, for [Am]you, [Gm]I came for [Bb]you, [C]but your [Dm]life was one long emergency
and your [Fsus4]cloud line urges me[F] and my [Fsus4]electric surges free[F] [Dm] [C]
[F]Crawl into my [Am]ambulance your [Bb]pulse is [C]getting [Dm]weak
Oh, re[Gm]veal yourself all [Dm]now to me girl while [Bb]you've got the strength to [C]speak
Cause they're [F]waiting for you at [Am]Bellevue [Bb]with their [C]oxygen [Dm]masks
But [Gm]I could give it [Dm]all to you now if [Bb]only you could [C]ask[Bb] [Am]
[Gm]And don't [Bb]call for your [C]surgeon even [F]he says it's too [Am]late
It's not your [Bb]lungs this [C]time it's your [F]heart that holds your [Am]fate
Don't [Bb]give me my [C]money, honey, [F]I don't want it [Am]back
You and your [Csus4]pony face and your [C]Union Jack
Well [Csus4]take your local joker and [C]teach him how to act
I [Csus4]swear I was never that way even [C]when I really cracked
[Csus4]Didn't you think I [C]knew that you were [Dm]born with the [Am]power of a [Gm]loco[Bb]motive
[C]Able to [Dm]leap tall buildings in a single bound
And your Chelsea sui[Am]cide with no ap[Gm]parent [Bb]motive
[C]You could [Dm]laugh and cry in a single sound
SOLO: Fsus4 F Fsus4 F
And your [C]strength is devastating in the [Bb]face of all these [F]odds
Re[C]member how I kept you waiting when it was [Bb]my turn to be the [C]God
Ah, [F]you were not quite [Am]half so proud when I [Bb]found you [C]broken on the [Dm]beach
Oh, re[Gm]member how I poured [Dm]salt on your tongue and [Bb]hung just out of [C]reach
And the [F]band they played the [Am]homecoming theme as [Bb]I ca[C]ressed your [Dm]cheek
Yeah, that [Gm]ragged, jagged [Dm]melody she still [Bb]clings to me like a [C]leech[Bb] [Am]
[Gm]But that [Bb]medal you wore on your [C]chest always [F]got in the [Am]way
Like a [Bb]little girl with a [C]trophy so [F]soft to buy her [Am]way
We were [Csus4]both hitchhikers but you had your [C]ear tuned to the roar
Of some [Csus4]metal tempered engine on an [C]alien distant shore
So you [Csus4]left to find a better reason than the [C]one we were living for
And it's not that [Csus4]nursery mouth I [C]came back for
And it's not [Csus4]the way you're stretched [C]out on the floor
cause I've [Csus4]broken all your windows and I've [C]rammed through all your doors
And [Csus4]who am I to ask you to [C]lick my sores
And [Csus4]you should know that's [C]true
[C]I [Bb]came [C]for [Dm]you, for [Am]you, [Gm]I came for [Bb]you, [C]but you [Dm]did not need my urgency
I came for you, for [Am]you, [Gm]I came for [Bb]you, [C]but your [Dm]life was one long emergency
and your [Fsus4]cloud line urges me[F] and my [Fsus4]electric surges free[F]
