Backstreets - Bruce Springsteen
| 3x | | 2x | | 4x |
Intro: | G | Em | D | C | C | D | G | D | C | D7 | G |Em

One sof[G]t infested summer me and T[Em]erry became friends
Trying in va[G]in to breathe the fire we wa[Em]s born in
Catching r[G]ides to the outskirts tying f[Em]aith between our teeth
Sleeping in that o[D]ld abandoned beach house getting [C]wasted in the h[D]eat
And [G]hiding on t[C]he backstreets, [G]hiding on t[C]he backstreets
With a [G]love so hard and f[Am7]illed with de[G]feat [Em]
C | 2x |
Running for our lives at night on them G Em

Slow [G]dancing in the dark on the [Em]beach at Stockton's Wing
W[G]here desperate lovers park we sat with the [Em]last of the Duke Street Kings
Hu[D]ddled in our cars w[C]aiting for the bells that ring
In the d[Am]eep heart of the night we could l[C]oose from everythin[D]g
to go r[G]unning on [C]the backstreets, [G]running on [C]the backstreets
Terry you [G]swore we'[C]d live for[Am]ever[G] [Em]
C | 2x |
Taking it on them backstreets G Em

[A]Endless juke joints and [F#m]Valentino drag
Where [A]dancers scraped the tears up off the [F#m]streets dressed down in rags
Run[A]ning into the darkness some hurt [F#m]bad some really dying
At [E]night sometimes it seemed you could hear the [D]whole damn city crying
Blame it on the lies that killed us blame it on the [E]truth that ran us down
You can [A]blame it all on me Terry it don't [D]matter to me now
When the breakdown hit at midnight there was [E]nothing left to say
A E F#m | B | D G D7 G |
But I hated him and I hated you when you went away
[D7] [G] [D7] [G] [Em] [G]
