Devil's Arcade  Bruce Springsteen

Devil's Arcade
by
Bruce Springsteen
I love this song. Off the album "Magic", this is my interpretation of the song. I'm
sure this is right.
Guitar 1
Capo 2nd fret
Reme[D]mber the morning we du[Am]g up your gun
The worm[C]s in the barrel, the ha[G]nging sun
Those fi[D]rst nervous evening[Am]s of perfume and gin
The lost [C]smell on your breath a[G]s I helped you get it in
The rush [Em]of your lips, the feel [C]of your name
The beat i[Em]n your heart, the [G]devil's arcade[D]
You said [D]"Heroes are needed, so[Am] heroes get made"
Somebod[C]y made a bet, som[G]ebody paid
The coo[D]l desert morning an[Am]d nothing to save
Just [C]metal and plastic w[G]here your body caved
The slow[Em] games of poker with L[C]ieutenant Ray
In the war[Em]d with the blue walls,[C] a sea with no name
Where you [Em]lie adrift with the hero[G]es of the devi[D]l's arcade
You sleep a[C]nd you dream, your buddies [Em]Charlie and James
And wake wi[Em]th a thick dese[G]rt dust on your sk[D]in

Voice [D]says "don't wo[Am]rry, I'm here
Just whi[C]sper the word to[G]morrow in my ear"
House on[D] a quiet street, a home[Am] for the brave
A glorio[C]us kingdom with the [G]sun on your face
Rising from[Em] a long night as da[C]rk as the grave
On a thin [Em]chain of next mome[C]nts and something like faith
On a mornin[Em]g to order a bre[C]akfast to make
A bed dr[Em]aped in sunshine, a[C] body that waits
For the [Em]touch of your fingers,[C] the end of the day
The beat o[Em]f your heart, the bea[C]t of your heart
The beat[Em] of your heart, the[C] beat of your heart
The beat[Em] of your heart, the be[C]at of her heart
The beat[Em] of your heart, the slo[C]w burning away
Of the bit[Em]ter fires of t[G]he devil's arca[D]de
