Adam Raised a Cain  Bruce Springsteen

This song is pretty simple. Note that i have included the bass part.
please dont copy this without my permission.
In the s[Em]ummer that[Am] i was [Em]baptized,[Am]
my father h[Em]eld me [Am]to his sid[Am]e.[Em]
as they [Em]put me [Am]to the wat[Em]er,[Am]
he said how o[Em]n that d[Am]ay i cried[Am] [Em]
We were [Am]prisoners of love,
a [C]love in chains,
He was [Am]standing in the door,
I was [C]standing in the rain,
with the [Am]same hot blood burning i[B7]n our veins,
Adam r[Em]aised a Cain
Adam raised a Cain
[D]Ad[Em]am raised a Cain
[D]Ad[Em]am raised a Cain
All of the old faces,
ask you why you're back.
they fit you with position,
and the keys to your daddy's cadillac
in the darkness of your room
your mother calls you by your true name,
you remember the faces,
the places the names,
you know its never over,
its relentless as the rain,
Intense solo (coming Soon)
in the bible Cain slew Able,
And east of Eden Momma he was cast,
you're born into this life paying,
for the sins of someone elses past
daddy worked his whole life,
for nothing but the pain,
now he walkes these empty rooms,
looking for something to blame,
you inherit the sins,
you inherit the pain
Then repeat and fade.
Okay thats most of it, but ther are some cool licks in the background in places, so here
are, all tabbed out
at the bridge:
 G---------4-----------| Do this four times,
 B-------5-------------| listen to the song for
 E---------------------| timing.

And also at the chorus:
 A--7------------7-------------| Also do this four times,
 D------------5----------------| Listen to the album for
 G--------5^-4-----------------| timing. Note that it is hard
 B-----5-----------------------| to hear the first two notes.
 E-----------------------------| ^ means bend up.

I also promised the bass part, so here it is:
For the Verse:
 D----------| x3

The turnaround is the same, but backwards:

For The Bridge play the Chord notes as quarter notes
For The Chorus, Play the same as the verse
Well, that was hard :). The boss rocks, keep playing and have fun.
