Growin' Up  Bruce Springsteen

GROWIN' UP (from the album "Greetings From Ashbury Park, N.J.")

Note: This is taken from the book Springsteen Complete

Well, I stood stonelike at midnight suspended in my masquerade
[C] [Csus] [C] [C(2)] [C] [Csus] [C] [C(2)] [C] 
And I combed my hair till it was just right and commanded the night brigade
[Csus] [C] [C(2)] [C] [Csus] [C] [C(2)] 
I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I walked on a crooked crutch
[C] [F] [C] [G] [C] [F] [C] 
I strolled all alone through a fallout zone and came out with my soul untouched
[C] [F] [C] [G] [C] [F] [C] [G] [C] 
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said "Sit down" I stood up
[F] [G] [Am] 
Ooh-ooh growin' up
[F] [G7] [F] [C]  
The flag of piracy flew from my mast my sails were set wing to wing
I had a jukebox graduate for first mate she couldn't sail but she sure could
I pushed B-52 and bombed `em with the blues with my gear set stubborn on
I broke all the rules strafed my old high school never once gave thought to
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said`Come down'I threw up
Ooh-ooh growin' up
I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere and you know it's really hard
to hold your breath
I swear I lost everything I ever loved or feared I was the cosmic kid
Well my feet they finally took root in the earth but I got me a nice little
place in the stars
I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said`Sit down'I stood up
Ooh-ooh growin' up
Ooh-ooh growin' up
[F] [G7] [F] [C] [G] [C] [F] [C] [G]
