Born To Run  Bruce Springsteen



In the d[G]ay we sweat it out on the streets of a run[C]away American [D]dream
At ni[G]ght we ride through mansions of glory in s[C]uicide mach[D]ines
Sp[C]rung from cages on H[G]ighway 9
chrome whe[C]eled, fuel injected and, s[D]teppin' out over the [C]line
Baby this town rips the bon[G]es from your back,
it's a de[Am]ath trap, it's a s[D]uicide rap.
We gotta get[C] out while I'm sti[Am]ll young[A2] [Am] [A2]
'Cause tr[C]amps like us b[D]aby we were born to [G]run.
[G]     [C]     [D]                 (G->C harmonica)
Hey [G]Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend,
I wanna [C]guard your dreams and [D]visions.
Just [G]wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims,
Strap [C]your hands across my en[D]gines.
And To[C]gether we could [G]break this trap,
We'll r[C]un till we drop and, [D]baby we'll never go [C]back.
Walk with me [G]out on the wire?
Girl, I'm[Am] just a scared and a [D]lonely rider,
But I [C]gotta know how it [Am]feels,[A2] [Am] [A2]
I [C]want to know if love is wild, baby,
I wa[D]nt to know if love is [G]real.
[G]   [C]   [D]                   (G->C harmonica)
Be[Dm]yond the palace hemi-powered drones sc[F]ream down the boulevard
The gi[C]rls comb their hair in rear-view mirrors
and the b[Am]oys try to look so[D] hard
Th[Dm]e amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are h[F]uddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna d[C]ie with you Wendy on the streets tonight
In a [Am]everlasting k[D]iss
Well, The hig[G]hways jammed with broken heroes
On a l[C]ast chance power driv[D]e
Every[G]body's out on the run tonight
But there's [C]no place left to [D]hide
Tog[C]ether, Wendy, we can l[G]ive with the sadness
[C]I'll love you with all the [D]madness in my s[C]oul
Someday g[G]irl, I don't know when, we're gonna [Am]get to that place
Where we r[D]eally wanna go
A[C]nd we'll walk in the [Am]sun[A2] [Am] [A2]
Till then tramp[C]s like us
[D]Baby we were Born To[G] Run.
