IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND  Bruce Springsteen

[D]We said we'd walk together, baby come what may
[D]That come the twilight, should we lose our [Bm]way
If as we're wal[G]king, a hand should slip f[D]ree
I'll wait for y[Bm]ou
should I f[G]all behind
Wait for m[D]e
[D]We swore we'd travel, darlin' side by side
We'd help each other, stay in [Bm]stride
But each lover's steps fa[G]ll so different[D]ly
But I'll wait for y[Bm]ou
And if I should f[G]all behind wait for [D]me
Now everyone dr[G]eams of a love lasting and t[D]rue
But you and [G]I know what this world can [Bm]do
So let's make our steps c[G]lear that the other may s[D]ee
And I'll wait for y[Bm]ou
If I should f[G]all behind
Wait for m[D]e
[D]Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oak's bough, soon we will be[Bm] wed
Should we lose each o[G]ther in the shadow of the evening tr[D]ees
I'll wait for y[Bm]ou
and should I f[G]all behind
Wait for [D]me
Darlin' I'll wait for [Bm]you
Should I f[G]all behind
Wait for m[D]e
Repeat "I'll wait for [Bm]you, etc..[G]......[D]." three times and fade

Yet another great song from the Boss. However, I discovered that he actually plays it in the key of E starting with Em7 played at the fourth fret and with an open low E string. The other two chords are C#m and A. Check out Youtube, you can see his hand position.
