Thunder Road  Bruce Springsteen

[Gm7]    [3]   [5]  [3]  [3]  [3]  [3]         [Bb/F]     [1]   [1]  [3]  [3] [3] [1] 
Intro: F Bb F C F Am Bb Csus-C
The scr[F]een door slams[Bb]  Mary's dr[F]ess waves       Like a v[F]ision she dances
acr[C]oss the porch    As the [Bb]radio plays    Roy Orbison singing for the l[C]onely
Hey that's m[F]e and I want you o[Bb]nly    Don't turn me home again  I j[F]ust can't face
mys[C]elf alone again
Don't r[F]un back inside    darling[Bb] you know just what I'm h[F]ere for
So you're scared and you're thinking   That m[C]aybe we ain't that y[Bb]oung anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the n[C]ight
You ain't a b[F]eauty, but hey you're alr[Bb]ight   Oh and th[F]at's alright with m[C]e
You can h[F]ide neath your covers  And st[Dm]udy your pain  Make cr[F]osses from your lovers
Throw [Bb]roses in the rain [F]  Waste your summer p[Am]raying in rain
For a s[Bb]aviour to rise from these str[C7]eets   Well now [F]I'm no hero
That's [Dm]understood  All the red[F]emption I can offer, girl Is ben[Bb]eath this dirty hood
[F] With a chance to make it g[Am]ood somehow  Hey wh[Bb]at else can we do n[C7]ow
Except r[F]oll down the window   [Bb]And let the wind blow b[F]ack your hair
Well the night's busting open   These tw[C]o lanes will take us [Bb]anywhere
We got one last chance to make it r[C]eal   To tr[F]ade in these wings on some wh[Bb]eels
Climb in back   H[F]eaven's waiting on[C] down the tracks
[F]Oh oh come t[Dm]ake my hand     R[F]iding out tonight to [Bb]case the promised land
[F]Oh [Am]oh Thunder Road, [Bb]oh Thunder Road [C7]oh Thunder Road
L[F]ying out there like a k[Dm]iller in the sun      Hey [F]I know it's late
we can m[Bb]ake it if we run   [F]Oh Thunder[Am] Road, sit [Bb]tight take h[C7]old   Thunder R[F]oad
Well I [Bb]got this guitar    And I l[C]earned how to make it talk[F]
And my [Dm]car's out back    If you're ready to take that l[Bb]ong w[C]alk
From your f[Bb]ront porch to my front s[C]eat  The door's [Am]open but the ride it ain't f[Dm]ree
And I k[Bb]now you're lonel[Bb/A]y   For words that [Gm7]I ain't s[Bb/F]poken
But ton[C]ight we'll be free    All the promises'll be broken
             [F]                       [Bb] [F] 
There were ghosts in the eyes Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road  In the sk[C]eleton frames of b[Bb]urned out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street[C] Your graduation g[F]own lies in rags at
thei[Bb]r feet        And in the l[Am]onely cool before dawn
You hear their [Bb]engines roaring on   But when you [Gm]get to the porch they're g[C]one
On the [Bb]wind, so Mary climb [Gm]in    It's a t[Bb]own full of losers
And I'm p[C]ulling out of here to w[F]in.[F]
[F]     [C]     [F]     [Bb]        [F]     [C]     [Bb]   [C]
