My Hometown  Bruce Springsteen

[E]     [A]   [E]   [D]                          
Verse 1:
I w[A]as eight [D]years [A]old and ru[E]nning with a dime in my hand
Into the[A] bus [E]stop [D]to picks up a paper for my old man
I'd sit on hi[D]s lap in that  big[A] old Buick and steer[E] as we drove through town
He'[A]d tousle my hai[E]r and  he’d say [D]son take a good look around
T[E]his is your hometown, this is your home town
Th[E]is is your hometown,[A]  your[E] hometown[D] , this is[A] your home town

Verse 2:
In 65   [D] tensi[A]on was [E]running high at my high school
[Esus]There was a lot [E]of fights[E] between t[Esus]he black and w[E]hite         [E]
There was nothing yo[A]u could d[E]o               [D]
[A]Two cars at a ligh[D]t on a Saturday[A] night [E]in the back seat was a gun
[Esus]Words wer[E]e pass[E]ed  a   [Esus] shotgu[E]n blast   [E]
Troubled times h[A]ad come….[E] to m[D]y hometown             [A]
My homet[A]own, my hometown, my hometown,  my hometown

Now Main [F#m]Street's whitewashed windows and vacant stores                 [A]
Seems like there ain't nobo[F#m]dy wants to come down here no more         [A]
They're closi[D]ng down the textile mill across the railroad t[A]racks
Foreman says these jobs [E]are going boys and they ain't coming back to

Your ho[D]metown[A], your [E]hometown[Esus], your[E] homet[E]own, you[Esus]r home[E]town, [E]your hometown
[A]your ho[E]metown [D]
Verse 3:

Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting out
Packing up our bags maybe heading south
I'm thirty-five we got a boy of our own now
Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said son take a good look around
This is your hometown
