Racing In The Street  Bruce Springsteen

I got a [F]sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie heads[Bb] and a Hurst on the floor
She's w[Gm]aiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the S[Bb]even-Eleven store
Me and my p[F]artner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he rides[Bb] with me from town to town
We only [Gm]run for the money got no strings attached
We shut `em [Bb]up and then we shut `em down
[C7]Tonight, [F]tonight the strip's just right
I wanna b[Bb]low `em off in my first heat
[Gm]Summer's here and the time is right
For r[Bb]acin' in the street
We [F]take all the action we can meet
And we c[Bb]over all the northeast state
When the st[Gm]rip shuts down we run `em in the street
From the f[Bb]ire roads to the interstate
Now s[F]ome guys they just give up living
And start d[Bb]ying little by little piece by piece
Some guys come h[Gm]ome from work and wash up
Then go r[Bb]acin' in the street
[C7]Tonight,[F] tonight the strip's just right
I wanna b[Bb]low `em all out of their seats
[Gm]Calling out around the world
We're going r[Bb]acin' in the street
(Break) | F | Dm7 | C4 | Bb | F | Dm7 | C4 | Bb |

I met h[F]er on the strip three years ago
In a [Bb]Camaro with this dude from L.A.
I [Gm]blew that Camaro off my back
And d[Bb]rove that little girl away
But now t[F]here's wrinkles around my baby's eyes
And she cr[Bb]ies herself to sleep at night
When I come [Gm]home the house is dark
She sighs "[Bb]Baby did you make it all right"
She [F]sits on the porch of her daddy's house
But [Bb]all her pretty dreams are torn
She s[Gm]tares off alone into the night
With the e[Bb]yes of one who hates for just being born
For all the [F]shut-down strangers and hot rod angels
Rum[Bb]bling through this promised land
Toni[Gm]ght my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea
And w[Bb]ash these sins off our hands
[C7]Tonight, [F]tonight the highway's bright
Out o[Bb]f our way mister you best keep
`Cause s[Gm]ummer's here and the time is right
We're goin' r[Bb]acin' in the street
| F | Bb | Gm | Bb | (to fade out)
