Heres my own arrangement to the unreleased Springsteen classic. I arranged
it for guitar and changed the timing a little (of course its impossible to
transcribe Bruces timing on this number). Excuse me if the chords are a
little off from the original version, but it stands alone just fine with the
guitar.
