                Bruce Springsteen

Standard Tuning EADGBE

22(24)=bend note up to the 24th fret or to high E

This is the violin intro to Jungleland, I have put no hammerons or pull offs in so just 
very expressive when you play it.

Piano Chords :
    C		     G   F	     C		    G    F    	C
The rangers had a homecoming in Harlem late last night
And the Magic Rat drove his sleek machine over the Jersey state line
Barefoot girl sitting on the hood of a Dodge
Drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain
    D		      E          F      G
The Rat pulls into town rolls up his pants
D		        E       F       					    C
Together they take a stab at romance and disappear down Flamingo Lane
Well the Maximum Lawman run down Flamingo chasing the Rat and the barefootgirl
And the kids round here look just like shadows always quiet, holding hands
      D        E     F  G  D    E	  F   G   C
As we take our stand       down in Jun-gle-land

    C			     G    F              C			    G     F   C
The midnight gang's assembled   and picked a rendezvous for the night
They'll meet `neath that giant Exxon sign that brings this fair city light
Man there's an opera out on the Turnpike
There's a ballet being fought out in the alley
Until the local cops, Cherry Tops, rips this holy night

D		E               F         G
The street's alive as secret debts are paid
         D		E          F      G
     D		 E              F             G
Kids flash guitars just like switch-blades
D		        E      F       G
hustling for the record machine

    Bb                      D                             C  C
The hungry and the hunted explode into rock'n'roll bands
     Bb                                     (Bb)
That face off against each other out in the street down in

       D		   F		  C			 G
In the parking lot the visionaries dress in the latest rage
D                               F                           F   G G
Inside the backstreet girls are dancing to the records that the D.J. plays
D			  F
Lonely-hearted lovers struggle in dark corners
C                      G         C                          F   G       G
Desperate as the night moves on, just a look and a whisper, and they're gone

Sax solo

Beneath the city two hearts beat
Soul engines running through a night so tender in a bedroom locked
In whispers of soft refusal and then surrender in the tunnels uptown
The Rat's own dream guns him down as shots echo down them hallways in thenight
No one watches when the ambulance pulls away
Or as the girl shuts out the bedroom light

            D				            C
Outside the street's on fire in a real death waltz
        D                C               D
Between flesh and what's fantasy and the poets down here
            F                         G                         D
Don't write nothing at all, they just stand back and let it all be
And in the quick of the night they reach for their moment
			            D                          Bb
And try to make an honest stand   but they wind up wounded,   not even dead
Tonight in Jungleland


Sorry there's no solo, but that takes to long to tab.
