Capo 3: Play in D; actually in F.

    Thunder Road          - Bruce Springsteen

    D                 G       D-A-D
    Screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
                           F#m                     G
    Like a vision dancing across the porch as the radio plays
                                 A         D                         G
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely, hey that's me and I want you only
                                   D                     A
    Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again

          D                       G                      D-A-D
    Don't run back inside, honey, you know just what I'm here for
    And you're scared and you're thinking that 
    F#m                 G
    Maybe we ain't that young any more
    Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
                D                         G
    You ain't a beauty but eh, you're all right
           D                   A
    Oh and that's alright with me

            D                           G
    You can hide 'neath your covers and study your pain,
         D                               G
    Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
    D                 F#m                   G                         A
    Waste your summer praying in vain for a savior to rise from these streets
    D                           G
    Well now I'm no hero that's understood
              D                            G
    All the redemption I can offer girl is beneath this dirty hood
    D                        F#m              G                   A
    With a chance to make it good somehow hey what else can we do now except
    D                        G                 D-A-D
    Roll down the window and let the wind blow back our hair
                                       F#m                   G
    Well the night's busted open these two lanes can take us anywhere
    We got one last chance to make it real
        D                           G
    to trade in these wings on some wheels
                            D                   A
    Climb in back, heaven's waiting on down the tracks

    D        A                   D                    G
    Ohh come take my hand  We're ridin out tonight to case the Promised Land
    D F#m            G                A
    Oh Thunder Road, Oh Thunder road, Oh Thunder Road
    D                      F#m
    Lyin' out there like a killer in the dark
    D                            G
    Hey I know it's late, we can make it if we run
    D F#m                G           A             D
    Oh Thunder Road, sit tight, take hold, Thunder Road

         G                         A                  D
    So I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
           Bm                                          G    A
    And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
              G                       A
    From your front porch to my front seat 
           F#m                     Bm
    Door's open but the ride ain't free
         G                  GM7         Em7                Em
    Well I know you've been waiting for words that I ain't spoken
    Well tonight we'll be free--all the promises will be broken

               G                             A             D
    There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
    They drive this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of 
    G                A
    burned-out Chevrolets
                     G                    A
    They scream your name at night in the street
                    F#m                        Bm
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
               G                                      Em
    And in the lonely cool before dawn you hear their engines roaring on
              G                 A                   G            Em
    Until you get to the porch, they're gone on the wind so Mary climb in
           G                             A                      D
    It's a town full of losers and we're pulling out of here to win
