Born to Run


by Bruce Springsteen
  i:	( E - - - / - - Es4 E / A - - - / B7s4 - B7 - /  x4  //)

In the day we sweat it out on the street of a runaway American dream
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
Sprung from cages on highway nine, chrome wheeled, fuel injected,
  and stepping out over the line
Oh, baby this town rips the bones from your back, it's a death trap,
  it's a suicide rap
We gotta get out while we're young, 'cause tramps like us, baby we born to run

E - - - /    / A - - - / B - - - /  x4  / A - - - / E/G# - - - / F#m - - - / E/G# - - - / E - - - / E9 - - - /

Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend I wanna guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims and strap your hands cross my engines
Together we could break this trap, 
  we'll run till we drop and baby we'll never go back
Oh, will you walk with me out on the wire?
  'Cause baby, I'm just a scared and lonely rider
But I gotta know how it feels, I want to know if love is wild, 
  babe I want to know if love is real
Oh come and show me...

 B:	Beyond the palace hemipowered drones scream down the boulevard
Girls comb their hair in rear view mirrors and boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark as kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight with an everlasting kiss

( A - - - / B7s4 - B - /E - - - /   / A - - - / B7s4 - B - / E - - - / Bm7 - - - //)

(C B Bb A / Ab G Gb F / F - - - / E - - - /     //)

Highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight but there's no place to hide
Together Wendy, we could live with the sadness, 
  I'll love your with all the madness in my soul
Oh, someday girl, I don't know when we're gonna get to that place where 
  we really wanna go and we'll walk in the sun
But till then tramps like us, baby we were born to run
