Darkness On The Edge Of Town


by Bruce Springsteen
Well they're still racing out at the Trestles 
But that blood it never burned in her veins 
Now I hear she's got a house up in Fairview 
And a style she's trying to maintain 

G - - - / C - - - / x2 / x2 / x2 //

 C:	Well if she wants to see me 
You can tell her that I'm easily found 
Tell her there's a spot out `neath Abram's Bridge 
Tell her there's a darkness on the edge of town 
There's a darkness on the edge of town

         [1 & 2]	   [3] 
G - C - / G - Em - / x2 / x2 // x2 / x2 / x2 // 
D - - - / D - C- / D - - - / C - G - / C - - - //

Everybody's got a secret Sonny 
`	Something that they just can't face 
Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it 
They carry it with them every step that they take 

 C:	Till some day they just cut it loose 
Cut it loose or let it drag `em down
Where no one asks any questions, or looks too long in your face
In the darkness on the edge of town
In the darkness on the edge of town

 B:	( G - C - / Em - C - / x2 //)

Some folks are born into a good life
Other folks get it anyway anyhow
I lost my money and I lost my wife
Them things don't seem to matter much to me now

 C:	Tonight I'll be on that hill `cause I can't stop
I'll be on that hill with everything I got
Lives on the line where dreams are found and lost
I'll be there on time and I'll pay the cost
For wanting things that can only be found
In the darkness on the edge of town

In the darkness on the edge of town
