                          G        D
Last night I dreamed that I was a child
                                   A
Out where the pines grow wild and tall
        D       G                         D
I was trying to make it home through the forest
               A     D
Before the darkness falls

                         G             D
I heard the wind rustling through the trees
                                   A
And ghostly voices rose from the fields
              D               G               D
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
               A               D
With the devil snappin' at my heels

                                G            D
I broke through the trees, and there in the night
                                           A
My father's house stood shining hard and bright
           D              G                                 D
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
                        A              D
But I ran till I fell, shaking in his arms 

            D                         A                       D

                                G                      D
I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
                                                   A
Will never again, sir, tear us from each other's hearts
         D                  G           D
I got dressed, and to that house I did ride
                                       A                  D
From out on the road, I could see its windows shining in light

                           G            D
I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
                                                                  A
A woman I didn't recognize came and spoke to me through a chained door
                  D       G            D
I told her my story, and who I'd come for
                                              A                D
She said "I'm sorry, son, but no one by that name lives here anymore"

                        G           D
My father's house shines hard and bright
                                            A
It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
             D       G            D
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
                                           A            D
Shining `cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned

About the artist behind My Fathers House Tab:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
