Atlantic City
[Verse]

           Em        G                C           G
Well, they blew up the chicken man in Philly last night
         Em         G                 C           G
Now, they blew up his house, too
           Em           G                  C      G
Down on the boardwalk they're gettin' ready for a fight
     Em        G                    C             G
Gonna see what them racket boys can do
             Em         G            C     G
Now, there's trouble bustin' in from outta state
       Em        G           C            G
And the D.A. can't get no relief
          Em     G          C             G
Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade
        Em            G                        C           D
And the gamblin' commission's hangin' on by the skin of his teeth


[Chorus]

         Em     G                C        G
Well now, ev'rything dies, baby, that's a fact
          Em           G           D         Em
But maybe ev'rything that dies someday comes back
                G            C       G
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
    Em       G           C       G
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City


[Verse]

       Em      G                   C          G
Well, I got a job and tried to put my money away
            Em           G     C          G
But I got debts that no honest man can pay
      Em           G          C         
So I drew what I had from the Central Trust
      Em               G            C          G
And I bought us two tickets on that Coast City bus


[Chorus]

         Em     G                C        G
Well now, ev'rything dies, baby, that's a fact
          Em           G           D         Em
But maybe ev'rything that dies someday comes back
                G            C       G
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
    Em       G           C       G
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City


[Bridge]

D      C                          Em
Now our luck may have died and our love may be cold
   C         D            Em
But with you forever I'll stay
      C                         Em
We're goin' out where the sand's turnin' to gold
C      G                          C            G
Put on your stockin's baby, `cause the night's gettin' cold
   C           G                C         G
And maybe ev'rything dies, baby, that's a fact
          C          G             D         C
But maybe ev'rything that dies someday comes back


[Verse]

           Em              G              C        G
Now, I been lookin' for a job, but it's hard to find
                Em               G              
Down here it's just winners and losers and don't
        C                   G                  
   get caught on the wrong side of that line
           Em              G         C      G 
Well, I'm tired of comin' out on the losin' end
                Em                G            
So, honey, last night I met this guy and I'm gonna
 C                   G
do a little favor for him 


[Chorus]

         Em     G                C        G
Well now, ev'rything dies, baby, that's a fact
          Em           G           D         Em
But maybe ev'rything that dies someday comes back
                G            C       G
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
    Em       G           C       G
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City

About the artist behind Atlantic City:

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]
