E                            A                           B7   
          E
Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
                                      A                    B7          
 E
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
                                  A                   B7               
       E
With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
                             A                         B7              
           E
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground

A                        B7                 
              E
Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands
                             A                               B7        
     E
And some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand
                                     A                               
                     E
And now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in 
sand
                                A                               B7     
                      E
And some bloodshot forget-menot whispers daddy's within earshot save the buckshot turn 
the band

A      B       E
And she was blinded by the light
               A              B       E
Ooh cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
   A     B       C#m  B7                             
                A            E  A E C#m
Blinded by the light she got down but she never got tight, but she'll make it alright

E                           A               B7                
         E
Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
                                   A                                B7 
                      E
He says: "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in its funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
                                A                                B7    
                       E
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner all alone watchin' the young 
dance
                                  A                               B7   
                           E
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone to remind him of the 
of romance

A      B       E
Yeah he was blinded by the light
               A              B       E
Ooh cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
   A     B       C#m  B7                             
                   A           E  A E C#m
Blinded by the light he got down but she never got tight, but he's gonna make it tonight

B                                          A                    
E
Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes
                  B                                                   
                     E
She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong if you play that song with the funky break
      B                                                     A          
             E
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe to go outside
        B                                               A              
        E
And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride

A                       B7            
    E
Oh, some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier
                                            A                                   
  B7                                         E
Yes and Scotland Yard was trying hard, they sent some dude with a calling card, he said, 
what you like, but don't do it here
                                             A                        
                         E
Well I jumped up, turned around, spit in the air, fell on the ground, asked wich was the 
back home
                                              A                              
                 E
He said take a right at the light, keep going straight until right, and then boy you're 
your own

A                    B7        
         E
And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune
                                  A                                B7  
                                         E
Yes, and the avatar said blow the bar but first remove the cookie jar, we're gonna teach 
boys to laugh too soon
                                    A                                         
                          E
And some kidnapped handicap was complaining that he caught the clap from some mousetrap 
bought last night
                                   A                               B7  
                     E
Well I unsnapped his skull cap and between his ears I saw a gap but he'd figured he'd be 
right

A       B      E
He was just blinded by the light
              A               B       E
Ooh cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
    A    B     C#m   B7                              
                      A
Blinded by the light Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun

Oh but mama that's where the fun is

I was blinded

E          A          B         B7

About the artist behind Blinded By The Light:

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]
