Born To Run
Capo 2

D G A   D G A

        D                                                G               A
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream
    D                                                              G           A
At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines
   G                 F#m
Sprung from cages on highway 9
        Em                               F#m                    D            D7
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected, and steppin' out over the line... OOOH!
G                        F#m
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
        Em                F#m
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
         D                   Bm
We gotta get out while we're young
           G            A                     D   G   A    D    G   A
'Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run
Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
              G                                  A
I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
      G                            A
and strap your hands 'cross my engines
   G              F#m
Together we could break this trap
      Em                   F#m                 D            D7
We'll run till we drop and baby we'll never go back... OOOH!
          G                                 F#m
Will you walk with me out on the wire
       Em                                               F#m
'Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
       D                       Bm
But I gotta know how it feels
I want to know if love is wild
             A                          D   G   A     D   G  A
Babe I want to know if love is real
   C                                  F
Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
And the boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
In an everlasting kiss
       D                                       G                A
The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight
            G                               A
but there's no place left to hide
   G                           F#m
Together Wendy we can live with the sadness
     Em                    F#m            D      D7
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul... OOOH!
 G             F#m
Someday girl I don't know when
we're gonna get to that place
         F#m           D
Where we really want to go
and we'll walk in the sun
But till then tramps like us
A                     D     G   
baby we were born to run
A                     D     G   
baby we were born to run
A        D

About the artist behind Born To Run:

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]
