[INTRO] x2 E  Esus4  E   A   B

[Verse 1]
        E                                      A                B
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream 
    E                                         A         B
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
A                        A/G#                F#m
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,  chrome wheeled, fuel injected
      C#m/G#              E       D   
and steppin’ out over the line    Oh  
A                       A/G#
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
        F#m                C#m/G#               E                   C#m
It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap  we gotta get out while we’re young
        A              B                    E   INTRO 2x
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

[Verse 2]
Wendy [E] let me in I wanna be your friend I wanna [A] guard your dreams and [B] visions
Just [E] wrap your legs ‘round these velvet rims and [A] strap your hands across my [B] engines    
[A] Together we could [A/G#] break this trap we’ll [F#m] run till we drop
[C#m/G#] Baby we’ll never go [E] back    [D] Oh
Will you [A] walk with me out on the [A/G#] wire    `Cause [F#m] baby I’m just a scared and
[C#m/G#] lonely rider but I [E] gotta know how it [C#m] feels   
I want to [A] know if love is wild babe I [B] want to know if love is [E] real INTRO 2x

          Asus       A       Asus     A               Csus  C             Csus C

The amusement park rises bold and stark as kids are huddled on the beach in the mist
        Asus         A            Asus       A          Csus  C     Csus C
I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight in an everlasting kiss

[Verse 3]
The [E] highway’s jammed with broken heroes on a [A] last chance power [B] drive
Every[E]body’s out on the run tonight but there’s [A] no place left to [B] hide
[A] Together Wendy we can [A/G#] live with the sadness
I’ll [F#m] love you with all the [C#m/G#] madness in my [E] soul   [D] Oh
[A] Someday girl I [A/G#] don’t know when we’re gonna [F#m] get to that place
Where we [C#m/G#] really want to [E] go and we’ll walk in the [C#m] sun
But till then [A] tramps like us [B] baby we were born to [E] run
Ah honey [A] tramps like us [B] baby we were born to [E] run

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]
