Brothers Under The Bridge
This is in my mind a great song. It's pretty much D all the way, exept for a few parts.

Intro: D

D
Saigon, it was all gone
     G
The same Coke machines
          D
As the streets I grew on
Down in a mesquite canyon
We come walking along the ridge
             G      Bm  A         D
Me and the brothers under the bridge
   D
Campsite's an hour's walk from the nearest road to town
                           G
Up here there's too much brush and canyon
                     D
For the CHP choppers to touch down
Ain't lookin' for nothin', just wanna live
              G     Bm  A        D
Me and the brothers under the bridge
  D
Come the Santa Ana's, man, that dry brush'll light
        G
Billy Devon got burned up in his own campfire one winter night
     D
We buried his body in the white stone high up along the ridge
              G     Bm  A        D
Me and the brothers under the bridge
      Bm                     G
Had enough of town and the street life
        D                             A
Over nothing you end up on the wrong end of someone's knife
             D
Now I don't want no trouble
And I ain't got none to give
              G     Bm  A        D
Me and the brothers under the bridge
    D
I come home in '72
                   G
You were just a beautiul light
                      D
In your mama's dark eyes of blue
I stood down on the tarmac, I was just a kid
              G     Bm  A       D
Me and the brothers under the bridge
        D
Come Veterans' Day I sat in the stands in my dress blues
               G
I held your mother's hand
                                 D
When they passed with the red, white and blue
One minute your'e out there
And something slips

Outro: G Bm A D

About the artist behind Brothers Under The Bridge:

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]
