{c:INTRO}
[c#m]________[f#m]________[B]________[A]________

Do you still [c#m]say your prayers little darlin' do you [f#m]go to bed at night
[B]Prayin' that tomorrow every[A]thing will be alright
Well to[c#m]morrow's fall in number in [f#m]number one by one
You [B]wake up and you're dying you don't [A]even know what from

They shot you [E]point blank you been [B]shot in the [c#m]back
Baby [B]point blank you been [A]fooled this time that's a fact
Yea [E]point blank [B]right between the [c#m]eyes baby [B]point blank[c#m]

You grew up where young girls they grow up fast
You [f#m]left behind what you asked
[B]What they asked baby wasn't right
you [A]didn't have to live that life
Well [c#m]you're gonna be my Juliet
These [f#m]days wait on that welfare check
and on [B]all the pretty things you'll never have and on [A]all the promises

That always end up [E]point blank yea [B]shot between the [c#m]eyes
[B]Point blank like [A]little white lies we tell to ease the [E]pain
You're [B]walkin' in the [c#m]sights baby [B]point blank
[A]one false move and baby the lights go [c#m]out

{c:BREAK}
|:[c#m]________[f#m]________[B]________[A]________:|

[c#m]Once I dreamed we were together again [f#m]baby you and me
Back [B]home in those old clubs the [A]way we used to be
We were [c#m]standin' at the bar it was hard to hear
The band was [f#m]playin' you were shoutin' somethin' in my ear
You pulled my [B]jacket off as the drummer counted four
You took my [A]hand and pulled me out on the floor
You just [c#m]stood there and you started dancin' slow
And I [f#m]swore I'd never let you go

Well I [B]saw you last night out on the avenue
Your [A]face was in the shadows but it was you
You were [c#m]standin' in the doorway out of the rain
You didn't [f#m]answer when I called out your name
You just [B]turned and then you looked away
 like [A]just another stranger waitin' to get blown away

[E]Point blank oh [B]right between the [c#m]eyes
Baby [B]point blank yea [A]right between the pretty lies they [E]tell
Ah you been [B]shot straight through the [c#m]heart

Yea [B]point blank you've been [A]twisted up till you've become
 just another [E]part of it baby
You're [B]walkin' in their [c#m]sights
Ah [B]point blank yea [A]one false move and baby the lights go [E]out

About the artist behind Point Blank Chords:

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]
