4TH OF JULY, ASBURY PARK (SANDY)  (From "The Wild, the Innocent, The E St...")

Note:  Transcribed from the book "Springsteen Complete"

INTRO:  C   F   C   F

Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
C         F                                 C

Forcin' a light into all thode stoned-out faces left stranded on this warm July
Am                                                   Gsus

Down in town the circuit's full wit switchblade lovers so fast so shiny so sharp
        C                           F                     C

As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
       Am                                      Gsus

And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers on
        F                          G                           C

   the shore

Chasin' all them silly New York girls
        Gsus                    G       F/G   G7

Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us, the pier lights our carnival life forever
F  C  F          C           F/G  G  G7   F    C          F        C         F

Love me tonight for I may never see you again, hey Sandy girl
F       C           F C   G                              Dm7   G7   C

Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for trying to sleep on
   the beach all night
Them boys in their spiked high heels ah Sandy their skins are so white
And me I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades bangin' them pleasure
Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where they promise to unsnap
   their jeans
And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag
I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And that Joey kept me spinnin' I didn't think I'd ever get off

Oh Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us
The pier lights our carnival life on the water
Runnin' down the beach at night with my boss's daughter
Well he ain't my boss no more Sandy

Sandy the angels have lost their desire for us
I spoke to `em just last night and they said they won't set themselves on fire
   for us anymore
Every summer when the weather gets hot they ride that road down from heaven on
   their Harleys they come and they go
And you can see `em dressed like stars in all the cheap little seashore bars
   parked making love with their babies out on the Kokomo
Well the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin' fortunes better than they
This boardwalk life for me is through
You know you ought to quit this scene too

Sandy the aurora's rising behind us, the pier lights our carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever

About the artist behind Sandy 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]
