Intro: F    Bb    F    C        F    Am    Bb    Csus-C
       F             Bb         F                       F
The screen door slams  Mary's dress waves       Like a vision she dances 
   C                       Bb                                          C
across the porch    As the radio plays    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
            F                 Bb                                  F
Hey that's me and I want you only    Don't turn me home again  I just can't face 
myself alone again
       F                        Bb                       F
Don't run back inside    darling you know just what I'm here for
                                             C                   Bb
So you're scared and you're thinking   That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
             F                        Bb              F                  C
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright   Oh and that's alright with me
         F                            Dm                    F
You can hide neath your covers  And study your pain  Make crosses from your lovers
      Bb                F                    Am
Throw roses in the rain   Waste your summer praying in rain
       Bb                           C7              F
For a saviour to rise from these streets   Well now I'm no hero
       Dm                     F                               Bb
That's understood  All the redemption I can offer, girl Is beneath this dirty hood
F                          Am                 Bb                 C7
 With a chance to make it good somehow  Hey what else can we do now
        F                     Bb                     F
Except roll down the window   And let the wind blow back your hair
                                        C                    Bb
Well the night's busting open   These two lanes will take us anywhere
                                   C          F                            Bb
We got one last chance to make it real   To trade in these wings on some wheels
                 F                 C
Climb in back   Heaven's waiting on down the tracks   
F           Dm               F                    Bb
Oh oh come take my hand     Riding out tonight to case the promised land  
F  Am               Bb              C7
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road oh Thunder Road  
 F                      Dm                        F
Lying out there like a killer in the sun      Hey I know it's late 
        Bb                 F         Am         Bb          C7             F
we can make it if we run   Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold   Thunder Road
       Bb                        C                         F
Well I got this guitar    And I learned how to make it talk
       Dm                                              Bb   C
And my car's out back    If you're ready to take that long walk
           Bb                      C               Am                          Dm
From your front porch to my front seat  The door's open but the ride it ain't free
       Bb              Bb/A               Gm7      Bb/F
And I know you're lonely   For words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free    All the promises'll be broken
             F                        Bb              F
There were ghosts in the eyes    Of all the boys you sent away
                                           C                 Bb
They haunt this dusty beach road  In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
                                            C                 F
They scream your name at night in the street Your graduation gown lies in rags at 
    Bb                        Am
their feet        And in the lonely cool before dawn
               Bb                                Gm                        C
You hear their engines roaring on   But when you get to the porch they're gone
       Bb                  Gm            Bb
On the wind, so Mary climb in    It's a town full of losers
         C                      F  F
And I'm pulling out of here to win.
F    C    F    Bb      F    C    Bb    C

About the artist behind Thunder Road 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]
