This Hard Land Chords
  D              G               A                             D
        Hey there mister, can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
    D                      G         A                   D
	Can you give me a reason sir, as to why they've never grown
                    G                   D
	They've just blown around from town to town
                    A                   D
	'Til they're back out on these fields
    G                    D
	Where they fall from my hand
         A                     D              
	Back into the dirt of this hard land.

	Now me and my sister, from Germantown yes we did ride
	We made our bed sir from the rock on the mountainside
	We been blowin' around form town to town
	Lookin' for a place to stand
	Where the sun bursts through the clouds to fall like a circle
	Like a circle of fire down on this hard land.

	Now even the rain it don't come 'round, don't come 'round here no more
	And the only sound at night's the wind slammin' the back porch door
	It just stirs you up like it wants to blow you down
	Twistin' and churnin' up the sand
	Leavin' all them scarecrows lyin' face down
	Face down in the dirt of this hard land.

	From a building upon the hill I can hear a tape deck blastin' Home On The Range
	I can see them Bar-M choppers sweeping low across the plains
	It's me and you Frank, we're lookin for lost cattle
	Our hooves twistin' and churnin' up the sand
	We're ridin' in the whirlwind searching for lost treasure
	Way down south of the Rio Grande
	We're ridin' across that river in the moonlight
	Up on to the banks of this hard land.

	Hey Frank won't you pack your bags and meet me tonight down at Liberty Hall
	Just one more kiss from you my brother and we'll ride until we fall
	We'll sleep in the fields, we'll sleep by the rivers
	And in the morning we'll make a plan
	Well if you can't make it stay hard, stay hungry, stay alive if you can
	And meet me in a dream of this hard land.

About the artist behind This Hard Land 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]
