Cadillac Ranch Chords
This is a great song Live.  On the river album it's played in the key of G,
 when they play it live it's in the Key of F.  This tab is for the live 
verion, but I'll include chords for the album version as well.

Intro:

B|-----------------------------------||-------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------||----10--10--10--10-10----------------|
D|---10---10--10--10--12--10--10-10--||--12------12---------12-12--10--10-10|
A|-12-------12------12--12-----------||--------------------------12---------|
E|-----------------------------------||-------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------||--------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------||--------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------||--10-10-10--10-10-10-12-12-14-12-10---|
D|-10-10-10--10-10-10--12--10--10-10||12--------12--------------------------|
A|12-------12--------12--12---------||--------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------||--------------------------------------|

Now for the chords I use a capo on the first fret because I hate playing 
bar chords.  So, instead of playing F, Bb, and C, with the capo on 
I play E, A and Bsus.  If you're playing the studio version, the 
chords are G, C, and D.

So, the chords translate like this:
 With 1st fret capo
F  = E
Bb = A
C  = bsus

 Studio Version
F  = G
Bb = C
C  = D

F
Well there she sits buddy just a-gleamin' in the sun
Bb                            F
There to greet a workin' man when his day is done
F
I'm gonna pack my pa. I'm gonna pack my aunt.
    Bb                         C        F
And we'll take em' down to the cadillac ranch.

F
Eldorado fins, white walls and skirts.
Bb                              F

F
Well buddy when I die, throw my body in the back.
Bb                      C          F
Ride me to the junkyard in my cadillac.

Cadillac. Cadillac.
Bb             F
Long and dark. Shiny and black.
F
Open up. Your engines let em' roar.
Bb                            C           F
Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur.

F
James Dean in that Mercury '49.
Bb                                 F

Bb                            C           F
Tearin' up the highway just a big old dinosaur.


F

Bb                        F
Drivin' along through the Wisconsin night
F
You're my last love, you're my last chance
Bb                                C        F
Don't let em' take me down to the cadillac ranch.

Long and dark, shiny and black.

Came and took my little girl away.

F
Cadillac. Cadillac.
Bb             F
Long and dark, shiny and black.
F
Open up. Your engines let 'em roar.
Bb                            C           F

About the artist behind Cadillac Ranch 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]
