The Wall Chords
Bruce Springsteen: The Wall
Unreleased, Live November 16 2005 version

    G                      D          G                 D  
Cigarettes and a bottle of beer, this poem that I wrote for you
           G                    D             G                     D 
This black stone and these hard tears they're all I've got left now of you
    Bm                                                                    D
I remember you in your Marine uniform laughing, laughing at your ship out party
          Bm                            D
I've read Robert McNamara, he says he's sorry

                   G                 D          G                   D
Yeah, you and your boots and black t-shirt, oh, Billy you looked so bad
     G                          D            G                              D        
Yeah you and your rock and roll band was the best thing this shit town ever had

        Bm                                                    D
Now the men that put you here eat with their families in rich dining halls
      Bm                                         D
And apology and forgiveness got no place here at all, here at the wall

    G                            D                G              D
I'm sorry that I missed you last year, I couldn't find no one to drive me
        G                                 D              G               D   
If your eyes could cut through that black stone, tell me would they recognize me

        Bm                                  D
For the living time it must be served, life goes on
    Bm                                      D
Cigarettes and a bottle of beer and skin on black stone

| G | G | G | D | G | G | G | D | D |

            G                  D                G                  D     
High school pictures and paper flowers, there's ribbons as red as the blood
            G                D       G                  D
Yeah as the blood you spilled in the Central Highlands mud
         Bm                                             D
Now the limousines rush down Pennsylvania Avenue as the rain falls
 Bm                                       D
Apology and forgiveness got no place here at all

About the artist behind The Wall 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]
