Dancing In The Dark chords
Bruce Springsteen

Capo II *

G Em  G Em  2x

G               Em    G
I get up in the evening
                Em         G
and I ain't got nothing to say
I come home in the morning
  G         Em               C
I go to bed feeling the same way
                    Am   C
I ain't nothing but tired
             Am                     G
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
          Em  G         Em                D
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without a spark
               Am  C
This gun's for hire
                   Am             G
even if we're just dancing in the dark

G                     Em    G
Message keeps getting clearer
                   Em                G
radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place
I check my look in the mirror
  G               Em                   C
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
                    Am    C
Man I ain't getting nowhere
         Am                    G
I'm just living in a dump like this
                            Em      G
There's something happening somewhere
            Em              D
baby I just know that there is

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without a spark
               Am  C
This gun's for hire
                   Am             G
even if we're just dancing in the dark

Em                     G
You sit around getting older
C                       D                 Em
there's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
I'll shake this world off my shoulders
C                 D
come on baby this laugh's on me

G                           Em  G
Stay on the streets of this town
               Em               G
and they'll be carving you up alright
                        Em   G
They say you gotta stay hungry
              Em                    C
hey baby, I'm just about starving tonight
                   Am    C
I'm dying for some action
                           Am                        G
I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write this book
                Em    G
I need a love reaction
                 Em             D
come on now baby gimme just one look

D                                                          C
You can't start a fire sitting 'round crying over a broken heart
               Am  C
This gun's for hire
                   Am             D
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
               Am  C
This gun's for hire
                   Am             G   C
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
                   Am             G   C
Even if we're just dancing in the dark  2x

Hey baby

About the artist behind Dancing In The Dark 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]
