Streets Of Philadelphia chords
Bruce Springsteen

F Am 2x *

F
I was bruised and battered,

and I couldn't tell what I felt
      Am
I was unrecognizable, to myself
         F
Saw my reflection in a window,

I didn't know my own face
            Am
Oh, brother are you gonna leave me wasting away,
                       Bb     Bb F C  Bb F C
on the streets of Philadelphia?

F
I walked the avenue till my legs felt like stone,
            Am
I heard the voices of friends vanished and gone
                 F
At night I could hear the blood in my veins,
        Am
just as black and whispering as the rain,
                       Bb     Bb F C  Bb F C 
on the streets of Philadelphia

Bb                   Dm
Ain't no angel gonna greet me;
Bb                     F
it's just you and I my friend
Am                   Bb
And my clothes don't fit me no more;
C
I walked a thousand miles just to slip this skin

F
The night has fallen, I'm lying awake,
      Am
I can feel myself fading away
     F
So receive me brother with your faithless kiss,
           Am
or will we leave each other alone like this,
                       Bb    Bb F C  Bb F C 
on the streets of Philadelphia

Bb F C  Bb F C

About the artist behind Streets Of Philadelphia 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]
