Adam Raised A Cain Chords
Adam Raised A Cain - Bruce Springsteen

Em  Am    Em  Am    Em  Am    Am   Em

Em        Am          Em  Am          Em   Am       Am  Em
In the summer that I was baptized my father held me to his side
               Am       Em  Am          Em    Am          Am  Em
As they put me to the water he said how on that day I cried
         Am          C
We were prisoners of love a love in chains
         Am                        C
He was standin' in the door I was standin' in the rain
          Am                    B7
With the same hot blood burning in our veins

Em       Am    Em            Am
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain
     Em       Am    Em            Am 
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain

All of the old faces ask you why you're back
They fit you with position and the keys to your daddy's Cadillac
In the darkness of your room your mother calls you by your true name
You remember the faces the places the names
You know it's never over it's relentless as the rain
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain, 
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain

Em  Am    Em  Am    Em  Am    Am   Em

In the Bible Cain slew Abel and East of Eden he was cast
You're born into this life paying for the sins of somebody else's past  
Daddy worked his whole life for nothing but the pain
Now he walks these empty rooms looking for something to blame
You inherit the sins you inherit the flames
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain, 
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain

Am                             C
Lost but not forgotten from the dark heart of a dream
     Em       Am
Adam raised a Cain (to fade out)

About the artist behind Adam Raised A Cain 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]
