                         Nebraska (Live 1975/1985 version) - Bruce Springsteen
                         Recorded August 6, 1984 at Meadowlands Arena
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: KerNeL KLuTcH

Tuning: E standard, Capo 3 (all fret numbers in relation to capo)

notes: this is my first tab but I think it's right.
I know the Dsus2 is right but the rest is very difficult to hear on the recording, any 
and all corrections are welcomed.
(I think the notes without parenthesis are the right notes
but the ones with them might be the correct ones)

Gtr. 1 - Nils Lofgren (Acoustic Guitar - 12 string)
(since Nils plays with a thumbpick the B and e strings
are most likely played with the index and middle fingers respectively, it sounds fine 
picked though)

Tempo: Quarter Note = 126
let ring throughout

Midnight in a prison storeroom with leather straps across my chest

About the artist behind Nebraska Tab:

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]
