Racing In The Street Chords (ver 3) - Bruce Springsteen

Racing In The Street Chords
Racing In The Street  by Bruce Springsteen

[C] I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie [F] heads and a Hurst on the floor
[Dm] She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the [F] Seven-Eleven [C] store

Me and my [C] partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he [F] rides with me from town to town
We only [Dm] run for the money got no strings attached
We shut `em [F] up and then we shut `em [C] down

[C] Tonight tonight the strip's just right
I'm gonna [F] blow `em off in my first heat
[Dm] Summer's here and the time is right
For [F] racin' in the C street

[C We take all the action we can meet
And we [F] cover all the northeast states
When the [Dm] strip shuts down we run `em in the street
>From the [F] fire roads to the interstate

Now [C ]Some guys they just give up living
And start dying [F] little by little piece by piece
Some guys [Dm] come home from work and wash up
And  go [F] racin' in the street

[C] Tonight tonight the strip's just right
I'm gonna [F] blow `em all out of their seats
[Dm] Calling out around the world
We're going [F] racin' in the street

[C] He met her on the strip three years ago
In a [F] Camaro with this dude from L.A.
He [Dm] blew that Camaro off his back 
and he [F] drove that little girl away

But now there's [C] wrinkles around his baby's eyes
And she [F] cries herself to sleep at night
When [Dm] he comes home the house is dark
She says [F] Baby  make it all right

She [C] sits on the porch of her daddy's house
But [F] all her pretty dreams are torn
She [Dm] stares out alone into the night
With the eyes of [F] one who hates for just being born

For all the [C] shut-down strangers and hot rod angels 
[F] Rumbling through this promised land
[Dm] Tonight my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea
And [F] wash these sins off our hands

[C] Tonight tonight the highway's bright
Out of our [F] way mister you best keep
Cause [Dm] summer's here and the time is right
For [F] racin' in the street [C]

About the artist behind Racing In The Street 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]
