Bruce Springsteen's cover version of Lorde's hit "Royals" which he played at Auckland 03/02/2014.

Capo 5th fret
Double Drop D Tuning: D-A-D-G-B-D

Chords used in song:

D2:           000230
Cadd9:        030030
G6/E (G6):    020030

In parts of this song Springsteen thumps his palm on the bridge of the 
guitar to keep the beat while holding down the selected chord. 
I've marked this parts as "PT", Palm Thump.
For example, if it stands G6 PT-3, you're going to thump on the bridge 
of the guitar three times while holding down the G6 chord.

The song goes in 3/4 time. Please contact me or look at Bruce's 
performance of the song if you need help 
figuring out the Palm Thumping parts.

Intro (with harp):

D2 - D2 - D2 - Cadd9 - G6 x4



VERSE:

D2
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh

Cadd9
I cut my teeth on wedding rings       in the movies

D2
And I'm not proude of my address

In this torned up town, in this torned up town



PRE-CHORUS:

D2
And every song's like goold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom

blood stains, ball gowns, thrashin' the hotel room

Cadd9         G6
I don't care, baby I don't care

D2
Everybody's like cristal, maybach, diamonds on your time piece

Jet planes, island, tigers on a gold leash

Cadd9         G6                                 PT-3
I don't care, I'm not caught up in your love affair

CHORUS:

D2
And I'll never be royal        Don't run in our blood

Cadd9                                   G6
That kind just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of love

D2                             
Let me be your ruler,      You can call me King B

Cadd9            G6(         Quit playing        )

VERSE:

(Cadd9)        D2
My friends and I we cracked the code

Cadd9
We count our dollars on the train       to the party

D2       
And everyone who knows us knows

That we're fine with this, we didn't come from money

PRE-CHORUS:

D2
And every fucking song's like goold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the 
bathroom

blood stains, ball gowns, thrashin' the hotel room

About the artist behind Royals 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]
