Shut Out The Light Chords
Bruce Springsteen - Shut out the Light

E

    E                                   A                E
The runway rushed up at him as he felt the wheels touch down
    E                                    B
He stood out on the blacktop and took a taxi into town
    E                                    A            E
He got out down on Main Street and went into a local bar
    E                   B                A
He bought a drink and found a seat in a corner in the dark
          E                          A
Well she called up her mama to make sure the kids were out of the house
     E                          
She checked herself out in the dining room mirror
                B
And undid an extra button on her blouse
     E                              A               E
He felt her lying next to him, the clock said 4:00 am
    E                  B
He was staring at the ceiling
                      E
He couldn't move his hands


CHORUS:
    A                E
Oh ma-ma ma-ma ma-ma come quick
     A                      E
I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
            A                    E
Throw your arms around me in the cold dark night
   B               E       
Hey now mama don't shut out the light
           A
Don't you shut out the light
           E
Don't you shut out the light
           A
Don't you shut out the light
           B            E
Don't you shut out the light


             E                                      A                E
Well on his porch they stretched a banner that said "Johnny Welcome Home"
      E                                          B
Bobby pulled his Ford out of the garage and they polished up the chrome
      E                                          A                 E
His mama said "Johnny oh Johnny, I'm so glad to have you back with me"
    E                           B                                       E  
His pa said he was sure they'd give him his job back down at the factory


CHORUS:
    A                E
Oh ma-ma ma-ma ma-ma come quick
     A                      E
I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
            A                    E
Throw your arms around me in the cold dark night
   B               E       
Hey now mama don't shut out the light
           A
Don't you shut out the light
           E
Don't you shut out the light
           A
Don't you shut out the light
           B            E
Don't you shut out the light


      E                        A                  E
Well deep in a dark forest, a forest filled with rain
    E                                        B
Beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there's a river without a name
        E                 A             E
In the cold black water Johnson Leneir stands
    E                 B                                           E
He stares across the lights of the city and dreams of where he's been


CHORUS:
    A                E
Oh ma-ma ma-ma ma-ma come quick
     A                      E
I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
            A                    E
Throw your arms around me in the cold dark night
   B               E       
Hey now mama don't shut out the light
           A
Don't you shut out the light
           E
Don't you shut out the light
           A
Don't you shut out the light
           E
Don't you shut out the light
           A
Don't you shut out the light
           B            E
Don't you shut out the light

About the artist behind Shut Out The Light 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]
