  G                        C              G
    The screen door slams,    Christie's dress waves
           F                  C                      G
    Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
         C                      G      
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely, 
                F                      C
    hey that's me babe and I want you only
                  G             C                       G
    Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again tonight

                                 C                       G
    Don't run back inside, baby, you know just what I'm here for
    So you're scared and you're thinking that
                         C               G
    Maybe we ain't that young any more
                   C             G
    Woman, there's magic in the night
                F                         C
    You ain't a beauty but hey you're all right
    Oh and that's alright with me

            G                        C/G D
    You can hide beneath your covers and study your pain,
         G                               C
    Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
   G                  D                     C                         D
    Waste your summer praying in vain for a savior to rise from these streets
             G          C/G     D
    Well I aint no hero that's understood
             G                              C
    All the redemption I can offer babe is beneath this old hood
   G                                D        
    With one last chance to make it good somehow
        C                     D 
    hey what else can you do now except
    G                       C                  G
    Roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
                                           D                      C
    Well the night's busting open and these two lanes can take us anywhere
    We got one last chance to make it real
        G                        C
    to trade in these wings for some wheels
   G                                    D
    Climb in back, it's waiting down on the tracks

           G                   C/G  D
    Well I tried hard Christie to  understand 
         G                          C
    I'm ridin' out tonight to case the promised land
    G                           D
    Babe, if you're born with nothin' in your hands 
    C                   D
    Hey It's your only chance   

              G               C/G     D
    Well It's lyin' out there like a killer in the sun      
      G                               C
    Yeah I know it's late, but we can make it if we run 
   G         D                  C
    Oh I wish you could come, so leave what you've lost
                 D               G
    Leave what's grown old, on thunder road
           Em                             C                      
    Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk    
           G                                      D
    And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
          C                       D
    From your front porch to my front seat
               G                       C       D
    Hey door's open but the ride ain't free

                     G                        C            G
    Well there were ghosts in the eyes of the boys you sent away
    They haunt this dirty beach road in the skeleton remains of
    burned-out Chevrolets
    They scream to you at night from the street
                    F                           C
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
               G      G/C         D                     
    And in the lonely cool before dawn
                       G    G/C              D
    From your room you hear their engines roar on
                 G                        C                 D           
    But when you get to the porch, they're gone lost in the wind 
    so Christie climb in
           C                       D                       G
    It's a town full of losers I'm pulling out of here to win

It definitely has errors, but it isn't terrible.

About the artist behind Thunder Road Acoustic 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]
