Dont Back Down Chords
Don't Back Down
Bruce Springsteen
Recorded in early 1983 at Bruce's home studio in Los Angeles. The recordings made there
are him playing all the
instruments besides the drums, which is played by a drum machine. This song was
considered for the 'Born In
The U.S.A.' album, but it was ultimately rejected.

One, two, one, two, three

          A
When the night winds rustle the far away leaves
         E                                  A
Rolling down the Conna valley through the cottonwood trees
A
And a white river rises with last season's rains
   E                           A
I awake in the darkness and I call your name

[chorus]
            D
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down
                   D
Baby, don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
             E
Don't back down on our love
             A
Don't back down


I lie awake and I know that sleep won't come soon
      E                                                      A
So I watch the headlights crawl up and down the wall of the lonesome room

Think of that club by the river where we danced on and on
              E                                      A
We swore our love would last forever and you laughed on and on

[chorus]
            D
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down

[bridge]
                        D                                  A
Yeah, come on, I wanna weep but I'm broke inside and the tears won't run
            E                                      A
I want to sleep but there ain't no dream and the sleep won't come

[guitar solo]

A      /  D  /    A    /   D   /   A    /     E    /   A

A
Last night I stood on Black Mountain and looked out to the sea
            D                                 A
Where the waters of Mystery River go rushing endlessly
         D                                       A
And the love we swore would last as long as the waters roared on
    E                            A
I awoke in the darkness, it was gone, gone, gone

[outro]
            D
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down
                  D
Baby, don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down
                  D
Baby, don't back down on our love
            A
Don't back down on our love
            E
Don't back down on our love
                 A
Baby don't back down

About the artist behind Dont Back Down 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]
