Better Days Chords
Better Days
Bruce Springsteen
By Steini

Well my soul checked out missin' as I sat listenin'
        D                          Hm
To the hours and minutes tickin' away.
Yeah, just sittin around waitin' for my life to begin
             Em                  G
While it was all just slippin' away
Well I'm tired of waitin' for tomorrow to come
          D                               Hm
For the train to come rollin' 'round the bend
I got a new suit of clothes and a pretty red rose
  Em                    G
A women I can call my friend

G                 D                          D                     G
These are Better Days, baby   Yeah, there's Better Days shinin' through
G                 D                  Em           G         D
These are Better Days, baby   Better Days with a girl like you

Well I took a piss at fortune's sweet kiss
          D                     Hm
It's like eatin' cavier in the dirt
It's a sad funny ending when you find yourself pretending
        Em                         G
To be a rich man in a poor man's shirt
Now my ass was draggin from a passin' gypsy wagon
      D                     Hm
Your heart like a diamond shown
Tryin' to lay it in your arms, count the lucky charms
    Em                      G
Get out of these hard luck bones

G                 D                          D                     G
These are Better Days, baby   Yeah, there's Better Days shinin' through
G                 D                  Em         G        D
These are Better Days, baby   Better Days are shining through
G     Hm     E G      D

       D                                                D                  Hm
Now a life of leisure, and a pirate's treasure   Don't make much for tragedy.
It's a sad man, my friend, whose livin' in his own skin,
     Em                   G
And can't stand the company.
       D                                                D                     Hm
Every fools got a reason to feel sorry for himself And turning his heart to stone
Drag this fool half way to heaven, just a mile on to hell
       Em                   G
And I feel like I'm comin' home!

About the artist behind Better Days 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]
