Words whispered baby              Just as you
|D5       |         |
Turn away          I

Saw you last night out on the
Edge of town, I wanna 
Read your mind to know just what I've
Got in this new thing I've found, so tell me

|Em    G       |C     G        |
What I see                When I

|Em          G        |C    G       |
Look in your eyes             Is that

|Em  G  |D5   Em          |
You      baby   or just a

|C          |G         |D5            |
Brilliant disguise

|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G                  |
                                                  I heard somebody
|G        Gadd2|Gadd2sus  G             |
Call your name               from under-
  .        .     .        .

Neath our willow, I saw something
Tucked in shame under-
|D5              |                  |
Neath your pillow,         well I've
  .         .       .   .

Tried so hard baby, but I
Just can't see what a 
Woman like you is
Doing with me, so tell me

who I see when I
Look in your eyes, is that
You baby or just a
Brilliant disguise

|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G     |
|D5            |                       |
Look at me baby        struggling to do 
|G         Gadd2   |G    Gadd2        |
Everything right           and then it
|C             |Cmaj7   C     |
All falls apart           when
|G         Gadd2 |     G            |
Out go the lights         I'm just a
|D5           |                   |
Lonely pilgrim         I walk this
|C             |                            |
World in wealth       I want to know if it's
|D5              |                             |
You I don't trust,     'cause I damn sure don't

|G      Gadd2  |Gadd2sus   G  |G  Gadd2 |Gadd2sus   G                  | 
Trust myself                                           now you play the     

Loving woman, I'll play the
Faithful man but just don't
Look too close into the
Palm of my hand.  We

Stood at the alter, the gypsy swore our
Future was bright but
Come the wee wee hours, well maybe baby the
Gypsy lied, so when you 

Look at me, you better
Look hard and look twice, is that
Me baby or just a
Brilliant disguise

|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G              |
                                                   Tonight our
Bed is cold, I'm lost in the
Darkness of our love, God have
Mercy on the man who 
|D5                  |
Doubts what he's sure 
|G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |G  Gadd2  |Gadd2sus  G  |

Repeat until fade

About the artist behind Brilliant Disguise Tab:

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]
