[Verse 1]

A
I get up in the evening, And I aint got nothing to say
                                                         D
I come home in the morning, I go to bed feeling the same way
                    Bm     D            Bm                    
A
I ain't nothing but tired, Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
          F#m   A       F#m                E
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help


[Chorus]

E                                                        D
You can't start a fire, you can't start a fire without a spark
               Bm    D                  Bm             A
This gun's for hire, even if we're just dancing in the dark

(Play MAIN RIFF once)


[Verse 2]

A
Messages keep getting clearer, Radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place
                                                                      D
I check my look in the mirror, I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
                    Bm       D     Bm                    A
Man I ain't getting nowhere, Just living in a dump like this,
A                           F#m        A    F#m      
             E
There's something happening somewhere, Baby I just know that there is


[Chorus]

E                                                        D
You can't start a fire, You can't start a fire without a spark
               Bm    D                  Bm             A
This gun's for hire, Even if we're just dancing in the dark

(Play MAIN RIFF twice)


[Bridge]

F#m                    A
You sit around getting older
D                       E                 F#m
There's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
F#m                          A
I'll shake this world off my shoulders
D                E
Come on baby the laugh's on me


[Verse 3]

A
Stay on the streets of this town, And they'll be carving you up all right
                                                                  D
They say you gotta stay hungry, Hey baby, I'm just about starving tonight
                   Bm      D                         Bm
I'm dying for some action, I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write
     A                   F#m       A       F#m       
         E
this book, I need a love reaction, Come on baby gimme just one look


[Chorus]

E                                                           D
You can't start a fire, Sitting around crying over a broken heart
               Bm    D                  Bm             E
This gun's for hire, Even if we're just dancing in the dark
E                                                                D
You can't start a fire, Worrying about your little world falling apart
               Bm    D                  Bm             E
This gun's for hire, Even if we're just dancing in the dark


[Outro]

A
Even if we're just dancing in the dark (repeat through the ending)

About the artist behind Dancing In The Dark 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]
