Protection Chords
[Intro]
Em    D     Em     D

[Verse 1]
Em                       
Night after night I keep holding on
D                                        Em
You say you love me then you leave me so lonely
Em                      
Well I don't believe a single thing you're sayin'
D                                       Em
I think it's all some evil game you're playin'
G                        Em  
Still all day long all I do is think about you
G                         Em
You got me believin' that I can't live without you
C                          G         D
Well if you want it, well here is my confession
C                    B
And I can't help it, you're my obsession

[Chorus]
Em       
Protection, that's what I need
       D                           Em
I want protection, baby, from your love
Em       
Protection, that's what I need
       D                           Em
I want protection, baby, from your love

[Verse 2]
Em
The phone rings in the middle of the night
D                               Em        
And when I pick it up you won't answer
Em
Knock on the door, I rush down the stairs
D
When I open up, there's no one there
G                   Em
Out in the darkness I feel your eyes on me
G                Em
I lay in bed and feel your arms upon me
C                   G       D
Well is it all just my imagination?
C                     B
You keep my in doubt believing I can't live without you

[Chorus]
Em       
Protection, that's what I need
       D                           Em
I want protection, baby, from your love
Em       
Protection, that's what I need
       D                           Em
I want protection, baby, from your love

[Solo]
G   Em   G   Em  

C   G  D    C   B

[Verse 3]
Em              
I stand alone at my window
D                      
I see you waitin' in the shadows down below
Em                  
I feel your fingers on my face
D                           B
I know I want to stay, but I want to run away

[Chorus]
Em       
Protection, that's what I need
       D                           Em
I want protection, baby, from your love
Em       
Protection, that's what I need
       D                           Em
I want protection, baby, from your love

About the artist behind Protection 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]
