Badlands chords – Bruce Springsteen V5

 Badlands - Bruce Springsteen

 E A B E A B E A B A B7 E A B 
Lights out tonight trouble in the heartland
      E A B 
Got a head-on collision smashin' in my guts man
       E A B E 
I'm caught in a crossfire that I don't understand
                  A B7 
But there's one thing I know for sure girl
I don't give a damn for the same old played out scenes 
I don't give a damn for just the in-betweens 
Honey I want the heart I want the soul i want control right now 
You better listen to me baby
      A 
Talk about a dream try to make it real 
       B 
You wake up in the night with a fear so real 
     A B A 
You spend your life waiting for a moment that just don't come
        A B A B 
Well don't waste your time waiting

 E A C#m B 
Badlands you gotta live it every day
         E 
Let the broken hearts stand
         A C#m B 
As the price you've gotta pay
            E 
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
            A B E    |  A B  |
And these badlands start treating us good

Workin' in the field till you get your back burned
Workin' `neath the wheels till you get your facts learned
Baby I got my facts learned real good right now
You better get it straight darling 
Poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king
And a king ain't satisfied till he rules everything
I wanna go out tonight, I wanna find out what I got

Now I believe in the love that you gave me
I believe in the faith that could save me
I believe in the hope and I pray that some day
It will raise me above these

Chorus

For the ones who had a notion, a notion deep inside
That it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive
I wanna find one face that ain't looking through me
I wanna find one place, I wanna spit in the face of these

Chorus 
 E A C#m B 
Woah oh oh Badlands...

Adam Raised A Cain chords – Bruce Springsteen V2

 Adam Raised A Cain - Bruce Springsteen

 Em Am Em Am Em Am Am Em Em Am Em Am Em Am Am Em 
In the summer that I was baptized my father held me to his side
                Am Em Am Em Am Am Em 
As they put me to the water he said how on that day I cried
          Am C 
We were prisoners of love a love in chains
          Am C 
He was standin' in the door I was standin' in the rain
           Am B7 
With the same hot blood burning in our veins

      Em Am Em Am 
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain
      Em Am Em Am  
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain

All of the old faces ask you why you're back
They fit you with position and the keys to your daddy's Cadillac
In the darkness of your room your mother calls you by your true name
You remember the faces the places the names
You know it's never over it's relentless as the rain
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain, 
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain

 Em Am Em Am Em Am Am Em Em 
 Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh

In the Bible Cain slew Abel and East of Eden he was cast
You're born into this life paying for the sins of somebody else's past  
Daddy worked his whole life for nothing but the pain
Now he walks these empty rooms looking for something to blame
You inherit the sins you inherit the flames
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain, 
Adam raised a Cain, Adam raised a Cain

   Am C 
Lost but not forgotten from the dark heart of a dream
      Em Am 
Adam raised a Cain (to fade out)

Hunter Of Invisible Game chords – Bruce Springsteen

 BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: Hunter of Invisible Game
From the  High Hopes

 E - A - B - E E - A - B - E E - A - B - E E - A - B - E E A B E 
I hauled myself up out of the ditch
     E A B E 
And built me an ark of gopher wood and pitch
     E A B E 
Sat down by the roadside and waited on the rain
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game

 E - A - B - E E A B E 
Well I awoke last night to the heavy clicking and clack
       E A B E 
And a scarecrow on fire along the railroad tracks
            E A B E 
There were empty cities and burning plains
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game

 E - A - B - E E - A - B - E C#m B A E 
We all come up a little short and we go down hard
            E A B E 
These days I spend my time skipping through the dark
             E A B E 
Through the empires of dust, I chant your name
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game

 E - A - B - E E - A - B - E E A B E 
Through the bone yard rattle and black smoke We rolled on, 
 E A B E 
Down into the valley Where the beast has his throne
         E A B E 
There I sing my song and I sharpen my blade
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game

 E - A - B - E C#m B A E 
Strength is vanity and time is illusion
   E A B E 
I feel you breathing, the rest is confusion
      E A B E 
Your skin touches mine, what else to explain
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game

 E - A - B - E E - A - B - E E A B E 
Now pray for yourself that you may not fall
          E A B E 
When the hour of deliverance comes on us all
          E A B E 
When our hope and faith and courage and trust
     E A B E 
Can rise or vanish like dust into dust

            C#m B A 
There is a kingdom of love waiting to be reclaimed
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game
 E A B E 
I am the hunter of invisible game

Bobby Jean chords – Bruce Springsteen V3

 A   |   C#m   |   D   | B7sus2


       A 
Well, I came by your house the other day,
      C#m 
Your mother said you went away
     D 
She said there was nothing that I could have done,
          B7sus2
There was nothing nobody could say
 A 
Me and you we've known each other,
 A/C# 
Ever since we were sixteen
   D 
I wished I would have known, I wished I could've called you,
        B7sus2              A 
Just to say goodbye, Bobby Jean


Now you hung with me when all the others,
Turned away, turned up their nose
We liked the same bands, we liked the same music,
We liked the same clothes
We told each other that we were the wildest,
The wildest things we'd ever seen
Now I wished you would have told me, I wished I could have talked to you,
Just to say goodbye, Bobby Jean

     D 
Now we went walking in the rain,
 F#m 
Talking about the pain that from the world we hid
           D 
Now there aint nobody, no where no how,
        A E 
gonna ever understand me the way you did


Maybe you'll be out there on that road somewhere,
In some bus or train traveling along
In some motel room you'll hear a radio playing,
And you'll hear me sing this song

Well, if you do you'll know I'm thinking of you,
And all the miles in between
And I'm just calling one last time,
Not to change your mind,
                   D 
But just to say I miss you baby,
                 E A 
good luck, goodbye Bobby Jean




-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes:

The beautiful 4th chord is NOT just B7. It's B7sus2 (B-seventh-suspended-second). It 
contains the following notes:

A string = B (root note)
D string = F# (perfect 5th)
G string = A (dominant 7th)
B string = C# (suspended 2nd)
High E string = F# (perfect 5th)

This is a very basic version for guitar. The Piano plays something like this:

 Asus2  -  A  |  Asus2  -  A  |  Asus2/C#  -  A/C# 
|  Asus2/C#  -  A/C# D  -  Dsus2  |  D  -  Dsus2  | B7sus2 | B7sus2

The Wall chords – Bruce Springsteen V2

 Eb tuning
A new version of "The Wall" of of Springsteen's High Hopes. The timing is a little weird 
but easy if you listen. The lyrics are different from the unreleased version.

Pluck the chords throughout

Intro:  A - C#m A C#m 
Cigarettes and a bottle of beer, this poem that I wrote for you
            A C#m 
This black stone and these hard tears, they're all I've got left now of you
     F#m C#m 
I remember you in your Marine uniform laughing, laughing at your ship out party
           F#m C#m 
I've read Robert McNamara, he says he's sorry

                    A C#m 
Yeah, you and your boots and black t-shirt, oh, Billy you looked so bad
      A C#m 
Yeah you and your rock and roll band was the best thing this shit town ever had

         F#m A C#m 
Now the men that put you here eat with their families in rich dining halls
       F#m C#m A 
And apology and forgiveness got no place here at all, here at the wall

| A | C#m | A || C#m | F#m | A | C#m | F#m | A | C#m |

     A C#m 
I'm sorry that I missed you last year, I couldn't find no one to drive me
         A C#m 
If your eyes could cut through that black stone, tell me would they recognize me

         F#m A C#m 
For the living time it must be served, the day goes on
     F#m A C#m 
Cigarettes and a bottle of beer and skin on black stone


             A C#m 
On the ground dog tags and wreaths of flowers, with their ribbons as red as the blood
             A C#m 
Red as the blood you spilled, in the Central Highlands mud
          F#m A C#m 
Limousines rush down Pennsylvania Avenue rustling the leaves as they fall
  F#m A C#m A E 
Apology and forgiveness got no place here at all, here at the wall

| A | C#m | A | C#m | F#m | A | C#m | F#m | A | C#m | (x2 and fade out)

Outlaw Pete chords – Bruce Springsteen V2

 Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Song: Outlaw Pete
 Working on a Dream
 Hugo Kleinhans (hugotahell)



 Am D 
He was born a little baby on the Appalachian Trail
      E Am 
At six months old he'd done three months in jail
 Am D 
Here at the bank in his diapers and his little bare baby feet
 E Am            
All he said was "Folks, my name is Outlaw Pete."

Chorus
       C 
I'm Outlaw Pete!
       G 
I'm Outjaw Pete!
          Am 
Can you hear me?
   D 
Doo, doo, doo, doo doo



             Am D 
At twenty-five a mustang pony he did steal
                 E Am 
And they rode around and 'round on heaven's wheel
           Am D 
Father Jesus, I'm an outlaw killer and a thief
        E Am 
And I slowed down only to saw my grief

        C 
I'm Outlaw Pete!
        G 
I'm Outlaw Pete!
          Am 
Can you hear me?
   D 
Doo, doo, doo, doo doo


                 F C 
They cut his trail of tears across the countryside
           G D E 
And where he went, women wept and men died



          Am D 
One night he woke from a vision of his own death
      E Am 
Saddled his pony and rode her deep into the West
          Am D 
Married a Navajo girl and settled down on the res
                   E Am 
And as the smoke fell he held that beautiful daughter to his chest

        C 
I'm Outlaw Pete!
       G 
I'm Outlaw Pete! 
         Am 
Can you hear me?
           D 
Can you hear me?
          C    
Can you hear me?

Instrumental Break:   C  -  F  -  Am  -  F  x2

              F C 
Out of the East on an Irish stallion came Bounty Hunter Dan
               G Am 
His heart quickened and burned by the need to get his man
                  F C 
He found Pete peacefully fishing by the river, pulled his gun and got the drop
                 G D F E 
He said, "Pete, you think you've changed, but you have not."

                Am D 
He cocked his pistol, pulled the trigger and shot him ?let it start?
             E Am 
He drew a knife from his boot and pierced Dan through the heart
         Am D 
Dan smiled as he laid in his own blood dying in the sun
                          E Am 
And whispered in Pete's ear, "We cannot undue these things we've done."
  
           C 
You're Outlaw Pete!
           G 
You're Outlaw Pete!
          Am 
Can you hear me?
           D 
Can you hear me?
          E 
Can you hear me?

             Am D 
For forty days and nights Pete rode and did not stop
              E Am 
Till he sat high upon an icy mountain top
                 Am D 
He watched the hawk on a desert updraft slip and slide
                E Am 
Moved to the edge and dug his spurs deep into his pony's side

Hey, Eddie, can you lend me a few bucks
                     Cmaj7 
And tonight can you get us a ride
       Dsus2 
Gotta make it through the tunnel
                                 A 
Got a meeting with a man on the other side
     G7sus                       
Hey Eddie, this guy, he's the real thing
           F 
So if you want to come along
                                  Em7

And the word's been passed this is our last chance


We gotta stay cool tonight, Eddie
`Cause man, we got ourselves out on that line
And if we blow this one
They ain't gonna be looking for just me this time

And all we gotta do is hold up our end
Here stuff this in your pocket
It'll look like you're carrying a friend
And remember, just don't smile
Change your shirt, `cause tonight we got style

Well Cherry says she's gonna walk
`Cause she found out I took her radio and hocked it
But Eddie, man, she don't understand
That two grand's practically sitting here in my pocket

And tonight's gonna be everything that I said
And when I walk through that door
I'm just gonna throw that money on the bed
She'll see this time I wasn't just talking
Then I'm gonna go out walking

Hey Eddie, can you catch us a ride?

When I’m wrapped up in my baby’s arms

My little girl gives me everything
                              D       
I know some day that she’ll wear my ring
                                G 
So don’t bother me man I ain’t got no time
                            D 
I’m on my way to see that girl of mine
                                  A

I see you on the streets and you look so tired
                                            D 
Girl I know that job you got leaves you so un - inspired
                            A 
When I come by to take you out to eat

DOWN IN THE HOLE
by Bruce Springsteen 
(High Hopes)

Here´s my attempt of playing along to this song. I´m not a 100% sure about everything 

but I think I got it 60-70% right. The outro is kinda hard to hear so this is just a guess. 

Corrections welcome!

Sun comes every morning but it ain't no friend

I get dressed and I go back again
 Am 
The rain keeps on falling on twisted bones and dirt
 Am C 
I'm buried to my heart here in this hurt
 G 
Fire keeps on burning, you're waiting in the cold
            Am 
Down in the hole


 Am 
Dark and bloody autumn pierces my heart
 Am C 
The memory of your kiss tears me apart
 Am 
The sky above is turning, the world below's gone gray
 Am C 
I thought that I could turn and walk away
 G 
Fire keeps on burning, and I'm working in the cold
            Am 
Down in the hole


 F C G 
Radio's crackling with the headlines, wind in the phone lines

The sun upon your shoulder, empty city skylines

The day rips apart, a dark and bloody arrow pierced my heart

I got nothing but heart and sky and sunshine, the things you left behind

I wake to find my city's gone to black

I'm gonna dig right here until I get you back
