Gave It A Name - Bruce Springsteen


| D | G | D | G | D | G | D | G | D


In the fields of the lord
      G            D
Stood Abel and Cain
               G
Cain slew Abel 'neath the black rain
                               Bm          A
At night he couldn't stand the guilt or the blame
                G    D
So he gave it a name
                G    D
So he gave it a name
                G A  D | G | D | G | D
So he gave it a name 

                 G                D
Billy got drunk, angry at his wife
                 G
He hit her once, he hit her twice
                     Bm                        A
At night he'd lie in bed, he couldn't stand the shame
                G    D
So he gave it a name
                G    D
So he gave it a name
                G A  D | G | D | G | D | G | D | G | D | G | D | G | D
So he gave it a name 

                           G             D
Pa told me "Son, one thing I know is true
                        G
Poison snake bites you, you're poison too"
                         Bm                      A
At night I can feel that poison runnin' 'round my veins
