The promised land
Bruce Springsteen

| G | C G | Em C | C G |

      G                           Em               C
On a rattlesnake speedway in the Utah desert    I pick up my money
                    G                                 Em
and head back into town  Driving cross the Waynesboro county line
          C                              G
I got the radio on and I'm just killing time
 Em                   G                Em                       Am
Working all day in my daddy's garage   Driving all night chasing some mirage
 C                             D7
Pretty soon little girl I'm gonna take charge
Chorus:
      G                                  C     G                 Em       C     
The dogs on Main Street howl `cause they understand  If I could take one moment 
         G                             C     G      Em     C                 G
into my hands Mister I ain't a boy no I'm a man And I believe in a promised land

G                        Em                      C               
I've done my best to live the right way   I get up every morning 
                    G                                     Em
and go to work each day   But your eyes go blind and your blood runs cold
             C                             G     Em                   G
Sometimes I feel so weak I just want to explode  Explode and tear this town apart
  Em                            Am              C                           D7
Take a knife and cut this pain from my heart  Find somebody itching for something 
                                                                        to start

          G                            Em                       C    
There's a dark cloud rising from the desert floor   I packed my bags
                                   G                                 Em
and I'm heading straight into the storm Gonna be a twister to blow everything down
            C                          G      Em                        G    apart
That ain't got the faith to stand its ground Blow away the dreams that tear you
 Em                        G               Em                      Am     nothing
Blow away the dreams that break your heart Blow away the lies that leave you 
     C              D7
But lost and brokenhearted    Chorus +

    Em     C                 G         Em     C                 G
And I believe in a promised land   And I believe in a promised land
