I thought I'd upload a slightly easier capo'ed version. It's basically the same as 
the others but I think the Boss plays with a capo. :)

Capo 1st fret - all chords relative

Intro - E A E B E C#m A B

     E                A         E
The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
       E                   B                      A
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
     A                       B      
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
           E                  A
Hey that's me and I want you only
               A            E                B
Don't turn me home again I just can't face myself alone again
       E                        A                      E
Don't run back inside darling, you know just what I'm here for
           E                               B                   A
So you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
             E                        A
You ain't a beauty but hey, you're alright
        E                  B
Oh and that's alright with me
         E                           C#m
You can hide 'neath your covers and study your pain
      E                         A                      E
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
                    G#m                   A                          B7
Waste your summers prayin' in vain for a saviour to rise from these streets
          E                   C#m
Well now I'm no hero, that's understood
           E                              A                      E
All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
      A                  B7
Hey, what else can we do now
        E                        A                 E
Except roll down the window and let the wind roll back your hair
           E                          B                   A
Well, the night's bustin' open these two lanes'll take us anywhere
       A                          B
We got one last chance to make it real
    F                        A
To trade in these wings on some wheels
A              F                      B
Climbin' back everyone's waitin' down on the tracks
E              C#m
Whoa, oh, come take my hand
E                    A                       E
Right now, tonight to case the promised land
        G#m              A                B7              E
Whoa-oa-oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
Lyin' out there like a killer in the sun
E                    A
I know it's late we can make it if we run
E          G#m                   A           B7            E
Whoa-oa-oa-oh Thunder Road, sit tight, take hold, Thunder Road
        A                     B                          E 
Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
        C#m                                        A    B
And my car's out back if you're ready to take the long walk
           A                       B
From your front porch to my front seat
           G#m                     C#m
The door's open but the ride ain't free
And I know you're lonely for words and I ain't spoke
Tonight will be free, all our promises will be broke
                E                    A                 E
And there were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
                 E                       B                  A
They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
      A                                 B
They scream your name at night in the street
                 E                          A
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines rolling on
         F#m                       B           A
When you get to the porch they're gone on the road
So Mary climb in
        A                        B                     E
It's a town full of losers, I'm pulling out of here to win

Sax solo - E B E A E B A B
