Streets Of Philadelphia chords
Bruce Springsteen

F Am 2x *

I was bruised and battered,

and I couldn't tell what I felt
I was unrecognizable, to myself
Saw my reflection in a window,

I didn't know my own face
Oh, brother are you gonna leave me wasting away,
                       Bb     Bb F C  Bb F C
on the streets of Philadelphia?

I walked the avenue till my legs felt like stone,
I heard the voices of friends vanished and gone
At night I could hear the blood in my veins,
just as black and whispering as the rain,
                       Bb     Bb F C  Bb F C 
on the streets of Philadelphia

Bb                   Dm
Ain't no angel gonna greet me;
Bb                     F
it's just you and I my friend
Am                   Bb
And my clothes don't fit me no more;
I walked a thousand miles just to slip this skin

The night has fallen, I'm lying awake,
I can feel myself fading away
So receive me brother with your faithless kiss,
or will we leave each other alone like this,
                       Bb    Bb F C  Bb F C 
on the streets of Philadelphia

Bb F C  Bb F C
