Lost in the flood by Bruce Springsteen Em D C D G Bm The ragamuffin gunner is returning home like a hungry runaway C D G He walks through town all alone " He must be from the fort", Bm he hears the high school girls say D C Em Bm His countryside's burning with wolfman fairies dressed in drag for homicide C D G Bm They hit and run plead sanctuary,'neath a holy stone they hide C D G Bm They're breakin' beams and crosses with a spastic's reelin' perfection C D G Bm Nuns run bald though Vatican halls, pregnant,pleadin' immaculate conception D C Em Bm And everybody's wrecked on Main street from drinking unholy blood C D C D Em Sticker smiles sweet as Gunner breathes deep, his ankles caked in mud C D Em C D And I said, " Hey gunner man, that's quicksand, that's quicksand, that ain't Em C D Em C D mud. Have you thrown your senses to the war, or did you lose them in the Em Am D flood?" C D G Bm That pure American brother, dull-eyed and empty-faced C D G Bm Races Sundays in Jersey, in a Chevy stock super eight D C He rides 'er low on the hip, on the side he's got "Bound for Glory" Em Bm in red white and blue flash paint C D C D He leans on the hood telling racing stories, the kids call him Jimmy the Em Saint Em G C Well that blaze and noise boy, he's gunnin' that bitch loaded to blastin' Em Em G C Em point. He rides headfirst into a hurricane and dissapears into a point D C And there's nothin' left but some blood where the body fell, Em Bm that is, nothin' left that you could sell C D C D Em Just junk all across the horizon, a real highwayman's farewell C D Em C D Em And I said, "Hey kid, you think that's oil? Man that ain't oil, that's blood C D Em C I wonder what he was thinking when he hit that storm, or was he just D Em Am D D Am Em lost in the flood?" C D G Bm Eighth Avenue sailors in satin shirts whisper in the air C D G Bm Some storefront incarnation of Maria, she's puttin' on me the stare D C Em Bm And Bronx's best apostle stands with his hand on his own hardware C D C D Em Everything stops, you hear five quick shots, the cops come up for air Em G C Em And now the whiz-bang gang from uptown, they're shootin' up the street Em G C And that cat from the Bronx starts lettin' loose, but he gets blown right Em off his feet. D C Em Bm And some kid comes blastin' round the corner, but a cop puts him right away C D He lays on the street holding his leg, screaming something is Spanish C D Em still breathin' when I walked away C D Em C And someone said, "Hey man, did you see that? His body hit the street D Em with such a beautiful thud" C D Em C D Em I wonder what the dude was sayin' or was he just lost in the flood? C D Em C D Em Hey man did you see that? Those poor cats are sure messed up C D Em C D I wonder what they were gettin' into, or were they all just lost Em Am D D Am Em / Em Am D D Am Em /(repeat to end ) in the flood? (very cool tune for solo acoustic) the song gives me chills everytime I hear it!
