Bruce Springsteen - Im On Fire chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
The easiest way, in my opinion, to play this is to drop your tuning down a half 
step so you can bar all of the chords. great cross-picking exercise.

Intro:

use the same picking pattern throughout the whole song (A= root string of chord, 
i.e. E (6) or [ch]C#min[/ch] (5). 
A B A C D C B C

so for E, you're picking in this order 6 5 6 4 3 4 5 4 (low e string = 6)

listen to the song and you will hear it instantly

INTRO (play through twice)

E E E E

[ch]C#min[/ch] [ch]C#min[/ch] [ch]C#min[/ch] [ch]C#min[/ch]

A                                               A
Sometimes it's like someone took a knife, baby, edgy and dull


           [ch]C#min[/ch]                      [ch]C#min[/ch]              [ch]C#min[/ch]     [ch]C#min[/ch]   
and cut a six-inch valley through the middle of my skull


   E                          E                
at night, I wake up with the sheets soaking wet and 

  E                                 E
a freight train running through the middle of my head 

    A      A              [ch]C#min[/ch]       [ch]C#min[/ch]
and you...... can cool my desire.......

A                B            E
whoa-    oh     -oh    I'm on fire

A                B            E
whoa-    oh     -oh    I'm on fire
