Bruce Springsteen's Acoustic rendition of thunder road.

  G                        C              G
    The screen door slams,    Christie's dress waves
           F                  C                      G
    Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
         C                      G      
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely, 
                F                      C
    hey that's me babe and I want you only
                  G             C                       G
    Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again tonight

                                 C                       G
    Don't run back inside, baby, you know just what I'm here for
    So you're scared and you're thinking that
                         C               G
    Maybe we ain't that young any more
                   C             G
    Woman, there's magic in the night
                F                         C
    You ain't a beauty but hey you're all right
    Oh and that's alright with me

            G                        C/G D
    You can hide beneath your covers and study your pain,
         G                               C
    Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
   G                  D                     C                         D
    Waste your summer praying in vain for a savior to rise from these streets
             G          C/G     D
    Well I aint no hero that's understood
             G                              C
    All the redemption I can offer babe is beneath this old hood
   G                                D        
    With one last chance to make it good somehow
        C                     D 
    hey what else can you do now except
    G                       C                  G
    Roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
                                           D                      C
    Well the night's busting open and these two lanes can take us anywhere
    We got one last chance to make it real
        G                        C
    to trade in these wings for some wheels
   G                                    D
    Climb in back, it's waiting down on the tracks

           G                   C/G  D
    Well I tried hard Christie to  understand 
         G                          C
    I'm ridin' out tonight to case the promised land
    G                           D
    Babe, if you're born with nothin' in your hands 
    C                   D
    Hey It's your only chance   

              G               C/G     D
    Well It's lyin' out there like a killer in the sun      
      G                               C
    Yeah I know it's late, but we can make it if we run 
   G         D                  C
    Oh I wish you could come, so leave what you've lost
                 D               G
    Leave what's grown old, on thunder road
           Em                             C                      
    Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk    
           G                                      D
    And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
          C                       D
    From your front porch to my front seat
               G                       C       D
    Hey door's open but the ride ain't free

                     G                        C            G
    Well there were ghosts in the eyes of the boys you sent away
    They haunt this dirty beach road in the skeleton remains of
    burned-out Chevrolets
    They scream to you at night from the street
                    F                           C
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
               G      G/C         D                     
    And in the lonely cool before dawn
                       G    G/C              D
    From your room you hear their engines roar on
                 G                        C                 D           
    But when you get to the porch, they're gone lost in the wind 
    so Christie climb in
           C                       D                       G
    It's a town full of losers I'm pulling out of here to win

It definitely has errors, but it isn't terrible.
