BORN TO RUN
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

INTRO 2x: E  Esus4  E   A   B

VERSE 1:
        E                                      A                B
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream 
    E                                         A         B
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
A                        A/G#                F#m
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,  chrome wheeled, fuel injected
      [ch]C#m/G#[/ch]              E       D   
and steppin’ out over the line    Oh  
A                       A/G#
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
        F#m                [ch]C#m/G#[/ch]               E                   C#m
It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap  we gotta get out while we’re young
        A              B                    E   INTRO 2x
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

VERSE 2:

Wendy [E] let me in I wanna be your friend I wanna [A] guard your dreams and [B] visions
Just [E] wrap your legs ‘round these velvet rims and [A] strap your hands across my [B] engines    
[A] Together we could [A/G#] break this trap we’ll [F#m] run till we drop
[[ch]C#m/G#[/ch]] Baby we’ll never go [E] back    [D] Oh
Will you [A] walk with me out on the [A/G#] wire    `Cause [F#m] baby I’m just a scared and
[[ch]C#m/G#[/ch]] lonely rider but I [E] gotta know how it [C#m] feels   
I want to [A] know if love is wild babe I [B] want to know if love is [E] real INTRO 2x

BRIDGE:
   Dsus       D           Dsus   D      Gsus G              Gsus G    
Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
          Asus       A       Asus     A               Csus  C             Csus C
The girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors And the boys try to look so hard
     Dsus      D         Dsus     D                 Gsus           G            Gsus G
The amusement park rises bold and stark as kids are huddled on the beach in the mist
        Asus         A            Asus       A          Csus  C     Csus C
I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight in an everlasting kiss

VERSE 3:
  
The [E] highway’s jammed with broken heroes on a [A] last chance power [B] drive
Every[E]body’s out on the run tonight but there’s [A] no place left to [B] hide
[A] Together Wendy we can [A/G#] live with the sadness
I’ll [F#m] love you with all the [[ch]C#m/G#[/ch]] madness in my [E] soul   [D] Oh
[A] Someday girl I [A/G#] don’t know when we’re gonna [F#m] get to that place
Where we [[ch]C#m/G#[/ch]] really want to [E] go and we’ll walk in the [C#m] sun
But till then [A] tramps like us [B] baby we were born to [E] run
Ah honey [A] tramps like us [B] baby we were born to [E] run
Come on Wendy [A] tramps like us [B] baby we were born [E] to run
