   E                A
The screen door slams
Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
           E                 A
Hey that's me and I want you only

Don't turn me home again
  E                      B
I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside
        A                      E
darling you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking
     B                   A           
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
	    E                        A
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
       E                   B
Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide 'neath your covers
And study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers
Throw roses in the rain
E		  B
Waste your summer praying in vain
      A    		        B
For a savior to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero
That's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl
Is beneath this dirty hood
E	 		 B
With a chance to make it good somehow
    A   		B
Hey what else can we do now
Except roll down the window
    A	              E 
And let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night's busting open
      B  	             A
These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
   E				A
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back
Heaven's waiting on down the tracks

E    	   A
Oh oh come take my hand
A		      E
Riding out tonight to case the promised land
   E		    A
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
oh Thunder Road
E		       A
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
    E		        A			E
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
  E		     A         B        
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight, take hold
Thunder Road

Well I got this guitar
      B   		     E
And I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back
			     A    B
If you're ready to take that long walk
	  A			  B
From your front porch to my front seat
           G#m 	      A
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
And I know you're lonely
For words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free

All the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes
   A		    R
Of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
       B                  A
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
		E			   A
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
	     Dm	                      B
But when you get to the porch they're gone
       B                   Dm
On the wind, so Mary climb in
It's a town full of losers
        B    		       E
And I'm pulling out of here to win.
