Hi folks!

I've worked a little Born to Run (acoustic), I didn't like very much some
versions I got. Even I'm no glad of this one, but I think it's a little bit
more accurate (lyrics, placing chords...). So here you have. I'd thank those people who could got the last harmonica notes (every day I play them, they sound
different. Please, e-mail comments, better versions at

Enjoy it!!!

                                    ((c) 1975, by Bruce Springsteen)

             G C D G C D (Guitar chords)

   Harmonica:   C,B,C,B,C,C A,G,A,G,G,C B,C,B,C,C

        G                                         C             D
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream
     G                                         C          D
At night we ride through mansions of glory in suicide machines
  C                   G  
Sprung from cages on Highway 9 
          C                         D                    C
chrome wheeled, fuel injected and, steppin' out over the line
Baby this town rips the bones from your back, 
         Am                D
it's a death trap, it's a suicide rap.
            C                 Am       (A2 Am A2)
We gotta get out while I'm still young
         C             D                   G
'Cause tramps like us baby we were born to run.

G    C    D

               (G->C harmonica)

Hey Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend,
        C                     D
I wanna guard your dreams and visions.
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims,
      C                      D
Strap your hands across my engines.
      C               G
And Together we could break this trap,
       C                    D                   C
We'll run till we drop and, baby we'll never go back.
Walk with me out on the wire?
         Am                   D
Girl, I'm just a scared and a lonely rider,
      C                 Am         (A2 Am A2)
But I gotta know how it feels,
I want to know if love is wild, baby,
    D                     G
I want to know if love is real.

G  C  D  

               (G->C harmonica)

  Dm                                    F
Beyond the palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
The girls comb their hair in rear-view mirrors
         Am                D
and the boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight
     Am           D
In a everlasting kiss

Well, The highways jammed with broken heroes
      C                    D
On a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight
            C                D
But there's no place left to hide
   C                     G
Together, Wendy, we can live with the sadness
C                          D              C
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
         G                                   Am
Someday girl, I don't know when, we're gonna get to that place
Where we really wanna go
 C                    Am   (A2 Am A2)
And we'll walk in the sun
Till then tramps like us
D                   G
Baby we were Born To Run.

(Bruce)Oooohhh....  x3
(Public)..........  x3   (Bruce) ooOOOooohh...
