Backstreets chords *
Bruce Springsteen **

G Em 3x
D C  C D  G C  C D  G D  C D

G Em 4x

G EmOne soft infested summer, me and Terry became friends
G EmTrying in vain to breathe the fire we was born in
G EmCatching rides to the outskirts, tying faith between our teeth
D CSleeping in that old abandoned beach house, getting wasted in the heat, yeh
G CHiding on the backstreets
G CHiding on the backstreets
G Am G EmWith a love so hard and filled with defeat
C GRunning for our lives at night on them backstreets
G Em 2x
G EmSlow dancing in the dark on the beach at Stockton's Wing
G EmWhere desperate lovers park, we sat with the last of the Duke Street Kings
D C Huddled in our cars, waiting for the bells that ring
Am C DIn the deep heart of the night they set us loose of everything
G CTo go running on the backstreets
G CRunning on the backstreets
G Am G EmTerry, you swore we'd live forever
C GTaking it on them backstreets together
G Em 2x
A F#mEndless juke joints and Valentino drag
A F#mWhere dancers scraped the tears up off the street, dressed down in rags
A F#m Running into the darkness, some hurt bad, some really dying
E DAt night sometimes it seemed you could hear the whole damn city crying
A EBlame it on the lies that killed us, blame it on the truth that ran us down
A DYou can blame it all on me, Terry, it don't matter to me now
D E When the breakdown hit at midnight, there was nothing to say
A E F#m But I hated him, and I hated you when you went away
B7 D B7 D7 DWa ah Wa Ah
G Em 4x
G Em Laying here in the dark, you're like an angel on my chest
G EmJust another tramp of hearts crying tears of faithlessness
D CRemember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see
Am C DTrying to learn to walk like the heroes we thought we had to be
Em BmAnd after all this time, to find we're just like all the rest
C C6 DStranded in the park and forced to confess
G CTo hiding on the backstreets
G CHiding on the backstreets
G Am G EmWhere we swore forever friends
C GOn the backstreets until the end
G Em 2x
GHiding on the backstreets
EmHiding on the backstreets
GHiding on the backstreets
EmHiding on the backstreets . . .
C6Hiding on the backstreets
AmHiding on the backstreets
GHiding on the backstreets
CHiding on the backstreets
GHiding on the backstreets
CHiding on the backstreets . . .
