Bruce Springsteen – Moonlight Motel chords


D Bm G A

[Verse 1]

D BmThere's a place on a blank stretch of road where
G ANobody travels and nobody goes and the
D BmDeskman says these days 'round here
G AWhere two young folks could probably up and disappear into
G DRustlin' sheets, a sleepy corner room
Bm Bm/A GInto the musty smell
D BmOf wilted flowers and lazy afternoon hours
G A D Bm G AAt the Moonlight Motel
[Verse 2]
D BmNow the pool's filled with empty, eight foot deep
G AGot dandelions growin' up through the cracks in the concrete
D BmChain-link fence half-rusted away
G AGot a sign, says, "Children, be careful how you play"
G DYour lipstick taste and your whispered secret
Bm Bm/A GI promised I'd never tell
D BmA half-drunk beer and your breath in my ear
G A D Bm G AAt the Moonlight Motel
G D/F#Well then, it's bills and kids and kids and bills
Bm Bm/A GAnd the ringing of the bell
D BmAcross the valley floor through the dusty screen door
G A D Bm G AOf the Moonlight Motel
[Verse 3]
D BmLast night I dreamed of you, my lover
G AAnd the wind blew through the window and blew off the covers
D BmOf my lonely bed, I woke to something you said
G AThat it's better to have loved, yeah, it's better to have loved
G DAs I drove, there was a chill in the breeze
Bm Bm/A GAnd leaves tumbled from the sky and fell
D BmOn a road so black as I backtracked
G A D BmTo the Moonlight Motel
G DShe was boarded up and gone like an old summer song
Bm Bm/A GNothing but an empty shell
D BmI pulled in and stopped into my old spot
[Instrumental] G A Bm [Chorus]
G DI pulled a bottle of Jack out of a paper bag
Bm Bm/A GPoured one for me and one for you as well
D BmThen it was one more shot poured out onto the parking lot
G A D Bm G A DTo the Moonlight Motel
