This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.
"RACING IN THE STREET" by Bruce Springsteen From his 1978 album Darkness on the Edge of Town Written be Bruce Springsteen www.brucespringsteen.net Transcribed by T-rev www.t-rev.net Capo 3 D D4 D Bm Bm6 Bm A4 A4,6 A4,7 A4,6 Gadd9 D I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396 G Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor /F# Em She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot G Outside the Seven-Eleven store Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch And he rides with me from town to town We only run for the money got no strings attached We shut 'em up and then we shut 'em down Tonight, tonight the strip's just right I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat Summer's here and the time is right For racing in the street We take all the action we can meet And we cover all the north east state When the strip shuts down we run 'em in the street From the fire roads to the interstate Some guys they just give up living And start dying little by little, piece by piece Some guys come home from work and wash up And go racing in the street Tonight, tonight the strip's just right I wanna blow 'em all out of their seats We're calling out around the world We're going racing in the street C C4 C Am Am6 Am G4 G4,6 G4,7 G4,6 Fadd9 C C4 C Am Am6 Am D D7 G D I met her on the strip three years ago In a Camaro with this dude from L.A. I blew that Camaro off my back And drove that little girl away But now there's wrinkles around my baby's eyes And she cries herself to sleep at night When I come home the house is dark She sighs "Baby did you make it all right" She sits on the porch of her daddy's house But all her pretty dreams are torn She stares off alone into the night With the eyes of one who hates for just being born For all the shut down strangers and hot rod angels Rumbling through this promised land Tonight my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea And wash these sins off our hands Tonight tonight the highway's bright Out of our way mister you best keep 'Cause summer's here and the time is right For racing in the street Transcribed 2020-11-21 by T-rev More tab available at www.t-rev.net xx0232 D xx0233 D4 x24432 Bm x24433 Bm6 x02230 A4 x02232 A4,6 x02233 A4,7 32023x Gadd9 022030 Em7 x32010 C x32011 C4 x02210 Am x02211 Am6 32001x G4 320010 G4,6 320011 G4,7 13301x Fadd9
