Born To Run Chords

Song Born To Run
Artist Bruce Springsteen
Chords G, Cadd9, D, Am, C, Dm, F





In the (G)day we sweat it out in the streets of a (Cadd9)runaway American (D)dream

At (G)night we ride through mansions of glory in (Cadd9)suicide (D)machines

(Cadd9)Sprung from cages out on (G)highway 9,  Chrome (Cadd9)wheeled, fuel injected

and (D)steppin’ out over the (Cadd9)line. Baby this town rips the (G)bones from your back

It’s a (Am)death trap, it’s a (D)suicide rap, we gotta (C)get out while we’re (Am)young



`Cause (C)tramps like us, (D)baby we were born to (G)run(Cadd9)(D)



Hey Wendy (G)let me in I wanna be your friend I want to (Cadd9)guard your dreams and (D)visions

Just (G)wrap your legs ’round these velvet rims

and strap your (Cadd9)hands across my (D)engines, and (Cadd9)together we could (G)break this trap

We’ll (Cadd9)run till we drop, (D)baby we’ll never go (Cadd9)back

Walk with me (G)out on the wire? Girl, I’m (Am)just a scared and (D)lonely rider

But I (C)gotta know how it (Am)feels



I (C)want to know if love is wild, I (D)want to know if love is (G)real(Cadd9)(D)



(Dm)Beyond the Palace, hemi-powered drones (F)scream down the boulevard

The (C)girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors, and the (Am)boys try to look so (D)hard

(Dm)The amusement park rises bold and stark as Kids are (F)huddled on the beach in a mist

I wanna (C)die with you Wendy on the streets tonight in an (Am)everlasting (D)kiss



Well, the (G)highway’s jammed with broken heroes on a (Cadd9)last chance power (D)drive

Every(G)body’s out on the run tonight, but there’s (Cadd9)no place left to (D)hide

(Cadd9)Together Wendy we’ll live (G)with the sadness

(Cadd9)I’ll love you with all the (D)madness in my (Cadd9)soul

Someday (G)girl I don’t know when, we’re gonna (Am)get to that place

Where we really want to (D)go  and we’ll (C)walk in the (Am)sun



But till then (C)tramps like us, (D)baby we were born to (G)run
