E A
The screen door slams
E
Mary's dress waves
B
Like a vision she dances across the porch
A
As the radio plays
B
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
E A
Hey that's me and I want you only

Don't turn me home again
E B
I just can't face myself alone again
E
Don't run back inside
A E
darling you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking
B A
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
B
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
E A
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
E B
Oh and that's alright with me



E
You can hide 'neath your covers
B
And study your pain
E
Make crosses from your lovers
A
Throw roses in the rain
E B
Waste your summer praying in vain
A B
For a savior to rise from these streets
E
Well now I'm no hero
A
That's understood
E
All the redemption I can offer, girl
A
Is beneath this dirty hood
E B
With a chance to make it good somehow
A B
Hey what else can we do now
E
Except roll down the window
A E
And let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night's busting open
B A
These two lanes will take us anywhere
B
We got one last chance to make it real
E A
To trade in these wings on some wheels
E
Climb in back
B
Heaven's waiting on down the tracks


E A
Oh oh come take my hand
A E
Riding out tonight to case the promised land

Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
B
oh Thunder Road

Lying out there like a killer in the sun

Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
E A B
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight, take hold
E
Thunder Road


A
Well I got this guitar
B E
And I learned how to make it talk
A
And my car's out back
A B
If you're ready to take that long walk
A B
From your front porch to my front seat
G#m A
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
A
And I know you're lonely

For words that I ain't spoken
B
But tonight we'll be free

All the promises'll be broken
E
There were ghosts in the eyes
A R
Of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
B A
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
B
They scream your name at night in the street
E A
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
A
And in the lonely cool before dawn
A
You hear their engines roaring on
Dm B
But when you get to the porch they're gone
B Dm
On the wind, so Mary climb in
A
It's a town full of losers
B E
And I'm pulling out of here to win.

Rythym:
B
Born down in a dead man's town

The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
E
End up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now
B
Got in a little hometown jam


So they put a rifle in my hand
E
Sent me off to a foreign land


To go and kill the yellow man

B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now


B
Come back home to the refinery


Hiring man said "Son if it was up to me"
E
Went down to see my V.A. man
| B | B | B | B | E | E | E | E |
He said "Son, don't you understand"
B
I had a brother at Khe Sah
Fighting off the Viet Cong
E
They're still there, he's all gone


B
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
| E | E | E | E |
I got a picture of him in her arms now


B
Down in the shadow of the penitentiary


Out by the gas fires of the refinery
E
I'm ten years burning down the road


Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E B
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. now
Born in the U.S.A., Born in the U.S.A.
E
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the

Dynamite's in the Belfry baby playing with the bats
Little gun's downtown in front of Woolworths trying out his attitude on the cats
Papa's on the corner - waiting for the bus
Mommas home in the window - waiting up for us

She'll be there in that chair 'till they wrestle her upstairs cause you know we
ain't gonna come
I ain't here on business baby I'm only here for fun
And Rosie you're the one

[Chorus:]
F Bb F C F Bb
Rosalita jump a little lighter - Senorita come sit by my fire
I just wanna be your lover ain't no lie - Rosalita you're my strong desire

Jack-the -rabbit and weak-knee'd-Willie you know they're gonna be there
Sloppy Sue and big-bones-Billy they'll be comin' up for air
They're gonna play some pool - skip some school
act real cool - stay out all night - it's gonna be alright

(C) Gm C Csus4 C Csus2 C
So Rosie come out tonight - oh baby come out tonight

Windows are for cheaters - chimneys for the poor
Closets are for hangers - winners use the door
So use it Rosie - that's what it's there for

(CHORUS)

C Gm
And I know your momma she don't like me 'cuz I play in a rock and roll band
Dm Am
And I know your daddy he don't dig me but he never did understand
F Gm
Your poppa lowered the boom - he locked you in your room - I'm comin' to lend a
hand
Dm Am
I'm coming to liberate you - confiscate you - I want to be your man
Bb C F Am
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny
Dm Bb
But now you're sad - your mommas mad and your

Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money (oh your)
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money
Gm Eb Bb
Well tell him this is his last chance - to get his daughter in a fine romance
C11 C C11 C C11 C C11 C (quickly)
Because the record company Rosie - just gave me a big advance

And my tires were slashed and I almost crashed but the lord had mercy
My machine she's dud stuck in the mud somewhere in the swamps of Jersey
Hold on tight stay up all night Rosie I'm coming on strong
By the time we meet the morning light I will hold you in my arms

I know a pretty little place in Southern California down San Diego way
There's a little cafe - where they play guitar all night and all day
You can hear 'em in the back room strummin'
So hold tight baby 'cuz don't you know daddy's coming

Cadillac Ranch (from the album "The River")

Capo on 3rd fret (Medium rock and roll)

Well there she sits buddy just a-gleaming in the sun right
G

There to greet a working man when his day is done
C G
I'm gonna pack my pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt

I'm gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch
C D G

Eldorado fins, whitewalls and skirts
Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth
Well buddy when I die throw my body in the back
And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac
Cadillac, Cadillac
G
Long and dark shiny and black
C G

Open up your engines let `em roar

Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur
C D G
James Dean in that Mercury `49
Junior Johnson runnin' through the woods of Caroline
Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans Am
All gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac...

Hey little girlie in the blue jeans so tight
Drivin' alone through the Wisconsin night
You're my last love you're my last chance
Don't let `em take me to the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac...

In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat

With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round

With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground

She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong if you play that song with the funky break

And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside

And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride

Eb Bb Eb Bb
Can't see nothin' in front of me Can't see nothin' coming up behind
I make my way through this darkness I can't feel nothing but this chain that binds me
Lost track of how far I've gone How far I've gone, how high I've climbed
On my back's a sixty pound stone On my shoulder a half mile of line

Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight

Left the house this morning Bells ringing filled the air
Wearin' the cross of my calling On wheels of fire I come rollin' down here

Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight

Sky of blackness and sorrow (a dream of life)
Sky of love, sky of tears (a dream of life)
Sky of glory and sadness (a dream of life)
Sky of mercy, sky of fear (a dream of life)

Your burnin' wind fills my arms tonight
Sky of longing and emptiness (a dream of life)
Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life

Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight

Spread out now Rosie doctor come cut loose her momma's reins
You know playing blind man's bluff is a little baby's game
You pick up little dynamite - I'll pick up little gun
Together we're gonna go out tonight and make that highway run

You don't have to call me lieutenant Rosie and I don't wanna be your son
