Jungleland
Bruce Springstee
Standard Tuning EADGBe
Key
22(24)=bend note up to the 24th fret or to high E

This is the violin intro to Jungleland, I have put no hammerons or pull offs in so just
very expressive when you play it.

Piano Chords :
C G F C G F C
The rangers had a homecoming in Harlem late last night
And the Magic Rat drove his sleek machine over the Jersey state line
Barefoot girl sitting on the hood of a Dodge
Drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain
D E F G
The Rat pulls into town rolls up his pants
D E F C
Together they take a stab at romance and disappear down Flamingo Lane
Well the Maximum Lawman run down Flamingo chasing the Rat and the barefootgirl
And the kids round here look just like shadows always quiet, holding hands
From the churches to the jails tonight all is silence in the world
D E F G D E F G C
As we take our stand down in Jun-gle-land

C G F C G F C
The midnight gang's assembled and picked a rendezvous for the night
They'll meet `neath that giant Exxon sign that brings this fair city light
Man there's an opera out on the Turnpike
There's a ballet being fought out in the alley
Until the local cops, Cherry Tops, rips this holy night

D E F G
The street's alive as secret debts are paid
D E F G
Contacts made, they vanish unseen
D E F G
Kids flash guitars just like switch-blades
D E F G
hustling for the record machine

Bb D C C
The hungry and the hunted explode into rock'n'roll bands
Bb (Bb)
That face off against each other out in the street down in

D F C G
In the parking lot the visionaries dress in the latest rage
D F F G G
Inside the backstreet girls are dancing to the records that the D.J. plays
D F
Lonely-hearted lovers struggle in dark corners
C G C F G G
Desperate as the night moves on, just a look and a whisper, and they're gone

Sax solo

Beneath the city two hearts beat
Soul engines running through a night so tender in a bedroom locked
In whispers of soft refusal and then surrender in the tunnels uptown
The Rat's own dream guns him down as shots echo down them hallways in thenight
No one watches when the ambulance pulls away
Or as the girl shuts out the bedroom light

D C
Outside the street's on fire in a real death waltz
D C D
Between flesh and what's fantasy and the poets down here
F G D
Don't write nothing at all, they just stand back and let it all be
Bb
And in the quick of the night they reach for their moment
D Bb
And try to make an honest stand but they wind up wounded, not even dead
C…
Tonight in Jungleland
END
Sorry there's no solo, but that takes to long to tab.

They [em]bring you up to [G]do [C]like your daddy [G]done
Me and [C]Mary we met in high school
When [G]she was just [D]seven[em]teen
We'd [am]drive out of this valley down to [G]where the fields were [C]green

We'd go [em]down to the [C]river
And [D]into the river we'd [G]dive
Oh [em]down to the [C]river we'd [D]ri[C]de
Then [em]I got Mary [G]pregnant
And [D]man that was all she [C]wrote
And [em]for my nineteenth [G]birthday I got a union [C]card and a wedding [G]coat
We [C]went down to the courthouse
And the [G]judge put it [D]all to [em]rest
No [am]wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle
No [G]flowers, no wedding [C]dress
That night we went [em]down to the [C]river
And [D]into the river we'd [G]dive
Oh [em]down to the [C]river we did [D]ri[C]de

And pull her [C]close just to feel each [G]breath she'd take
Now those [C]memories come back to haunt me
They [G]haunt me [D]like a [em]curse
Is a [am]dream a lie if it don't come true

G C G-D-G
Screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
Bm C
Like a vision dancing across the porch as the radio plays
D G C
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely, hey that's me and I want you only
G D
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside, honey, you know just what I'm here for
And you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that
young any more
show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty but eh, you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me
G D G C
Ohh come take my hand We're ridin out tonight to case the Promised Land
G Bm C D
Oh Thunder Road, Oh Thunder road, Oh Thunder Road
G Bm
Lyin' out there like a killer in the dark
G C
Hey I know it's late, we can make it if we run
G Bm C D G
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight, take hold, Thunder Road
C D G
So I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
Em C D
And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
C D
From your front porch to my front seat
Bm Em
Door's open but the ride ain't free
C C- Am7 Am
Well I know you've been waiting for words that I ain't spoken
D D+ D- D7
Well tonight we'll be free--all the promises will be broken
(if anyone knows better chords to that last line, let me know!!!)
There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
They drive this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of
burned-out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn you hear their engines roaring on
Until you get to the porch, they're gone on the wind so Mary climb in
It's a town full of losers and we're pulling out of here to win


OK, some wierd chords here.

Subject: CRD: Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen

This file was originally posted by Teri Tracey (teri@sdd.hp.com); she wrote out
the lyrics and most of the chords. I have inserted the missing verse, changed it
into the correct key, and changed a few chords.

Capo 3: Play in D; actually in F.
