Select your instrument: Instrument

Capo III

D Bm D G D F#m G A *

D G D
The screen door slams, Mary’s dress sways
A G
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
A
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
D G
Hey that’s me and I want you only
D A
Don’t turn me home again, I just can’t face myself alone again

D G D G D
Don’t run back inside, darling you know just what I’m here for

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

D Bm
You can hide neath your covers and study your pain
D G
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
D F#m
Waste your summer praying in vain
G A
For a saviour to rise from these streets
D Bm
Well now I’m no hero, that’s understood
D G
All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
D F#m
With a chance to make it good somehow
G A
Hey what else can we do now?

D G D G D
Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night’s busting open
F#m G
These two lanes will take us anywhere
A
We got one last chance to make it real
D G
To trade in these wings on some wheels
D A
Climb in back heaven’s waiting down on the tracks

D Bm
Oh oh come take my hand
D G
We re riding out tonight to case the promised land
D F#m G A
Oh oh oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road,
D Bm
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
D G
Hey I know it’s late we can make it if we run
D F#m G A D
Oh oh oh oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold, Thunder Road

D G A D
Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
Bm G A
And my car’s out back if you’re ready to take that long walk
G A
From your front porch to my front seat
F#m Bm
The door’s open but the ride it ain’t free
G Em
And I know you’re lonely for words that I ain’t spoken
A
But tonight we’ll be free, all the promises’ll be broken
D G D G D
There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
F#m G
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
A
They scream your name at night in the street
D G
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet and in the
F#m G
Lonely cool before dawn you hear their engines roaring on but when you
Em A G Em
Get to the porch they’re gone on the wind so Mary climb in
G A D
It’s a town full of losers and I’m pulling out of here to win

D A D G
D A G A 5x
