DARKNESS AT THE EDGE OF TOWN

Bruce Springsteen


Well they're [G] still racing out at the [C] Trestles
But that [G] blood it never burned in her [C] veins
Now I [G] hear she's got a house up in [C] Fairview
And a [G] style she's trying to [C] maintain
Well [G] if she [C] wants to [G] see me [Em]
You can [G] tell her that I'm easily [C] found
Tell her [G] there's a [C] spot out `neath [G] Abram's [Em] Bridge
Tell her [D] there's a darkness on the [Dm7] edge of [C] town
[D] There's a darkness on the [C] edge [G] of [C] town

[G] Everybody's got a [C] secret Sonny
[G] Something that they just can't [C] face
Some folks [G] spend their whole lives trying to [C] keep it
They carry it [G] with them every step that they [C] take
Till [G] some day [C] they just [G] cut it [Em] loose,
Cut it [G] loose or let it drag `em [C] down
Where no one [G] asks any [C] questions Or looks too [G] long in your [Em] face
[D] In the darkness on the [Dm7] edge of [C] town
[D] There's a darkness on the [C] edge [G] of [C] town

[G] Some folks are born into a [C] good life
Other folks [G] get it anyway any-[C]-how
I [G] lost my money and I [C] lost my wife
Them [G] things don't seem to matter much to me [C] now
Tonight I'll [G] be on that [C] hill `cause [G] I can't [Em] stop
I'll [G] be on that hill with every-[C]-thing I got
[G] Lives on the [C] line where dreams are [G] found and [Em] lost
I'll be [G] there on [C] time and I'll [G] pay the [Em] cost
For [D] wanting things that can [Dm7] only be [C] found
[D] In the darkness on the [C] edge [G] of [C] town
