    Bruce Springsteen



    A  D  (x4)


    Verse 1:

    A                                   D

    I had a friend was a big baseball player

    A                      D

    back in high school

    A                              D

    He could throw that speedball by you

    A                             D

    Make you look like a fool boy


    Saw him the other night at this roadside bar


    I was walking in and he was walking out


    We went back inside sat down, had a few drinks,

          D                             E

    but all he kept talking about was



    A                               D

    Glory days well they'll pass you by

    A                                      D

    Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye

    A                           E     A    D

    Glory days, glory days


    Verse 2:

    A                                D

    There's a girl that lives up the block

                     A                                              D

    Back in school she could turn all the boys' heads

             A                                   D

    Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by and have a few drinks

    A                                  D

    after she put her kids to bed


    Her and her husband Bobby well they split up


    I guess it's two years gone by now


    We just sit around talking about the old times,

                                              D                                              E

    she says when she feels like crying she starts laughing thinking about




    E (x2)  D   E


    (Palm Mute)

    A                                        D

    Think I'm going down to the well tonight

                             A                        D

    and I'm going to drink till I get my fill

             A                                                     D

    And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it

    A                   D

    but I probably will


    Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture


    a little of the glory of,


    but time slips away and leaves you with nothing mister but

    D                   E

    boring stories of
