    My Hometown

    Bruce Springsteen

     

    Intro: / G - - - / - - - - / C - G - / D - - - /

           / D - - - / - - - - / G - D - / C - - - /

     

     

          G (2)                               C (1/2)  G (1/2)   D

    I was eight years old and running with a dime      in my    hand

              D (2)                           G (1/2)  D (1/2)   C

    Into the bus stop to pick up a paper for my        old      man

         G (2)

    I'd sit on his lap in that big old Buick and

       C (1/2)    G (1/2)      D

    steer as we drove through town

          D (2)                                  G (1/2)  D (1/2)   C

    He'd tousle my hair and he'd say son take a good     look    around

     

    Chorus:

             G (2)          C (1/2)  G (1/2)   D

    This is your hometown, your     home      town

             D (2)                                  G (1/2)  D (1/2)  C

    This is your hometown, your home town, this is your     home     town

     

    / G - - - / - - - - /

     

    G (2)                               C (1/2)  G (1/2)   D

    In '65 tension was running high at my       high    school

                 D (2)                                                                                               

    There was a lot of fights between the black and white there was

     G (1/2)  D (1/2)   C

    nothing  you could do

         G (2)                                      C (1/2)   G (1/2)   D

    Two cars at a light on a Saturday night in the back seat was a     gun

      D (2)                                     G (1/2)  D (1/2)   C

    Words were passed a shotgun blast troubled times    had       come

     

    Chorus 2:

        G (2)        C (1/2)  G (1/2)   D

    To my hometown, my       home      town

             D (2)   G (1/2)  D (1/2)   C

    My hometown,    my       home      town

     

    / G - - - / - - - - /

     

    Bridge:

         Em (2)                                G (2)

    Now Main Street's whitewashed windows and vacant stores

           Em (2)                           G (2)

    Seems like there ain't nobody wants to come down here no more

              C (2)                                   G (2)

    They're closing down the textile mill across the railroad tracks

             C (2)                               G                D

    Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back to

     

    Chorus 3:

        G (2)          C (1/2)  G (1/2)   D

    To your hometown, your     home      town,

     D (2)          G (1/2)  D (1/2)   C

    your hometown, your     home      town

     

    / G - - - / - - - - /

     

          G (2)                            C (1/2)       G (1/2)   D

    Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting   out

     D (2)                     G (1/2)  D (1/2)   C

    Packing up our bags maybe head  -  ing       south

          G (2)                     C (1/2)  G (1/2)   D

    I'm thirty-five we got a boy of our      own      now

                  D (2)

    Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said

     G (1/2)    D (1/2)    C (2)

    son take a good look around

     

           / G - - - / - - - - / C - G - / D - - - /

    This is your hometown

     

    / D - - - / - - - - / G - D - / C - - - /

    / G - - - / - - - - / C - G - / D - - - /

    / D - - - / - - - - / G - D - / C - - - /

     

    End on G
