G Em 3x

G Em 4x

    G                            Em
One soft infested summer, me and Terry became friends
          G                               Em
Trying in vain to breathe the fire we was born in
         G                             Em
Catching rides to the outskirts, tying faith between our teeth
                 D                                  C
Sleeping in that old abandoned beach house, getting wasted in the heat, yeh

G             C
Hiding on the backstreets
G             C
Hiding on the backstreets
       G                Am            G   Em
With a love so hard and filled with defeat
                C                          G
Running for our lives at night on them backstreets

G Em 2x

     G                          Em
Slow dancing in the dark on the beach at Stockton's Wing
      G                                      Em
Where desperate lovers park, we sat with the last of the Duke Street Kings
D                    C 
Huddled in our cars, waiting for the bells that ring
       Am                                  C             D
In the deep heart of the night they set us loose of everything

      G              C
To go running on the backstreets
G              C
Running on the backstreets
           G          Am      G   Em
Terry, you swore we'd live forever
C                                G
Taking it on them backstreets together

G Em 2x
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bruce_springsteen/backstreets_crd.html ]
A                       F#m
Endless juke joints and Valentino drag
      A                                    F#m
Where dancers scraped the tears up off the street, dressed down in rags
       A                             F#m  
Running into the darkness, some hurt bad, some really dying
   E                                            D
At night sometimes it seemed you could hear the whole damn city crying
A                                                    E
Blame it on the lies that killed us, blame it on the truth that ran us down
        A                                   D
You can blame it all on me, Terry, it don't matter to me now
         D                                    E                      
When the breakdown hit at midnight, there was nothing to say
      A                E                        F#m  
But I hated him, and I hated you when you went away

B7 D  B7 D7 D
Wa ah Wa Ah

G Em 4x

G                                       Em       
Laying here in the dark, you're like an angel on my chest
      G                             Em
Just another tramp of hearts crying tears of faithlessness
  D                            C
Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see
          Am                               C                 D
Trying to learn to walk like the heroes we thought we had to be
    Em                                 Bm
And after all this time, to find we're just like all the rest
         C               C6           D
Stranded in the park and forced to confess

   G             C
To hiding on the backstreets
G             C
Hiding on the backstreets
         G        Am   G      Em
Where we swore forever friends
       C                     G
On the backstreets until the end

G Em 2x

              G
Hiding on the backstreets
              Em
Hiding on the backstreets
              G
Hiding on the backstreets
              Em
Hiding on the backstreets . . .
              C6
Hiding on the backstreets
              Am
Hiding on the backstreets

              G
Hiding on the backstreets
              C
Hiding on the backstreets
              G
Hiding on the backstreets
              C
Hiding on the backstreets . . .
