Better Days (Springsteen Bruce)

E 1. Well my soul checked out missing as I sat listening C#m To the hours and minutes ticking away F#m Yeah just sitting around waiting for my life to begin A While it was all just slipping away I'm tired of waiting for tomorrow to come Or that train to come roaring round the bend I got a new suit of clothes a pretty red rose And a woman I can call my friend E R: These are better days baby A Yeah there's better days shining through E These are better days baby F#m A E Better days with a girl like you 2. Well I took a piss at fortune's sweet kiss It's like eating caviar and dirt It's sad funny ending to find yourself pretending A rich man in a poor man's shirt Now my ass was dragging when from a passing gypsy wagon Your heart like a diamond shone Tonight I'm laying in your arms carving lucky charms Out of these hard luck bones R1: These are better days baby These are better days it's true These are better days There's better days shining through 3. Now a life of leisure and a pirate's treasure Don't make much for tragedy But it's a sad man my friend who's living in his own skin And can't stand the company Every fool's got a reason for feeling sorry for himself And turning his heart to stone Tonight this fool's halfway to heaven and just a mile outta hell And I feel like I'm coming home R: These are better days baby... R1: These are better days baby...
