Stolen Car (Springsteen Bruce)

G C D G C Well I found me a little girl and I settled down D G In a pretty little house, in a pretty little town C We got married and promised never to part D G Then little by little we drifted from each other's hearts Now I'm drivin' a stolen car on a pitch-black night D G And I'm doin' my best to make it through C G Well I'm just sittin' down here at the Stanton light D G I wanna get caught but I never do C At first I thought it was just restlessness D G That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep C But in the end it was something more, I guess D G That tore us apart and made us weep C G And I'm drivin' a stolen car waitin' on that little red light D G I keep tellin' myself everything's gonna be alright C G But I ride by night and I travel in fear D G That in this darkness I might just disappear D C She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote Em C D G When our love was young and we were bold Bm Em She said last night she read those letters F C G C D And they made her feel a hundred years old G C There's a river runs by that little town D G Down into the sea C It was there in the shade I lay my body down D G As she flowed on so effortlessly C Now there's a party tonight out at county line D G There'll be dancing down at Seven Trees C From these banks I can see those party lights shine D C G Maybe she's there, maybe she's looking for me C Last night I dreamed I made the call D G I swore to return and stay forevermore C Once again we stood on the wedding steps at Victory Hall D G And walked arm in arm through the chapel door C I can remember how good I felt inside D G When the preacher said "Son, you may kiss the bride" C But as I leaned over to touch her pretty lips D G I felt it all slip away through my fingertips C G And I'm drivin' a stolen car through a pitch-black night D G I keep tellin' myself everything's gonna be alright C G But I ride by night and I travel in fear D G No matter what I do or where I drive D G C D G Nobody ever sees me when I ride by
