The Price You Pay (Springsteen Bruce)

G C 1. You make up your mind, you choose the chance you take G D You ride to where the highway ends, and the desert breaks G C Out on to an open road, you ride until the day G D C You learn to sleep at night, with the price you pay 2. Now with their hands held high, they reached out for the open skies And in on last breath they built the roads they’d ride to their death Driving on through the night, unable to break away From the restless pull, of the price you pay G C R: Oh, the price you pay, oh, the price you pay G D C Now you can't walk away, from the price you pay 3. Now they'd come so far, and they'd waited so long Just to end up caught in a dream, where everything goes wrong Where the dark of night, holds back the light of the day And you've gotta stand and fight, for the price you pay R: Oh, the price you pay... 4. Little girl down on the strand, with that pretty little baby in your hands Do you remember, the story of the promised land How he crossed the desert sands, and could not enter the chosen land On the banks of the river he stayed, to face the price you pay 5. So let the game start, you better run you little wild heart You can run through all the nights, and all the days But just across the county line, a stranger passing through put up a sign G D A7 C That counts the men fallen away, to the price you pay, G D C And girl before the end of the day, I’m gonna tear it down and throw it away
