Stolen Car - Bruce Springsteen

  G             C         G
I met a little girl and I settled down
                  C          G
In a little house out on the edge of town
        C                      G
We got married, and swore we'd never part
                C                           G
Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart

G        C                   G
First I thought it was just restlessness
                             C          G
That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep
                   C        G
In the end it was something more I guess
              C                 G
That tore us apart and made us weep

And I'm driving a stolen car
Down on Eldridge Avenue
Each night I wait to get caught
But I never do

     G               C                G
She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote
                   C         G
When our love was young and bold
          C                   G
She said last night she read those letters
                   C                     G
And they made her feel one hundred years old

And I'm driving a stolen car
On a pitch black night
         C                       G
And I'm telling myself I'm gonna be alright
        C                  G
But I ride by night and I travel in fear
               C                G
That in this darkness I will disappear

| C | G | (repeat to fade out)
