INTRO: C C Sparks fly on E Street when the boy prophets walk it handsome and hot All the little girls' souls grow weak when the manchild gives them a double shot F The schoolboy pops pull out all the stops on a Friday night C The teenage tramps in skin tight pants do the E Street dance and everything's alright G Them kids down there either dancing or hooked up in a scuffle Am F Dressed in snake skin suits packed with Detroit muscle G# G C They're doing the E Street Shuffle C Now those E Street brats in twilight dual flashlight phantoms in full star stream Down fire trails on silver nights with blonde girls pledged sweet sixteen F The newsboys say the heat's been bad since Power Thirteen gave a trooper all he had in a summer scuffle C And Power's girl, Little Angel, been on the corner keeping those crazy boys out of trouble G Little Angel steps the shuffle like she ain't got no brains Am F She's deaf in combat down on Lover's Lane G# G C She drives all them local boys insane, yes she does Am G Am G Am Little Angel says oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh Dm Em Am Everybody form a line G Am G Am Dm Em Am E7#9 Dm G Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh everybody form a line C Sparks fly on E Street when the boy prophets walk it handsome and hot All them little girls' souls grow weak when the manchild gives them a double shot F Little Angel hangs out at Easy Joe's it's a club where all the riot squad Goes when they're cashing in for a cheap hustle C But them boys are still on the corner loose and doing that lazy E Street Shuffle G Am As them sweet summer nights turn into summer dreams Little Angel picks up F G# G C Power and he slips on his jeans as they move on out down to the scene, all the kids are dancing C Bb F Ab GUITAR: Bbm7 Ebm7 Bbm7 Ebm7 Bbm7 Ebm7 Bbm7 OUTRO: Bbm7 Ebm7...repeat until fade ----------------------------------------- INTRO: This transcription is only basic because it's played with much funkiness and scratching of muted strings...
