Shut Out The Light - Bruce Springsteen

| E | E

                                   A                     E
The runway rushed up at him, as he felt the wheels touch down
                                         A
He stood out on the blacktop, and took a taxi into town
   E                                     A               E
He got out down on Main Street, and went into a local bar
                       B             A
Bought a drink and found a seat in a corner in the dark

    E                                   A                   E
She called up her mama to make sure the kids were outa' the house

She checked herself out in the dining room mirror 
             B
And undid an extra button on her blouse
   E                                  A             E
He felt her lyin' next to him and the clock said 4 am
                       B                              E
He was starin' at the ceilin' he couldn't move his hands

   A              E                  A                      E
Oh mama, mama, mama come quick, I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
          A                     E
Trow your arms around me in the cold dark night
   B                  E       
Hey now mama don't shut out the light
          A                         E
Don't you shut out the light, don't shut out the light
          A                         B             E
Don't you shut out the light, don't shut out the light

                                                       A            E
Well on his porch they stretched a banner, that said Johnny Welcome Home
                                                B
Bobby pulled his Ford outa' the garage and they polished up the chrome
      E                                 A                         E
His mama said Johnny oh Johnny, I'm so glad to have you back with me
                               B                                     E
His pa said he was sure they'd give him his job back down at the factory 

   A              E                  A                      E
Oh mama, mama, mama come quick, I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
          A                     E
Trow your arms around me in the cold dark night
   B                  E       
Hey now mama don't shut out the light
          A                         E
Don't you shut out the light, don't shut out the light
          A                         B             E
Don't you shut out the light, don't shut out the light

                              A                  E
Well deep in a dark forest, a forest filled with rain
                                             B
Beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there's a river without a name
       E                         A               E
In the cold black water, where Johnson Linnier stands
                      B                                          E
He stares across the lights of the city and dreams of where he's been

   A              E                  A                      E
Oh mama, mama, mama come quick, I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
          A                     E
Trow your arms around me in the cold dark night
   B                  E       
Hey now mama don't shut out the light
          A                         E
Don't you shut out the light, don't shut out the light
          A                         E
Don't you shut out the light, don't shut out the light
          A                         B             E
Don't you shut out the light, don't shut out the light
