Youngstown - Bruce Springsteen 
 
Dm 
Here in north east Ohio 
 
Back in eighteen-o-three 
      C 
James and Danny Heaton 
                                     Dm 
Found the ore that was linin' yellow creek 
 
They built a blast furnace 
 
Here along the shore 
C 
And they made the cannon balls 
                              Dm 
That helped the union win the war 
 
              C 
Here in Youngstown 
               Dm
Here in Youngstown 
           F                 C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down 
                      Dm 
Here darlin' in Youngstown 
 

Well my daddy worked the furnaces 

Kept 'em hotter then hell 
       C
I come home from 'Nam worked my way to scarfer 
                               Dm
A job that'd suit the devil as well 

Yeah, taconite, coke and limestone 

Fed my children and made my pay 
          C
Then smokestacks reachin' like the arms of god 
                         Dm
Into a beautiful sky of soot and clay 


              C 
Here in Youngstown 
               Dm
Here in Youngstown 
           F                 C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down 
                      Dm 
Here darlin' in Youngstown 

         F                  C 
Well my daddy come on the 0hio works 
                                    Dm
When he come home from world war two 
                               C
Now the yards just scrap and rubble 
                                          Dm
He said, "Them big boys did what Hitler couldn't do" 
       F                    C
These mills they built the tanks and bombs 
                           Dm
That won this countries wars 
         C
We sent our sons to Korea and Vietnam 
                                   Dm
Now were wondering what they were dyin' for 
 
              C 
Here in Youngstown 
               Dm
Here in Youngstown 
           F                 C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down 
                      Dm 
Here darlin' in Youngstown 

 
From the Monongaleh valley 

To the Mesabi iron range 
       C
To the coal mines of Appalacchia 
                        Dm
The story's always the same 

Seven-hundred tons of metal a day 

Now sir you tell me the world's changed 
        C
Once I made you rich enough 
                          Dm
Rich enough to forget my name 
 

              C 
Here in Youngstown 
               Dm
Here in Youngstown 
           F                 C 
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down 
                      Dm 
Here darlin' in Youngstown 

           F                         C
When I die I don't want no part of heaven 
                               Dm
I would not do heavens work well 
            C
I pray the devil comes and takes me 
                           Dm
To stand in the fiery furnaces of hell
