The Ghost Of Tom Joad - Bruce Springsteen

Bm
Men walkin' 'long the railroad tracks
D                         Bm       A
Goin' some place, there's no goin' back

Highway Patrol choppers comin' up over the ridge
     Bm                A         Bm
Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge

Shelter line stretchin' round the corner
D              Bm        A
Welcome to the new world order

Families sleepin' in their cars in the southwest
   Bm               A         Bm
No home, no job, no peace, no rest

    G
The highway is alive tonight
             D                    A         Bm
But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes
    A
I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
Bm                A        Bm
Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad


He pulls prayer book out of his sleepin' bag
  D                           Bm       A
Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag

Waitin' for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last
         Bm                   A    Bm
In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass

Got a one way ticket to the promised land
          D                        Bm         A
You got a hole in your belly and a gun in your hand

sleeping on a pillow of solid rock
   Bm               A   Bm
Bathing in the city aqueduct

    G
The highway is alive tonight
    D                 A         Bm
But where it's headed everybody knows
    A
I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
Bm                A        Bm
Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad

Now Tom Said; "Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy
           D          Bm         A
Wherever a hungry new born baby cries

Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air
 Bm              A       Bm
Look for me mom I'll be there

Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a pIace to stand
 D                   Bm     A
Or decent job or a helpin' hand

Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free
  Bm                       A      Bm
Look in their eyes mom you'll see me."

    G
The highway is alive tonight
             D                    A         Bm
But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes
    A
I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
Bm                A        Bm
Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad
