Straight Time - Bruce Springsteen 
 
D11
Got out of prison back in '86 and I found me a wife 
                       G/B
Walked the clean and narrow 
               D11
just tryin' to stay out and stay alive 

Got a job at the rendering factory,  it ain't gonna make me rich 
                       G/B
In the darkness before dinner comes 
                D11
Sometimes I can feel the itch 
                  A7sus                     G 
I got a cold mind to go tripping across that thin line 
                         D11
I'm sick of doin straight time 
 

My uncles at the evenin' table makes his living runnin' hot cars 
                    G/B
Slips me a hundred dollar bill, says 
                                      D11
"Charlie, you best remember who your friends are." 
                  A7sus                     G
I got a cold mind to go tripping across that thin line 
                       D11
I ain't makin' straight time 
 
             G                     D11
Eight years in, it feels Iike your gonna die 
                      G                         D11
But you get used to anything sooner or later it becomes your life 
 

Kitchen floor in the evening, tossin' my little babies high 
                         G/B
Mary's smilin', but she watches me 
                  D11
out of the corner of her eye 

Seems you can't get any more than half free 
                         G/B
I step out onto the front porch
                           D11
And suck the cold air deep inside of me 
                A7sus                    G
Got a cold mind to go tripping cross that thin line 
                        D11
I'm sick of doin' straight time 

          G                         D11
In the basement, huntin' gun and a hacksaw 
                    G                          D11
Sip a beer, and thirteen inches of barrel drop to the floor 

 
Come home in the evening, can't get the smell from my hands 
                        G/B
Lay my head down on the pillow 
                           D11
And, go driftin' off into foreign lands
