Bruce Springsteen

GROWIN' UP  (from the album "Greetings From Ashbury Park, N.J.")

Note:  This is taken from the book Springsteen Complete


Well, I stood stonelike at midnight suspended in my masquerade
C       Csus       C          C(2) C   Csus         C          C(2)  C

And I combed my hair till it was just right and commanded the night brigade
      Csus      C                C(2)      C       Csus       C             C(2)

I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I walked on a crooked crutch
C     F       C       G           C              F           C

I strolled all alone through a fallout zone and came out with my soul untouched
C F             C              G       C             F        C  G    C

I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said "Sit down" I stood up
F G                                                   Am

Ooh-ooh growin' up
F   G7  F       C

The flag of piracy flew from my mast my sails were set wing to wing 
I had a jukebox graduate for first mate she couldn't sail but she sure could 
I pushed B-52 and bombed `em with the blues with my gear set stubborn on 
I broke all the rules strafed my old high school never once gave thought to 
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said`Come down'I threw up
Ooh-ooh growin' up

I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere and you know it's really hard 
   to hold your breath
I swear I lost everything I ever loved or feared I was the cosmic kid
Well my feet they finally took root in the earth but I got me a nice little 
   place in the stars
I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said`Sit down'I stood up
Ooh-ooh growin' up
Ooh-ooh growin' up
