Spare Parts
written by Bruce Springsteen
from the album "Tunnel of Love"
tabbed 8/26/05
One of my favorites of his.   Certainly one of the coolest opening verses.
That D/A is to signify an alternating pattern of D and D/A (x00232).


INTRO: D/A

D/A
Bobby said he'd pull out, Bobby stayed in

Janey had a baby it wasn't any sin
G
They were set to marry on a summer day
  D/A                   A
Bobby got scared and he ran away


Jane moved in with her mama out on Shawnee Lake
She sighed "Mama sometimes my whole life feels like one big mistake"
She settled in in a backroom, time passed on
Later that winter a son come along


CHORUS 1:
      G
Spare parts
            D
And broken hearts
               A
Keep the world turnin'
  G      G/F#   D/A
Around


Now Janey walked that baby 'cross that floor night after night
But she was a young girl and she missed the party lights
Meanwhile in South Texas in a dirty oil patch
Bobby heard about his son bein' born and swore he wasn't ever goin' back


CHORUS 2:
       G
Spare parts
            D
And broken hearts
                A
Keep the world turnin'
  G            D/A
Around....'n round


BRIDGE:
       G
Janey heard about a woman over in Calverton
         D/A
Put her baby in the river, let the river roll on
      G
She looked at her boy in the crib where he lay
     A
Got down on her knees, cried 'til she prayed


Mist was on the water, low run the tide
Janey held her son down at the riverside
Waste deep in the water, how bright the sun shone
She lifted him in her arms and carried him home


As he lay sleepin' in her bed Janey took a look around at everything
Went to a drawer in her bureau and got out her old engagement ring
Took out her wedding dress tied that ring up in the sash
Went straight down to the pawnshop man and walked out with some good cold cash


CHORUS 1
