Wreck On The Highway - Bruce Springsteen

| A | A | A | A

A                          D

Last night I was out driving
A                                        | E Esus4 | E
Coming home at the end of the working day
       A

I was riding alone through the drizzling rain
       D

On a deserted stretch of a county two lane
        A          E                A

When I came upon a wreck on the highway



    

                                     D

Now there was blood and glass all over 
A                               | E Esus4 | E
And there was nobody there but me
            A

As the rain tumbled down hard and cold
         D

I seen a young man lying by the side of the road
          A       E                 A    
He cried Mister, won't you help me please

(Organ solo) | A | F#m | F#m | A | A | F#m | F#m | A | A 

                                                  D

An ambulance finally came and took him to Riverside
A                              | E Esus4 | E
I watched as they drove him away
       A

And I thought of a girlfriend or a young wife
       D

And a state trooper knocking in the middle of the night
             A              E               A

To say your baby died in a wreck on the highway

                                 D

Sometimes I sit up in the darkness
A                               | E Esus4 | E
And I watch my baby as she sleeps
       A

Then I climb in bed and I hold her tight
       D

I just lay there awake in the middle of the nigth
         A         E                  A

Thinking 'bout the wreck on the highway

Last night I was out driving
Coming home at the end of the working day
I was riding alone through the drizzling rain
On a deserted stretch of a county two-lane
When I came upon a wreck on the highway

There was blood and glass all over
And there was nobody there but me
As the rain tumbled down hard and cold
I seen a young man lying by the side of the road
He cried "Mister, won't you help me please"

An ambulance finally came and took him to Riverside
I watched as they drove him away
And I thought of a girlfriend or a young wife
And a state trooper knocking in the middle of the night
To say your baby died in a wreck on the highway

Sometimes I sit up in the darkness
And I watch my baby as she sleeps
Then I climb in bed and I hold her tight
I just lay there awake in the middle of the night
Thinking 'bout the wreck on the highway
