G G                   C C      G G-D D-G G
Screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
Bm Bm C C
Like a vision dancing across the porch as the radio plays
D D G G C C
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely, hey that's me and I want you only
G G D D
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again


Don't run back inside, honey, you know just what I'm here for
And you're scared and you're thinking that maybe we ain't that
young any more
show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty but eh, you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me

G G D D G G C C
Ohh come take my hand We're ridin out tonight to case the Promised Land
G G Bm Bm C C D D
Oh Thunder Road, Oh Thunder road, Oh Thunder Road
G G Bm Bm
Lyin' out there like a killer in the dark
G G C C
Hey I know it's late, we can make it if we run
G G Bm Bm C C D D G G
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight, take hold, Thunder Road
C C D D G G
So I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
Em Em C C D D
And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
C C D D
From your front porch to my front seat
Bm Bm Em Em
Door's open but the ride ain't free
C C C C- Am7 Am7 Am Am
Well I know you've been waiting for words that I ain't spoken
D D D+ D+ D D- D7 D7
Well tonight we'll be free--all the promises will be broken

I think it might help to add more chords to the lyrics. I get VERY lost after the first bit.

It is ranked as one of Springsteen's greatest songs, and often appears on lists of the top rock songs of all time.
