Chris Ross - Little Less Bitter Guitar Chords

Chords: Am, G, F, C
Chris borrowed the first verse of "Darkness on The Edge of Town" by Springsteen 
for this tune.  But it's one of my favorites he's ever done.

8/19/13 I got back into playing this song and realized that the C chord in the 
verses just isn't right.  This way sounds a lot closer to what he's really playing.

CAPO 5th Fret!  Definitley Youtube the song to get the riff down

Am                    G
I lit another on the on-ramp
F                       Am       G   F
Put on Darkness on the Edge of Town...
Am                    G
Ain't it funny how a sad song
              F
Can make the road long
                Am      G    F
Cause a man to cover ground...


Am                        G
With every smile in the rearview
F                                      Am
Right next to all them things that I shoulda done
   G                 F
I never did, Not a single one
Am                 G           F
Her eyes were the first prize
                             Am       G   F
In a lonesome game I shoulda never won

Well this
C
Place I'm headin' just don't
Am
Seem much better I guess it
G
Just hasn't set in 
          F
I should start forgettin' well this
C
Sure ain't Jersey
Am
But I'm racin' down these streets again
G
Headin' for the shore
F
With a little luck
A little less bitter and

Am                   G         F
I said goodbye to a closed eye
                       Am        G  F
Just beggin' for it's ocean blue
Am                     G         F
Cause after all it's a long ride
                   Am     G  F
From Badlands to Fairview...

Am                  G 
Ain't it funny how one little girl
F
Could take a place like this whole wide world
Am                     G                 F
Crush it down make it seem so goddamn...Small
Am                        G                  F
Ain't it somethin' how a man with nothin' can
                    Am           G  F
Always find a lower place to fall

Well this
Place I'm headin' just don't
Seem much better I guess it
Just hasn't set in
I should start forgettin' well this
Sure ain't Jersey
But I'm racin' down these streets again
Headin' for the shore
And with a little luck
A little less bitter and

(Intro x2)

         Am            G          F
They're still racing down at the Trestles
           Am            G             F
But that blood it never burned in her veins
       Am               G           F
Now I hear she's got a house up in Fairview
        Am               G           F
And a style she's trying to maintain
     Am       G       F
Well if she wants to see me
         Am                 G         F
You can tell her that I'm easily found
  Am                G               F
Tell her there's a spot out 'neath Abram's Bridge
              Am         G              F
And tell her there's a darkness on the edge of town
Am          G              F
There's a darkness on the edge of town
Am        G               F
I'm that darkness on the edge...
     (Intro) x2
Of town...

End on Am
