Youngstown

Chords and lyrics for Youngstown by Bruce Springsteen

Dm 
Here in northeast Ohio, back in 1803
Cadd9 
James and Dan Heaton found the ore that was lining Yel
Dm 
low 
 
Creek.
Dm 
They built a blast furnace here along the shore,
Cadd9 
And they made the cannonballs that helped the Union win  
Dm 
the 
 
war.
 
Here in  
Cadd9 
Youngstown
 
Here in  
Dm 
Youngstown
 
My sweet  
F 
Jenny I’m sinkin’  
C 
down
 
Here darlin’ in  
Dm 
Youngstown
 
Well, my  
F 
daddy come on the O
C 
hio 
 
works
 
When he come home from World War  
Dm 
Two.
 
Now the  
Cadd9 
yard’s just scrap and rubble
 
He said “Them big boys did what Hitler  
Dm 
couldn’t 
 
do.”
 
These  
F 
mills they built the  
C 
tanks and bombs
 
That won this country’s  
Dm 
wars.
 
Now we’re wondering what they were  
Dm 
dying 
 
for.
 
When I  
F 
die I don’t want no part of  
C 
heaven
 
I would not do heaven’s work  
Dm 
well
 
I pray the  
Cadd9 
devil comes and takes me to stand
 
In the fiery furna
Dm 
ces of hell.
