The Price You Pay
recorded by Emmylou Harris 
written by Bruce Springsteen
 
C                                    F
You make up your mind  you choose the chance you take
                      C                    G7
You ride to where the highway ends and the desert breaks
             C                  F
Out on to an open road you ride until the day
             C              G7       C
You learn to sleep at night with the price you pay
 
                                                        F
Now with their hands held high they reached out for the open skies
               C
And then with their last breath they built the roads
           G7
They would ride to their deaths
           C                           F
Driving on through the night unable to break away
         C             G7     F
From the restless pull of the price you pay
 
        C                   F
Oh the price you pay oh the price you pay
              C         G7                C
Now you can't walk away from the price you pay
 
                                  F
Now they'd come so far and they'd waited so long
                           C                      G7
Just to end up caught in a dream where everything goes wrong     
          C                            F
Where the dark of night holds back the light of the day
                 C               G7      F
And you've gotta stand and fight for the price you pay
 
Repeat #3
 
C
Little girl down on the strand
                             F
With that pretty little baby in your hands
       C                         G7
Do you remember the story of the promised land
                   C
How he crossed the desert sands
                        F
And could not enter the chosen land
                    C
On the banks of the river he stayed
G7          C
To face the price you pay
 
C                                                F
So let the games start you better run you little wild heart
        C                                      G7
You can run through all the nights and all the days
                    C
But just across the county line
                           F
A stranger passing through put up a sign
                    C           G7     F
That counts so many fallen away to the price you pay
 
       C                    F
Oh the price you pay oh the price you pay
             C         G7       F
Now you can't walk away from the price you pay
       C                    F
Oh the price you pay oh the price you pay
              C         G7       F         C
Now you can't walk away from the price you pay
