“The Wrestler”
Bruce Springsteen

(Capo III)

C                                                                          F
Have you ever seen a one trick pony in the field so happy and free?
C                                                                                              G
If you’ve ever seen a one trick pony, then you’ve seen me.
Have you ever seen a one-legged dog making its way down the street?
If you’ve ever seen a one-legged dog, then you’ve seen me.

F                              C
Then you’ve seen me…  I come and stand at every door.
F                                           C
Then you’ve seen me…  I always leave with less than I had before.
F                                                                      C                         Am7
Then you’ve seen me.  Bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor…
G                                        F                             Am7
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
G                            F                           C
Tell me, can you ask for anything more?

Have you ever seen a scarecrow filled with nothing but dust and wheat?
If you’ve ever seen that scarecrow, then you’ve seen me.
Have you ever seen a one-armed man punching at nothing but the breeze?
If you’ve ever seen a one-armed man, then you’ve seen me.

CHORUS

C                                                         F                    C
These things that have comforted me, I drive away.
C                                    F                         C
This place that is my home, I cannot stay.
C                                     F                                C                Am7
My only faith’s in the broken bones and bruises I display…

Have you ever seen a one-legged man trying to dance his way free?
If you’ve ever seen a one-legged man, then you’ve seen me…
