THE RIVER

 

THE RIVER

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

 

I come from down in the ___________

Where mister, when you’re young

They bring you ___________ to do like your daddy done

Me and Mary we met in high school

When she was just seventeen

We’d drive out of thE ___________ down to where the fields were green

We’d go down to the river

And into the river we’d __________

Oh  oh down to the river we’d ride

 

Then I got Mary __________

And, man, that was all she wrote

And for my 19th birthday I got a ___________ card and a wedding coat

We went down to the courthouse

When  the judge put it all to rest

No wedding day smiles, no walk down the __________

No flowers, no wedding dress

That night we went down to the river

And into the river we’d ___________

Oh, oh down to the river we’d ride

 

I got a job working ___________ for the Johnstown Company

But lately there ain’t been no work on ___________ of the economy

Now all them things that seemed so important

Well, mister they just __________ right into the air

I just act like I don’t remember

Mary acts like she don’t care

But I remember riding in my brother’s car

Her body __________ and wet down at the reservoir

At night on them banks I’d lie awake

And pull her close just to feel each breath she’d take

Now those memories come back to haunt me

They haunt me like a __________

Is a dream a lie if it don’t come true

Or is it something worse

That sends me

Down to the river

Though I know the river is ___________

sends me down to the river tonight

Down to the river

My baby and I

Oh down to the river we ride

 

 

THE RIVER

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

 

I come from down in the valley

Where mister, when you’re young

They bring you up to do like your daddy done

Me and Mary we met in high school

When she was just seventeen

We’d drive out of the valley down to where the fields were green

We’d go down to the river

And into the river we’d dive

Oh, oh down to the river we’d ride

 

Then I got Mary pregnant

And, man, that was all she wrote

And for my 19th birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat

We went down to the courthouse

when the judge put it all to rest

No wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle

No flowers, no wedding dress

That night we went down to the river

And into the river we’d dive

Oh down to the river we’d ride

 

I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company

But lately there ain’t been no work on account of the economy

Now all them things that seemed so important

Well, mister they just vanish right into the air

I just act like I don’t remember

Mary acts like she don’t care

But I remember riding in my brother’s car

Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir

At night on them banks I’d lie awake

And pull her close just to feel each breath she’d take

Now those memories come back to haunt me

They haunt me like a curse

Is a dream a lie if it don’t come true

Or is it something worse

That sends me

Down to the river

Though I know the river is dry

sends me down to the river tonight

Down to the river

My baby and I

Oh down to the river we ride
