the river

    Bruce Springsteen "the river"


    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 ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green

    We'd go down to the river
    And into the river we'd dive
    Oh down to the river we'd ride

    Then I got Mary pregnant
    and man that was all she wrote
    And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
    We went down to the courthouse
    and 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 did ride

    I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
    But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
    Now all them things that seemed so important
    Well mister they vanished right into the air
    Now I just act like I don't remember
    Mary acts like she don't care

    But I remember us 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
    That sends me down to the river tonight
    Down to the river
    my baby and I
