Cautious Man (Album Version) - Bruce Springsteen

Bill horton was a cautious man of the road

 

He walked lookin' over his shoulder

 

And remained faithful to it's code

 

When something caught his eye

 

He'd measure his need

 

And then very carefully hed proceed

 

Billy met a young girl in the early days of may

 

It was there in her arms

 

He let his cautiousness slip away

 

In their lovers twilight

 

As the evening sky grew dim

 

He'd lay back in her arms

 

And laugh what had happened to him

 

On his right hand billy tattooed

The word love and on his left hand

Was the word fear

 

And in which hand he held his fate

 

Was never clear

 

Come indian summer he took his young lover

For his bride

 

And with own hands built a great house

Down by the riverside

 

Now Billy was an honest man

He wanted to do what was right

 

He worked hard to fill their lives

With happy days and loving nights

 

Alone on his knees in the darkness

 

For steadiness he'd pray

 

For he knew in a restless heart

 

The seed of betrayal lay

 

One night Billy awoke from a terrible

Dream callin' his wifes name

 

She lay breathing beside him

In a peaceful sleep a thousand miles away

 

He got dressed in the moonlight

 

And down to the highway he strode

 

When he got there

 

He didn't find nothing but road

 

Billy felt a coldness rise up inside him

 

That he couldn't name

 

Just as the words tattooed

'Cross his knuckles

 

He knew would always remain

 

At their bedside he brushed

The hair from his wifes face

 

As the moon shone on her skin so white

 

Filling their room with the beauty

 

Of Gods fallen light
