The River (河流) (The River: Single Album) - 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 ride out of this 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

 

Oh down to the river we ride
