The River

Bruce Springsteen / Bruce Springsteen: The River (1980)

Em G D C
I come from down the valley where Mister, when you're young,
Em G C G
They bring you up to do just like your daddy done.
C G D Em
Me and Mary we met in high school When she was just seventeen.
Am9 G C
We'd ride out of this valley down to where the fields were green.
Em C D G
We'd go down to the river and into the river we'd dive,
Em C D C
Oh, down to the river we'd ride.
 
Em G D C
Then I got Mary pregnant and man that was all she wrote,
Em G C G
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat.
C G D Em
We went down to the courthouse and the judge put it all to rest.
Am9 G C
No wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle, No flowers no wedding dress.
Em C D G
That night we went down to the river and into the river we'd dive,
Em C D C
Oh, down to the river we'd ride.

Em G D C
I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company,
Em G C G
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy.
C G D Em
Now all them things that seemed so important, Well, mister, they vanished right into the air.
Am9 G C
Now I just act like I don't remember and Mary acts like she don't care.
 
Em G D C
But I remember us riding in my brothers car, her body tan and wet down by the reservoir.
Em G C G
At night on them banks I'd lie awake and pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take.
C G D Em
Now those memories come back to haunt me, They haunt me like a curse.
Am9 G C
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true or is it something worse?
Em C D G
It sends me down to the river, though I know the river is dry!
Em C D C
Oh, down to the river toni-i-i-ight.
Em C D G
Down to the river my baby and I,
Em C D C Em
Oh, down to the river we ri-i-i-ide. Oh-oh-...
