470a-HUNGRY HEART – C1 Do M

Bruce Springsteen

 

Got a wife and kids in Baltimore Jack

I went out for a ride and I never went back

like a river that don't know where it's flowing

I took the wrong turn and I just kept going

 

everybody's got a hungry heart

everybody's got a hungry heart 

lay down your money and

you play your part

everybody's got a hungry heart

 

I met her in a Kingstown bar

we fell in love I knew it had to end

we took what we had and we ripped it apart

now here I am down in Kingstown again

 

everybody's got a hungry heart

everybody's got a hungry heart 

lay down your money and

you play your part

everybody's got a hungry heart

 

everybody needs a place to rest

everybody wants to have a home

don't make no difference what nobody says

ain't nobody like to be alone

 

everybody's got a hungry heart

everybody's got a hungry heart 

lay down your money and

you play your part

everybody's got a hungry heart

503b-BRILLIANT DISGUISE – La M

Bruce Springsteen

 

I hold you in my arms
as the band plays
what are those words whispered baby
just as you turn away


i saw you last night
out on the edge of town
i wanna read your mind
to know just what i've got

 in this new thing i've found


so tell me what i see
when i look in your eyes
is that you baby
or just a brilliant disguise

 

I heard somebody call your name
from underneath our willow
i saw something tucked in shame
underneath your pillow


well i've tried so hard baby
but i just can't see
what a woman like you
is doing with me

 

so tell me who i see
when i look in your eyes
is that you baby
or just a brilliant disguise


Now look at me baby
struggling to do everything right
and then it all falls apart
when out go the lights


i'm just a lonely pilgrim
i walk this world in wealth
i want to know if it's you i don't trust
'cause i damn sure don't trust myself


Now you play the loving woman
i'll play the faithful man
but just don't look too close
into the palm of my hand


*we stood at the alter
the gypsy swore our future was right
but come the wee wee hours
well maybe baby the gypsy lied


so when you look at me

you better look hard and look twice
is that me baby
or just a brilliant disguise


Tonight our bed is cold
i'm lost in the darkness of our love
god have mercy on the man
who doubts what he's sure of

078a-INDEPENDENCE DAY – C1 La M

Bruce Springsteen

 

Well Papa go to bed now it's getting late

Nothing we can say

is gonna change anything now

I'll be leaving in the morning from St. Mary's Gate

We wouldn't change this thing

even if we could somehow

 

Cause the darkness of this house

has got the best of us

There's a darkness in this town

that's got us too

But they can't touch me now

And you can't touch me now

They ain't gonna do to me

What I watched them do to you

 

So say goodbye it's Independence Day

It's Independence Day

All down the line

Just say goodbye it's Independence Day

It's Independence Day this time

 

Now I don't know what it always was with us

We chose the words, and yeah, we drew the lines

There was just no way this house

could hold the two of us

I guess that we were just too much

of the same kind

 

Well say goodbye it's Independence Day

It's Independence Day all boys must run away

So say goodbye it's Independence Day

All men must make their way come Independence Day

 

Guitar solo

 

Now the rooms are all empty down

at Frankie's joint

And the highway she's deserted

clear down to Breaker's Point

There's a lot of people leaving town now

Leaving their friends, their homes

At night they walk that dark

and dusty highway all alone

Well Papa go to bed now it's getting late

Nothing we can say can change anything now

Because there's just different people coming down here now

and they see things in different ways

And soon everything we've known will just be swept away

 

So say goodbye it's Independence Day

Papa now I know the things you wanted that you could not say

But won't you just say goodbye it's Independence Day

I swear I never meant to take those things away

079a-THE RIVER – Mi m

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 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,

Oh down to the river we ride.
