The River (Live) by Bruce Springsteen

...
I come (1)________ (2)________ in the valley
Where (3)____________ (4)________ 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 drive 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 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 (5)________ and a wedding coat

We (6)________ (7)________ to the courthouse
And the judge put it all to rest
No (8)______________ day smiles
No (9)________ down the aisle
No flowers, no wedding dress
We went (10)________ to the river
And (11)________ the river we'd dive
(Oh oh) down to the river we'd ride

I got a job working construction
For the Johnstown Company
But lately (12)__________ ain't (13)________ no work
On account of the economy

Now all them things (14)________ (15)____________ so important
Well mister they vanished right into the air
I just act like I don't remember
Mary acts like she don't care
But I (16)________________ us (17)____________ in my brother's car
Her body tanned and wet (18)________ at the reservoir
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
And (19)________ her close just to feel each breath she'd take
Now the memories (20)________ back to haunt me
They haunt me like a curse
Is a (21)__________ a lie if it don't come true
Or is it something worse
That (22)__________ me (23)________ to the river
Though I know the river is dry
(Oh oh) (24)________ to the (25)__________ tonight
...
Down to the river
My baby and I
(Oh oh) (26)________ to the river we ride
