The River (Live) by Bruce Springsteen

...
I (1)________ from (2)________ in the valley
Where (3)____________ when you're young
They (4)__________ you up to do
Like (5)________ daddy done
Me and Mary we met in high school
When she was (6)________ seventeen
We'd drive out of this valley
Down to where the (7)____________ were green

We'd go down to the river
And (8)________ the river we'd dive
(Oh oh) down to the river we'd ride

Then I got (9)________ pregnant
And man that was all she wrote
And for my (10)____________________ birthday
I got a union card and a wedding coat

We (11)________ (12)________ to the courthouse
And the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles
No (13)________ down the aisle
No flowers, no (14)______________ dress
We (15)________ (16)________ to the river
And (17)________ the (18)__________ we'd dive
(Oh oh) down to the (19)__________ we'd ride

I got a job working construction
For the Johnstown Company
But lately (20)__________ ain't been no work
On account of the economy

Now all (21)________ things that seemed so important
Well (22)____________ they vanished right into the air
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 tanned and wet down at the reservoir
At night on (23)________ banks I'd lie awake
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
Now the (24)________________ come back to haunt me
They haunt me like a curse
Is a (25)__________ a lie if it don't (26)________ true
Or is it something worse
That sends me down to the river
Though I know the (27)__________ is dry
(Oh oh) down to the (28)__________ tonight
...
Down to the river
My baby and I
(Oh oh) down to the river we ride
