A Reason To Believe Bruce Springsteen
A REASON TO BELIEVE Bruce Springsteen, off the Nebraska album. (submitted by firstname.lastname@example.org) Basic blues progression: A-D-A-E A D A A man stands by a dead dog, by the highway, in the ditch A E He's looking down kinda puzzled, poking that dog with a stick Got his car door flung open, out on Highway 31 Like if he stood there long enough, that dog would up and run. CHORUS: Well it struck me kinda funny, some kind of funny yes indeed At the end of every hard day people find some reason to believe Now Mary's little love Johnny, with a love mean and true Said I'll work for you every day, bring my money home to you One day he up and left her, and ever since that She stands at the end of that dirt road, waiting for young Johnny to come back. CHORUS Take a baby to the river, Carl William they call him Wash the baby in the water, [unintelligible] Whitewashed old gun shack, an old man paces away Take the baby to the graveyard, and over him they pray CHORUS, with 1st line: Lord won't you tell us, tell us what does it mean Congregation gathered, down by the riverside Preacher stands with a Bible, groom waiting for his bride Congregation gone, the sun sets behind a weeping willow tree Groom stands alone and watches the river rush on so effortlessly CHORUS, with 1st line:

from memory ???
Now Mary loves Johnny, with a love....
Wash the baby in the water, wash away little Carl's sins
Whitewashed old gun shack, an old man passes away
They take his body to the graveyard
and over it they pray
