Born in a city that's got three rivers
There's a lot of bridges where I come from
Born in a city that's got three rivers
The people live and the work gets done

They run past the church and the county jail
Move on through the smoke of abandoned mills
I've been in a pew, I've been in a cell
Heard the drunk men singing and the ringing bells

Well we all want to know, whose gonna save our soul?

Born in a city that's got three rivers
There's a couple people that know my name
Born in a city that's got three rivers
Pumping like the blood that's in my veins

I was a mad young man I can see me now
With my fist clenched tight and a furrowed brow
Fighting and running like a river wild
Nothing in the world could have slowed me down

But oh, ain't that how it goes?
Now I know, ain't that how it goes?

Born in a city that's got three rivers
Oh, I haven't been there in quite some time
Born in a city that's got three rivers
There you'll find the woman that's on my mind

She's as good as gold with a diamond heart
Hair black as coal on a river barge
Now I know love is a stead climb like a trolley-car up a mountainside

And I, am thinking I'll come home
Oh I hope she opens up her door
And she says hello

Born in a city that's got three rivers
There's a lot of bridges where I came from

Monongahela, Ohio, Allegheny
