Bruce SpringsteenLong Walk Home

Last night I stood at your doorstep Trying to figure out what went wrong You just slipped something into my palm and you were gone I could smell the same deep green of summer 'Bove me the same night sky was glowin' In the distance I could see the town where I was born It's gonna be a long walk home Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me Gonna be a long walk home A long walk home In town I pass Sal's grocery Barber shop on South Street I looked in their faces* They're all rank strangers to me* Well Veteran's Hall high upon the hill Stood silent and alone The diner was shuttered and boarded With a sign that just said "gone" It's gonna be a long walk home Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me Gonna be a long walk home Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me Gonna be a long walk home It's gonna be a long walk home [Guitar break] [Sax break] Here everybody has a neighbor Everybody has a friend Everybody has a reason to begin again My father said "Son, we're lucky in this town, It's a beautiful place to be born. It just wraps its arms around you, Nobody crowds you and nobody goes it alone" "Your flag flyin' over the courthouse Means certain things are set in stone. Who we are, what we'll do and what we won't" It's gonna be a long walk home Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me Gonna be a long walk home Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me Gonna be a long walk home It's gonna be a long walk home It's gonna be a long walk home Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me Gonna be a long walk home Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me Gonna be a long walk home It's gonna be a long walk home It's gonna be a long walk home [guitar break] [sax break]
