Il fiume - The river

(texture courtesy Visualogist)

Bruce Springsteen - The river

I come from down in the valley

where mister when 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 ride 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 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 card and a wedding coat

We went down to the courthouse

and the judge put it all to rest

No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle

No flowers no wedding dress

 

That night we went down to the river

And into the river we'd dive

Oh down to the river we did ride
