A REASON TO BELIEVE
Bruce Springsteen, off the Nebraska album.
(submitted by [email protected])

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:
Wonderin', where can his baby be...
