THE PROMISED LAND

Live 05 Oct 2004 version


Bruce Springsteen:On a rattlesnake speedway in the Utah desert
I pick up my money head back into town
Driving cross the Waynesboury county line
I got the radio on and I'm just killing time
Working all day in my daddy's garage
Driving all night chasing some mirage
Pretty soon little girl I'm gonna take charge

Springsteen and Fogerty:Well the dogs on main street howl 'cause they understand
If I could take this moment into my hands
Mister I ain't a boy, no I'm a man
And I believe in a promised land

John Fogerty:I've done my best to live the right way
I get up every morning, go to work each day
But your eyes go blind, and your blood runs cold
Sometimes I feel so weak I just wanna explode
Explode and tear this whole town apart
Take a knife and cut this pain from my heart
Trying to find somebody itching for something to start

Springsteen and Fogerty:The dogs on main street howl 'cause they understand
If I could take this moment into my hands
Mister I ain't a boy, no I'm a man
And I believe in a promised land

Bruce Springsteen:There's a dark cloud rising from the desert floor
I packed my bags and I'm heading straight into the storm
John Fogerty:Gonna be a twister to blow everything down
That ain't got the faith to stand it's ground
Springsteen and Fogerty:Blow away the dreams that tear you apart
Blow away the dreams that break your heart
Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted

Springsteen and Fogerty:The dogs on main street howl 'cause they understand
If I could take this moment into my hands
Mister I ain't a boy, no I'm a man
And I believe in a promised land
And I believe in a promised land
And I believe in a promised land

Bruce Springsteen:La, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la-la-la-la

Bruce Springsteen:Sha, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la-la-la-la

Bruce Springsteen:Sha, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la-la-la-la

Bruce Springsteen:Sha, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la-la-la-la
