(cover: gary u.s. bonds. written by springsteen)He was a bouncer in a joint called tony’s body shopShe was a night cashier down at the stop ’n’ shopHe was kinda good-lookin’And she was kinda funThey met ’neath that big oak treeOut where the river runsLittle angelyne, little angelyneAs the sun goes down and the moonlight shinesBack of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwinedJust big bill and little angelyneShe was just in from texas, didn’t know her way aroundSo he took her to a roadhouse on the edge of townIn the beerhall light she looked so fineAnd so he popped the question that was on his mindIt was a simple affair, only a friend or twoPreacher asked if they did, they said they doShe bought two tickets with her daddy’s american expressAnd hopped a greyhound bus in her wedding dressLittle angelyne, little angelyneAs the sun goes down and the moonlight shinesBack of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwinedJust big bill and little angelyneIn a six dollar motel with the honey bunWith seven glorious days in the nevada sunHe played the tables, she pumped the slots full of dimesThey came back broke but they had a good timeNow many fell apart in the years come and goneBut big bill and little angel they’d last on and onThey held together when the times grew thinA little boy that looked like her, and a girl that looked like himSo mister don’t you pay it no mindLet the sun go down and the moonlight shineBack of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwinedJust big bill and little angelyneLittle angelyne, little angelyneAs the sun goes down and the moonlight shinesBack of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwinedJust big bill and little angelyneLittle angelyne, little angelyneAs the sun goes down and the moonlight shinesBack of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwinedJust big bill and little angelyne
