Bruce Springsteen – Meeting Across The River lyrics

Hey Eddie, can you lend me a few bucks?
And tonight can you get us a ride?
Gotta make it through the tunnel
Got a meetin’ with a man on the other side

Hey Eddie, this guy, he's the real thing
So if you wanna come along
You gotta promise you won't say anything

Cause this guy don't dance
And the word's been passed
This is our last chance

We gotta stay cool tonight, Eddie
Cause man, we got ourselves out on that line
And if we blow this one
They ain't gonna be lookin’ for just me this time

And all we gotta do is hold up our end
Here, stuff this in your pocket
It'll look like you're carrying a friend

Remember, just don't smile
Change your shirt
Cause tonight we got style

Well, Cherry says she's gonna walk
Cause she found I took the radio and hocked it
But Eddie, man, she don't understand
That two grand's practically sittin’ here in my pocket

And tonight's gonna be everything that I said
And when I walk through that door
I'm just gonna throw that money on the bed

She'll see this time I wasn't just talking
Then I'm gonna go out walking

Hey Eddie, can you catch us a ride?
