Bruce Springsteen – Take 'em As They Come lyrics

Last night I dreamed we was running through the outlands
Tears streaming, your pretty face all a wreck
(I held your daddy's gun in my tremblin' hands
And down the highway another stranger comes
You gotta take 'em baby when they come.

Little girl put on your best dress
'Cause we're goin' out on the town tonight
(Better bring along your switchblades)
'Cause for sure some fool's gonna wanna fight
You've got to take 'em baby as they come

You gotta take 'em, take 'em as they come, girl
Take 'em as they come, girl
Take 'em as they come, girl
Take 'em baby as they come

God save the rider in the black night
Save the man who taught that it was right
To do what they have done
To become what we have become
You gotta take 'em when they come
Little girl, gone are the days
Faded away into a clear blue night
And all the vows that we made
Lie shattered and broken in the morning light
