Written by Bruce Springsteen
© Bruce Springsteen

We said we'd walk together baby come what may
There come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walking hands should slip free
I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind wait for me

We swore we'd travel darling side by side
And we'd help each other stay in stride
Each lover's steps fall so differently
So I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind wait for me

Everyone dreams of love lasting and true
But you and I know what this world can do
Let's make our steps clear that the other may see
And I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind wait for me

Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
And there 'neath the oak's bough soon we'll be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind wait for me

Darling I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind wait for me
Darling I'll wait for you
