I spend my nights down on the wharf
In unlit alleyways
By the church downtown
Where sally prays
Come down sometime
We'll share a rusty can of corn...
And listen to the radio
I love you, I love you, it says...

Chorus:
Where did your heart go
Did you put it on a train
Did you leave it in the rain
Or down in mexico

You cry, but I don't know
I've heard it all before
There it goes again, the slamming of the door
Sometimes the river calls me
And at night it calls my name
Says "put your troubles down beside me"
Things have always been the same...
And rock 'n' roll won't teach me
What the river said that night
I jumped into this beauty
And drifted out of sight...

Chorus
(return to top)

    I think the meaning of the guy is this guy a singer, most likely a rock singer. He wrestled with some unknown problem, maybe the things that are usually associated with being a troubled rock star: drugs, alcohol, or infidelity. Nontheless, some demon had driven him and Sally apart. Probably Sally dumps him and seeks solace in Church meanwhile he, unable to help himself, keeps destroying himself. He's homeless, alone, and the world grows dim to him. Meanwhile her heart is so far from him. He is desperate. He seeks her out but she cannot be with this guy anymore and so he ends his life over a bridge where a river calls his name.
