Bruce Springsteen – A Night With The Jersey Devil lyrics

Hear me now!
I was born 13th child,
'neath the 13th moon
Spit out hungry
And born anew
Daddy drag me
To the river
Tie me in rocks
Throw me in where
It's deep and wide
I go down, I don't die
In the river bottom,
I crawl through
Come back
Kill six brothers
And sisters,
Kill Papa too
Sway down Mama,
Sway down low
They gonna know me
Wherever I go

Into my bed
With her kerosene
My mama creep
Set my flesh to burning,
Whilst I sleep
I burn, burn, burn,
Till my soul burn black
Black rains fall,
I come back, I come back
Get down Mama, get down low
They gonna know me
Wherever I go

16 witches cast 16 spells
Make me guitar outta skin
And human skull
Sing you a song like the wind
In the sandy loam
Bring you baby
Out'cha your happy home

Ram's head, forked tail,
Clove hoof, love's my trail
I sup on your body,
Sip on your blood like wine
Out world theirs,
This world mine
So kiss me baby
Till it hurts
God lost in heaven,
We lost on earth
Sway down Mama,
Sway down low
They gonna know me
Wherever I go (yeah)
Wherever I go (yeah),
Wherever I go

I got a brand new lover
I love her, yes I do
Yeah she's my one and only
And her name is Baby Blue
Now baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby, blue
That's right
Whoah, ha!
Well now baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, blue
