Wednesday’s Words – Reason To Believe

“Struck me kinda funny seemed kind of funny sir to me
How at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe”

“Reason To Believe” – Bruce Springsteen

Seen a man standin’ over a dead dog lyin’ by the highway in a ditch
He’s lookin’ down kinda puzzled pokin’ that dog with a stick
Got his car door flung open he’s standin’ out on highway 31
Like if he stood there long enough that dog’d get up and run
Struck me kinda funny seem kinda funny sir to me
Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Now Mary Lou loved Johnny with a love mean and true
She said “Baby I’ll work for you every day and bring my money home to you”
One day he up and left her and ever since that
She waits down at the end of that dirt road for young Johnny to come back
Struck me kinda funny seemed kind of funny sir to me
How at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Take a baby to the river Kyle William they called him
Wash the baby in the water take away little Kyle’s sin
In a whitewash shotgun shack an old man passes away take his body to the graveyard and over him they pray Lord won’t you tell us
tell us what does it mean
Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Congregation gathers down by the riverside
Preacher stands with his Bible groom stands waitin’ for his bride
Congregation gone and the sun sets behind a weepin’ willow tree
Groom stands alone and watches the river rush on so effortlessly
Wonderin’ where can his baby be still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Nebraska is the sixth studio album by Bruce Springsteen, released in 1982.

Sparsely-recorded on a cassette-tape Portastudio, Nebraska was originally intended as a demonstration for later expansion into a “proper” album with a full band.

However, Springsteen ultimately decided to release the demos as a standalone album. Nebraska remains one of the most highly-regarded albums in his catalog.

Nebraska is classic Springsteen in the sense that the songs deal with ordinary, blue collar characters who face a challenge or a turning point in their lives. There is very little of the grace or salvation which can be seen in other albums.
