Bruce is a great storyteller, but can we create a story from his lyrics. A line or a few consecutive words. You can add a/and/the to help keep things rolling on.I'll make an obvious start.I wake up in the morning
in a deadmans town
Transmitting from behind these jailhouse
Got a cold mind to go tripping 'cross that thin line
I'm sick of doin' straight time
As the band played Night of the Johnstown Flood
Your sweet memory comes on the evenin' wind
I sleep and dream of holding you in my arms again
Last night I dreamed of you my lover
We won't be dancing together on the high wire
Facing the lions with you at my side anymore
She wasn't saying nothin'
A stray bullet shot my baby down
Where the cold black river run
Crossed the river
we drove down from NYC
She won't take corner boys, ain't got no money and they're so easy
I swear I left my wallet back home in my workin' pants
Two hundred dollars straight in.......
So Mary, climb in
I'm living on the edge of the world
I pulled a bottle of Jack out of a paper bag
For a meeting with a man on the other side
And there someone is waitin'
