Darlington County Lyrics

[Verse 1: Bruce Springsteen]
Driving in to Darlin'ton County
Me and Wayne on the Fourth of July
Driving in to Darlin'ton County
Looking for some work on the county line
We drove down from New York City
Where the girls are pretty
But they just want to know your name
Driving in to Darlin'ton City
Got a union connection with an uncle of Wayne's
We drove 800 miles without seeing a cop
We got rock and roll music blasting off the t-top, singing

[Chorus: Bruce Springsteen]
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la

[Verse 2: Bruce Springsteen]
Hey little girl, standing on the corner
Today's your lucky day for sure, all right
Me and my buddy, we're from New York City
We got $200; we want to rock all night
Girl, you're looking at two big spenders
Why, the world don't know what me and Wayne might do
Our pa's each own one of the World Trade Centers
For a kiss and a smile, I'll give mine all to you
Come on baby, take a seat on my fender
It's a long night, and tell me
What else were you gonna do?
Just me and you, we could

[Chorus: Bruce Springsteen]
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la

[Verse 3: Bruce Springsteen]
Little girl, sitting in the window
Ain't seen my buddy in seven days
County man tells me the same thing
He don't work and he don't get paid
Little girl, you're so young and pretty
Walk with me and you can have your way
And we'll leave this Darlin'ton City
For a ride down that Dixie Highway

[Bridge: Bruce Springsteen]
Driving out of Darlin'ton County
My eyes seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
Driving out of Darlin'ton County
Seen Wayne handcuffed to the bumper of a state trooper's Ford

[Outro: Bruce Springsteen]
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la, la la la
