Angelyne (Springsteen Bruce)

(cover: Gary U.S. Bonds. Written by Springsteen) He was a bouncer in a joint called Tony's Body Shop She was a night cashier down at the Stop 'n' Shop He was kinda good-lookin' And she was kinda fun They met 'neath that big oak tree Out where the river runs Little Angelyne, little Angelyne As the sun goes down and the moonlight shines Back of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwined Just Big Bill and little Angelyne She was just in from Texas, didn't know her way around So he took her to a roadhouse on the edge of town In the beerhall light she looked so fine And so he popped the question that was on his mind It was a simple affair, only a friend or two Preacher asked if they did, they said they do She bought two tickets with her Daddy's American Express And hopped a greyhound bus in her wedding dress Little Angelyne, little Angelyne As the sun goes down and the moonlight shines Back of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwined Just Big Bill and little Angelyne In a six dollar motel with the honey bun With seven glorious days in the Nevada sun He played the tables, she pumped the slots full of dimes They came back broke but they had a good time Now many fell apart in the years come and gone But Big Bill and little Angel they'd last on and on They held together when the times grew thin A little boy that looked like her, and a girl that looked like him So mister don't you pay it no mind Let the sun go down and the moonlight shine Back of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwined Just Big Bill and little Angelyne Little Angelyne, little Angelyne As the sun goes down and the moonlight shines Back of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwined Just Big Bill and little Angelyne Little Angelyne, little Angelyne As the sun goes down and the moonlight shines Back of a greyhound bus sit two lovers entwined Just Big Bill and little Angelyne
