With Every Wish (Springsteen Bruce)

Ol' catfish in the lake, we called him Big Jim B 1. When I was a kid, my only wish was to get my line in him A E A E Skipped church one Sunday rowed out and throw'd in my line A E A E B Jim took that hook pole and me right over the side A E A E Went driftin' down past old tires and rusty cans of beer A E A E B The angel of the lake whispered in my ear A E "Before you chose your wish son A E You better think first A C#m A B E With every wish there comes a curse" I fell in love with beautiful Doreen 2. She was the prettiest thing this old town'd ever seen I courted her and I made her mine But I grew jealous whenever another man'd, come walkin' down the line And my jealousy made me treat her mean and cruel She sighed, "Bobby oh Bobby you're such a fool Don't you know before you choose your wish You'd better think first 'Cause with every wish there comes a curse" These days I sit around and laugh at the many rivers I've crossed 3. But on the far banks there's always another forest where a man can get lost Well there in the high trees love's bluebird glides Guiding us 'cross to another river on the other side And there someone is waitin' with a look in her eyes And though my heart's grown weary and more than a little bit shy Tonight I'll drink from her waters to quench my thirst And leave the angels to worry With every wish...
