“And Sally said, Sally said.
I can’t take no more regret.
It cut us deep, into our souls.
Came and climbed into our bed.
And Sally said, Sally said.
Meet me by the River’s edge.
We’re going to wash these sins away.
Or else we won’t come back again.
You know I had these ballroom dreams.
That, as a child, came to me.
I was a boy in Grandma’s arms.
A mother’s pride and a wounded heart.
And I was full with fiery wonder.
You wore Audrey Hepburn pearls.
You were the only one who understood me then and the only one who will.“
~Meet me by the river’s edge,
The Gaslight Anthem, The ’59 Sound
Maybe one of my top 5 TGA songs….does a wonderful job capturing the rush of desperation, the get-out-of-this-town yearning that makes you need to run.
