dead man walkin’ lyrics – bruce springsteen

there’s a pale horse comin’

i’m gonna ride it

i’ll rise in the morning

my fate decided

i’m a dead man walkin’

i’m a dead man walkin’

in st. james parish

i was born and christened

now i’ve got my story

mister no need for you to listen

it’s just a dead man talkin’

once i had a job i had a girl

but between our dreams and actions

lies this world

in the deep forest

their blood and tears rushed over me

all i could feel was the drugs and the shotgun

and my fear up inside of me

like a dead man talkin’

‘neath a summer sky my eyes went black

sister i won’t ask for forgiveness

my sins are all i have

now the clouds above my prison

move slowly across the sky

there’s a new day comin’

and my dreams are full tonight
