Maria's Bed

This song is by Bruce Springsteen and appears on the album Devils & Dust (2005).

Been on a barbed wire highway 40 days and nights
I ain't complainin', it's my job and it suits me right
I got a sweet soft fever rushin' 'round my head
I'm gonna sleep tonight in Maria's bed

Got on a dead man suit and smilin' skull ring
Lucky graveyard boots and a song to sing
I keep my heart in my work but trouble's in my head
And I keep my soul in Maria's bed

I been up on sugar mountain, 'cross the sweet blue seas
I walked the valley of love and tears and mystery
I got run outta luck and give myself up for dead
And I drank the cool clear waters from Maria's bed

She give me candy stick kisses 'neath a wolf dog moon
One sweet breath and she'll take you, mister, to the upper room
I was burned by the angels, sold wings of lead
Then I fell in the roses and sweet salvation of Maria's bed

I been out in the desert, yeah, doin' my time
Siftin' through the dust for fools gold, lookin' for a sign
Holy man said "hold on brother, there's a light up ahead"
Ain't nothing like a light that shines on me in Maria's bed

Well, I'll take my blessings at the river head
I'm living in the light of Maria's bed
