With Every Wish - Bruce Springsteen

| E | E | E | E

Ol' catfish in the lake we called him Big Jim

When I was a kid my only wish ws 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 choose 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
She was the prettiest thing this old town'd ever seen
  A        E         A        E
I courted her and I made her mine
            A               E       A
But I grew jealous whenever another man'd
              E        B
Come walkin' down the line
           A             E         A           E
And my jealousy made me treat her hard and cruel
              A        E           A    E B
She sighed, "Bobby oh Bobby you're such a fool.
                          A           E
Don't you know before you choose your wish
       A            E
You'd better think first
             A    C#m        A     B  E     | E |
'Cause with every wish there comes a curse."

These days I sit around and laugh at the many rivers I've crossed
But on the far banks there's always another forest where a man can get lost
     A            E                 A         E
Well there in the high trees love's bluebird glides
            A         E               A   E     B
Guiding us 'cross to another river on the other side
             A       E               A          E
And there someone is waitin' with a look in her eyes
               A            E
And though my heart's grown weary
                A      E   B
And more than a little bit shy
              A              E         A         E
Tonight I'll drink from her waters to quench my thirst

And leave the angels  to worry
     A     C#m 
With every wish
