Springsteen, Bruce - Harry's Place Lyrics




Downtown hipsters drinking up the drug line
Down in the kitchen working in the coal mine
Got a special sin, mister, you can't quite confess
Messy little problem, maybe baby need a new dress
Razor-back diamond you shine too hard
Need a hammer help you handle little trouble in your backyard
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)

When Harry speaks it's Harry's streets, in Harry's house it's Harry's rules
You don't wanna be around, brother, when Harry schools
It's Harry's car, Harry's wife, Harry's dogs run Harry's town
Your blood and money spit shines Harry's crown
You don't fuck with Harry's money, you don't fuck Harry's girls
These are the rules, this is the world
(When you bring it on down to Harry's Place)
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)

You need a little shot of something to improve your health
A taste of that one little weakness you allow yourself
You're looking for the key of that box you locked yourself in
Just step up to the line and be one of Harry's friends

Shithole on the corner, no light, no sign
Nobody on the street 'cept the deaf, dumb, and blind
Mayor Conner's on the couch, Father McGowan's at the bar
Chief Horton's at the door checking who the fuck you are

Seesaw Bobby dressed in drag and Mr. Nice
Carry me into the back room and dim the lights
My arms strapped to the table, a thousand angels spinning up the room
A voice whispers in my ear, "We do what we must do"
(When we bring it on down to Harry's Place)
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)

Nobody knows his number, nobody knows his name
If he didn't exist, it'd all go on just the same
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)
(Bring it on down to Harry's Place)

Springsteen, Bruce Harry's Place Comments
  1. Donelle Feltham

    If you’re gonna say what’s with all the swear words , then you either don’t listen to Bruce much, because if you did you would no this is nothing unusual for Bruce. He’s not trying too shock you , he writes how he talks and visa versa and to be honest this 1 is very tame. Go and watch, Reno on the Devils and the Dust Album. Which got a sticker slapped on it because it was deemed not recommended for those I think it was under 18 but it could have been 15. Which ever it doesn’t matter, as any true, Bruce Springsteen fan and lover of his music will tell you the very same thing. So if you’re going to be a fan of Bruce you better get used to a few F bombs here and there.🎼♥️🇦🇺💋🇺🇸

    Trucker Kev The Paid Tourist

    that's right I think it was one of the songs on the ghost of Tom joad he dropped a big old Fbomb

  2. The Eliot Show

    What's with all the swear words in this song ?
