See, I've been here for 28 years
Poundin' sweat beneath these wheels
We tattooed lines beneath our skin
No surrender, my Bobby Jean

See, I've been here for 28 years
Poundin' sweat beneath these wheels
We tattooed lines beneath our skin
No surrender, my Bobby Jean

And we've been burned by all our fears
Just from growin' up around here
Our father's factories marked our cards
While Eden burned against the stars

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
You're the only one who will

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

And now I drive the one-oh-one
On a California night
And I'm amazed at all the stars
Beneath that old Hollywood sign

And they waltz the ballet up the boulevard 
To a place we never kept
And I'm not sure if we belong here
If I never really left or if I can go home

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

No retreat, no regrets
No retreat, no regrets
No retreat, no regrets
Meet me by the river's edge

No retreat, no regrets
No retreat, no regrets
No retreat, no regrets
Meet me by the river's edge
