Maria's Bed Lyrics - Bruce Springsteen
Review The Song (1)
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 soul fever rushin' around 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 out'a 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
Searchin' 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 riverhead
I'm living in the light of Maria's bed

It seems like this song could be a first-person version of the Allman Brother's "Melissa." Of course the Allman Brothers can't match the brilliant imagery that the Boss manages to throw effortlessly into every song. And how easy it is to relate to the sentiment of running around in the wicked world, dusty and cold, and on your way home getting a sweet soft fever on your way to your lady's bed.
