"Two For The Road" as written by Leslie Bricusse and Henry N. Mancini....
It's one for the money and one for the show
I got one kiss for you honey so come on let's go
I didn't see it coming but girl now I know
It takes one for the running but two for the road

One thousand dreams whispered in the dark
But a dream's just a dream in one empty heart
It takes more than one to rev it up and go
So let's get it running, we're two for the road

Two one-way tickets and a diamond ring
Hell it don't matter what the rain might bring
When this world treats you hard and cold
I'll stand beside you, we're two for the road

When you're alone my love'll shine the light
Through the dark and starless night
I'll hold you close and never let you go
C'mon now girl 'cause we're two for the road
Well it's two to get ready, babe, c'mon let's go
Me and you, girl, we're two for the road

    General CommentAnother fantastic song from the 3rd Disc of Tracks. Typical Springsteen road imagery, only this time applied to the journey of marriage instead of simple escapism in his earlier compositions. An amazing, amazing piece of music.
