  4. and You've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above and Like a river that don’t know where it’s flowing I took a wrong turn and I just kept going and It was a small town bank It was a mess Well, I had a gun You know the rest and They prosecuted some poor sucker in these United States For teaching that man descended from the apes They coulda settled that case without a fuss or fight If they’d seen me chasin’ you, sugar, through the jungle last night and They died to get here a hundred years ago, they’re dyin’ now The hands that built this country we’re always trying to keep down and If pa’s eyes were windows into a world so deadly and true Ma, you couldn’t stop me from looking but you kept me from crawlin’ through and 41 shots—and we’ll take that ride Across this bloody river to the other side 41 shots—my boots caked in mud We’re baptized in these waters and in each other’s blood and You end up like a dog that’s been beat too much Until you spend half your life just covering up and As I lift my groceries into my car I turn back for a moment and catch a smile That blows this whole fucking place apart and Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see Trying to learn to walk like the heroes we thought we had to be And after all this time, to find we're just like all the rest can still–can now—write a verse like this: Now the pool's filled with empty, eight-foot deep Got dandelions growin' up through the cracks in the concrete Chain-link fence half-rusted away Got a sign, says, "Children, be careful how you play" Your lipstick taste and your whispered secret promised I'd never tell A half-drunk beer and your breath in my ear At the Moonlight Motel And the only thing that could be even better than all this? Is that he says he's going into the studio with the E Street Band soon for a new album Well done, man !! It shows what a one kind of artist Bruce is. Thanks for reminding us this fact.
  5. Most of the Grammy academy voters have no clue. It is sometimes painful and poor.
  6. What a beautiful setting ! What beautiful narrative introductions ! What a beautiful performance ! Simply, what a beautiful movie ! I love it !!!! Thanks Bruce !

  8. I would rescue "Tracks" and "The Promise". I love this alternative song trip.
  9. Bruce's classic masterpiece albums ! The triple crown: Born To Run Nebraska Darkness On The Edge Of Town Followed by the following masterpieces: The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle Born In The USA Tunnel Of Love The River The Rising Magic Wrecking Ball Western Stars If "The Promise" would be considered as an album and not as a sampling of outtakes, it would belong to the masterpiece category.
  10. Happy Birthday Bruce ! Thanks for all your classic albums and album masterpieces ! Thanks for your unbelievable fantastic songwriting ! Thanks for all your mind blowing concerts ! Simply, thanks for the ultimate ride through all the decades ! I wish you health and happiness ! Long may you run !
