It has come to my attention that you have familiarity with New Jersey.

I wake up in the morning

And I raise my weary head

I've got an old coat for a pillow

And the earth was last night's bed

I don't know where I'm going

Only God knows where I've been

I'm a devil on the run

A six gun lover

A candle in the wind, yeah



When you're brought into this world

They say you're born in sin

Well at least they gave me something

I didn't have to steal or have to win

Well, they tell me that I'm wanted

Yeah, I'm a wanted man

I'm a colt through your stable

I'm what Cain was to Abel

Mister catch me if you can



I'm going down (down) in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

I'm going out (out) in a blaze of glory

And Lord, I never drew first but I drew first blood

I'm no one's son, call me young gun



You ask about my conscience

And I offer you my soul

You ask if I'll grow to be a wise man

Well I ask if I'll grow old

You ask me if I've known love

And what it's like to sing songs in the rain

Well I've seen love come, I've seen it shot down

I've seen it die in vain



Shot down (down) in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

'Cause I'm going down (down) in a blaze of glory

Lord, I never drew first but I drew first blood

I'm the devil's son, call me young gun, na... yeah



[Guitar solo]



Each night I go to bed

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

No I ain't looking for forgiveness

But before I'm six foot deep

Lord, I gotta ask a favor

And I hope you'll understand

'Cause I've lived life to the fullest

Let this boy's die like a man

Staring down a bullet

Let me make my final stand



Shot down (down) in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

I'm going out (out) in a blaze of glory

Lord, I never drew first but I drew first blood

I'm no one's son, call me young gun

I'm a young gun, yeah

Young gun, yeah..., Young gun

Johnny works in a factory and Billy works downtown

Terry works in a rock and roll band

Lookin' for that million-dollar sound

I got a little job down in Darlington

But some nights I don't go

Some nights I go to the drive-in, or some nights I stay home

I followed that dream just like those guys do up on the screen

And I drive a Challenger down Route 9 through the dead ends and all the bad

scenes

And when the promise was broken, I cashed in a few of my dream



Well now I built that Challenger by myself

But I needed money and so I sold it

I lived a secret I should'a kept to myself

But I got drunk one night and I told it

All my life I fought this fight

The fight that no man can never win

Every day it just gets harder to live

This dream I'm believing in

Thunder Road, oh baby you were so right

Thunder Road there's something dyin' on the highway tonight



I won big once and I hit the coast

But somehow I paid the big cost

Inside I felt like I was carryin' the broken spirits

Of all the other ones who lost

When the promise is broken you go on living

But it steals something from down in your soul

Like when the truth is spoken and it don't make no difference

Something in your heart goes cold

I followed that dream through the southwestern trucks

That dead ends in two-bit bars

And when the promise was broken I was far away from home

Sleepin' in the back seat of a borrowed car

Thunder Road, for the lost lovers and all the fixed games

Thunder Road, for the tires rushing by in the rain

Thunder Road, Billy and me we'd always say

According to itunes I have 11 Springsteen albums and no Bon Jovi if that says anything.



Four of those are "Tracks" though.

Got no time for the corner boys

Down in the street makin' all that noise

Don't want no whores on Eighth Avenue

Cause tonight I'm gonna be with you



Cause tonight I'm gonna take that ride

Across the river to the Jersey side

Take my baby to the carnival

And I'll take you on all the rides



Down the shore everything's alright

You with your baby on a Saturday night

Don't you know that all my dreams come true

When I'm walkin' down the street with you



Sing sha la la la la sha la la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la sha la la la la la

I'm in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la la sha la la la la la yeah yeah yeah

Sha la la la la sha la la la la la



You know she thrills me with all her charms

When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms

My little angel gives me everything

I know someday that she'll wear my ring



So don't bother me cause I got no time

I'm on my way to see that girl of mine

Nothin' else matters in this whole wide world

When you're in love with a Jersey girl


Sing sha la la la sha la la la la la yeah yeah

Sha la la sha la la sha la la la la

I'm in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la sha la la la la la la yeah yeah

Sha la la sha la la sha la la la la la



And I call your name, I can't sleep at night



Sha la la la sha la la la la la la la la yeah

Sha la la la la sha la la la la

I'm in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la yeah, don't bother me just ain't got no time

Sha la la la la la la la la

I'm in love, I'm in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la sha la la sha la la la la la

If I am not mistake (and I often am), Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen covered Jersey Girl. I am sure The Boss did, less sure about pretty boy with the hair.

oooh I really like Tom Waits. I remember from time to time to pick up one of his albums, but I always forget to when I'm at a music store. I keep meaning to pick up swordfishtrombones.

So, we're listening to the boss and I heard:

"we pulled 'til it grew tighter around our necks"

and I thought he said "we poured some liquid Tide around our necks"



d'oh

Tom Waits is the man. My daughter got her name from a Tom Waits song.



Have you seen "At play in the Fields of the Lord?" He was great in that.

Springsteen and Waits mentioned in the same post? I think I'm going to be sick.



What's next - Nick Cave and Rod Stewart?

*starts listening to 'Oily Night' to get rid of the pain*
