I wake up in the morning<br><br>
And I raise my weary head<br><br>
I've got an old coat for a pillow<br><br>
And the earth was last night's bed<br><br>
I don't know where I'm going<br><br>
Only God knows where I've been<br><br>
I'm a devil on the run<br><br>
A six gun lover<br><br>
A candle in the wind, yeah<br><br><br><br>
When you're brought into this world<br><br>
They say you're born in sin<br><br>
Well at least they gave me something<br><br>
I didn't have to steal or have to win<br><br>
Well, they tell me that I'm wanted<br><br>
Yeah, I'm a wanted man<br><br>
I'm a colt through your stable<br><br>
I'm what Cain was to Abel<br><br>
Mister catch me if you can<br><br><br><br>
I'm going down (down) in a blaze of glory<br><br>
Take me now but know the truth<br><br>
I'm going out (out) in a blaze of glory<br><br>
And Lord, I never drew first but I drew first blood<br><br>
I'm no one's son, call me young gun<br><br><br><br>
You ask about my conscience<br><br>
And I offer you my soul<br><br>
You ask if I'll grow to be a wise man<br><br>
Well I ask if I'll grow old<br><br>
You ask me if I've known love<br><br>
And what it's like to sing songs in the rain<br><br>
Well I've seen love come, I've seen it shot down<br><br>
I've seen it die in vain<br><br><br><br>
Shot down (down) in a blaze of glory<br><br>
Take me now but know the truth<br><br>
'Cause I'm going down (down) in a blaze of glory<br><br>
Lord, I never drew first but I drew first blood<br><br>
I'm the devil's son, call me young gun, na... yeah<br><br><br><br><i>[Guitar solo]</i><br><br><br><br>
Each night I go to bed<br><br>
I pray the Lord my soul to keep<br><br>
No I ain't looking for forgiveness<br><br>
But before I'm six foot deep<br><br>
Lord, I gotta ask a favor<br><br>
And I hope you'll understand<br><br>
'Cause I've lived life to the fullest<br><br>
Let this boy's die like a man<br><br>
Staring down a bullet<br><br>
Let me make my final stand<br><br><br><br>
Shot down (down) in a blaze of glory<br><br>
Take me now but know the truth<br><br>
I'm going out (out) in a blaze of glory<br><br>
Lord, I never drew first but I drew first blood<br><br>
I'm no one's son, call me young gun<br><br>
I'm a young gun, yeah<br><br>
Young gun, yeah..., Young gun

Johnny works in a factory and Billy works downtown<br><br>
Terry works in a rock and roll band<br><br>
Lookin' for that million-dollar sound<br><br>
I got a little job down in Darlington<br><br>
But some nights I don't go<br><br>
Some nights I go to the drive-in, or some nights I stay home<br><br>
I followed that dream just like those guys do up on the screen<br><br>
And I drive a Challenger down Route 9 through the dead ends and all the bad<br><br>
scenes<br><br>
And when the promise was broken, I cashed in a few of my dream<br><br><br><br>
Well now I built that Challenger by myself<br><br>
But I needed money and so I sold it<br><br>
I lived a secret I should'a kept to myself<br><br>
But I got drunk one night and I told it<br><br>
All my life I fought this fight<br><br>
The fight that no man can never win<br><br>
Every day it just gets harder to live<br><br>
This dream I'm believing in<br><br>
Thunder Road, oh baby you were so right<br><br>
Thunder Road there's something dyin' on the highway tonight<br><br><br><br>
I won big once and I hit the coast<br><br>
But somehow I paid the big cost<br><br>
Inside I felt like I was carryin' the broken spirits<br><br>
Of all the other ones who lost<br><br>
When the promise is broken you go on living<br><br>
But it steals something from down in your soul<br><br>
Like when the truth is spoken and it don't make no difference<br><br>
Something in your heart goes cold<br><br>
I followed that dream through the southwestern trucks<br><br>
That dead ends in two-bit bars<br><br>
And when the promise was broken I was far away from home<br><br>
Sleepin' in the back seat of a borrowed car<br><br>
Thunder Road, for the lost lovers and all the fixed games<br><br>
Thunder Road, for the tires rushing by in the rain<br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
Four of those are "Tracks" though.

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.
