Bruce Springsteen

57 Channels (And Nothin? On) – Bruce Springsteen

I bought a bourgeois house in the Hollywood hills
With a trunkload of hundred thousand dollar bills
Man came by to hook up my cable TV
We settled in for the night my baby and me
We switched ?round and ?round ?til half-past down
There was fifty-seven channels and notin? on

Well now home entertainment was my baby?s wish
So I hopped into town for a satellite dish
I tied it to the top of my Japanese car
I came home and I pointed it out into the stars
A message came back from the great beyond
There?s fifty-seven channnels and nothin? on

Well we might? a made some friends with some billionaires
We might? a got all nice and friendly
If we?d made it upstairs
All I got was a note that said “Bye-bye John
Our love is fifty-seven channels and nothin? on”

So I bought a .44 magnum it was solid steel cast
And in the blessed name of Elvis well I just let it blast
?Til my TV lay in pieces there at my feet
And they bsted me for disturbin? the almighty peace
Judge said “What you got in your defense son ?”
“Fifty-seven channels and nothin? on”
I can see by your eyes friend you?re just about gone
Fifty-seven channels and nothin? on
Fifty-seven channels and nothin?…

Walk Like A Man – Bruce Springsteen

I remember how rough your hand felt on mine
On my wedding day
And the tears cried on my shoulder
I couldn?t turn away
Well so much has happened to me
That I don?t understand
All I can think of is being five years old following behind you at the beach
Tracing your footprints in the sand
Trying to walk like a man

By Our Lady of the Roses
We lived in the shadow of the elms
I remember ma draggin? me and my sister up the street to the church
Whenever she heard those wedding bells
Well would they ever look so happy again
The handsome groom and his bride
As they stepped into that long black limousine
For their mystery ride
Well tonight you step away from me
And alone at the altar I stand
And as I watch my bride coming down the aisle I pray
For the strength to walk like a man

Well now the years have gone and I?ve grown
From that seed you?ve sown
But I didn?t think there?d be so many steps
I?d have to learn on my own
Well I was young and I didn?t know what to do
When I saw your best steps stolen away from you
Now I?ll do what I can
I?ll walk like a man
And I?ll keep on walkin?

Jackson Cage – Bruce Springsteen

Driving home she grabs something to eat
Turns a corner and drives down her street
Into a row of houses she just melts away
Like the scenery in another man?s play
Into a house where the blinds are closed
To keep from seeing things she don?t wanna know
She pulls the blinds and looks out on the street
The cool of the night takes the edge off the heat

In the Jackson Cage
Down in the Jackson Cage
You can try with all your might
But you?re reminded every night
That you been judged and handed life
Down in the Jackson Cage

Every day ends in wasted motion
Just crossed swords on the killing floor
To settle back is to settle without knowing
The hard edge that you?re settling for
Because there?s always just one more day
And it?s always gonna be that way
Little girl you?ve been down here so long
I can tell by the way that you move you belong to

The Jackson Cage
Down in Jackson Cage
And it don?t matter just what you say
Are you tough enough to play the game they play
Or will you just do your time and fade away
Down into the Jackson Cage

Baby there?s nights when I dream of a better world
But I wake up so downhearted girl
I see you feeling so tired and confused
I wonder what it?s worth to me or you
Just waiting to see some sun
Never knowing if that day will ever come
Left alone standing out on the street
Till you become the hand that turns the key down in

Jackson Cage
Down in Jackson Cage
Well darlin? can you understand
The way that they will turn a man
Into a stranger to waste away
Down in the Jackson Cage

Galveston Bay – Bruce Springsteen

For fifteen years Le Bin Son
Fought side by side with the Americans
In the mountains and deltas of Vietnam
In ?75 Saigon fell and he left his command
And brought his family to the promised land

Seabrook, Texas and the small towns in the Gulf of Mexico
It was delta country and reminded him of home
He worked as a machinist, put his money away
And bought a shrimp boat with his cousin
And together they harvested Galveston Bay

In the mornin? ?fore the sun come up
He?d kiss his sleepin? daughter
Steer out through the channel
And cast his nets into the water

Billy Sutter fought with Charlie Company
In the highlands of Quang Tri
He was wounded in the battle of Chu Lai
Shipped home in ?68

There he married and worked the gulf fishing grounds
In a boat that?d been his father?s
In the morning he?d kiss his sleeping son
And cast his nets into the water

Billy sat in front of his TV as the South fell
And the communists rolled into Saigon
He and his friends watched as the refugees came
Settled on the same streets and worked the coast they?d grew up on
Soon in the bars around the harbor was talk
Of America for Americans
Someone said “You want ?em out, you got to burn ?em out.”
And brought in the Texas Klan

One humid Texas night there were three shadows on the harbor
Come to burn the Vietnamese boats into the sea
In the fire?s light shots rang out
Two Texans lay dead on the ground
Le stood with a pistol in his hand

A jury acquitted him in self-defense
As before the judge he did stand
But as Le walked down the courthouse steps
Billy said “My friend you?re a dead man.”

One late summer night Le stood watch along the waterside
Billy stood in the shadows
His K-bar knife in his hand
And the moon slipped behind the clouds
Le lit a cigarette, the bay was still as glass
As he walked by Billy stuck his knife into his pocket
Took a breath and let him pass

In the early darkness Billy rose up
Went into the kitchen for a drink of water
Kissed his sleeping wife
Headed into the channel
And cast his nets into the water
Of Galveston Bay

Bruce Springsteen – Fade Away

Well now you say you’ve found another man who does things to you that I can’t
And that no matter what I do it’s all over now
between me and you girl
But I can’t believe what you say
No I can’t believe what you say
’cause baby

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna fade away
Oh I don’t wanna fade away
Tell me what can I do what can I say
Cause darlin’ I don’t wanna fade away

Well now you say that you’ve made up your mind
it’s been such a long, long time since it’s been good with us
And that somewhere back along the line you lost your love and I lost your trust
Now rooms that once were so bright are filled with the coming night, darlin’

(Chorus)

You say it’s not easy for you
And that you’ve been so lonely
While other girls go out doing what they want to do
You say that you miss the nights whe we’d go out dancing
The days when you and I walked as two
Well girl I miss them too
Oh I swear that I do
Oh girl

Now baby I don’t wanna be just another useless memory holding you tight
Or just some other ghost out on the street to whom you stop and politely speak
when you pass on by vanishing into the night
left to vanish into the night
No baby

(Chorus)

Bruce Springsteen – Factory

Early in the morning factory whistle blows,
Man rises from bed and puts on his clothes,
Man takes his lunch, walks out in the morning light,
It?s the working, the working, just the working life.

Through the mansions of fear, through the mansions of pain,
I see my daddy walking through them factory gates in the rain,
Factory takes his hearing, factory gives him life,
The working, the working, just the working life.

End of the day, factory whistle cries,
Men walk through these gates with death in their eyes.
And you just better believe, boy,
somebody?s gonna get hurt tonight,
It?s the working, the working, just the working life. Check out more Lyrics from Bruce Springsteen.

Cadillac Ranch – Bruce Springsteen

Well, there she sits buddy justa gleaming in the sun
There to greet a working man when his day is done
I?m gonna pack my pa and I?m gonna pack my aunt
I?m gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch

Eldorado fins, whitewalls and skirts
Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth
Well buddy when I die throw my body in the back
And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark, shiny and black
Open up your engines let ?em roar
Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

James Dean in that Mercury ?49
Junior Johnson runnin? thru the woods of Caroline
Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans-Am
All gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark, shiny and black
Open up them engines let ?em roar
Tearing up the highway just a big old dinosaur

Hey, little girlie in the blue jeans so tight
Drivin? alone through the Wisconsin night
You?re my last love baby you?re my last chance
Don?t let ?em take me to the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark, shiny and black
Pulled up to my house today
Came and took my little girl away
