Racing In The Street 19.09.1978

Springsteen Live in Passaic is THE must have bootleg.

Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band played at Capitol Theatre.

Racing In The Street was only played the first night.


I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor
She’s waiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the Seven-Eleven store
Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he rides with me from town to town
We only run for the money got no strings attached
We shut ’em up and then we shut ’em down

Tonight, tonight the strip’s just right
I wanna blow ’em off in my first heat
Summer’s here and the time is right
For goin’ racin’ in the street
