[Springsteen Video] – Maria’s Bed 20.07.2013


Bruce Springsteen played Maria’s Bed during his acoustic pre show in Belfast on July 20th 2013.


Been on a barbed wire highway 40 days and nights
I ain’t complain’n that’s my job and it suits me right
I got a sweet soul fever rushin’ around my head
I’m gonna sleep tonight in Maria’s bed

Got on a dead man’s suit and smilin’ skull ring
Lucky graveyard boots and a song to sing
I keep my heart in my work, my troubles in my head
And I keep my soul in Maria’s bed

I been up on sugar mountain, ‘cross the sweet blue sea
I walked the valley of love and tears and mystery
I got run out’a luck and gave myself up for dead
Then I drank the cool clear waters from Maria’s bed

She give me candy stick kisses ‘neath a wolf dog moon
One sweet breath and she’ll take you, mister, to the upper room

I was burned by the angels, sold wings of lead
Then I fell in the roses and sweet salvation of Maria’s bed

I been out in the desert, doin’ my time
Siftin’ through the dust for fools gold, lookin’ for a sign
Holy man said, “Hold on, brother, there’s a light up ahead.”
Ain’t nothin’ like the light that shines on me in Maria’s bed

Well I take my blessings at the riverhead
I’m living in the light of Maria’s bed

[Springsteen Video] – Jesus Was An Only Son

Bruce Springsteen played a great live version of Jesus Was An Only Son for the WH1 Storytellers.



Jesus was an only son
As he walked up Calvary Hill
His mother Mary walking beside him
In the path where his blood spilled
Jesus was an only son
In the hills of Nazareth
As he lay reading the Psalms of David
At his mother’s feet

A mother prays, “Sleep tight, my child, sleep well
For I’ll be at your side
That no shadow, no darkness, no tolling bell,
Shall pierce your dreams this night.”

In the garden at Gethsemane
He prayed for the life he’d never live,
He beseeched his Heavenly Father to remove
The cup of death from his lips

Now there’s a loss that can never be replaced,
A destination that can never be reached,
A light you’ll never find in another’s face,
A sea whose distance cannot be breached

Well Jesus kissed his mother’s hands
Whispered, “Mother, still your tears,
For remember the soul of the universe
Willed a world and it appeared.”

Dream Baby Dream


Da oggi, primo venerdì dell’anno, vorrei iniziare una serie settimanale di post video.

Il primo è questo confronto fra la versione di Dream Baby Dream con cui Springsteen chiudeva i concerti nel 2005 durante il tour di Devils & Dust e l’originale suonata dai Suicide.

Secondo me non c’è gara. Voi che versione preferite?

Long Time Comin’ 24.07.2005

Long Time Comin’ by Bruce Springsteen

Out where the creek turns shallow and sandy
And the moon comes skimmin’ away the stars
The wind in the mesquite comes rushin’ over the hilltops
Straight into my arms
Straight into my arms

I’m riding hard carryin’ a catch of roses
And a fresh map that I made
Tonight I’m gonna get birth naked and bury my old soul
And dance on its grave
And dance on its grave

It’s been a long time comin’, my dear
It’s been a long time comin’ but now it’s here

Well my daddy he was just a stranger
Lived in a hotel downtown
When I was a kid he was just somebody
Somebody I’d see around
Somebody I’d see around

Now down below and pullin’ on my shirt
I got some kids of my own
Well if I had one wish in this god forsaken world, kids
It’d be that your mistakes would be your own
Yea your sins would be your own

It’s been a long time comin’, my dear
It’s been a long time comin’ but now it’s here

Out ‘neath the arms of Cassiopeia
Where the sword of Orion sweeps
It’s me and you, Rosie, cracklin’ like crossed wires
And you breathin’ in your sleep
You breathin’ in your sleep

Well there’s just a spark of campfire burning
Two kids in a sleeping bag beside
I Reach ‘neath your shirt, lay my hands across your belly
And feel another one kickin’ inside
I ain’t gonna fuck it up this time

It’s been a long time comin’, my dear
It’s been a long time comin’ but now it’s here
It’s been a long time comin’, my dear
It’s been a long time comin’ but now it’s here

All The Way Home 06.06.2005


Come è possibile che siano passati già sei anni dal mio tour preferito?

I know what it’s like to have failed, baby
With the whole world lookin’ on
I know what it’s like to have soared
And come crashin’ like a drunk on a bar room floor

Now you got no reason to trust me
My confidence is a little rusty
But if you don’t feel like bein’ alone
Baby, I could walk you all the way home

Well now our old fears and failures
Baby, they do linger
Like the shadow of that ring
That was on your finger
Those days they’ve come and gone
Baby, I could walk you all the way home

Love leaves nothin’ but shadows and vapor
We go on, as is our sad nature
Now it’s some old Stones’
Song the band is trashin’
But if you feel like dancin’
Baby, I’m askin’

It’s comin’ on closing time
Bartender, he’s ringin’ last call
These days I don’t stand on pride
And I ain’t afraid to take a fall

So if you’re seein’ what you like
Maybe your first choice he’s gone
Well that’s all right
Baby, I could walk you all the way home

Baby, I could walk you all the way home
