Bruce Springsteen

A New Box Set Holds A Springsteen Holy Grail

I cannot explain why, but Bruce Springsteen's song made my eyes moist with tears. The title of the song is "The River".
Old people are easily moved to tears.

"They bring you up to do like your daddy done
"And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
"I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
Well mister they vanished right into the air
Now I just act like I don't remember
Mary acts like she don't care
"Is a dream a lie if it don't come true
Or is it something worse "
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN LYRICS
