I combed my hair till it was just right and commanded the night brigade
I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I walked on a crooked crutch

    Great rebellion song pure and simple. Wonderful imagery. "The flag of piracy flew from my mast," "I broke all the rules, strafed my old high school," and, of course, " when they said, "Come down," I threw up." Bruce took a request sign from my 10 year old daughter at a Giants Stadium show 5 years ago and played this song for her. "Talked" to her and everything..."you're 10...that means that this song was written...1/4 of a century before you were born!" Had her picture up on the screen. Real highlight for a big Springsteen fan.
