Wow! I've got to hand it to you clean. I know a lot of rare unreleased Springsteen songs(and have several booteg recordings) but that was a new one on me. i did some research on it and it is indeed a song written by Bruce. It was when he was in a bar band with his Jersey buddies called Steel Mill. They never recorded any music but they did play that song live at least once in 1970 (3 years before Bruce and the E Streeters started) and there is someone out there who has a cassette recording of that show. It has not appeared in any of the regular Springsteen bootleg communities out there but I will keep an eye out for it now thanks to you! And yes, that would have been a wild connection!

And I get another chance in this "state" to post yet another favorite song by another favorite band: "Let's put our heads together, start a new country up Underneath the river bed we burned the river down This is where they walked, swam, hunted, danced and sang Take a picture here, take a souvenir..."

I've got a wife in Cleveland and she hates my guts And everything about her's a reflection of what drove me nuts I stopped to buy a beer inside the trading post and lost my keys that somber wooden indian by the door began to laugh at me

Toledo - Elvis Costello Good one clean! How was your Christmas? And I've always enjoyed Steve Forbert's music but never did see him perform live. Sounds like a good time.
It was out at the crossroads, down round Willow bank Seen a Buick with Ohio plates behind the wheel was Frank Well I chased him through them county roads till a sign said Canadian border five miles from here I pulled over the side of the highway and watched his taillights disappear
