Newsletter (+ bonus tracks): Born to Run is a song by American singer songwriter Bruce Springsteen, and the title song of his album Born to Run. Upon its release, music critic Robert Christgau took note of its wall of sound influence and called it the fulfillment of everything Be My Baby was about and lots more. Written at 7½ West End Court in Long Branch, New Jersey in early 1974, the song was Bruce Springsteens final attempt to become successful. The prior year, Springsteen had released two albums to critical acclaim but with little commercial movement. Written in the first person, the song is a love letter to a girl named Wendy, for whom the hot-rod-riding protagonist seems to possess the passion to love, just not the patience. However, Springsteen has noted that it has a much simpler core: getting out of Freehold. U.S. Route 9 is mentioned from the lyric sprung from cages out on Highway 9. In his 1996 book Songs, Springsteen relates that while the beginning of the song was written on guitar around the opening riff, the songs writing was finished on piano, the instrument that most of the Born to Run album was composed on. The song was recorded in the key of E major. In the period prior to the release of Born to Run Springsteen was becoming well-known (especially in his native northeast) for his epic live shows. Born to Run joined his concert repertoire well before the release of the album, being performed in concert by May 1974, if not earlier. The first recording of the song was made by Allan Clarke of the British group The Hollies, although its release was delayed, only appearing after Springsteens own now-famous version. Lyrics: In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines Sprung from cages out on highway 9, Chrome wheeled, fuel injected, and steppin out over the line Oh-oh, Baby this town rips the bones from your back Its a death trap, its a suicide rap We gotta get out while were young `Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run yes, girl we were Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend I want to guard your dreams and visions Just wrap your legs round these velvet rims and strap your hands cross my engines Together we could break this trap Well run till we drop, baby well never go back Oh-oh, will you walk with me out on the wire `Cause baby Im just a scared and lonely rider But I gotta know how it feels I want to know if love is wild Babe I want to know if love is real Oh, can you show me Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors And the boys try to look so hard The amusement park rises bold and stark Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight In an everlasting kiss The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive Everybodys out on the run tonight but theres no place left to hide Together Wendy we can live with the sadness Ill love you with all the madness in my soul Oh-oh, someday girl I dont know when were gonna get to that place Where we really wanna go and well walk in the sun But till then tramps like us baby we were born to run Oh honey, tramps like us baby we were born to run Come on with me, tramps like us baby we were born to run born to run lyrics born to run song born to run bruce springsteen born to run movie born to run book born to run album born to run springsteen born to run youtube watch the video:
