I wake up in the morning, just glad my boots are on

Instead of empty in the whispering grasses,

Down the Five at Forest Lawn

On the set, the makeup girl brings me two raw eggs and a shot of gin

When I give it all up for that little blue pill

That promises to bring it all back to you again

 

Ride me down easy, ride me down easy friend

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again

 

Here in the canyons above Sunset, the desert don’t give up the fight

A coyote with someone’s Chihuahua in its teeth skitters ‘cross my veranda in the

night

Some lost sheep from Oklahoma sips her Mojito down at the Whiskey Bar

Smiles and says she thinks she remembers me from that commercial with the

credit card

 

Hell these days there ain’t no more, now there’s just again

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again

 

Sundays I take my El Camino, throw my saddle in and go

East to the desert where the charros, they still ride and rope

Our American brothers cross the wire and bring the old ways with them

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again

 

Once I was shot by John Wayne, yea, it was towards the end

That one scene's bought me a thousand drinks, set me up and I’ll tell it for you

friend

 

Here’s to the cowboys, and the riders in the whirlwind

Tonight the western stars are shining bright again

And the western stars are shining bright again

 

Tonight the riders on Sunset are smothered in the Santa Ana winds

The western stars are shining bright again

C’mon and ride me down easy, ride me down easy friend

‘Cause tonight the western stars are shining bright again

 

I woke up this morning just glad my boots were on

Hello Sunshine

Had enough of heartbreak and pain

Had a little sweet spot for the rain

For the rain and skies of gray

Hello sunshine won’t you stay

You know I always liked my walking shoes

But you can get a little too fond of the blues

You walk too far, you walk away

Hello sunshine won’t you stay

You know I always loved a lonely town

Those empty streets, no one around

You fall in love with lonely, you end up that way

Hello sunshine won’t you stay

You know I always liked that empty road

No place to be and miles to go

But miles to go is miles away

Hello sunshine won’t you stay

Miles to go is miles away

Hello sunshine won’t you stay

Hello sunshine won’t you stay

Hello sunshine

Darkness On The Edge Of Town

Darkness on the Edge of Town: Paramount Theatre, Asbury Park - Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band's intimate full album performance of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ was recorded at Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre in 2009. This program, filmed without an audience, successfully recreates the stark atmosphere of the original release.

Springsteen on Dylan

Bob Dylan is the father of my country. Highway 61 Revisited and Bringing It All Back Home were not only great records, but they were the first time I can remember being exposed to a truthful vision of the place I lived. The darkness and light were all there, the veil of illusion and deception ripped aside. He put his boot on the stultifying politeness and daily routine that covered corruption and decay. The world he described was all on view, in my little town, and spread out over the television that beamed into our isolated homes, but it went uncommented on and silently tolerated. He inspired me and gave me hope. He asked the questions everyone else was too frightened to ask, especially to a fifteen-year-old: “How does it feel… to be on your own?” A seismic gap had opened up between generations and you suddenly felt orphaned, abandoned amid the flow of history, your compass spinning, internally homeless. Bob pointed true north and served as a beacon to assist you in making your way through the new wilderness America had become. He planted a flag, wrote the songs, sang the words that were essential to the times, to the emotional and spiritual survival of so many young Americans at that moment.

I had the opportunity to sing “The Times They Are A-Changin’ ” for Bob when he received the Kennedy Center Honors. We were alone together for a brief moment walking down a back stairwell when he thanked me for being there and said, “If there’s anything I can ever do for you…” I thought, “Are you kidding me?” and answered, “It’s already been done.”
