“Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen

“You end up like a dog that’s been beat too much till you spend half your life just covering up.”

I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.

Come back home to the refinery

Went down to see my V.A. man
He said “Son, don’t you understand”

I had a brother at Khe Sanh fighting off the Viet Cong
They’re still there, he’s all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I’m ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain’t got nowhere to go
