A LOVE SO FINE

Live 22 Jul 1975 version


One, two!

Well, there're sparklin' angels out on your fire-escape
They're gonna lie to your mama for you, tryin' to keep you safe
You're with them fire alley virgins on a midnight vamp
Lost your heart on Main Street to a beautiful tramp
A love so fine
Oh, that's so
You're in a love so fine (a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)

Well, rat trap's filled with soul crusaders
They're all bopping and popping and jumping
To Little Melvin and The Invaders
You're out on the floor and you can't get up
Your baby's out there dancing that Continental Strut
She looks so good, oh, she blows your mind
You're in a love so fine (a love so fine)
A love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
A love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
A love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
Sing it, band!

(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
All right, it's all right

Everybody's reeling when the band hits the ceiling
Don't you know you wanna go
Everybody's rocking when your knees start knocking
Everybody wanna go
Let's go!

Three o'clock and the bars close down
You're walking with your baby to the bad side of town
All the little kids, they're asking for her number
Calling her up, trying to drive you under
That's all right, in fact, you don't mind
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
Oh!
[Spoken:] This... could be dangerous. But we're gonna do it. Are you in there, Clarence? I think I'm going to do it! In fact, I know it! I know it! I did know it! Yeah! When you get down to this note, then... Steven! Before I found this tune... Oh, yeah! I'm with you, now! I want to tell you!
How I used to ramble
How I used to roam
But ever since I met this little girly of mine
All I got to do is stay at home

So, soothe me, baby, soothe me
Soothe me with your kindness
For, you know, your powerful loving is
Soothing to me
[Bruce Springsteen (spoken):] All right, now! Yes, we did. So say it first. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Clarence, are you with me?
[Clarence Clemons (spoken):] Yeah!
[Bruce Springsteen (spoken):] Steve, are you with me?
[Steven Van Zandt (spoken):] I'm with you, man!
[Bruce Springsteen (spoken):] Boys, are you all with me?
[Steven Van Zandt (spoken):] They're with you, man!
[Bruce Springsteen (spoken):] Max, are you with me back there? Roy, are you with me?
[Roy Bittan (spoken):] I'm with you, brother.
[Bruce Springsteen (spoken):] Are you with me, now? Are you with me out there?

Work out
Oh, baby, work out
Come on and work out
Oh, baby, work out
Let's work out, oh, yeah

Bam!

Bam!

Bam!

It make me want to...
What?
It make me want to...
It make me want to...
Steven, it makes me want to...
It make me want to shout!
It make me want to shout!
It make me want to shout!
It make me want to...
Whoa!

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
La, la, la, la, la, la
(La, la, la, la, la, la)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Work, work, work
(Work, work, work)
Work, work, work
(Work, work, work)
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh
(Whoa, oh, whoa, oh)
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh
(Whoa, oh, whoa, oh)
All right, all right
(All right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, hey!

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

That's all right
Oh, you don't mind
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
A love so fine (a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)
You're in a love so fine (you're in a love so fine)

Whoa!

Thank you! Thank you!

This concert was originally scheduled for 12 Jul 1975, but then moved forward to 11 Jul 1975. However, due to delays in completing the new album, it was first bumped back to 18 Jul 1975 and then delayed to 22 Jul 1975. Tickets for the original date (see above scan) were never used and a new set was printed for 11 Jul 1975 and then changed by hand.
