NEBRASKA

Early home demo version 2


[Spoken:] Test it. One two, I test that. One two. Alright. That's it.

He saw her standing on her front lawn
Just a'twirling her baton
Him and her went for a ride, sir
And ten innocent people died


Info

The above lyrics are for an early home demo version of NEBRASKA recorded at Thrill Hill Recording (Springsteen's home studio) in Colts Neck, NJ, following the end of The River Tour, sometime between mid-September and December 1981. This is a brief unfinished work-in-progress take; it's just the introduction and first verse. See also early home demo version 1.
