PRECIOUS MEMORIES

Home demo version


[Spoken:] All right.

Precious memories, how they linger
How they live in my soul
Baby, in the stillness of the midnight
Precious sacred scenes unfold

When the moon goes over the mountain
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da

Home Demo

Between Spring 1981 and Spring 1982, Bruce Springsteen spent much time laying down home demos at Thrill Hill Recording (Springsteen's home studio) in Colts Neck, NJ. Much of these non-professional home recordings have surfaced on The Lost Masters bootleg series in 1996. On one of these recordings, Springsteen can be heard singing the chorus of the traditional song PRECIOUS MEMORIES. The above lyrics are transcribed from that home demo take, and according to Brucebase, it was recorded sometime between mid-September and December 1981 at Thrill Hill Recording. This home demo can now be found on The Lost Masters Vol. 1 (Labour Of Love) and How Nebraska Was Born (The Godfatherecords) bootlegs.
