TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT

Live 03 Jul 1988 version


All right, Roy! A-one, two, three, four!

Teardrops on the city
Bad Scooter searching for his groove
It's like the whole world's walking pretty
You can't find the room to move
Everybody better move over, that's all
I'm running on the bad side
Got my back up 'gainst the wall

(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it again!
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)

I was stranded in the jungle
Just taking all the heat they were giving
The night is dark and sidewalk bright
Lined with the light of the living
From a tenement window a transistor blasts
Turn around the corner things got real quiet real fast
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)

Well, I'm all alone, I'm all alone
[Clarence Clemons:] Now, kid, you better get the picture!
I'm on my own, I'm on my own
Ah, can't go home
But this is the best part, right here! Right here, right now, this is it, baby!
They made that change uptown
And the Big Man joined the band
From the coastline to the city
The little pretties raise their hands
I'm gonna sit back right easy and laugh
When Scooter and the Big Man bust this city in half

(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
One more time
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Here we go, now!
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Yeah, na, na!
Oh, na!
Oh, yeah
I said, oh, yeah, it's all right, now

The Tenth!
I said, it's all right!
I said, it's all right!
I said, it's all right!

The 03 Jul 1988 Show

As part of their Tunnel Of Love Express Tour, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band performed two concerts in Stockholm, Sweden, on 02 and 03 Jul 1988. The concerts were held at Stockholms Stadion.

The first set (the first 14 songs) from the 03 Jul 1988 show was internationally broadcast on radio.

The 03 Jul 1988 broadcast from Stockholms Stadion (minus CHIMES OF FREEDOM) was commercially released in the UK. Since 2005 some enterprising record labels in the UK have been releasing Bruce Springsteen radio and TV broadcasts (and some soundboard recordings) from the seventies, eighties, and nineties. Though these releases are not authorized by Bruce Springsteen or his record company, they are lawful due to a legal loophole in the UK.
