Bruce Springsteen – Born in the U.S.A. – 1984

    Paroles

    Born down in a dead man’s town
    The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
    End up like a dog that’s been beat too much
    ‘Til you spend half your life just covering up

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

    Got in a little hometown jam
    So they put a rifle in my hand
    Sent me off to a foreign land
    To go and kill the yellow man

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

    Come back home to the refinery
    Hiring man said « son if it was up to me »
    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
    I got a picture of him in her arms now

    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

    Born in the U.S.A
    I was born in the U.S.A
    Born in the U.S.A
    I’m a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A
    Born in the U.S.A
    Born in the U.S.A
    Born in the U.S.A
    I’m a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A
