CHILD BRIDE 5:22 LM-1 / HNWB / MT2 / GT / MTQ

Note: The only recording known is from a Portastudio Session, Colt's Neck NJ, on January 3, 1982. It is often incorrectly noted as being an alternate title for "Working On The Highway". They are, in fact, separate songs that bear no common melody. In his notes to Jon Landau, Springsteen wrote "in which the protagonist violates the Mann Act and is left to ponder his fate. This is a work in progress, or more like a work without progress. I worked a real long time on this song and could never quite get it right. I spent so much time on it I thought I'd include it to see what you think." As such, Bruce would later set it to an up-beat backing, dispose of the entire original ending and re-invent the song as "Working On the Highway".
