Note: V2-4 are from Telegraph Hill rehearsals on March 30, 1979. V5 is a short take of just the end of the song. Tremendous song. The two full rehearsal takes both have lyrical variations but V4 is closer to the final take, presumably recorded some time after V5. V6 recorded in the studio at The Power Station on June 13 and July 5, 1979. The song title on an early handwritten lyric sheet was "Time". Appeared on an early sequence for The Ties That Bind and included on a 1993 in-house Tracks "concept album". Bumped off The River by the title track. The officially released V6 found on The River: Outtakes CD appears to be an entirely vintage recording. V6 has Springsteen singing harmonies over the Telegraph Hill band rehearsal take.
