Walk Like A Man


Note: Recorded January 20, 1987 at Thrill Hill East (Springsteen’s NJ home studio) on the very first day of the sessions. The first take. Springsteen handles multiple instruments and his one-man backing band on this recording is Max Weinberg (drums). Bruce has grown in the 10 years since he wrote "Adam Raised A Cain". He really let his anger towards his father go, but now he looks back with more clarity. His father Doug worked in a factory with such high noise levels, that he was legally deaf when he was done. "Well now the years have gone and I've grown from that seed you've sown, but I didn't think there'd been so many steps I'd have to learn on my own, Well I was young and I didn't know what to do when I saw your best steps stolen away from you, Now I'll do what I can, I'll walk like a man, And I'll keep on walking……."
