Walk Like A Man


Note: Recorded January 20, 1987 at Thrill Hill Recording, Rumson, New Jersey (Springsteen’s 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 ten 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……."
