Note: V1-V4 are four different, complete performances, all done in rockabilly arrangements. All versions are sung in third person ("Your Hometown"). V5-V6 come from four takes recorded late in the Born In the USA sessions on June 29, 1983, at The Hit Factory. Two different performances circulate, both featuring Ruth Jackson (wife of sound engineer Bruce Jackson) on background vocals. Takes #1 and #2 clocked in at over six minutes. V5 Take #3 was preferred for Born In The USA and V6 #4 can be found on Lost Masters 19.
