Headed out Friday night to Giants Stadium…can’t wait. This is one of my all-time favorite songs. Hauntingly sad, yet hopeful, too. This version is from a 1978 show at the old Capitol Theater in my old stomping grounds of Passaic, N.J.
“Some guys they just give up living
And start dying little by little, piece by piece,
Some guys come home from work and wash up,
And go racin’ in the street.”
