Bruce Springsteen – The River (by Wim Kuipers)

October 30, 2010

A good song played my own way. You like it…or you don’t. It’s my first song recorded for years (feb. 2009). Elvis is The King, Bob Dylan is My Man. Bruce is The Man. This song takes me back to Palmer, Clifton, Clyde, Ames, Morganville, Jamestown, Tribune, Mankato, La Crosse, Emporia, Troy, El Dorado, Holton, Dighton, Kingman, Garden city, Anthony, St. John, Fredonia, Fort Scott, Mound city, Paolo, Hiawatha, Juction city, Smit center, Belleville, Lola, Sedan, Cimarron, Newton, Leoti, Ness city, Erie Medicine Lodge, Norway, Kackley, Radall, Marion, Chase, Saline, Hays, Wakeeney, Hill city, Hoxie, Gove, Colby, Goodland, Atwood, Norton, Meade, Ashland, Liberal, Winfield, Lyndon, Osborne, and Rice, Kansas. They make the world easy to understand… for just a little while. (words and music Bruce)
