Dublin’s Highway Patrolman

the boss

The Seeger Sessions fall tour hit Dublin a few nights ago for a 3 night stand. On night two, Bruce began to sing…

My name is Joe Roberts I work for the state / I’m a sergeant out of Perrineville barracks number 8 I always done an honest job as honest as I could I got a brother named Franky and Franky ain’t no good.

That’s right, it was “Highway Patrolman”, Seeger Sessions style. What do you think?

Bruce Springsteen & the Seeger Sessions Band: Highway Patrolman (mp3) – live from The Point, Dublin, Ireland, November 18, 2006.

MP3 Note: you’ll have to turn this one up a little. May I remind you to turn down your speakers or iPod immediately after the song or you will experience an unpleasant jolt like I just did.

Buy the Seeger Sessions: The American Land Edition.
Buy Nebraska.

    I used to hate Springsteen. I just didn’t get it. Born To Run was something I did every time I heard it.

    Some years later, I was doing my tour of duty in Australia (and most Brits are obliged to do), and some Canadian girls got me listening to Born in the USA. Ok, so maybe I missed something.

    When back in the UK, a friend got me a ticket to see him at Wembley Stadium, and to be honest, I had read about his 4 hour shows, and didn’t think I could stand it.

    4 hours later, I didn’t want it to stop …..

    Which lead me to Nebraska …. wonderful.

    I wish I had known about these Seeger Sessions.

    Best wishes
