#28 Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen

For Complete Lyrics Visit:

So much can be said about this song – about the mistreatment of Vietnam Veterans, about the disproportionate number of poor kids sent off to war, about the broken lives of those who face war, about lessons unlearned over decades of time, about the elusive American dream, but I feel like I want to take it in a somewhat different direction.

Last night I went to a U2 concert, and knowing I was writing about Born in the USA today, this song stood out to me: Walk On. I am posting a link to the yrics here and dedicating it to anyone who has served a cause or have given up themselves or someone they love to a cause they deem greater than themselves. "Walk on, walk on / What you've got they can't deny it / Can't sell it, can't buy it / Walk on, walk on / Stay safe tonight / And I know it aches / And your heart it breaks / And you can only take so much / Walk on, walk on..."
