In Freehold
(Bruce Springsteen)

I was born right here on Randolph Street in Freehold
Right behind that big red maple in Freehold
I went to school right here
Got laid and had my first beer
Here in Freehold

My folks all lived and worked right here in Freehold
I remember running up the street past the convent to the church in Freehold
I chased my daddy down in these bars
First fell in love with this guitar
Here in Freehold

Had my first kiss at the YMCA canteen on a Friday night
Maria Espinosa, baby where are you tonight
You were only thirteen way ahead in your time
I walked home with a limp but I felt just fine
That night in Freehold

Well the girls at Freehold Regional, yeah, they looked pretty fine
I had my heart broken at least half a dozen times
I wonder do they miss me, do they still get the itch
Would they have dumped me if they knew I'd strike it rich
Straight out of Freehold

A lot of good people gave us a hand in Freehold
When we started up a Rock And Roll band in Freehold
Yeah we learned pretty quick how to rock it
I'll never forget the feeling of that first five bucks in my pocket
That I earned in Freehold

I got outta here hard and fast in Freehold
Everybody just wanted to kick my ass back then in Freehold
Well if you were different, black or brown
It was a pretty redneck town
Back in Freehold

Something broke my daddy's back in Freehold
He left it, for thirty years he'd never come back
Once he drove from California 3000 miles in three days
Called my mother's relatives some dirty names
And pulled straight out of Freehold

Now he's there by the highway buried in the dirt
His ghost just flippin' the bird
To everybody in Freehold

Well my sister got pregnant at seventeen in Freehold
Back then people they could be pretty mean
Ah honey you had a rough road to go, now you ain't made of nothin' but soul
I love you more than you'll ever know
We both survived Freehold

Well my buddy Mike, he's the mayor now in Freehold
I remember when we had a lot more hair in Freehold
I left and swore I'd never walk back
[spoken:] Oh shit!
I left and swore I'd never walk those streets again Jack
All I can say is "holy shit, I went back"
Back to Freehold

I read something in the papers a few weeks ago that was pretty funny
It seems the town council was debating whether to put up a statue of me in my hometown, but it cost too much money
I'd like to thank the Town Council my friends
For saving me from humiliation and displaying the good hard common sense
We learned in Freehold

Well this summer everything was green
Rode my kids on fire engine through the streets of Freehold
I showed 'em where dad was born and raised
And first felt the sun on his face
In Freehold

Well I still got a lot of real good friends back there
I can usually find a free beer somewhere
And with free dinners I am blessed
Should I go crazy, blow all my money, hit the tabloids, become fodder for moronic talk shows, and turn my life into a complete fucking mess
But I'll never go hungry I guess in Freehold

I got a good Catholic education in Freehold
Led to an awful lot of masturbation in Freehold
Father it was just something I did for a smile
Hell I still get a good one off once in a while
And dedicate it to Freehold

Don't get me wrong, I ain't puttin' anybody down
In the end it all just goes and comes around
It's a hell of a town
My hometown
