When Springsteen turned 30 he celebrated that night at Madison Square Garden in New York at the No Nukes concert, and performed this song for the first time.


I come from down in the valley
where mister when you’re young
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
Me and Mary we met in high school
when she was just seventeen
We’d ride out of this valley down to where the fields were green

We’d go down to the river
And into the river we’d dive
Oh down to the river we’d ride
