Born in the USA (The Boss Live!)


I remember this song from childhood, and well simply liked the chorus. Their was a glint of pride in the description; yet as an adult I came to understand the anger and rage in the verses. There is a disconnect between the pride and promise of our birth, and the lowered expectations, and shattered dreams of our adult national place. Like Martin (and many others), Bruce gives voice to those of us who long to see our nation reach its fullest potential as a home where all people are free not just the rich, the white, the male, etc.
