'Glory Days'

I had a friend was a big baseball player
Back in high school
He could throw that speedball by you
Make you look like a fool boy
Saw him the other night at this roadside bar
I was walking in, he was walking out
We went back inside sat down had a few drinks
But all he kept talking about was

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school she could turn all the boy's heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by
And have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby well they split up
I guess it's two years gone by now
We just sit around talking about the old times,
She says when she feels like crying
She starts laughing thinking about

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Think I'm going down to the well tonight
And I'm going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it
But I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
A little of the glory of, well time slips away
And leaves you with nothing mister but
Boring stories of

Glory days yeah they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Yeah they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Sobre Glory Days

  • Bruce Springsteen dijo lo siguiente: "El primer verso realmente sucedió. El segundo verso sucedió mayormente, y el tercer verso, por supuesto, está sucediendo ahora".

  • La canción fue escrita inicialmente como una trilogía, un amigo (un chico), una chica y un padre (el "verso perdido"). Estas fueron tres personas que lo impactaron significativamente y lo ataron a su ciudad natal. Por lo tanto, el "tercer" versículo mencionado anteriormente es en realidad el cuarto.

  • Estructura muy similar a la de "Slip Slidin' Away" de Paul Simon, que precedía a "Glory Days" por ocho años, y que tenía una atrilogía de nuevo: hombre, mujer y padre, y luego un cuarto lado "concluyente" del triángulo: dios.
