He leans on the hood telling racing stories/ the kids call him Jimmy The Saint...
Springsteen's doing an episode of "VH1 Storytellers". I wasn't sure if the show existed anymore, and if they did, I thought it had sold out and people like Avril Lavigne and Ryan Cabrera were doing it. ("I wrote this song after I lost my favorite shell necklace. I think it fell off at an appearance at Sam's Club.") If you haven't heard it, listen to Springsteen's introduction to "The River" on his Live: 1975-85 where he talks about his relationship with his dad and almost getting sent to Vietnam. There shall be tears in your eyes afterwards, or you're a goddamn robot.
