Highway Patrolman (Live) - Bruce Springsteen

My name is joe roberts I work for the state

 

I'm a sergeant out of perrineville barracks number 8

 

I always done an honest job as honest as I could

 

I got a brother named frankie

 

And frankie ain't no good

 

Now ever since we was young kids

 

Its been the same come down

 

I get a call over the radio frankies

 

In trouble downtown

 

Well if it was any other man I'd put him straight away

 

When its your brother sometimes

You look the other way

 

Yeah me and frankie laughin and drinkin

 

Nothin feels better than blood on blood

 

Takin turns dancin with maria as the band

Played night of the johnstown flood

 

I catch him when hes strayin like any brother would

 

Man turns his back on his family well

He just ain't no good

 

Well frankie went in the army back in 1965

 

I got a farm deferment settled down

Took maria for my wife

 

But them wheat prices kept on droppin

 

Till it was like we were gettin

Robbed

 

Frankie came home in `68 and me I took this job

 

Yeah were laughin and drinkin

 

Nothin feels better than blood on blood

 

Takin turns dancin with maria as the band

Played night of the johnstown flood

I catch him when hes strayin teach him

How to walk that line

 

Man turns his back on his family

He ain't no

 

Well the night was like any other

 

I got a call `bout quarter to nine

 

There was trouble in a roadhouse out on the michigan line

 

There was a kid lyin on the floor lookin bad

 

Bleedin hard from his head

 

There was a girl cryn at a table

 

And it was frank they said

 

Well I went out and I jumped in my car

 

And I hit the lights

 

Well I musta done one hundred

 

And ten through michigan county that night

 

It was out at the crossroads

 

Down `round willow bank

 

Seen a buick with ohio plates

 

Behind the wheel was frank

 

Well I chased him through them county roads

 

Till a sign said canadian border five miles from here

 

I pulled over the side of the highway

 

And watched his tail-lights disappear

 

Me and frankie laughin and drinkin

 

Nothin feels better than blood on blood

 

Takin turns dancin with maria as the band

Played night of the johnstown flood

 

I catch him when he's strayin' like any brother would

 

Man turns his back on his family well he just ain't no good

 

Me and Franky laughin' and drinkin' nothin'

Feels better than blood on blood

 

Takin' turns dancin' with Maria as the band played

"Night of the Johnstown Flood"

 

I catch him when he's strayin' like any brother would

 

Man turns his back on his family well

He just ain't no good
