The Ghost of Tom Joad (湯姆周的靈魂) - Bruce Springsteen

Men walkin long the railroad tracks

 

Goin someplace there's no goin back

 

Highway patrol choppers comin up over the bridge

 

Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge

 

Shelter line stretchin round the corner

 

Welcome to the new world order

 

Families sleepin in their cars in the southwest

 

No home no job no peace no rest

 

The highway is alive tonight

 

But nobodys kiddin nobody about where it goes

 

I'm sittin down here in the campfire light

 

Searchin for the ghost of tom joad

 

He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag

 

Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag

 

Waitin for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last

 

In a cardboard box neath the underpass

 

Got a one way ticket to the promised land

 

You got a hole in your belly and gun in your hand

 

Sleepin on a pillow of solid rock

 

Bathin in the city aqueduct

 

The highway is alive tonight

 

Where it's headed everybody knows

 

I'm sittin down here in the campfire light

 

Waitin on the ghost of tom joad

 

Now tom said mom wherever there's a cop beatin a guy

 

Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries

 

Where there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air

 

Look for me mom I'll be there

 

Wherever there's somebody fightin for a place to stand

 

Or a decent job or a helpin hand

 

Wherever somebodys strugglin to be free

 

Look in their eyes mom youll see me

 

Well the highway is alive tonight

 

But nobodys kiddin nobody about where it goes

 

I'm sittin down here in the campfire light

 

With the ghost of old tom joad
