    sonny i la vista who’s that 

    thats him.

    thats me?

    thats you.

    thats true.

    thats him?

    that’s me.

    i’ll be.

    the isla vista part we get, but why sonny? its usually foggy there.

    bc its not about sunny its about sonny

    the least talked about springsteen character of all time for some reason

    sonny?

    sonny.

    I got a ’69 Chevy with a 396
    Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor
    She’s waiting tonight down in the parking lot
    Outside the 7-Eleven store
    Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
    And he rides with me from town to town
    We only run for the money, got no strings attached
    We shut ’em up and then we shut ’em down
    Tonight, tonight the strip’s just right
    I want to blow ’em off in my first heat
    Summer’s here and the time is right
    For racin’ in the street

    We take all the action we can meet
    And we cover all the northeast state
    When the strip shuts down we run ’em in the street
    From the fire roads to the interstate
    Some guys they just give up living
    And start dying little by little, piece by piece,
    Some guys come home from work and wash up,
    And go racin’ in the street

    Tonight, tonight the strip’s just right
    I want to blow ’em all out of their seats
    Calling out around the world, we’re going racin’ in the street

    I met her on the strip three years ago
    In a Camaro with this dude from L.A.
    I blew that Camaro off my back,
    And drove that little girl away,
    But now there’s wrinkles around my baby’s eyes
    And she cries herself to sleep at night
    When I come home the house is dark
    She sighs, “baby did you make it all right?”
    She sits on the porch of her daddy’s house
    But all her pretty dreams are torn,
    She stares off alone into the night
    With the eyes of one who hates for just being born


    For all the shut down strangers and hot rod angels,
    Rumbling through this promised land
    Tonight my baby and me, we’re gonna ride to the sea
    And wash these sins off our hands

    Tonight, tonight the highway’s bright
    Out of our way, mister, you best keep
    ‘Cause summer’s here and the time is right
    For racin’ in the street
