Freehold Lyrics - Bruce Springsteen

Review The Song (1)



I was born right here on Randolph Street in Freehold
Here right behind that big red maple in Freehold
I went to school right here
Got laid and had my first beer
Here in Freehold

Well, my folks all lived and worked right here in Freehold
I remember running up the street past the convent to the church in Freehold
Chased my daddy down in these bars
First fell in love with this guitar
Here in Freehold

I had my first kiss at the YMCA canteen on a Friday night
Maria Espinoza baby where are you tonight
You were thirteen but way ahead of your time
I walked home with a limp but I felt just fine
That night in Freehold

Well now the girls at Freehold Regional yeah they all looked pretty fine
sponsored links
I had my heart broken at least half a dozen times
I wonder if they miss me if they still get the itch
Would they have dumped me if they knew I'd strike a rich
Straight out of Freehold

Well, a lot of good folks gave us kids a hand in Freehold
When we started up our rock and roll band in Freehold
Yeah we learned pretty quick how to rock
I'll never forget the feeling of that first five bucks in my pocket
That I earned in Freehold

Well, I got outta here hard and fast in Freehold
Everybody wanted to kick my ass back then in Freehold
Well if you were different or black or brown
It was a pretty redneck town
Back in Freehold

Well, now something broke my daddy's back in Freehold
He left for thirty years he'd never come back
'cept once he drove from California in just three days
Called my relatives some dirty names
And pulled straight out of Freehold
Now he’s there by the highway buried in the dirt
His ghost flippin’ the bird to everybody in Freehold

Well my sister got pregnant at seventeen in Freehold
Back then people they could be pretty mean
Ah honey you had a rough road to go now you ain't made of nothin' but soul
I love you more than you'll ever know
We both survived Freehold

Well my buddy Mike he's the mayor now in Freehold
I remember when we had a lot more hair in Freehold
I left and swore I'd never walk those streets again Jack
Now all I can say is Holy shit I'm back
Back in Freehold

Well I read something in the papers a few weeks ago that was pretty funny
The town council is debating whether to put up a statue of me in my home town
But it cost too much money
Well I’d like to thank the town council my friends
For saving me from humiliation and displaying the good hard common sense
We learned in Freehold

Well, this summer everything was green
Rode my kids on the fire engine through the streets of Freehold
I bored 'em with where dad was born and raised
And first felt the sun on his face
In Freehold

Well I still got a lot of real good friends back there
And I can usually find a free beer somewhere
With free dinners I am blessed
Should I go crazy, blow all my money, hit the tabloids
Become fodder for moronic talk shows and turn my life into a complete fuckin’ mess
Well, at least I'll never go hungry I guess
In Freehold

I got a good Catholic education in Freehold
Led to an awful lot of masturbation in Freehold
Well Father it was just something I did for a smile
Hell I still get a good one off once in a while
And dedicate it to Freehold
Don't get me wrong, I ain't puttin' anybody down
In the end it all just goes and comes around
In my hometown back in Freehold

My hometown, too | Reviewer: Janet Ulmer | 2/7/2007

I grew up in Freehold and Graduated from Freehold Regional HS in 1962. After college, I came back and taught there the year Bruce was a Senior. I went to Canteen at the YMCA, too! I got a big kick out of the song. I live in California now, but I visit Freehold every year and I am proud that Bruce Springsteen comes from my hometown!!
