Bruce Springsteen Lyrics. Born down in a dead man's town The first kick I took was when I hit the ground You end up like a dog that's been beat too much Till you spend half your life just covering up Born in the U. I was born in the U. Born in the U. Got in a little hometown jam So they put a rifle in my hand Sent me off to a foreign land To go and kill the yellow man Born in the U. Come back home to the refinery Hiring man says "Son if it was up to me" Went down to see my V. I'm a long gone Daddy in the U. I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U. Submit Corrections.
