Born in the USA – Bruce Springsteen

La première fois que j’ai entendu ce son, je ne comprenais que très peu l’anglais et pensais qu’il s’agissait d’un hymne pro-USA. Depuis que j’ai pu comprendre les paroles je vois à quel point cette chanson est noire et subversive sur la stupidité et l’infamie d’envoyer des hommes jeunes à la guerre, quelle qu’elle soit, ici la guerre du Viet Nam.
Ca me rappelle le film ‘Voyage au bout de l’enfer‘ de Michael Cimino.

Une énorme claque de la part du Boss, Bruce Springsteen

{Born In The U.S.A.}

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.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.

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.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man said « Son if it was up to me »
Went down to see my V.A. man
He said « Son, don’t you understand »

Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A.

I had a brother at Khe Sahn
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They’re still there , he’s all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I’m ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain’t got nowhere to go

Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A., I’m a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A., Born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A., I’m a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A.
