Last Man Standing

Album: Letter To You (2020)
  • Faded pictures in an old scrapbook
    Faded pictures that somebody took
    When you were hard and young and proud
    Back against the wall running raw and loud

    Snakeskin vest and a sharkskin suit
    Cuban heels on your boots
    Kick in the band and side by side
    You take the crowd on their mystery ride

    Knights of Columbus and the Fireman's Ball
    Friday night at the Union Hall
    Black leather clubs all along Route 9
    You count the names of the missing as you count off time

    Flock of angels lift me somehow
    Somewhere high and hard and loud
    Somewhere deep into the heart of the crowd
    I'm the last man standing now
    I'm the last man standing now

    Out of school and out of work
    Thrift store jeans and flannel shirts
    The lights go down and we face the crowd
    The last man standing now

    Lights come up at the Legion Hall
    Pool cues go back up on the wall
    You pack your guitar and have one last beer
    With just the ringing in your ears

    Flock of angels lift me somehow
    Somewhere high and hard and loud
    Somewhere deep into the heart of the crowd
    I'm the last man standing now
    I'm the last man standing now
    I'm the last man standing now

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah Writer/s: Bruce Springsteen
