Well look over yonder see them city lights
Come on little dolly 'n' go ramroddin' tonight

Everything that guy sings about is tinged with sex
No, not really. While there's a lot of imagery with girls, cars, youth, etc. it never really feels like it's just about sex (of course, the song you quoted is an exception). It's more romanticism than anything else, at least on a lot of his early stuff.

on Wings For Wheels (the DVD about the making of Born to Run) Bruce is talking about tenth ave, and he goes, I Still have no idea what a tenth avenue freeze out is, but it's important.

I've never heard a man from Jersey who sounded more southern than Springsteen. Especially in his later albums. Livin' in the Future was such a breath of fresh air.

No I agree, just sometimes he really throws in some shady lyrics. But for the most part everything he sings is beautiful. Just SOMETIMES it's smutty
