So my hometown got turned into a Springsteen song.......

I was reading on,
"Yet Devils and Dust is, in striking and affecting ways, also Springsteen's most audacious record since the home-demo American Gothic of 1982's Nebraska. It opens with mortal sin -- the title song, a sand-caked letter home from a war where both sides kill in God's name -- and ends in death: "Matamoros Banks," a prayer for remembrance by an illegal immigrant who doesn't make it across the Rio Grande. "

I'm from Matamoros, Tamaulipas which is right on the border with South Texas. I'm real curious about the song, haven't been this excited since I heard Brownsville Girl by Bob Dylan. (Which is where I grew up, right across the border). Goofy post, I know. Anyone a Springsteen fan who already has a hold of this song?

in the "springsteen album leaked" thread, there was a you send it of the individual song, and the whole album zipped.

if the links are dead (and i wouldn't be surprised if they were by now), i'll tell you what....drop me a PM and i'll hook you up.
