Bruce Springsteen. Manuscript of Born to Run auctioned at Sotheby’s New York

On 5 December 2013 Sotheby’s will present a handwritten working manuscript of “Born to Run,” the Bruce Springsteen smash that became an essential American anthem. Written entirely in Springsteen’s hand, this early version charts the beginnings of the 1975 hit that catapulted The Boss to mega-stardom. The manuscript is estimated to fetch $70/100,000 and is on public view from 30th November.

“Born to Run” was a breakout smash, and became Springsteen’s first worldwide release. The majority of the lines in this version of the song are apparently unpublished and unrecorded but the present manuscript does include a nearly perfected chorus. Captured here, perhaps for the first time, is the most powerful of any Springsteen lyric:

“This town’ll rip the (out your) bones from yourback / it’s a suicide trap (rap) (it’s a trap to catchthe young) your dead unless / you get out (we gotto) while your young so (come on! / with) take myhand cause tramps / like us baby we were born to run.”

Thirty eight years later “Born To Run” remains a beloved classic. In 2013, after nearly four decades of performing the career defining hit, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked “Born to Run” Springsteen’s greatest song, and Springsteen himself as number 1 on their 2013 list of the “50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now.”
