I’m still riding high from the Springsteen concert a few weeks ago. Specifically, I’ve been listening to the Nebraska album, easily my favorite of his and one of my all-time faves.

So what’s my favorite song off my favorite Springsteen album? Tough to say… The entire album is so damn powerful. More than one of the tunes bring me near to tears even now, 32 years after Nebraska‘s┬árelease. At the moment, though, it’s probably “Highway Patrolman”:


Also of note is ┬áJohnny Cash’s cover of “Highway Patrolman” on his 1983 album Johnny 99 (a song also covered from Springsteen’s Nebraska album).
