Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949), nicknamed "The Boss", is an American singer-songwriter. He records and tours with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered on his native New Jersey. Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band perform intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which he intersperses whimsical or deeply emotional stories.His most successful studio albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life in America. Because of his support for the presidential campaigns of Senator John Kerry and Senator Barack Obama, Springsteen has gradually become identified with liberal politics. He is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11th attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects. He has earned numerous awards for his work, including nineteen Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award, and continues to have a strong global fan base. He has sold more than 65 million albums in the United States and 120 million worldwide.

American land

An original song inspired by the poem « he lies on the American land » by an immigrant steelworker Andrew Kovaly and set to music by Pete Seeger

Sang at the last show during the tour 2007-2008. He was written during the 2006 Seeger Sessions with a studio version being recorded though never released. The song was played throughout that tour and heavily on the subsequent two E Street Band tours.

Terre d'Amérique

Quelle est donc cette Terre d'Amérique tant de gens vont là bas

J'y vais maintenant tant que je suis encore jeune, ma chérie rejoins-moi là-bas

Souhaite-moi bonne chance ma belle, je te ferai venir dès que je pourrai

Et nous nous établirons sur la Terre d'Amérique


Là-bas, toutes les femmes portent de la soie et du satin pour couvrir leurs genoux

Et mes chers enfants, les bonbons, ai-je entendu dire, poussent dans les arbres

L'or vient en jaillissant des rivières directement dans vos mains

Lorsque vous vous établissez sur la Terre d'Amérique


Il y a des diamants sur les trottoirs, des caniveaux bordés de chants

Ma chère j'entends dire que la bière coule des robinets toute la nuit

Il y a des trésors à empocher pour tout homme travailleur

Qui s'établit sur la Terre d'Amérique
