Tales of Boomtown Glory - born to burn lyrics
Permalink  
 


 I was getting really excited when I saw Born to Burn lyrics in the book - sadly its only the 1st verse and 2 lines of the 2nd verse.  The other lyrics he mentions- "piano player thumping keys" and "Man these walls are gonna blow" aren't in the song.  I think these were alternative lyrics to some of the verses that were never used.  Bob says himself he can't remember a lot of them.

Its actually one of my fave tracks and sums up the sped up classic R&B guitar sound ala Feelgood and then a lot of the earlier pub/ punk bands [ think Eddie & hot rods -get out of Denver}

I was pretty disappointed , so it prompted me to really try and work them out - listening on YT and slowing the speed.  I think I've got a bout 95% of them and if I print them out on here with a gap for the ones Im not sure of,  everyone could chip in with what they think it could be.   20 heads better than 1

His dictation isn't very clear in this song ,so a lot of lyrics have been guessed using the right context of the line.

If enough of you are up to this challenge ,I'll put them up.    Im sure its the only Rats song that no one knows the lyrics to
