It's cloudy out in Pittsburgh It's raining in Saigon Snow's fallin' all across the Michigan line Well she sits by the lights of the Christmas tree With the radio softly on Thinkin' how a good man is so hard to find. Well once she had a fella Once she was somebody's girl And she gave all she had that one last time Now there's a little girl asleep in the back room She's gonna have to tell about the meanness in this world And how a good man is so hard to find. Well there's pictures on the table by her bed him in his dress greens and her in her wedding white She remembers how the world was the day he left And now how that world is dead And a good man is so hard to find. She got time now for Casanovas Yeah those days are gone She don't want that anymore, she's made up her mind just somebody told her As the nights get on When a good man is so hard to find. Well she shuts off the TV And without a word Into bed she climbs Well she thinks how it was all so wasted And how expendable their dreams all were When a good man was so hard to find Well it's cloudy out in Pittsburgh.

Bruce Springsteen - A Good Man Is Hard To Find lyrics

Bruce Springsteen told Mark Hagen in an interview published in Mojo Magazine in January "The late '70s and early '80s was the first time when literature and films began to be made about Vietnam. There was a subtext on a few earlier things, there was a movie called 'Who'll Stop The Rain' with Nick Nolte, but all of a sudden it began to become very directly addressed.

I drove on to Los Angeles, and was at this little motel sitting at the pool and a fella came up, started talking and introduced himself: Ron Kovic. I said, 'Wow this is a real coincidence, I just read the book a couple of weeks ago. One thing lead to another and it just began to surface in some of my music. If other takes of the song were cut during these sessions, they remain uncirculating to this day.

A band rehearsal take recorded around March or April at Springsteen's home studio in Colts Neck, NJ, is in very limited circulation. According to Brucebase , this take is very similar to the final one that was released on Tracks , but slightly slower and features some lyrical variations. In the liner notes of his Tracks box set, Bruce Springsteen introduces the box set as follows:.

During long intervals between my record releases, as I was spending more and more time in the studio, when I met a fan out on the street I was often asked, "What are you guys doing in there? What we were doing in there was making a lot of music, a lot more music than I could use at any one time.

As a result, my albums became a series of choices — what to include, what to leave out? I based my decisions on my creative point of view at the moment — the subject I was trying to focus on, something musical or emotional I was trying to express.

On some of my other records the reasons I had for choosing one song over another, in hindsight, feel a good deal less significant. One of the results of working like this was that a lot of music, including some of my favorite things, remained unreleased. This collection contains everything from the first notes I sang in the Columbia recording studio, my early and later work with the E Street Band, through to my music in the 90s.

It's the alternate route to some of the destinations I travelled to on my records, an invitation into the studio on the many nights we spent making music in search of the records we presented to you. I'm glad to finally be able to share this music; here are some of the ones that got away. Bruce Springsteen's albums were thematically linked even if they were not strictly concept albums; so some tracks that didn't fit the theme of the album ended up orphaned, not necessarily because they didn't meet his high standards, but because, he says, they didn't fit in with the tone or themes he mined for each set.

Many of these unreleased studio outtakes got under the hands of bootleggers. Discussing that issue in , Springsteen told Rolling Stone 's Kurt Loder, "We record a lot of material, but we just don't release it all. I think there's some good material there that should come out. Maybe at some point, I'll do that. During a break in The Ghost Of Tom Joad Solo Acoustic Tour , Springsteen thought that "if it's gonna be a year or longer in between records, I have all this music that I know is very good that I never released and I should release some of it whether it was just a CD or something.

In that period of time, I should put something out because people would like to have it and I'd like to see it get out. Scott then went to work gathering the potential material from Springsteen's massive audio library located, along with Sony's sound archives, in the high-tech Iron Mountain facility near Buffalo, NY. I made some very brief notes in a notebook, and then I just put it away. It was something that I could do at some point when I get to that place in a new project where I'm not sure how long it's going to take and it would be nice to sort of fill the gap so the fans wouldn't be so long without hearing any music from me".

Springsteen told Mark Hagen in an interview for Mojo magazine published in January , "So it began just with that idea and we listened to about songs, maybe more, I made quick notes in a notebook and put it away. A year went by, more maybe, and I came off the Tom Joad tour and I began to write acoustically again and I wrote about half a record.

Then I got stuck and said, 'Well, I'm going to put this aside for a while. So I thought, instead of waiting for another year to put something out I'll put some of this music together. So once again I went back to the archives. Thrill Hill Recording served as the main operational center for all Tracks project activities. Springsteen told Billboard that the songs were culled from between and tunes. According to Toby Scott, the number was down to about songs by late June It was then narrowed down yet again in July to about songs that were prepped for the Tracks release.

Although the project was originally projected to be a 6-disc set, there was a commercial decision made later in the summer to reduce the size of the release to a 4-disc track set. The package was delivered to Sony in mid-September in order to facilitate the mid-November release schedule.

Unreleased songs from the Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ sessions were not included on the box set due to ongoing and still-unresolved court proceedings involving most of these unreleased recordings. The opening four tracks of the box set — which were culled from Springsteen's 03 May Columbia Records audition — were not part of the court proceedings. The Tracks box set was released on Columbia Records on 10 Nov It was issued on both compact disc and audio cassette formats.

It's a 4-disc or 4-cassette set consisting of a total of 66 tracks almost 4. Some tracks were treated with a recent touch-up here or there to give the older recordings a fresh polish. See the live 10 May version for more details; that live version features some lyrics variations. The song was played solo on acoustic guitar.

It's cloudy out in Pittsburgh It's rainin' in Saigon Snow's fallin' all across the Michigan line Well she sits by the light of her Christmas tree With the radio softly on Thinkin' how a good man is so hard to find. Well once she had a fella Once she was somebody's girl And she gave all she had that one last time Now there's a little girl asleep in the back room She's gonna have to tell about the meanness in this world And how a good man is so hard to find.

It's cloudy out in Pittsburgh It'ss raining in Saigon Snow's fallin' all across the Michigan line Well she sits by the lights of the Christmas tree With the radio softly on Thinkin' how a good man is so hard to find.

She got time now for Casanovas Yeah those days are gone She don't want that anymore, she's made up her mind Just somebody told her As the nights get on When a good man is so hard to find.

Bruce Springsteen often tells stories in his songs which investigate the human condition, the lyrics following a narrative arc with a clear beginning, middle and end. It is therefore not surprising that fiction is one of the places where he finds inspiration.

It's cloudy out in Pittsburgh It's rainin' in Saigon Snow's fallin' all across the Michigan line Well, she sits by the light of her Christmas tree With the radio softly on Thinkin' how a good man is so hard to find. Well, once she had a fella Once she was somebody's girl And she gave all she had that one last time Now there's a little girl asleep in the back room She's gonna have to tell about the meanness in this world And how a good man is so hard to find. Well, there's pictures on the table by her bed Him in his dress greens and her in her wedding white She remembers how the world was the day he left And now how that world is dead And a good man is so hard to find.
