´´Seems like spring´s getting there now....think I´ll take a little walk in the park, it´s nice day ....hey, hey, man, hey, how you doing ? alright, good to see you, how´ve you been ?.... haven´t seen you in a little while, you know....everybody´s been home, I guess....what you bene up to ?....yeah, yeah, what ? oh-oh, here come the baby pictures (chuckles)....there´s a little Big Man running around out there tonight....he´s three years old, right, three, almost as big as me....there´s a lot of little babies running around....in about 15 years there´s gonna be Street Band Volume 2....yeah....and filled with women.....we used to sit on this bench in, uh, 1975....ten years ago, you don´t look no older, though, I don´t look no older either, right ?.... was this big office building on the corner and we used to watch the girls come out every day at the end of work, you know....we´d bring a few sandwiches and a couple of beers (?).... used to come out right about this time....here they come, here they come, check the, uh, check the one, the one in the blue skirt....wo ! (chuckles)....can´t do that no more....I was with you, I was with you the night you met your wife....Clarence came running into my hotelroom....says ´Bruce, Bruce, I met the girl that I´m gonna marry´....but he used to say that about every girl that he met, every time....you know, (?) different country (?)(chuckles)....but you meant it that time....remember what it´s like the first time you seen her come walking in the room and....back in New, in New Jersey, it kind of feels like this....come on Ritchie !.... something like that (chuckles)....getting late, I gotta be home for dinner right on time now, you know....and I gotta be in bed by, by 11.30....that´s when she goes to bed....I´ll see you later, alright, I´ll see you.....”

26.03.88 Lexington, KY, intro to ´Spare Parts´
´´So how you doing out there tonight ? (cheers)....that´s good....how ´bout you guys back there ? (cheers)....that´s good....the first thing that happens whenever I get back together with the band after we´ve been apart for a long time....is we start telling all the old stories....about way back when....there´s something about....there´s something about our past together that
....that brings us closer to each other....when we haven´t seen each other for a while....and the past is a funny thing because it can hold you down too....you just try to, you´re afraid to give up your old dreams and....when they don´t come true and the world just keeps breaking your heart over and over again.....this is a song about a woman struggling with the part of her past that wants to hold her back, keep her down...struggling to understand the value of her own individual existence....and the value of the life of her child.....it seems like no matter where we go or what we do, the value of our own lives always slips in and out on us....so....I guess in this song she´s trying to understand....how so much sadness and so much beauty....can exist in the same time....and how...and trying to learn how to live with that....”

26.03.88 Lexington, KY, intro to ´You Can Look´
´´Well, alright !....this is a song dedicated, uh....to window shopping....I like to come into town and....search for a little souvenir to bring home....a little keepsake....to sit by my bedside at night....You got that Homeshopping Network down here ? (cheers)....I hate that damn thing....”

26.03.88 Lexington, KY, intro to ´I´m a Coward´
´´Let me regain my composure....´cause you can look.....is there anybody alive out there tonight ? (cheers)....does anybody feel the spirit out there tonight ? (cheers)....that´s good because....I´ve got a....question I wanna ask you....are there any rough, brave Kentucky men out in the audience tonight ? (cheers)....are there any macho men out there ? (cheers) .... because I´ve seen men that would swim rivers....they´d climb mountains....they´d wrestle with a grizzly bear ....but there was one thing they was afraid of ....there was one thing that scared ´em to death....and I´m gonna tell you what that one thing was.....L....U...V...love, that´s what I´m talking about....love scared ´em to death....now, are there any brave Kentucky women out there ? (cheers)....are there any sweet, courageous, lovely Southern belles out there tonight? (cheers)....because I´m talking to you too....I´ve known women that would get in a canoe and go down the Amazon River wrestling with crocodiles and crawling king snakes....women that would jump out of an airplane at 30,000 feet....but there was one thing that they was afraid of, that one thing was love....now I´m down here tonight because I´ve got a confession I´ve got to make....I wanna say that I have sinned !....and I don´t need no Pat Robertson to forgive me....Pat Robertson can kiss my ass, baby....I don´t care who you bring down here, bring Hulk Hogan down, I´ll take him on, bring George the Animal Steele down, bring down the Road Warriors, bring down Andre the Giant....I´m not afraid of those kinds of men....but what I wanna confess to is that....I´m a coward when it comes to love....”

26.03.88 Lexington, KY, intro to ´Born to Run´
´´Thank you, thanks....when I was sitting home and we were talking about going out on tour ....and uh....I was trying to think about what I....wanted to say if I came out, what I wanted to talk to you about, sing to you about....gotta sing a new song, that´s my job....and uh....I´d sit around and play this song....and this is a song I´ve sung, oh, many, many, many times over the years....and as I´ve got older and I´ve sang it, it seemed to change....I wrote it when I was 24 years old, sitting on the end of my bed in Long Branch, New Jersey....and I guess I thought I was writing about a guy and a girl who wanted to run and keep on running....and as I got older and as I sang it through the years, I guess the meaning of that song started to change or else I just started to really hear it...and I realised that they were two people out there searching for something better....going out into the world....looking for a place where they could stand and I guess a place that they could call ´home´....something that´s hard to find and hard to hold on to....and as I got older, I realised that home wasn´t out there but that it was buried deep inside here somewhere....and that I just had to struggle to try and get to it ...anyway, this is a song that´s kept me good company on my search, I hope it´s kept you good company on yours....I´d like to sing it for you and dedicate it to you tonight wishing you best of luck....”

26.03.88 Lexington, KY, end of ´Dancing in the Dark´
