Bruce Springsteen - Tenth Avenue Freeze Out Lyrics

Teardrops on the city
Bad Scooter searching for his groove
Seem like the whole world walking pretty
And you can't find the room to move
Well everybody better move over, that's all
'Cause I'm running on the bad side
And I got my back to the wall
Tenth Avenue freeze-out
Tenth Avenue freeze-out

Well I was stranded in the jungle
Trying to take in all the heat they was giving
The night is dark but the sidewalk's bright
And lined with the light of the living
From a tenement window a transistor blasts
Turn around the corner things got real quiet real fast
I walked into a Tenth Avenue freeze-out
Tenth Avenue freeze-out
And I'm all alone, I'm all alone
And kid you better get the picture
And I'm on my own, I'm on my own
And I can't go home

When the change was made uptown
And the Big Man joined the band
From the coastline to the city
All the little pretties raise their hands
I'm gonna sit back right easy and laugh
When Scooter and the Big Man bust this city in half
With the Tenth Avenue freeze-out
Tenth Avenue freeze-out

  7. Péter Borka

    For me: this is the ROCK'N ROLL. More than music, more than show, I dont know what, but for me this is the ROCK'N ROLL.

  8. Lisa Zarkower

    When I need to be yanked out of a bad mood....this does it every single time.

  9. Sergio V.L.

    Cold beer with a reasonable price, no fucking cell phones, pizza por everybody, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band playing at their best... Say Amen somebody!!!

  15. Angela Allen

    My fav Springsteen tune

  16. Martin Joy

    This is the first time I've seen this , but have been a fan from 72 , just read his book and for any fan how ever your age it is a beautiful read , funny, sad and an insight into his life . let him forever write his songs and fill the gap in our lives

  17. andyfyfe100

    The only 19:17 of ma life a don't regret 😉 rip big man

  18. Mike Kuczynski

    Wow :-)

  19. Arthur Rodriguez

    Unfortunately this looks totally Satanic to me. The Boss is great but he needs the Lord Jesus Christ. What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

    D & R Z

    Was it the part where Bruce said "Say it" and Clarence said "Tenth" - get it? Say-it Tenth... Say -Ten - Say - Ten .... Say Ten.... That part?

  20. Lisa Willard

    Great way to wake upBruce!!!!!!!!

  21. Egill Kristjansson

    This is so cool we all miss the Big man Clarence. Happy Birthday.

  22. Andrey Chernukha

    not the introduction of the band, no, the beginning, this is what is the coolest here

  23. josephgrumet

    Take us to church Bruce!!!!! Speak the truth my brother!!!! Can I get an AMEN!!!!

  28. Mac Watson

    Thank you Bruce for showing that platonic love can just as beautiful as romantic love. You gotta have love for the real ones. The buddies that are there for you just like any woman.

  29. Rick Green

    This song could put mental health professionals out of business!! This is my psychotherapy. Hands down. Thank you!!!

  60. rodrigo cabello estévez

    best regards from spain

  61. michael j

    Just AMAZING what a man , what a band

  62. Alon Brodsky

    wow what a performance! I'm planning on seeing Bruce + E street Band next year when they go on tour for the first time but it will be sad that Clarence Clemons won't be there :(

  63. Andrew Lazar

    The intensity that Bruce can bring is unrivaled. There are moments in which it feels other worldly. There are many concerts a young kid like me wishes he was at. Bruce at MSG on this tour is probably top 3. Up there with JGB show from the early 90's and Dylan when he could be Dylan.

  64. William Anthony

    We all know for years that Mick is always mentioned when it comes to great front men, but Bruce, in my opinion, is without a doubt, in the top three front men. Who else could keep an audience awake and interested for almost four hours a night?

  65. Geoff Cross


  66. JohnIn WayneNewJersey

    Well, talk about not leaving anything in the locker room! Hokie smokes, The Boss tore shit up for the crowd. You can really see how he lives to perform, a real class act.

  67. Daniel de Paula Mendes de Oliveira Dandan

    Which year?

  68. JohnR88

    Unmatchable energy I remember seeing this on tv as a kid and it shook me to my core..nothing has changed. Impeccable timeless performance.

  69. frank stark

    i loved bruce before he became a politician. now, he tells us we should pay more taxes while he claims to be a "farmer" so he can avoid paying his fair share.

  70. frank stark

    he moves awkwardly. like an old man. but i guess he is an old man.


    And you're an idiot

  71. lee verret

    That backbend! Lawd

  72. ChoirWalker

    I get so happy watching this im crying! So much love!

  73. David Darcy

    pure greatness a world icon

  74. Ralf Jäger

    me n old drummer be slowly and careful brother

  75. Ralf Jäger

  79. Jaxson Burke

    This rendition is a straight up religious experience. If Rock n Roll had a single sermon, it would be 19 minutes and 17 seconds long. Heartstopping! Earthquaking! Bootyshaking! Rattles your heart! Enlightens the soul!

    Shout out to Dan Federici. I'm also from Flemington. And The Big Man for bringing a sense of funk night after night that cannot be duplicated. 🕊️🎷💓

  80. fxx1

    Too emotional for me. Demasiado emotivo para mi.

  83. Ralf Jäger

    me still waiting inside my soul and twisting with tala ....... left and right in teams

  84. Juliet McGurk

    The love between Bruce and Clarence was pure and true. RIP Clarence. I have seen Bruce in concert three times - unfortunately Clarence was there just once.

  85. Rod Pitcock

    This is not even close to being my favorite Bruce song, but this is one of my favorite performances.

  86. Sue Law

    One of his best 10 th Ave freeze out , love this one ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ The Boss &The Big Man

    rj waytula

    The change was made uptown

  87. Lance Rooney

    The best there was, the best there is, the best there'll ever be. My daughter and I only refer to Bruce as 'the king' because that's what he is!

  88. Michael Reid Perry

    E Street is a state of mind - a beautiful state of mind I think only fans of this man and this band can understand.

  89. Jacob Ray

    Wow, that's the first time I heard the Boss drop the F-bomb

  90. robert fitzgerald

    Wonder if there is hope for him?

  91. robert fitzgerald

    Bruce rode bench in teener league.
    Could not hit

    only the boss can stand on a piano like that, or wipe his face with a towel

  94. Noah

    Is this video Springsteen must be in his mid-60s and he still brings it every night to make his fans happy

    David Quinton

    He was 51. He had his 70th only a few days ago.

  95. anella d'ambrosio

    Che bello c,eravate proprio tutti!! 😀😀🤗🤗💓💓💓💓💓💎💎💞💞😇😢

  96. leo zarazowski

    It's a church sermon

  97. bluesboy25000

    My stepdad is Irish Catholic from Philly. And he tells me with all seriousness, that "this is no less 'church." This is as much of a revival as anything a Pentecostal tent preacher does. Bruce Springsteen has more soul than most singers today have. He took it to church. Watching it, I imagine how hard it must have been for him to lose the Big Man. They genuinely loved each other. God Bless Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
