Springsteen, Bruce - Chasin' Wild Horses Lyrics




Guess it was somethin' I shouldn't have done
Guess I regret it now
Ever since I was a kid
Tryin' to keep my temper down is like
Chasin' wild horses, chasin' wild horses
Chasin' wild horses

Left my home, left my friends
I didn't say goodbye
I contract out to the BLM
Up on the Montana line
Chasin' wild horses, chasin' wild horses

We're out before sunup
In after sundown
There's two men in the chopper
Two under saddle on the ground
In the evenings we'd hop in the pickup
Head into town for a drink
Make sure I work 'til I'm so damn tired
Way too tired to think

You lose track of time
It's all just storms blowin' through
You come rollin' 'cross my mind
Your hair flashin' in the blue
Like wild horses, just like wild horses
Just like wild horses

Fingernail moon in a twilight sky
Ridin' high grass of the switchback
I shout your name into the canyon
The echo throws it back

The winter snow whites out the plains
'Til it can turn me blind
The only thing up here I've found
Is tryin' to get you off my mind
Chasin' wild horses, chasin' wild horses
Chasin' wild horses, chasin' wild horses

    Went into store and heard this song playing - didn't leave until I had CD in my hand. Amazing - Bruce;s amazing vocals along with the fantastic orchestral

  2. cyberprolo

    When I need a moment of peace, calm, I listen to this beautiful song followed by Hello sunshine, they are the most powerful medecine to relax me !

  3. Brian Cole

    Thank you Mr. Springsteen. I don't know how you can discover the unknown corners of my heart but I am glad you can.

  4. Antonia-Sophia Scholz

    same melody like mr. tambourine man

    sixfootbear

    And the brass section?

  5. Sergio Rizi

    Espetácular

  6. Candice Cordial

    That moment when the orchestral strings join in, literally makes my skin break out with goosebumps. Sheer ethereal beauty for the ears and soul. Thank you Mr Springsteen for giving so many of us, so much pleasure over so many years.

  7. Dario kišak

    Chasing wild horses in Rdr2 while listening to this song is one epic expirience

  8. Barb Vince

    Nice song...next time use a real wild horse picture...not one with metal shoes on it...sorry...phony

  9. vermoi2929

    Einfach die Augen schließen und träumen! Geniales
    musikalisches Arrangement.

    Chasin' wild horses, chasin' wild horses

  12. Jessica Hutchinson

    This taps into the rhythm of my heartbeat and heals it while at the same time shattering it into pieces that cannot be put together except by another song, mixture of word and rhyme. God I’m happy to be alive to experience this!

  13. INA KAMIKAZE

    A germanbloodbrucesister from Stuttgart

  17. stan aloaloa

    Un album pour rouler des kilomètres dans de superbes paysages, sans risquer de rencontrer un highway patrolman ou des used cars au détour d'une ville abandonnée !

  18. Noir R.

    Now that I feel like I got nothing, I come back to this song. A good choice, clearly.

  19. tchang

  20. Brett Hunter

    great album.

  21. Gastón Venegas Rodríguez

  22. Phil Wragg

  23. MrNacktfisch

    Wonderful, sad, some hope and brings the listener back to the ground. Thanks Boss.....one more masterpiece

  24. golfer59

    Sorry not feelin the love. I go back to 1975 with the Boss

    sixfootbear

    The orchestration in this must move you surely? It is utterly sublime.

    key_v

    People change and grow and so does their art. Bruce has been evolving since album # 1.

  25. Donna Marie Pszoniak

    Loving this Song alot "" Beautiful""⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  26. Marc Hartkamp

    I love it ...

  27. marc alajouanine

    j'aime les USA quand vous les chantez comme ça, merci Mr Springsteen

  28. Pac Gang

    Sorry, Mr. Springsteen, this album is one of your very best ever. Since Tunnel of Love have never been that deep into your lyrics and songs. Concerts yes, always. Ever since. Go touring with this stuff...

  29. Joshua Kalmar

    Others repose upon their laurels, but my man, Bruce just reborn all the time. Truly great music right here

  30. NeDronez

    Recycled from Your Own Worst Enemy...

    holitipu

    I thought exactly the same thing !!! There is a line or 2 where the the melody is the same. And the Western Stars track to me has elements of All That Heaven Will Allow. Still love the man and all he does. He d be the first to admit that he sits on songs and reworks them...so its not a criticism from me..just an observation

  31. Vera Stewart

    This song is beautiful and sad.❤

  32. Jill Mulderry

    This is my story..... Thank you. Jill ... Upstate NY...😘

  33. Mark Lally

    i ve been raving about this album to anyone who'll listen, the shocking thing many people don't like Springsteen, scratching my head, this guy has been consistently great thru his career, and many of these critics are from NY or NJ

  34. Paul Gavan

    Just beautiful

  35. Sady Maher

    Up there with His best music . I love the Boss

  36. Darren Hebert

    I love everything he produces, but this song and album might be the best. A highly underrated voice has its day and, when combined with the orchestra, is simply stunning. I can't stop listening to this album...I might even tear up at times....

  37. Kevin Bouchard

    Album of the year for sure.

  38. Sharon Edmundson

    Sounds to me like a song that would work well in a western movie or one like Broke Back Mountain.

  39. D Name

    Trump wont stay forever. The good, old US-america is coming back!

  40. james cooper

    Stunning. Breathtaking. Gorgeous. Bruce, please change your mind and tour in support of this magnificent record, your best in years and years.

  41. Craig H.

    Bruce + orchestra + pedal steel guitar + banjo = a song like no other.

  42. Wendy Mcgrath

    master class lyric writer, here kids

  43. Gaia Micca Longo

    I close my eyes: I'm in the great american parks, I'm driving, the wind in my air...
    Thank you my friend, this song is a masterpiece!

  44. Ed Kuklinski

    Who could have ever predicted what he'd do releasing a record like this in 2019? I can't stop listening, hard to believe. Stunningly beautiful.

    derek rickard

    Exactly!

    Larry Carstensen

    I could have predicted it. You could have predicted it, the man is the king, hes unbelievable

    Ed Kuklinski

    @Larry Carstensen What a long ways from Spirit in the Night. Or perhaps not :)

    Mark Levasseur

    @Larry Carstensen agree

  45. Christina Dyck

    Love this album

  46. Phil Braithwaite

    I'm totally blown away by this album. At a time of life when most artist's mojo has long since deserted them he comes up with this magnum opus. There really is only one Boss.

  47. Jo jo

    One of the best this world will ever see. So unique.. I love that Bruce sticks to what he does best, and doesn't try to change his image and sound to please the latest trend. Love Bruce so much, and am so, so, so grateful that he is still gifting us with such beautiful music.

  48. Daniele1832

    Simply incredible

  49. Federico Riva

    Strong irish influences here

  50. Richard Bennet

    It seems a song from the imaginary movie titled "The Boss forever".

  51. Carmelina Perez Asensio

    Me encanta 😘

  52. Gabriele Mirone

    Great job, as always. A never ending artist.

  53. Annie Gallagher

  67. Fabrizio D'Alonzo

    If you find an average-filler song in Western Stars I pay you.

    Al Licks

    There Goes My Miracle. Now, where's my money ?

    Fabrizio D'Alonzo

    @Al Licks sorry, dead wrong answer...challenge was for "average-filler", not "instant classic"...

  68. Cristina Freitas

    The best! I Love this Song!

  69. MannBrothersFilms

    Bruuuce ❤.

  70. Victor and the Psalter

    Bruce has got it all. Golden.

  71. Suzanne Moore

    This is one of the most beautifully composed, arranged and orchestrated songs I've heard and felt in my heart in ages. The entire album is EPIC.

    Alastair Meiklejohn

    It's his best in a long, long time. That's not to say that any of them have been weak, but this album is majestic from start to finish

    Paul Tatara

    @derek rickard I've been saying since Born in the USA, but yes- I rank it in his top five.

    Paul Tatara

    @Alastair Meiklejohn Springsteen is my hero, and some of them have been weak. He seemed lost in the early to mid-90s.

    Michael M.

    Suzanne, (which is a beautiful name) agree with you 100%. This is a truly beautiful cd or album, whichever you have. Love all aspects of it!!!

    Greg Wall
