I believe this version of The River is from No Nukes Concert - as Springsteen took the stage, the No Nukes video shows other established musicians like Bonnie Raitt surprised at how loud the "Bruce" calls were. It is great for someone like me who has only been to one Bruce concert to watch a song that the audience has not heard before - strange and pure to hear no applause when the song starts. Like Land of Hope and Dreams on the LIVE NYC Concert DVD, by the end the audience obviously approves (understatement).

I am very happy to find your great site. I never looked up the lyrics to this song, but your quoting the last line confirms my suspicion that he is now in jail (road gang) for killing his girl? Would go along with other themes on Nebraska.
