Coverinfo

Bruce never performed the song live but recorded the song with John Fogerty. Fogerty released it on his 2009 album The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again. His recording features Bruce Springsteen backing vocals on the chorus and singing lead on one verse. John Fogerty's cover of When will I be loved is the twelfth (and closing) track on his album The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again. The album was arranged and produced by John Fogerty. The song debuted on 09 Aug 2009, streaming on Fogerty's official website. The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again is John Fogerty's eighth solo album and is a sequel to his first solo album, The Blue Ridge Rangers, which was released in 1973. Both albums are made up entirely of traditional and country covers. While the first consisted entirely of Fogerty singing all the vocals and playing all the instruments by himself, the second uses a backing band and features special guests Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles' Don Henley, and Timothy B. Schmit. Fogerty commented, "I'd long thought I'd do another Blue Ridge Rangers album and not make the mistake of playing all the instruments." Bruce Springsteen makes a cameo in the official music video for When will I be loved, appearing on a Wanted poster. (at 1:38).

Lyrics

I've been cheated
Been mistreated
When will I be loved?
I've been pushed down
I've been pushed ‘round
When will I be loved?

When I find a new girl
That I want for mine
She always breaks my heart in two
it happens every time

I've been made blue
I've been lied to
When will I be loved?

Oh, man! I just want to know when!
yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

When I find a new girl
Yeah, that I want for mine
She always breaks my heart in two
It happens every time
Whoa whoa whoa

I've been cheated
Been mistreated
When will I be loved?
When will I be loved?
Tell me
When will I be loved?
