First performance: 31/01/1998


Coverinfo

1998-01-31 - COUNT BASIE THEATRE, RED BANK, NJ

Patti Scialfa performed the song during the "Come Together" concert . Bruce Springsteen did not sing, but he probably was onstage playing guitar during this and all the other songs on which he did not sing. The "Come Together: Jon Bon Jovi & Friends" benefit concert was organized by the Long Branch Police Department, The Asbury Park Press, and FPI Concerts, along with Jon Bon Jovi. The concert was to honor slain Long Branch police officer Sgt. Patrick King and raise money for the Sgt. Patrick King Memorial Fund to provide for his family. King, 45-year-old father of two young boys, was fatally shot on 20 Nov 1997 by a fugitive who had vowed to kill himself and a police officer rather than be captured and returned to jail. Twenty musicians with ties to the Jersey shore music scene answered Jon Bon Jovi's call, including Bruce Springsteen and several members of the then-disbanded E Street Band (Clarence Clemons, Danni Frederici, Patti Scialfa, Steven Van Zandt, and Max Weinberg), Southside Johnny, Bobby Bandiera, and Richie Sambora among others. Actor Danny DeVito was the event's MC. Tickets, which were priced at $125, went on sale on 17 Jan 1998 noon and sold out in just eight minutes. The concert that was organized in short order raised more than $112,000 for King's widow and his two sons. This was a near-reunion of the fabled E Street Band and Springsteen's first full-length electric gig following the acoustic The Ghost Of Tom Joad Solo Acoustic Tour. Springsteen spent much (or possibly all) of the night onstage, singing or playing guitar only. Soundboard recording for the complete concert is available among collectors. The 31 Jan 1998 show at Count Basie Theatre was commercially released in Europe. Since 2005 some enterprising record labels in Europe (mostly in the UK) have been releasing Bruce Springsteen radio and TV broadcasts (and some soundboard recordings) from the seventies, eighties, and nineties. Though these releases are not authorized by Bruce Springsteen or his record company, they are lawful due to a legal loophole in Europe.

Lyrics

Oh baby tell me stories
About those pretty worlds
Who will deliver us from blame
Who will walk free
Who will walk in chains
And when the sky is falling
What do we believe in
When everything
We learned to trust
Turns around
And makes a fool of us
Well baby
I'll believe
In all of loves glory
So don't you try
And talk me down
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby I can fall
Oh my tender dreams
I gave them such fragile wings
And I sent them up to heaven
But heaven was just too high
And I watched them
Falter against the sky
But baby I still believe
In all of loves glory
I gave that promise to the rain
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby I can fall
Oh, I could I'd play out my part
I'd cup my hands and
I'd collect the rain
That falls inside your heart
But I can't stop the rain
I can't hold back the thunder
Oh but I can make one vow
And promise you
My heart right now
'Cause baby I believe
In all of loves glory
And no one's gonna talk me down
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby I can fall
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby I can fall
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby I can fall
