During the " tunnel of love tour" . The soundcheck includes Slim Harpo's "Rainin' In My Heart" (not the Buddy Holly song with the same title), "Big Boss Man", "Let It Be Me", "Cathy's Clown" and "Crying In The Rain" (both also The Everly Brothers) and both "Rock And Roll Music" and "Sweet Little Sixteen" by Chuck Berry. The second song of the soundcheck has historically been titled "The Way You Walk", however a little investigation has revealed it to be John Lee Hooker's "Dimples". Perhaps Bruce had considered including the song in the Express Tour set, but instead settled on "Boom Boom" which will be premiered four days after this show in Bloomington, MN.

Lyrics

Wow, Have love
Whoa baby will travel
Uh huh, uh huh, have love
Woah baby will travel
I said if you need loving then
Mm, hmm, I'll travel
Yeah, I'll travel from Main to Mexico
Just to find a little girl that loves me so
No matter when, no matter where I'll be
I'm looking for a woman that'll satisfy me
Wow, Have love
Whoa baby will travel
Uh huh, uh huh, have love
Woah baby will travel
I said if you need loving then
Mm, hmm, I'll travel
Yeah, yeah, yeah, have love
Oh baby will travel
Uh huh, have love
Oh pretty baby will travel
I said if you need loving then
Mm, I'll travel
Well I might take a boat or I'll take a plane
I might hitch hike or jump a railroad train
Your kind of love drives a man insane
So look for me walking just a any old way
Yeah, yeah, yeah, have love
Oh baby will travel
Uh huh, have love
Oh pretty baby will travel
I said if you need loving then
Mm, I'll travel
