Bruce Springsteen Unveils "A Night With The Jersey Devil" Exclusively On Halloween





As a ghoulish Halloween treat to loyal fans, Bruce Springsteen is offering a free audio download and streaming peek at the video for the previously unheard track "A Night with the Jersey Devil" on his website. Both audio and video will be available on the site from 12:01am Friday, October 31 until 11:59pm Sunday, November 2. The creepy video for "A Night with the Jersey Devil" was directed by long-time Springsteen visual-collaborator Thom Zimny.

And what, may you ask, makes this video creepy? Because it's about Jersey of course -- and as we all know, there's nothing creepier than that.

Springsteen posted this about the song:

"Dear Friends and Fans,
If you grew up in Central or South Jersey you grew up with the 'Jersey Devil.' Here's a little musical Halloween treat. Have fun!"

The lyrics to "A Night with the Jersey Devil"

Hear me now!
I was born 13th child, 'neath the 13th moon
Spit out all hungry and born anew
Daddy drag me to the river tie me in rocks
Throw me in where it's deep and wide
I go down, I don't die
Hole in the river bottom, I crawl through
Come back kill six brothers and sisters, kill papa too
Sway down Mama, sway down low
They gonna know me wherever I go

Into my bed with her kerosene my mama creep
Set my flesh to burning, whilst I sleep
I burn, burn, burn, till my soul burn black
Black rains fall, I come back, I come back
Get down Mama, get down low
They gonna know me wherever I go

16 witches, cast 16 spells
Make me a guitar outta skin and human skull
Sing you a song like the wind in the sandy loam
Bring you baby out your happy home

Ram's head, forked tail, clove hoof, love's my trail
I sup on your body, sip on your blood like wine
Out world theirs, this world mine
So kiss me baby till it hurts
God lost in heaven, we lost on earth
Sway down Mama, sway down low
They gonna know me wherever I go
Wherever I go, wherever I go

Well I got a brand new lover
I love her yes I do,
She's my one and only and her name is Baby Blue…
