The lyrics to Bruce Springsteen's iconic "Thunder Road" have long been debated. Does he sing: “The screen door slams, Mary’s dress sways” or "Mary’s dress waves?”
Bruce appeared Monday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and attempted to clear up the confusion.
Holding a copy of the vinyl album, The Boss said, “This record is almost 50 years old. 50 years ago I was a sociopath. I was insane about every single detail that had anything to do with music, my album, my album cover, my lyrics. I went over everything with a fine-tooth comb so everything would be perfect and completely accurate. The lyrics to ‘Thunder Road’ are in this album. The correct lyrics.”
Springsteen then added he's been "singing sways for almost 50 years" before opening the Born to Run album jacket to read the lyrics.
