"Bring Them Home"

(If You Love Your Uncle Sam)

(Click to listen)
"Penned by Pete Seeger during the Vietnam War, 'Bring Them Home' quickly acquired anthemic power in the anti-war movement. Springsteen first recorded the song in January 2006 and added a final lead vocal during his European tour, at a studio in Oslo, Norway. His poignant rendition, performed frequently on the Seeger Sessions tour, adds several new verses and connects the song to a much earlier topical song, 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home.' 'Bring Them Home' was written in 1965 and originally released on Pete's 1971 Columbia album, 'Young vs. Old.' "
