The original premise for “Born To Run”, according to notes on the original draft, was to be about a car and not Wendy. Phrases like “wild angels”, “Stroll on”, and “the rebels” were considered and written in the margins. Bruce also wrote “Baby out there heroes are crushed to death behind the wheels of a gold Chevy 6”, never used it and he also wrote that he “looked out cross my hood + saw the highway buckle neath the wheels of A gold Chevy 6”. The handwritten first draft lyrics are on display at Duke University because the father of a student there bought them last year for almost 200,000 dollars. Springsteen’s daughter Jessica goes to Duke as well.
