  1. This is a Bruce Springsteen song from the album Nebraska (1982).

    Recorded by Ben Harper – June 27, 2000.

    One of my favorites from both artists.

    This song reminds me of all that is sacred and sorrowful.

  2. My Father’s House
    (written by Bruce Springsteen)
    as sung and played by Ben Harper

    Last night I dreamed that, I was a child
    Out where the pines grow, wild and tall
    I was trying to make it, home through the forest
    Before the darkness falls

    I heard the wind rustling, through the trees
    And ghostly voices, rose up from the fields
    I ran with my heart pounding, down that broken pathway
    With the devil snappin’ at my heels

    I broke through the trees, and there in the night
    My father’s house stood, shining hard and bright
    The branches and brambles tore my clothes and caused me harm
    But I ran, till I fell shaking in his arms

    I awoke and imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
    Will never again, sir, tear us from each other’s hearts
    I got dressed, and to that house I did ride
    From out on the road, I could see it’s windows shining in light

    I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
    A woman I didn’t recognize, spoke to me through a chained door
    I told her my story, and who I’d come for
    She said “I’m sorry, son, but no one by that name lives here anymore”

    My father’s house shines hard and bright
    It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
    Calling and calling, so cold and alone
    Shining `cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned
