Inspired by a Facebook post by John King (@notthatjohnking on twitter,) I quickly tweaked what he had written (just a touch) and added music. It became "If Springsteen Wrote My Life (Part I)" and inspired the entire "If Springsteen Wrote My Life"series. He's an old friend and a smart, funny guy.
Checking my Facebook just for a quick look to see
What social media's hating
A cop right behind me hits his police lights and now
I'm on the roadside waiting.
He's got my license and registration back with his badge and his gun
And if Springsteen wrote this, it'd sell millions son.
But I just got a ticket and this ain't Born To Run...
