Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Albums: Darkness On The Edge Of Town (1978)

In the summer that I was baptized
My father held me to his side
As they put me to the water
He said how on that day I cried

We were prisoners of love
A love in chains
He was standin' in the door
I was standin' in the rain
With the same hot blood
Burning in our veins

Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)

All of the old faces
Ask you why you're back
They fit you with position
And the keys to your daddy's Cadillac

In the darkness of your room
Your mother calls you by your true name
You remember the faces
The places, the names
You know it's never over
It's relentless as the rain

Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)

In the Bible Cain slew Abel
And East of Eden, mama, he was cast
You're born into this life paying
For the sins of somebody else's past

Well daddy worked his whole life
For nothing but the pain
Now he walks these empty rooms
Looking for something to blame
You inherit the sins
You inherit the flames

Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)

Lost but not forgotten
From the dark heart of a dream
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
Adam raised a Cain (Yeah)
