Springsteen’s new anti-Trump protest anthem

Springsteen with Grushecky

The song with was written by Bruce’s longtime friend Joe Grushecky and is called “That’s What Makes Us Great.”

“I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking,” Grushecky said. “I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ‘What do you think about singing on it?’ He gave it the Bruce treatment.”

Some of the lyrics are:

“Don’t tell me a lie/And sell it as a fact/I’ve been down that road before/And I ain’t goin’ back,” as well as “Don’t you brag to me/That you never read a book/I never put my faith/In a con man and his crooks.”

The Boss is no fan of Trump, of course,  and has been publicly critical of him expressing concern about the president’s competence to do the job he was elected to do, and what might happen if he really screws up.

No YouTube clip of the song yet, but you can download it at Joe Grushecky’s website.
