Annotated lyrics for Springsteen’s song, ‘Drop Down and Cover Me,’ one page, 8.5 x 11, done for the final draft printed on the 1998 Tracks box set booklet. It seems that this sheet was part of a larger stack that served as a proof that was passed through Springsteen for final revisions before the lyrics got printed on the booklet. Springsteen makes corrections to seven lines of the song, crossing out various passages and adding the correct lyrics, including, “Let our love blind us.” In fine condition, with a staple hole to top left corner. This Born in the U.S.A outtake would later evolve into ‘Cover Me,’ but with different music. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
