In the video 'We Take Care of Our Own, Bruce Springsteen plays in what looks like a closed down warehouse. Black and white images of economic degradation, people of various ethnicity walking through the streets or focusing on tasks at work scroll by, with the lyrics subtitled across the screen.
“I been looking for the map that leads me home,” Springsteen sings. “I been stumbling on good hearts turned to stone / The road of good intentions has gone dry as a bone / We take care of our own / We take care of our own / Wherever this flag’s flown, we take care of our own.”
The song has been picked by President Obama's re-election campaign
The other songs picked by Obama’s reelection team include “I Got You” by Wilco, “Roll With The Changes” by REO Speedwagon, “You’ve Got The Love” by Florence + The Machine and, of course, “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green.
Springsteen’s live tour begins in March this year with a show in Atlanta, Georgia.
