"Darlington County" is a 1984 song written and performed by Bruce Springsteen. It was released on the album Born in the U.S.A. and has remained a popular concert song for Springsteen and the E Street Band. The lyrics concern the protagonist and his buddy driving to Darlington County "looking for work on the county line", meeting girls along the way.
Live performance history
Darlington County was played in every leg of the Born in the U.S.A. Tour. The song did not emerge again until four days after the breakup with the Other Band. During the Reunion Tour, the song was performed frequently.
After the Attacks of September 11, the song (whose lyrics mention the World Trade Center) was not played until the third leg of The Rising Tour. On occasions, Springsteen did not sing the line about World Trade Center, instead he mouthed "Nine-Eleven" into the camera. It was played throughout the remainder of the tour and the song reappeared on the Magic Tour. The song has been played about 260 times through 2008.
