"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 1999 Reunion Tour, the song was performed frequently. It has remained popular in concert, and is often paired with "Working On The Highway" in performance. When performing the song live, Springsteen frequently plays the first few bars of The Rolling Stones's "Honky Tonk Women" before the first verse.
