Le parole di questa canzone sono semplici, ma ti fanno sentire come se davvero ti trovassi nella giungla temendo per la vita

Whoa, thought it was a nightmare,
Lo, it's all so true,
They told me, "Don't go walkin' slow
'Cause Devil's on the loose."

Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Woa, Don't look back to see.

Thought I heard a rumblin'
Callin' to my name,
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries, "Take aim!"

Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Woa, Don't look back to see.

Over on the mountain
Thunder magic spoke,
"Let the people know my wisdom,
Fill the land with smoke."

Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Better run through the jungle,
Woa, Don't look back to see.

Live Version by Bruce Springsteen


During The River Tour, Bruce Springsteen used the chorus and the three verses (verse 1, verse 2, and verse 3 below) from the original Creedence Clearwater Revival version, and he added two or three more verses that he wrote.

The lyrics "Well last night they pulled him out of his house / And shot him in the street" would later be used in THEY KILLED HIM IN THE STREET ("They took him from his house and killed him in the street") and Bells of San Salvador ("Well they took him from his house / killed him in the street").

RUN THROUGH THE JUNGLE was performed at least 3 times during The River Tour (138 dates, October 1980 to September 1981). On this tour, the song was the show opener and was played in a rearranged slower version extended with two or three Springsteen-penned verses.

Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Whoa don't look back to see

Whoa thought it was a nightmare
Lord it was so true
They told me don't go walking slow
The devil's on the loose

Thought I heard a rumbling
Calling to my name
Two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries, "Take aim"

Over on the mountain
Thunder magic spoke
"Let the people know my wisdom,
Fill the land with smoke"

Now me and Robert Williams
We were out on Route Line 3
Well last night they pulled him out of his house
And shot him in the street

Now baby the land's on fire
It's written in blood in the sky
Men pulling shotguns out of the truck
The city's on fire tonight

Baby look out your window
Can't you see the tide's turning
Out across the cornfield
I see something burning
