TOP 10: ICONIC ROCK SONGS OF ALL TIME

Bruce Springsteen wasn't thinking about Wendy when he wrote a first draft of his 1975 classic "Born to Run." Instead, he's got a gold Chevy 6 on his mind, according to the original lyrics, which make their public debut this week at Duke University. "Something as iconic as this song, it's going to be important to American history," said Duke University exhibit librarian Meg Brown, who found 25 books about Springsteen, mostly academic, in Duke's collections. "It came in at a time with a lot of change in American history and it made a significant difference."The lyrics will be displayed starting Thursday and continuing through Saturday at the Perkins Library. Then the sheet will move to the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Perkins from May 12 to June 27.
