Backpacker Magazine is reporting that the Boss has a new song out that has the Appalachian Trail in it.
The song is “Outlaw Pete” on Springsteen’s latest, “Working on a Dream.” It’s a ballad about a gunslinger that rides west to give up his lawless days. But first, he raises hell back east:

He was born a little baby on the Appalachian Trail
At six months old, he’d done three months in jail
He robbed a bank in his diapers and his little bare baby feet.
All he said was “Folks my name is Outlaw Pete”

No word on whether Baltimore Jack is thinking about changing his trail name.
