Had enough of heartbreak and pain
I had a little sweet spot for the rain
For the rain and skies of gray
Hello sunshine, won't you stay

You know I always liked my walking shoes
But you can get a little too fond of the blues
You walk too far, you walk away
Hello sunshine, won't you stay

You know I always loved a lonely town
Those empty streets, no one around
You fall in love with lonely, you end up that way
Hello sunshine, won't you stay

You know I always liked that empty road
No place to be and miles to go
But miles to go is miles away
Hello sunshine, won't you stay
And miles to go is miles away
Hello sunshine, won't you stay
Hello sunshine, won't you stay
Hello sunshine

Yes, good catch.   
 

Sure does... but I'm bumping from 6 to 7.

That's a pretty fair comparison. This is clean and smooth like his work. Some folks hated Glenn for making 'Country' more 'Pop', but his stuff holds up well - unlike some of the shtuff that passes for 'Country' these days. Ugh.

I have the DVD of GC's farewell tour - I haven't worked up the guts to watch it yet.

Unfortunately, no Bruce is better than some Bruce.
Well, there you go. The spice of life and all that. I don't generally buy into the fanatic appreciation of all things Bruce, but this is one of the best things I've heard this guy put out there. And then to follow with Roy Buchanan - good God, RP. This is inspired stuff!!!
midnight cowboy but that's all good
Certainly channelling his inner Gordon Lightfoot and in this case that's a good thing!
Lovely song. Great cover art. Carry the West.
Moonlight Motel is a nice cut off this album as well
Love this album,more and more !
Chris Gurl loves this song
Good Time Bruce Has Got The Blues

Everybody's goin' away
Said they're movin' to LA
There's not a soul I know around
Everybody's leavin' town
Some caught a freight, some caught a plane
Find the sunshine, leave the rain
They said this town's a waste of time
I guess they're right, it's wastin' mine
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Ya know my heart keeps tellin' me
"You're not a kid at thirty-three"
"Ya play around, ya lose your wife"
"Ya play too long, you lose your life"
I got my pills to ease the pain
Can't find a thing to ease the rain
I'd love to try and settle down
But everybody's leavin' town
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues

Well, it was definitely born to run.

If you'd asked me to gues the artist, I'd say Beck.   Nice. 
Thank you Bruce.

Yep, I heard that too, hints of it anyway.

Goodtime Charlie.

I believe "ballad from the same album" refers to "Moonlight Motel" (from the link posted), not "Hello Sunshine".
Uh, interesting cover art for a Bruce Springsteen album.

Curious what this album is going to be like. The shuffle and instrumentation on this remind me a bit of "Everybody's Talkin'."  That's not a bad thing...
 
I also hear a bit of Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues by Danny O'Keefe
I like this single.  Always reminds me of Glen Campbell's version of "Gentle On My Mind."

Nice 70's vibe. A soupçon of Nilsson.
 
I was thinking some Charley Pride. Could easily see Nilsson too.
Makes me curious.  Will "Sundown" be a cover of Gordon Lightfoot?
nice, I like it, curious of the other tunes
