    Amazing song. Great clip.

    Love the key change that leads back to the final chorus

    Nice. Cold Chisel never got their due here in Canadaland.
    Quite Springsteen-like.

    Saw a wonderful concert with Joe Walsh at Red Rocks west of Denver. He did a great rendition of this, and introduced it as "The Colorado National Anthem."



    ... I wanna run away and go live at Daryl's House!

    And here's a version sung by a school choir of 6-7 year olds..gorgeous stuff

    Good movie too, the scene with the song was very poignant

    After Chisel disbanded and Jimmy went solo, he definitely got very Springsteen-esque

    Nice intro by David Lindley on this one

    Yep, very Bruce-oid, in a good way.
    Singer has a strong rock voice.
    Lindley's guitar is a bonus.

    Keith Urban does this great solo acoustic cover....
    And love the audience singing the last chorus...

    Have you seen this version with Barnes? Urban looks so nervous!
