"Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts" as written by and Brian Fallon....
We are the boys from Little Eden
We are the heart of Saturday night
We drink from the fountains off the fireworks
Sweat and bone for a better life

We like our choruses sung together
We like our arms in our brothers' arms
Call every girl we ever met Maria
But I only love Virginia's heart

Still we sing with our heroes, 33 rounds per minute
We're never going home until the sun says we're finished
I'll love you forever if I ever love at all
Wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts

Some things baby never told you
Some things papa done ain't right
Spent a lifetime just to get over
You always said my mama tried

Still we sing with our heroes, 33 rounds per minute
We're never going home until the sun says we're finished
I'll love you forever if I ever love at all
With wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts

So tonight I'll call you from a Fourth Street payphone
We'll sleep on the beach if we ain't got a ride
Someday I'll buy you that house on Cookman
We could sleep on the beach all night

Sleep on the beach if we ain't got a ride
Sleep on the beach all night
Sleep on the beach all night
Sleep on the beach if we ain't got a ride

    General CommentI saw the gaslight anthem live, and Brian said on stage that this song was about a venue in new jersey called asbury lanes. It's basically a bowling alley with a venue inside.

    The song is about the brotherhood that comes with growing up in and around asbury lanes with your best friends.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the second line is "We are the heart of saturday night" as in the Tom Waits song.

    General CommentWhen I saw him sing this live, Hollie (his wife) was sat at the side of the stage and as he sang "I only love Virginia's heart he looked to her and she smiled.
    Also in an interview he was asked "What's so lovable about Virginia's heart?" and his reply was: "Well, it compliments me every morning while I brush my teeth and sometimes takes me out for coffee, though I do get a few stares being out with an organ."

    Its a great interview since Brian appears to think that some of the interviewers questions are a bit stupid.
