Ok, I dig the explanations earlier posted. However there's still something I'mnot sure about (which actually says more about me being stubborn maybe). Initially when listening to the song I was pretty convinced he sang: "where mister winter rules" instead of "when mister when you're young". Even now I still find it hard to agree with this text as Springsteen sings a little bit unclear every now and then. So, is this really meant to be the genuine text, even as it is grammatically incorrect, or am I out there? What, if so, is the meaning in just that phrase? I could interpret it as meaning that he was raised saying "mister" to everybody his senior, which is how I and I think the majority of mankind has been raised with.The phrase "where mister winter rules" however could very well fit in the song because it is to me another aspect of places where old fashioned" ethical manners are of high value. It also adds to the grimmcharacter of the song, living life in a somewhat forgotten town where life has it's own rules and pace, not being the best place to start up some carreer, if any. A bit like the steeltown from the deerhunter.Please enlighten me on this.I'm fully willing to accept the truth, but I was just wondering...
