Connecting Sjamboksa and If I Should Fall Behind (Springsteen)

This came up on the podcast with Jesse Jackson when we were talking about “Sjamboksa.” I recited the final couple verses and he immediately drew a connection to the end of Springsteen’s “If I Should Fall Behind.”

Given how big a Springsteen fan Dave is, and how many other Springsteen references are elsewhere on The Positions, I think it’s safe to assume there’s an intentional connection here, too.
