The 'Streets of Philadelphia' singer, who spoke at the funeral of his longtime E Street Band saxophonist last week after he died from a stroke, has now posted the tribute speech on his official website.
Springsteen wrote: "This is a slightly revised version of the eulogy I delivered for Clarence at his memorial. I'd like to thank all our fans and friends who have comforted us over the past difficult weeks. For the big man..."
The eulogy read: "Clarence doesn't leave the E Street Band when he dies. He leaves when we die. It took a village to take care of Clarence Clemons. My pal was a tough act, but he brought things into your life that were unique and when he turned on that love light, it illuminated your world.
"I leaned on Clarence a lot; I made a career out of it in some ways. Those of us who shared Clarence's life, shared with him his love and his confusion. Though 'C' mellowed with age, he was always a wild and unpredictable ride."
Springsteen also paid tribute to Clemons's sons Nicky, Chuck, Jarod and Christopher, saying: "I see his light, his darkness, his sweetness, his roughness, his gentleness, his anger, his brilliance, his handsomeness, and his goodness."
He continued: "I'll miss my friend, his sax, the force of nature his sound was, his glory, his foolishness, his accomplishments, his face, his hands, his humour, his skin, his noise, his confusion, his power, his peace. But his love and his story, the story that he gave me, that he whispered in my ear, that he allowed me to tell... and that he gave to you... is gonna carry on."
Acts such as Janet Jackson, U2 and Coldplay have all paid tribute to Clemons since his death.
