Tempo di blues

Ecco alcune canzoni con le quali mi identifico. Questa lista sarà aggiornata man mano che le scoprirò.

LEROY CARR

How long babe how long
Has that evenin’ train been gone?
How long, how, how long, baby how long?

Went and asked at the station: ‘why’s my baby leavin’ town?’
You were disgusted, nowhere could peace be found
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?

I can hear the whistle blow’n but I cannot see no train
And it’s deep down in my heart baby, there lies an aching pain
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?

Sometimes I feel so disgustin’ and I feel so blue
That I hardly know what in this world baby just to do
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?

And if I could holler, like I was a mountain train
I’d go up on the mountain and I’d call my baby back
But for how long, how, how long, baby how long?

And someday you gonna be sorry that you done me wrong
But it will be too late, I will be gone
For so long, so long, baby so long?

My mind gets a ramblin’, I feel so bad
Thinkin’ about the bad luck that I have had
For how long, how, how long, baby how long?

My gal treats me so dog gone mean…
Just give me another shot

Ci sono molte canzoni di Nat King Cole che adoro, ma la mia preferita è “Straighten up and fly right”.
Credo che mi piaccia almeno tanto quanto ”Volare, nel blu dipinto di blu”.

A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air,
The monkey thought that everything 
was on the square.
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey 
off his back,
The monkey grabbed his neck and said, 
“Now listen, Jack…” 

Straighten up and fly right,
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.
Ain’t no use in divin’,
What’s the use in jivin’?
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.

The buzzard told the monkey, 
You are chokin’ me.
Release your hold and I’ll set you free.
The monkey looked the buzzard right 
dead in the eye and said,
Your story’s so touching, but it sounds 
just like a lie.

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.

Ain’t no use in divin’
Ain’t no good in jivin’
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow – your – top.

Fly right!
