Un coup de blues pour la route

 

Un dessin de SZomorab. Merci. 


Son House, que nous avions présenté ici le 8 juin 2012 (mais la vidéo a été débranchée par le propriétaire des droits) a été choisi aujourd'hui pour deux raisons, son anglais n'est pas créolisé et donc compréhensible, il est l'emblème du Delta Blues que mon filleul aime bien, et qu'il pourra écouter en préparant son Bornes To Fly 2015. Le voici dans une chanson d'Austin et Hunter, pour changer : Downhearted Blues



Mmmm mmmm
Got up this mornin'
Feelin' sick and bad
I'm thinkin' 'bout the good time
That I once have had

I said, I got up this mornin'
And I said, I'm feelin' so sick and bad
Yeah, I'm just thinkin' 'bout the good times, children
That I, I once have had

Did you ever love
When they didn't love you?
You know there wasn't satisfaction
Didn't care what in the world you do

I said you ever love
I said, when they did not love you?
Yeah, didn't look like there'd be satisfaction
Didn't care what in this old world you do

I tell her come here little girl
Why don't you sit down on my knee?
I just wanna tell you how
You have been treatin' me

I said, run here little girl
I said sit right down here on my knee
You know, I just wanna tell you
Just how you've been treatin' me

You know, that's a shame
Ole dirty shame
I'm so sorry the day, honey
I ever knowed your name

I said, you know that's a shame
I said, it's a low down, ole dirty shame
Oh, the way you been treatin' me
Is a low down, ole dirty shame

You know, love, love is a worried
Old heart disease
Look like the very one you be lovin'
Is so hard to please

I said, love
I said, is a worried old heart disease
Look like the very one you be lovin'
Is so confound hard to please

You know, I go into my room
I sat down and cried
I didn't have no blues
But I wasn't satisfied

Yes, I went in my room
And I said, and I sat down and I cried
Yes, I didn't have no blues
But I just wasn't satisfied

You know, did you ever get up in the mornin'
With the blues three different ways?
You had two mind to leave here
And you didn't have but one such stay

Did you ever get up in the mornin'
With the blues three different ways?
You know you had two mind to leave here
But you didn't have but one such stay

Son House, un type simplement beau jusqu'à la fin, qui nous explique ce qu'est le blues au fond, et ça c'est une perle :
