(Blues for) Robert Johnson

Pochette de l'album Balboa Island.

Difficile d’être un groupe de blues sans rendre hommage à la légende du genre. Tous les clichés sont au rendez-vous, du train qui s’éloigne en sifflant dans le lointain jusqu’à l’inévitable pacte avec le diable.

Paroles

In days gone by
I’m gonna tell you ’bout my love
In days gone by
Tell you ’bout my love
You got me talkin’ to you baby
But you don’t just don’t hear me at all

A clear blue sky
Now the rains have gone
Prepared to die
Just to play his songs
They say he sang ’em for the devil
But I guess he’ll never play again

Well, bye bye train
Don’t you know you left me behind
Well, bye bye train
Don’t you know you left me behind
As the last diseappearing down (?)
I just know you’re never coming back

Now you’ve been fighting
Fighting back these tears
Said you’ve been fighting, baby,
Fighting back these tears
You’ve been here in hell and heaven
Now you know you’re going down for years (?)

So now you’re coming back
Walking through my pain
How could I check you in?
I’d have to be insane
Leave me for the rats [???]
Baby could you ever be that way

Said a clear blue sky
Now the rains have gone
Prepared to die
Just to sing his song
They said he played ’em for the devil
I guess I’d know he’d never sing again
Never sing again, never sing again, babe

Out in the distance
I can hear that whistle blowin’
Out in the distance, somewhere
I hear that whistle blowin’
It’s a train I know now baby (?)
But I don’t know, no, just where it’s going

Well, bye bye train
Don’t you know you left me behind
Well, bye bye train
Don’t you know you left me behind
Left me behind, left me behind
Bye bye train, left me behind

In days gone by
I’m gonna tell you ’bout my love
In days gone by
Tell you ’bout my love
Clear blue sky
Now the rains have gone
I can feel my love’s comin’ on
They’ll sing your praise
One above (?)
They’ll sing your praise, baby
One above (?)
