Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Oh Susannah / Clementine / Jesus' Chariot (She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain") / God Save The Queen

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/84/Americana_%28Neil_Young_%26_Crazy_Horse_album%29.jpg

Το καλύτερο άλμπουμ εδώ και πολλά χρόνια είναι για το Neil Young το Americana . Το άλμπουμ  που είναι η πρώτη του στούντιο συνεργασία με τους Crazy Horse από το  Greendale (2003) κυκλοφόρησε στις5 Ιουνίου και έφτασε στο Νο 4 του Billboard. Κάποιοι κριτικοί το αμφισβήτησαν όμως στην πλειοψηφία τους οι κριτικές ήταν πολύ θετικές. Το Americana περιλαμβάνει διασκευές παλιότερων κομματιών αλλά αυτά είναι κυριολεκτικά αναδομημένα με εξαιρετικό τρόπο και με τονισμένα τα πολιτικά τους μηνύματα, που να τα γίνονται ενδιαφέροντα, όχι μόνο στην Αμερική, απ' όπου προέρχονται αλλά και σε όλο τον υπόλοιπο κόσμο.

 Oh Susannah



Oh Susannah, oh Susannah
Oh Susannah, oh Susannah
Oh Susannah, oh Susannah
Oh Susannah, oh Susannah
[then repeated constantly throughout verses]

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' down the hill

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me
'cause I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

Buckwheat cake was in her mouth
The tear was in her eye
Says I'm comin' from the South
Susannah don't you cry

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me
'cause I come from Alabama
with a B-A-N-J-O on my knee

Rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
Sun so hot I froze to death
Susannah don't you cry

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me
'cause I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' down the hill

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me
'cause I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

Well I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
I'm goin' to Louisiana
My true love for to see

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me
'cause I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

Yeah, I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
Yeah, I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
I come from Alabama
with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee




Clementine



 In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine?
Dwelt a miner forty niner, ?
And his daughter Clementine

Light she was and like a fairy,
And her shoes were number nine
Herring boxes, without topses,
Sandals were for Clementine

Clementine, Clementine!
Oh my darling, Clementine! ?

Drove she ducklings to the water
Ev'ry morning just at nine,
Hit her foot against a splinter
Fell into the foaming brine.

Ruby lips above the water,
Blowing bubbles, soft and fine,
But, alas, I was no swimmer,
So I lost my Clementine.

Clementine, Clementine!
Oh my darling, Clementine!

And the miner forty-niner
Soon began to weep and pine
Thought he oughta join his daughter
Now he's with his Clementine

In my dreams she still doth haunt me,
Robed in garments soaked in brine.
Though in life I used to hug her,
Now in death, I'll draw the line

Clementine, Clementine!
Oh my darling, Clementine!

How I missed her, How I missed her!
How I missed my Clementine,
So I kissed her little sister,
And I forgot my Clementine.

Clementine, Clementine!
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Clementine, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone, Clementine!
Clementine, Clementine!
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Clementine, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone, Clementine!

Clementine!





Jesus' Chariot (She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain")



She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain, she'll be coming round the mountain,
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes

She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses, she'll be driving six white horses,
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes

Oh, we'll all go out to meet her when she comes
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her when she comes

Oh, we'll all go out to meet her, we'll all go out to meet her,
We'll all go out to meet her when she comes

She'll be wearing red pajamas when she comes
She'll be wearing red pajamas when she comes

She'll be wearing red pajamas, she'll be wearing red pajamas,
She'll be wearing red pajamas when she comes

She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes
She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes
She will have to sleep with Grandma, she will have to sleep with Grandma,
She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes

God Save The Queen



 God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen,
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen.

(Long may she reign)

O Lord, and God of us,
Scatter the evil lies,
And make them fall.
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their empty tricks,
On thee our hopes we fix,
God save the Queen.

(Long may she reign)
(God save the Queen)

(My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!)

(Let freedom ring!) x3
