Levon Helm com Johnny Cash - The Legend of Jesse James

 

 

The Death of Me

 

Frank James [Cash]: I've followed you through the ice and the burning sand.
When you turned around I'd be at your right hand.
We've torn a path to hell and back.
With broken bones and skin that's black and blue
But now I'm through.

You'll be the death of me
With your crazy schemes
Ain't cha gettin' too old for your daredevil dreams
We're past it now
Well can't cha see
That life with you
Will be the death of me

The railroad empries of the north is who we hurt
We've laid some good men down in the Missouri Dirt
When a legend dies is sure is sad
The good times are all turnin' bad
Real Fast
Our day is past

Well, You'll be the death of me
With your crazy schemes
Ain't cha gettin' too old for your daredevil dreams
We're past it now
Well can't cha see
That life with you
Will be the death of me


Jesse James [Helm]: Frank, you're gettin' to be
Some kind of a pain
I know that times are bad
But they'll be good again
It's easy money
And it's an eye for an eye
If that don't suit you
Then we'll have to say goodbye,
goodbye

Frank James: Jessie somethin' bads got into you
You ain't actin' like you use to do
How the hell are you going to raise your kids
In a world you have to keep them hid away
I'm leavin' today

Well, You'll be the death of me
With your crazy schemes
Ain't cha gettin' too old for your daredevil dreams
We're past it now
Well can't cha see
That life with you
Will be the death of me
Ya be the death of me
with your crazy schemes
Ain't cha gettin' too old for your daredevil dreams

Levon Helm (The Band)

 (The Last Waltz, Martin Scorsese, 1976)

 

 

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

 

Virgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danville train

'Til Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again

In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive

By May the tenth, Richmond had fell

It's a time I remember, oh so well

 

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singing

They went, "La, la, la"

 

Back with my wife in Tennessee, when one day she called to me

"Virgil, quick, come see, there go the Robert E. Lee"

Now I don't mind choppin' wood, and I don't care if the money's no good

Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest

But they should never have taken the very best

 

The night they drove old Dixie down 

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singing

They went, "La, la, la"

 

Like my father before me, I will work the land

And like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand

He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave

I swear by the mud below my feet

You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat

 

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singing

They went, "Na, na, na"

 

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singing

They went, "Na, na, na".

Cachimbos

O Cachimbo de Magritte é um blogue de comentário político. Ocasionalmente, trata também de coisas sérias. Sabe que a realidade nem sempre é o que parece. Não tem uma ideologia e desconfia de ideologias. Prefere Burke à burqa e Aron aos arianos. Acredita que Portugal é uma teimosia viável e o 11 de Setembro uma vasta conspiração para Mário Soares aparecer na RTP. Não quer o poder, mas já está por tudo. Fuma-se devagar e, ao contrário do que diz o Estado, não provoca impotência.
