Waiting Around To Die

martes 30 mayo 2017

Revisando conversaciones antiguas de nuestro foro me encontré con este hilo de “Videos Raros” en el que comentábamos viejos vídeos de músicos de los 60 y 70 difíciles de encontrar.
Uno de nuestros amigos nos presento este vídeo de Townes Van Zandt interpretando el clásico “Waiting Around To Die” y como estoy preparando una revisión he pensado que seria una buena idea recuperar este documento aquí.

El clip nos muestra al músico Tejano en su casa, tocando ante su novia y su vecino, y es estremecedor ver la expresión que van tomando sus rostros y la emoción a medida que avanza la interpretación.

Waiting Around To Die

Sometimes I don’t know where this dirty road is taking me
Sometimes I can’t even see the reason why
I guess I keep on gamblin’, lots of booze and lots of ramblin’
It’s easier than just a-waitin’ ‘round to die

One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
He beat her with a belt once cause she cried
She told him to take care of me, she headed down to Tennessee
It’s easier than just a-waitin’ ‘round to die

I came of age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
Seemed easier than just a-waitin’ ‘round to die

A friend said he knew where some easy money was
We robbed a man and brother did we fly
The posse caught up with me, drug me back to Muskogee
It’s two long years, just a-waitin’ ‘round to die

Now I’m out of prison, I got me a friend at last
He don’t steal or cheat or drink or lie
His name’s codeine, he’s the nicest thing I’ve seen
Together we’re gonna wait around and die
