Lied van de week : week 36 - 2012

Duquesne whistle - Bob Dylan


 
Op 11 september brengt Bob Dylan zijn 35e (als ik het juist voorheb) album uit, Tempest. De eerste single daaruit is een heerlijk relaxt en "ouderwets" nummer dat onweerstaanbaar klinkt en het allerbeste laat verhopen. Net als wijn lijkt Dylan met de jaren beter te rijpen...

Je kan het album alvast hier bestellen.

Lyrics :

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing
Blowing like it's gonna sweep my world away
I wanna stop at Carmangale and keep on going
That Duquesne train gon' rock me night and day

You say I'm a gambler, you say I'm a pimp

But I ain't neither one

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing

Sounding like it's on a final run

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing

Blowing like she never blowed before
Little light blinking, red light glowing
Blowing like she's at my chamber door

You smiling through the fence at me

Just like you always smiled before

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing

Blowing like she ain't gon' blow no more

Can't you hear that Duquesne whistle blowing?

Blowing like the sky's gonna blow apart
You're the only thing alive that keeps me going
You're like a time bomb in my heart

I can hear a sweet voice steadily calling

Must be the mother of our lore

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing

Blowing like my woman's on board

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing

Blowing like it's gon' blow my blues away
You old rascal, I know exactly where you're going
I'll lead you there myself at the break of day

I wake up every morning with that woman in my bed

Everybody telling me she's gone to my head

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing

Blowing like it's gon' kill me dead

Can't you hear that Duquesne whistle blowing?

Blowing through another no good town

The lights on my lady's land are glowing

I wonder if they'll know me next time 'round
I wonder if that old oak tree's still standing
That old oak tree, the one we used to climb

Listen to that Duquesne whistle blowing

Blowing like she's blowing right on time
