(音樂:Hank Williams – Lost Highway)

Lost Highway





喜歡聼鄉村曲子的朋友對漢克威廉斯
(Hank Williams)的大名應該都很熟悉。
漢克威廉斯生於1923年阿拉巴馬州的一個小鎮上,
是美國二十世紀最有影響力,
最有天分的音樂家。 一生創作無數,
在鄉村音樂和搖滾樂壇上極有貢獻。
漢克威廉斯天生患了一種脊椎病,
使他長期的患背痛,
也是後來他酗酒磕藥的原因之一。

他的音樂也顯得兩極化,
有的反映他的放蕩生涯,
例如這首 Lost Highway,
有的極具宗教的虔誠,
例如 I Saw the Light。

他最有名的歌。
有 “Your Cheaten Heart”, “Cold, Cold Heart”,
“Lovesick Blues”, 和 Hey Good Lookin等。

1953年,他因爲用藥過度,
死在前往俄亥俄州表演的路途上,
應驗了他在這首Lost Highway 歌詞的描寫。
一代巨星就此隕落。

Lost Highway

Im a rollin stone all alone and lost
For a life of sin I have paid the cost
When I pass by all the people say
Just another guy on the lost highway

Just a deck of cards and a jug of wine
And a womans lies makes a life like mine
O the day we met, I went astray
I started rolling down that lost highway

I was just a lad, nearly 22
Neither good nor bad, just a kid like you
And now Im lost, too late to pray
Lord I paid the cost, on the lost highway

Now boys dont start to ramblin round
On this road of sin ,or youre sorrow bound
Take my advice or youll curse the day
You started rollin down that lost highway

I like the singer and the song as well. It's too bad that he died that young.

小椪鼠,真得很可惜。那之前,他因爲酗酒磕藥過度,剛被炒魷魚。到俄亥俄州演唱,是準備東山再起,但是毒癮喝酒癮要戒,談何容易。實在可惜。

Hank Williams was one of my favourite country singers and Lost Highway is also one of my favourite country songs. Thanks for sharing it.
