  • Chuck Berry - Dutchman

    Ça s'est glissé dans mon oreille l'autre jour. J'ai d'abord cru à William Shatner  période Has been le disque réalisé avec Ben Folds en 2004 et qui pour moi est une petite merveille.
    Non, c'était juste Chuck Berry sur son dernier album enregistré l'année de ses 90 ans.
    Il n'y a pas d'âge pour bien faire.


    Dutchman (paroles et musique Chuck Berry)

    A Bunch of guys was in this bar room
    Most of them had been there half the day
    They'd been telling jokes and fairy tales
    Lying just to pass the time away
    Then suddenly someone cracked the bar room door
    And then pushed it open wide
    And this huge tall dark dude
    Bowed his head and stepped inside
    I wonder where he's from?
    Some blonde asked.
    The wind must have blown him in
    But an old Dutchman offered him a drink.
    What will it be, whisky rum or gin?
    Sick and fido" a redhead shouted
    Show his way back to the street."
    But the Great Dane just walked over and licked his hand
    And lay down at his feet
    He said, "if you spare me that drink Dutchman,
    I promise I tell you how
    That I came to be the helpless sight that stands before you now"
    I used to be an artist, not one who sits and fiddle on the kerb
    But in my day and time
    My music was considered superb
    I wrote a song about a poor kid
    Raised down in New Orleans
    It didn't make the hall of fame,
    But it bought us shrimp, rice and beans
    He kept at it until he made the big time,
    Playing town after town
    Until he met a woman he fell in love with
    And it really turned his life around
    She had eyes like Cleopatra
    And a head of luxurious hair,
    With the brilliance of her beauty
    None other could compare
    When she lifted her eyes to his,
    Her lips would fall apart
    Each time she allowed him kiss her,
    It near petrified his heart
    But when he ask her would she marry him,
    He'd give her everything he had!
    She turned and walked away
    And it nearly drove him mad
    He promised her a half a million
    And would even pay in advance,
    If she would let him prove himself
    Or at least give him a chance
    And if he should go blind and hand to use his hands to feel,
    He would hire someone to do her work
    And prepare her every meal
    How could a man love a woman so much?
    Not one of you would think!
    Well, I did and I still do
    Hey Dutchman, you promised me a drink!
