Contra el viento

Empecé a encontrarme a mí mismo buscando,
Buscando refugio una y otra vez.

Contra el viento,
Un poco contra el viento,
Me encuentro a mí mismo buscando refugio contra el viento.

Aún estoy corriendo contra el viento,
Soy viejo ahora, pero aún corro contra el viento.

Against the wind

It seems like yesterday

but it was long ago

Jane was lovely, she was the queen of my nights

There in the darkness with the radio, playing low

And the secrets that we shared the mountains that we moved

Caught like a wildfire out of control

till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me

How she swore that it never would end

I remember how she held me, oh so tight

Wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then

Against the wind

We were running against the wind

We were young and strong

We were running against the wind

And the years rolled slowly past

And I found myself alone

Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends

I found myself further and futher from my home

And I guess I lost my way

There were oh so many roads

I was living to run and running to live

Never worried about paying or ever how much I owed

Moving eight miles a minute for months

At a time

Breaking all of the rules that would bend

I began to find myself searching

Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind

A little something against the wind

I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifter days are past me now

I’ve got so much more to think about

Deadlines and commitments

What to leave in, whar to leave out

Against the wind

I’m still runnin’ against the wind

I’m older now but still runnin’ against the wind

Well I’m older now but still runnin’

Against the wind, against the wind

I’m still runnin’ against the wind

I’m still runnin’ against the wind

Against the wind

I’m still runnin’ against the wind

Por la senda: who’ll stop the rain?

Confusión en el suelo.
Los hombres de bien a través de los siglos.

De bien.

Siglos.

 

Long as I remember
The rain been comin’ down.
Clouds of myst’ry pourin’
Confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages,
Tryin’ to find the sun;
And I wonder, Still I wonder,
Who’ll stop the rain.
I went down Virginia, Seekin’
shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable,
I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals,
Wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, Still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain.

Heard the singers playin’,
How we cheered for more.
The crowd had rushed together,
Tryin’ to keep warm.
Still the rain kept pourin’,
Fallin’ on my ears.
And I wonder, Still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain.

Por la senda: witch blues

Seguimos viajando a casa,  todos los días.

El enorme Steve Forbert.

Witch blues

Hell ain’t got no fury
That can match your kind of scorn
You’ve got a lot of people
Sorta sorry you were born

The way you treated Jim . . . yeah
Was more than I could understand
He took it sittin’ down . . . yeah
You took it way on out of hand

You’re makin’ lots of bad news
(You’re) spreadin’ ‘round them witch blues

When you come walkin’ in . . . yeah
I look for some good place to hide
And if I find there ain’t one
I do my best to get outside

The first time that I met you
You seemed like first-rate company
Don’t that only go to show now
How wrong a guy can sometimes be?

You’re makin’ lots of bad news
Spreadin’ ‘round them witch blues
You’re makin’ lots of bad news
Yes, you’re givin’ people witch blues

You do not ride a broom, no
And you don’t wear a pointed hat
But you can turn men into mice . . . yeah
You know a lot of tricks like that

And then I’ve seen you shatter women
Just like plate glass window panes
No, I don’t know where you came from
But I would bet it’s mighty strang
