Muziek natuurlijk!

Als je na een dag vol indrukken zit, is het lekker om even te gaan liggen en muziek te luisteren.
En de laatste tijd is het weer regelmatig Johnny Cash. Sowieso heerlijk in de auto. (“Well, go on down to Jackson, go ahead and wreck your health!”)

Hoewel het niet bij zijn typische hits en repertoire hoort, staat dit nummer dit nummer regelmatig op repeat bij mij:

De cadans en moodyness is precies goed! 🙂

Dus Mr. Cash gaat sowieso mee.


Mooie tekst ook:

I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.
I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I’ll always be around..and around and around and
around and around

I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back again, and again and again and again and again…
