Emmylou Harris - The Road

Emmylou Harris,Gram Parsons,los Burrito Brothers,Poco,The Eagles o la Nitty Gritty Dirt Band,fueron mis primeros pasos dentro del country -rock .Ahora en el año 2011,la pequeña carretera por la que empeze mi viaje,se ha ensanchado hasta ser una gran Highway.Pero las viejas carreteras,como las viejas heridas de la vida,siempre estan ahí ,formando parte de ti,al  igual que la primera media docena de libros que lees de pequeño o los primeros discos de rock.Emmylou Harris,saca nuevo trabajo y yo tan contento.La canción The Road,abre el album y es una maravilla.En ella,esta dama del country,echa de menos a Gram Parsons.Recuerda,que una vez fueron compañeros,en la carretera.En el viaje de la vida.

The Road
I can still remember every song you played
Long ago when we were younger and we rocked the night away.

How could I see a future then, where you would not grow old?
Such fire in our belly, such a hunger in souls.

I guess I've grown to love you in those words so often tired
Seen that we were traveling under some old lucky sign

I know I didn't say it then and no one was to blame
But the road we shared together once will never be the same.

Hey all along the way
Won't be coming round again.
Hey was a song I played.
And on the wings of a song, I'll fly away.

I wondered in the wilderness for a while I was so lost.
To everything there is a season and every blessing has it's cost.

So I took what you left to me and put it to some use
When looking for an answer with those three chords and the truth.

I come down from the mountain I come walking in your shoes.
I was taken for a glambler when I had no more to loose

For he put me on that path and how could I refuse.
And I would spend my whole life out here working on the blues.

Hey... Ay Hey. Hey. Ay. Hey. Heeeeeeeeey.

So I carried on, you can't be haunted by the past.
People come people, go and nothing ever lasts.

But I still think about you wonder where you are.
Can you see me from some place up there among the stars?

But down here under heaven there never was a chart
To guide our way across this crooked highway of the (part?)

And if it's only all about the journey in the end
On that road I'm glad I came to know my old friend.

Hey all along the way
Won't be coming round again.
Hey was a song I played.
And on the wings of a song, I'll fly away. I'll fly away.

Uno de los discos del año, sin duda; por eso, pasadas tantas semanas desde su publicación, me sorprendía no encontrar casi ninguna reseña del mismo, así que... bien por el Tornado. Emmylou está en un momento increíble.
