CHARLEY PATTON : DOWN THE DIRT ROAD [1929]

Ξεκινάμε ένα ταξίδι στα μπλουζ [μεγάλης ή μικρής διάρκειας, θα δείξει] με τον “γεννήτορα” των μπλουζ του Δέλτα, Charley Patton, εδώ σε ηχογράφηση του 1929.

We start a journey to the blues [long distance or short, time will tell] with the “genitor” of the Delta Blues,
Charley Patton, here on a 1929 recording.

I’m goin’ away to a world unknown
I’m goin’ away to world unknown
I’m worried now, but I won’t be worried long
My rider got somethin’, she’s tryin’ a keep it hid
My rider got somethin’, she’s tryin’ a keep it hid
Lord, I got somethin’ to find that somethin’ with
I feel like choppin’, chips flyin’ everywhere
I feel like choppin’, chips flyin’ everywhere
I been to the Nation, Lord, but I couldn’t stay there
Some people say them oversea blues ain’t bad
(Why, of course they are)
Some people say them oversea blues ain’t bad
(What was a-matter with ’em?)
It must not a-been them oversea blues I had
Every day seem like murder here
(My God, I’m no sheriff)
Every day seem like murder here
I’m gonna leave tomorrow, I know you don’t bid my care
Can’t go down any dirt road by myself
Can’t go down any dirt road by myself
(My Lord, who ya gonna carry?)
I don’t carry my, gonna carry me someone else

      Well, we’re talking about the genitor of the Delta Blues. He MUST have had some soul. Patton is among the few persons that made us who we are. Music wise anyway.
