Lyric of the Day

I got the Talkin’ Blues. Bob says it best I think. This is my very favorite Bob Marley record. Since I own every single one (nope, don’t even give it a thought. Every. Single. One.) that’s saying something. I embeded the whole album. If you’ve got the time and inclination, give it a listen. If you have questions regarding the interview (need it deciphered, really) I will more than happily give you a hand.

 

Talkin’ Blues – Bob Marley

Bob speakingmusic, group, get together. Cause, I never think about it, you know, cause, you know, music is music, and if you want to play music then you can play music if you have people you want to play music with, then you can play music. You know what I mean? – Deep, Bob. Real deep.
Yeah! Oh, yeah! Now!
Cold ground was my bed last night
And rock was my pillow, too;
Cold ground was my bed last night
And rock was my pillow, too.
I’m saying: talkin’ blues,
talkin’ blues;
They say your feet is just too big for your shoes.
Talkin’ blues, talkin’ blues:
Your feet is just too big for your shoes.
Yeah, I’ve been down on the rock for so long,
I seem to wear a permanent screw;
I’ve been down on the rock for so long,
I seem to wear a permanent screw.
But-a I – I’m gonna stare in the sun,
Let the rays shine in my eyes.
I – I’m a gonna take a just-a one step more
‘Cause I feel like bombin’ a church –
Now – now that you know that the preacher is lyin’.
So who’s gonna stay at home
When the freedom fighters are fighting?
Cause it is brighter on the outside then it is really on the inside
so don’t you take our life for granted
knowing where we’re bound
These words will fill another mystery now that the day draw nigh,
and we still riding high, yes we still riding high.
Talkin’ blues, talkin’ blues:
They say your feet is just too big for your shoes,
Talkin’ blues, keep on talkin’ blues
They say – you hear what they say –
Didn’t you hear?Cold ground was my bed,
Rockstone – rockstone – rockstone was my pillow;
Cold ground was my bed last night,
And rock was my pillow, too.
Love,
