老歌亂談(662)Honky Tonk Downstairs

推薦 1 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



美國鄉村歌手George Jones在1968年出了一張專輯《Sings the Songs of Dallas Frazier》,顧名思義,此專輯中全部的10首歌,果都是由Dallas Frazier所寫,而《Honky Tonk Downstairs》即為其中一首。專輯的成績不差,拿下了鄉村榜的第14名。

1970,美國鄉村搖滾樂團POCO翻唱此曲,收錄在與樂團的同名專輯中。POCO樂團的來頭不小,其中有兩位是原Buffalo Springfield樂團的成員 ( Neil Young也曾是團員之一 ),由於原團解散故而另組POCO,而仍承襲原來的曲風。老鷹合唱團的創團Bass手Randy Meisner,也曾加入過POCO一段時間。












Suzi Quatro則是在1976翻唱此曲,並收錄在她的專輯《Aggro-Phobia》中。Suzi Quatro將此曲的節奏加重加快,變得更具搖滾味。



Well, it won't be long now
Until that 'ol sun goes down
And darkness helps me hide my shameful tears.
My wife works all night long
For a man who's halfway gone
She's the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs.

It's a shame she wears the name
Of a man who's locked and chained
To a bottle that's destroyin' all hopes and cares.
To the men with the hungry eyes
She works and hides her pride
She's the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstair

It's a shame she wears the name
Of a man who's locked and chained
To a bottle that's destroyin' all hopes and cares.
To the men with the hungry eyes
She works and hides her pride
She's the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs.

She's the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs...
