老歌亂談(830)It Ain't Me Babe

此曲為Bob Dylan所寫,並收錄在他1964的專輯《Another Side of Bob Dylan》中。歌曲說的是一名男子要離開女友,主要是認為無法達成女友的各種需求,眼看招惹不起,不如趁早開溜,自承不是女友適合的對象。

一些寫Dylan相關傳記的作者,普遍都同意這首歌的靈感和Dylan的前女友Suze Rotolo有關,Dylan也自承他開始寫這首歌時,正是1963去義大利找Rotolo的期間。Dylan和Rotolo於1961相遇並一見鐘情,次年倆人同居,但女方家庭並不贊同,或也因此將Rotolo帶回義大利去讀書 ( Rotolo是義裔美國人 )。1963,Dylan出了張專輯《The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan》,專輯封套採用倆人依偎走在路上的相片,可見當時的濃情蜜意。而倆人卻又在不久後的1964分手,或許也是應了那句「因瞭解而分開」?( 其實是雙方各有人生追尋目標而難以配合 )。自此張相片面世之後,Rotolo的一輩子似乎都籠罩在Dylan的陰影之下,也使她甚不以為然。而奇怪的是,2008 Rotolo出了一本書:《A Freewheelin' Time: A Memoir of Greenwich Village in the Sixties》,書的內容和當年的這段感情無關,而封面竟沿用了她和Dylan的那張相片。促銷乎?不知也。Rotolo於2010因肺癌過世,享年67歲。另也有人認為此曲和Dylan之後的女友Joan Baez有關,但似乎不像,Dylan和Baez在1965才鬧不合。事實上,Joan Baez亦有翻唱此曲。

此曲發行後約一年,美國搖滾樂團The Turtles翻唱,改為民謠搖滾曲風,竟然一舉拿下告示牌排行榜的第8名,也是該團打響名號的首支熱門曲 ( The Turtles最為知名的應是1967的《Happy Together》)。美國鄉村歌手Johnny Cash與女歌手June Carter也在1965共錄此曲,走的是鄉村曲風,倆人後來還結為夫妻。僅管歌曲講的是分手,由以上的翻唱者看來,這反而是首「幸運之歌」!

Go 'way from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I'm not the one you want, babe
I'm not the one you need
You say you're lookin' for someone
Never weak but always strong
To protect you an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door
But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe
Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want, babe
I will only let you down
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you
Someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you an' more
But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe
Go melt back into the night, babe
Everything inside is made of stone
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call
A lover for your life an' nothing more
But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe
