Η σχέση ακροατή – μουσικής είναι μια υπόθεση προσωπική και αδιευκρίνιστη. Κι αυτό ισχύει ακόμα και για τις περιπτώσεις λαϊκής συναίνεσης, κατασκευασμένης ή όχι.
Εν πάση περιπτώσει, για μένα δυο λέξεις φτάνουν για να περιγράψουν αυτό το τραγούδι του Dickey Betts “απόλυτη ευτυχία”. Και δεν είναι καθόλου απλό, όσο ίσως φαίνεται. Είναι ακριβώς το αντίθετο, ιδίως στους καιρούς που ζούμε.

The relation between music and the listener, is a personal and obscure affair. And this goes also for cases of popular consensus, fabricated or not.
Anyway, for me, two words are enough for defining this Dickey Betts‘ song: “sheer happiness.” And it’s not as simple as it might seem. It is quite the opposite, especially in the times we live in.

❝ Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can
And when it’s time for leavin’
I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man
My father was a gambler down in Georgia
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin’ down highway forty-one
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can
And when it’s time for leavin’
I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man
I’m on my way to New Orleans this mornin’
I’m leavin’ out of Nashville, Tennessee
They’re always having a good time down on the bayou
Lord, them Delta women think the world of me
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can
And when it’s time for leavin’
I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a ramblin’ man
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
