DON’T THINK TWICE, IT’S ALL RIGHT (Bob Dylan 1962)

Scritta nel lontano 1962 ed inclusa nell’album “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan“, diventa presto uno dei cavalli di battaglia di quel tempo.

Lo stile country-folk, il ritmo ondeggiante e piacevole. Il brano venne scritto circa nel periodo in cui la fidanzata di allora di Dylan, Suze Rotolo prolungò a tempo indeterminato la sua permanenza in Italia. La saltellante e gioiosa melodia del pezzo è basata su quella di un brano del folksinger Paul Clayton.

Il sunto di tutto sta nelle parole: I give her my heart but she wanted my soul”gli doniamo il nostro cuore…ma loro vogliono solo le nostre anime!

Vi propongo questa magnifica versione live con Eric Clapton.

“It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe

It don’t matter, anyhow

An’ it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe

If you don’t know by now

When your rooster crows at the break of dawn

Look out your window and Ìll be gone

Yoùre the reason Ìm trav’lin’ on

Don’t think twice, it’s all right

 

It ain’t no use in turnin’ on your light, babe

That light I never knowed

An’ it ain’t no use in turnin’ on your light, babe

Ìm on the dark side of the road

Still I wish there was somethin’ you would do or say

To try and make me change my mind and stay

We never did too much talkin’ anyway

So don’t think twice, it’s all right

 

It ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal

Like you never did before

It ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal

I can’t hear you any more

Ìm a-thinkin’ and a-wond’rin’ all the way down the road

I once loved a woman, a child I’m told

I give her my heart but she wanted my soul

But don’t think twice, it’s all right

 

Ìm walkin’ down that long, lonesome road, babe  

Where Ìm bound, I can’t tell

But goodbyès too good a word, gal

So Ìll just say fare thee well

I ain’t sayin’ you treated me unkind

You could have done better but I don’t mind

You just kinda wasted my precious time

But don’t think twice, it’s all right”
