  • nick cave and the bad seedsin the first born is dead albümünün açılış şarkısıdır. başlar başlamaz gaza getirtir, lakin sözler şöyledir:

    looka yonder! looka yonder!
    looka yonder! a big black cloud come!
    a big black cloud come!
    o comes to tupelo. comes to tupelo

    yonder on the horizon
    yonder on the horizon
    stopped at the mighty river
    stopped at the mighty river and
    sucked the damn thing dry
    tupelo-o-o, o tupelo
    in a valley hides a town called tupelo

    distant thunder rumble. distant thunder rumble
    rumble hungry like the beast
    the beast it cometh, cometh down
    the beast it cometh, cometh down
    wo wo wo-o-o
    tupelo bound. tupelo-o-o. yeah tupelo
    the beast it cometh, tupelo bound

    why the hen won't lay no egg
    can't get that cock to crow
    the nag is spooked and crazy
    o god help tupelo! o god help tupelo!
    o god help tupelo! o god help tupelo!

    ya can say these streets are rivers
    ya can call these rivers streets
    ya can tell ya self ya dreaming buddy
    but no sleep runs this deep
    no! no sleep runs this deep
    no sleep runs this deep
    women at their windows
    rain crashing on the pane
    writing in the frost
    tupelos' shame. tupelo's shame
    o god help tupelo! o god help tupelo!

    o go to sleep lil children
    the sandmans on his way
    o go to sleep lil children
    the sandmans in his way
    but the lil children know
    they listen to the beating of their blood
    listen to the beating of their blood
    listen to the beating of their blood
    listen to the beating of their blood
    they listen to the beating of their blood
    the sandman's mud!
    the sandman's mud!
    and the black rain come down
    the black rain come down
    the black rain come down
    water water everywhere
    where no bird can fly no fish can swim
    where no bird can fly no fish can swim
    no fish can swim
    until the king is born!
    until the king is born!
    in tupelo! tupelo-o-o!
    til the king is born in tupelo!

    in a clap-board shack with a roof of tin
    where the rain came down and leaked within
    a young mother frozen on a concrete floor
    with a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw
    tupelo-o-o! o tupelo!
    with a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw

    well saturday gives what sunday steals
    and a child is born on his brothers heels
    come sunday morn the first-born dead
    in a shoebox tied with a ribbon of red
    tupelo-o-o! hey tupelo!
    in a shoebox buried with a ribbon of red

    o ma-ma rock you lil' one slow
    o ma-ma rock your baby
    o ma-ma rock your lil' one slow
    o god help tupelo! o god help tupelo!
    mama rock your lil' one slow
    the lil one will walk on tupelo
    the lil one will walk on tupelo
    black rain come down, black rain come down
    tupelo-o-o! yeah tupelo!
    and carry the burden of tupelo
    tupelo-o-o! o tupelo! yeah!
    the king will walk on tupelo!
    tupelo-o-o! o tupelo!
    he carried the burden outa tupelo!
    tupelo-o-o! hey tupelo! [repeat]
    you will reap just what you sow

    did you read about the flood?
    it happened long time ago, in a little country town, way back in mississippi
    it rained and it rained, it rained both night and day
    the people got worried, they began to cry,
    "lord have mercy, where can we go now?"
    there were women and there was children, screaming and crying,
    "lord have mercy and a great disaster, who can we turn to now, but you?"
    the great flood of
    tupelo, mississippi
    it happened one evenin', one friday evenin', a long time ago,
    it rained and it started rainin'
    the people of tupelo, out on the farm gathering their harvest,
    a dark cloud rolled, way back in tupelo, mississippi, hmm, hmm)
    wasn't that a mighty time,
    wasn't that a mighty time?
    wasn't that a mighty time,
    a mighty time, that evenin'?
    it rained, both night and day
    the poor people that had no place to go, hmm,hmm
    a little town, called tupelo, mississippi
    i never forget it and i know you won't either

  • büyük üstad john lee hooker'ın* 1995 tarihli chill out albümünde yeralan müthiş blues eseri. gitarla o riff'i kendiniz çalıp usta'ya eşlik etmek istersiniz. hooker'ın sesi, gitarı ve ayaklarından gelen ritm dışında hiçbir enstrüman yoktur.
