聴き比べ  ザ・バンドの『同じことさ(It Makes No Difference)』

今日の「聴き比べ」はザ・バンド(The Band)『同じことさ(It Makes No Difference)』です。


この曲はザ・バンドの1975年のアルバム南十字星(Northern Lights – Southern Cross)』に収録された、ロビー・ロバートソン(Robbie Robertson)の曲です。ヴォーカルはリック・ダンコ(Rick Danko)です。


その傑作アルバムの中の名曲がこの『同じことさ(It Makes No Difference)』です。


It Makes No Difference

By  Robbie Robertson


It makes no difference where I turn

I can't get over you and the flame still burns

It makes no difference, night or day

The shadow never seems to fade away


And the sun don't shine anymore

And the rains fall down on my door


Now there's no love

As true as the love

That dies untold

But the clouds never hung so low before


It makes no difference how far I go

Like a scar, the hurt will always show

And it makes no difference who I meet

They're just a face in the crowd on a dead-end street


And the sun don't shine anymore

And the rains fall down on my door


These old love letters

Well, I just can't keep

Just like the gambler says:

"Read 'em and weep"

And the dawn don't rescue me no more

Primis Player Placeholder


Without your love, I'm nothing at all

Like an empty hall, it's a lonely fall

Since you've gone it's a losing battle

Stampeding cattle, they rattle the walls


And the sun don't shine anymore

And the rains fall down on my door


Well, I love you so much

That it's all that I can do

Just to keep myself from telling you

That I never felt so alone before
