聴き比べ  デレク&ザ・ドミノス(Derek & The Dominos)の『Bell Bottom Blues』

今日の「聴き比べ」はデレク&ザ・ドミノス(Derek & The Dominos)『Bell Bottom Blues』です。

 

この曲は1971年のアルバム『いとしのレイラ(Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs)』に収録された曲です。

エリック・クラプトン(Eric Clapton)ジョージ・ハリソン(George Harrison)の妻であるパティ・ボイド(Pattie Boyd)に恋をして、その苦しみを歌った曲です。

その辺りのことは、クラプトンのドキュメンタリー映画で詳しく描かれました。

このアルバムはパティ・ボイドのために作られたようなものでした。

 

Bell Bottom Blues

By Eric Patrick Clapton / Bobby Whitlock

 

Bell bottom blues, you made me cry

I don't want to lose this feeling

And if I could choose a place to die

It would be in your arms

 

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?

Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?

I'd gladly do it because

I don't want to fade away

Give me one more day, please

I don't want to fade away

In your heart I want to stay

 

It's all wrong, but it's all right

The way that you treat me baby

Once I was strong but I lost the fight

You won't find a better loser

 

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?

Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?

I'd gladly do it because

I don't want to fade away

Give me one more day, please

I don't want to fade away

In your heart I want to stay

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?

Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?

I'd gladly do it cause

I don't want to fade away

Give me one more day, please

I don't want to fade away

In your heart I want to stay

 

Bell bottom blues, don't say goodbye

We're surely gonna meet again

And if we do, don't you be surprised

If you find me with another lover

 

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?

Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?

I'd gladly do it cause

I don't want to fade away

Give me one more day, please

I don't want to fade away

In your heart I want to stay

 

I don't want to fade away

Give me one more day please

I don't want to fade away

In your heart I want to stay
