Hard Times Come Again No More

 ◎ ユーチューブ ⇒ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPu545MJjIU

 ★ フォスターのこの歌を、ナンシ・グリフィス(Nanci Griffith )さんの歌唱で!

 もう、この国を、これ以上、ズタズタにしないでくれ!

 ◎ 歌詞

 
1.
Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears;
Oh! Hard times come again no more.
Chorus:
'Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard Times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh! Hard times come again no more.

2.
While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay,
There are frail forms fainting at the door;
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
Oh! Hard times come again no more.
Chorus

3.
There's a pale drooping maiden who toils her life away,
With a worn heart whose better days are o'er:
Though her voice would be merry, 'tis sighing all the day,
Oh! Hard times come again no more.
Chorus

4.
'Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave,
'Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
'Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
Oh! Hard times come again no more.
Chorus

Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye

 

  Diane Marino さんのこの歌、mp3で手に入れて、なんども聞いている。

 (ユーチューブ)⇒ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHZyXjPGmjI

 彼女、ジャズピアノの弾き語りをしている。カルテットを率いて。

 ♪ 100万年、愛しているよ、と言ってちょうだい!

   それでだめなら、さよなら、言ってもいいわよ。

  ――この強くて、やさしくて、彼女の歌いぶりがいい。

 歌詞

 Hold me each evening by your side

 Tell me you'll love me for a million years

 If it don't work out if it don't work out

 Then you can tell me goodbye

 Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss

 Soften my dreams with your sighs

 Tell me you'll love me for a million years

 If it don't work out if it don't work out

 Then you can tell me goodbye

 If you must go oh no I won't grieve

 If you wait a lifetime before you leave

 But if you must go I won't tell you no

 Just so that we can say we tried

 Tell me you'll love me for a million years

 If it don't work out if it don't work out

 Then you can tell me goodbye
