Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)

 (ユーチューブ)⇒ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dt6-ZtOL_gY

 ★ 女性のカントリー・デュオ、The Judds のこの歌を聴きながら、おれたち、この日本の爺様たちに、孫に伝えるべき、古き良き何があるのだろうと思った。

 核の権力の暴走を、政治の暴走を止めうち、わたしらには子に孫に語るべきものは何も――ない!

 The Judds の出身地は、ケンタッキーのアッシュヴィル(灰の町)だそうだ。

   ああ、わたしらは子孫に、死の灰にまみれた日本を遺すことになってしまった! 

 だから、この歌は切ない! 切なすぎる!

 

 

 〔歌詞〕

Grandpa
Tell me 'bout the good old days.
Sometimes it feels like
This world's gone crazy.
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday,
Where the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy.

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
Stand beside each other come what may
was a promise really something people kept,
Not just something they would say
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Whoa oh Grandpa,
Tell me 'bout the good old days.

[musical interlude]

Grandpa
Everything is changing fast.
We call it progress,
But I just don't know.
And Grandpa, let's wonder back into the past,
And paint me a picture of long ago.

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
Stand beside each other come what may
Was a promise really something people kept,
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Whoa oh Grandpa,
Tell me 'bout the good old days.

Whoa oh Grandpa,
Tell me 'bout the good ole days.

[Musical interlude]
[Humming]
