Música: Long Haired Country Boy - Daniels Charlie

A pesar de las controvertidas y poco aconsejables opiniones de este cantante, esta canción tiene un aire libertario que me encanta. No sé mucho de country, pero me gusta como suena.


People say I'm no-good,
And crazy as a loon.
I get stoned in the morning,
I get drunk in the afternoon.
Kinda like my old blue tick hound,
I like to lay around in the shade,
An', I ain't got no money,
But I damn sure got it made.

'Cos I ain't askin' nobody for nothin',
If I can't get it on my own.
If you don't like the way I'm livin',
You just leave this long-haired country boy alone.

Preacher man talkin' on the TV,
He's a-puttin' down the rock 'n' roll.
He wants me to send a donation,'Cos he's worried about my soul.
He said: "Jesus walked on the water,"And I know that is true,
But sometimes I think that preacher man,
Would like to do a little walkin', too.

But I ain't askin' nobody for nothin',
If I can't get it on my own.
You don't like the way I'm livin',
You just leave this long-haired country boy alone.

A poor girl wants to marry, And a rich girl wants to flirt.
A rich man goes to college,And a poor man goes to work.
A drunkard wants another drink of wine,And a politician wants a vote.
I don't want much of nothin' at all,But I will take another toke.

'Cos I ain't askin' nobody for nothin',If I can't get it on my own.
If you don't like the way I'm livin',
You just leave this long-haired country boy alone.

Por fin pones una canción decente. Para mí no hay música que evoque más el espíritu de libertad que el country y sus variedades.

Quizá sea por ello que casi todo el mundo relacione esta música con los viajes por carretera (espacios abiertos, libertad...). Prueba a escuchar Take it easy de los Eagles, dan ganas de coger el coche.

Charlie Daniels es la leche. Y es right wing total.
