“The Ballad of Sally Rose” by Emmylou Harris

…Сали Роуз е от племето на сиуксите, родена е в щата Дакота, който напуска, защото „има звезди в очите“ и музикален талант. Запознава се с певец, който я взема под крилото си. Женят се, но връзката им се влошава, когато нейната кариера тръгва нагоре, а неговата запада. Певецът е с тежък характер, често пие и Сали го напуска, но по-късно размисля и решава да се върне при него. Тя обаче разбира, че междувременно певецът е загинал в катастрофа…

Това е историята, която знаменитата кънтри певица EMMYLOU HARRIS, носител на 13 отличия “Grammy”, ни разказва в албума, или както тя го нарича „кънтри операта“, “THE BALLAD OF SALLY ROSE”, или „БАЛАДАТА ЗА САЛИ РОУЗ“.

Този албум е пробив за EMMYLOU в творчески план, тъй като е съавтор на по-голямата част от песните. „Имах тази идея от дълго време – споделя тя в интервю. – През 1982 г. Bruce Springsteen издаде своя албум „Nebraska“ и аз бях толкова вдъхновена от смелостта му и неговата емоция, че си казах: \"Наистина трябва да осъществя този проект.\" Дотогава HARRIS е автор на скромен брой песни от първия си албум, издаден през 1969 г., композира освен това една песен за втория си албум и още няколко в следващите осем албума.

Изследователите откриват поредица автобиографични елементи в съдържателната страна на този концептуален албум. Сали Роуз например е псевдонимът, използван от самата HARRIS, когато тръгва на турне със своята група The Hot Band, която събира за представянето на албума си от 1975 г. „Pieces of the Sky“ („Късчета небе“). Под името Сали Роуз тя дори се регистрира в хотелите.

Другият персонаж в албума също има реален прототип и това е GRAM PARSONS, легенда на стила country rock, един от неговите създатели, както и на \"Cosmic American Music\", хибрид от country, rhythm&blues, soul, folk и rock, участник в групите The Byrds и The Flying Burrito Brothers, който умира от свръхдоза наркотици през 1973 г. GRAM оказва силно влияние върху развитието на EMMYLOU HARRIS, след като я чува да пее и ? предлага да записва с него. Без да са любовници, двамата са пример за велика любов, която EMMYLOU осъзнава няколко седмици преди смъртта на PARSONS. Тя решава да не му се обяснява по телефона, защото иска да го направи лично, и тръгва към Калифорния, към хотела Joshua Tree Inn, където обаче той вече е намерил смъртта си на 26 г.

HARRIS говори за GRAM PARSONS с признанието, че я е развил като музикант и като човек: „Мисля, че стигате до определен момент от живота си, в който правите поглед назад през годините и това е нещо като тържество или благодарност за факта, че вие се пресичате с хора, които ви променят завинаги. Със сигурност GRAM направи това; аз прекрасно се разбирах с него, той ме научи на много неща и не можех да си представя, че GRAM няма да живее вечно. Животът продължава и се разгръща преди вас, но тези хора и събития, които ви променят, винаги ще са с вас. Това беше важно събитие, което определи траекторията на живота ми и повече от всичко повлия на работата ми.\"

Взаимоотношенията на GRAM PARSONS и EMMYLOU HARRIS внасят новаторски елемент в кънтри музиката от 70-те години с повече разнообразие, подчертано влияние на корените ? и уважение към класиката в жанра. След смъртта на PARSONS през 1973 г. EMMYLOU трябва да коригира голяма част от начина си на живот и правенето на музика. Работейки на вълната на своята трагедия, HARRIS избира да надене музикалната мантия на PARSONS и да продължи сама по съвместния им път. Нейната песен „Boulder to Birmingham“ от 1975 г. е за загубата на PARSONS като приятел и колега, а през 1999 г. продуцира албума „Return of the Grievous Angel“ в почит към GRAM PARSONS. Песните \"Luxury Liner“ и „She\" от GRAM PARSONS се превръщат в едни от най-ранните хитове на EMMYLOU HARRIS към албума ? от 1977 г. „Luxury Liner“. Така тя придобива репутацията да бъде сред най-силните певици на своето поколение, способна да внесе поразителна красота и дълбочина на смисъла във всичко, което е избрала да пее.

За албума “THE BALLAD OF SALLY ROSE” от 1985 г. EMMYLOU композира всички песни заедно с британския музикант PAUL KENNERLEY, автор на текстовете и продуцент, който пристига в Америка няколко години по-рано и е поканен да започне работа с HARRIS след съвместно турне. Така се получава актуализирана вариация на класическия countrypolitan, в която текстовете са вглъбени, ненатрапчиви и емоционално интелигентни, докато мелодиите се редуват с грациозна увереност.

Интересно е да се отбележи участието в техния проект на внушителен състав музиканти, включително типичната за countrypolitan струнна секция и звездите DOLLY PARTON и LINDA RONSTADT от знаменитото им трио с EMMYLOU, както и GAIL DAVIES във вокалните партии на няколко от песните.

Албума “THE BALLAD OF SALLY ROSE”, или „БАЛАДАТА ЗА САЛИ РОУЗ“, ще чуем в предаването “Картини от една изложба®” на програма “Хоризонт” на БНР в събота, 8 май, след новините от 21.00 ч. по предложение и с любезното съдействие на кънтри, блуграс и суинг певицата Лили Друмева - О’Рейли.

LYRICS:

The Ballad of Sally Rose

[Verse 1]
Her mama picked him up in south Minnesota
He promised her the world but they never got that far
For he was last seen in that 59 DeSoto
When Sally was born in the Black Hills of Dakota
She was washed in the blood of the dying Sioux nation
Raised with a proud but a wandering heart
And she knew that her roots were in the old reservation
But she had stars in her eyes and greater expectations

[Chorus]
No rings on her fingers, no bells on her toes
With bugs on her headlights and runs in her hose
Through the valley of the shadow of Roosevelt s nose
Adios South Dakota, adios Sally Rose

[Verse 2]
They ve got a national monument carved out of stone
On the side of a mountain where her forefathers roamed
Playing cowboys and Indians right under the nose
Of Theodore Roosevelt and the sweet Sally Rose
So she left Rapid City in the blue moonlight hour
With her eye on the highway and her foot on the floor
And turning the dial, she was pulled by the power
Of the word coming out of the broadcasting tower

[Chorus]
No rings on her fingers, no bells on her toes
With bugs on her headlights and runs in her hose
Through the valley of the shadow of Roosevelt s nose
Adios South Dakota, adios Sally Rose


Rhythm Guitar

[Verse 1]
Well, she played around town till she opened the show
For a high rolling singer up from Tupelo
He saw her in the lights and he gave her a hand
Next thing Sally knew she was one of the band

[Chorus]
She said don t give me nothing that I can t use
I got the rhythm and I don t need the blues
I don t want to ride no shooting star
Just want to play on the rhythm guitar

[Verse 2]
She was the sweetest thing that he ever had seen
And he s had quite a few of them backstage queens
She was the prettiest thing that he ever had heard
Playing rhythm guitar and singing the third

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Well, Sally keeps her feet planted on the ground
She don t lose her head when the sun goes down
Everybody s out looking for romance
Sally just wants to get the people to dance

[Chorus][x2]


I Think I Love Him

[Verse]
I think I love him
I think I knew the first time he called my name
And said You are my sunshine
I think I love him
I think I knew the hour he held me close
And said you are my flower


Heart to Heart

[Verse 1]
Heart to heart, we ll hold together
Hand in hand, we ll find a way
Oh, the storms of life may blind us
But with the loving vows that bind us
Heart to heart, hand in hand, we ll stay

[Chorus]
Side by side forever and always
Day by day, til our lives are done
This sweet love is ours to treasure
Far beyond all time and measure
Side by side, day by day as one

[Bridge]
The years cannot take what s between you and me
We ll stand here together for the whole world to see

[Verse 2]
Heart to heart, there ll be no other
Hand in hand for our love is true
Oh, the words that we have spoken
Will be a promise never broken
Heart to heart, hand in hand, we ll do


Woman Walk the Line

[Verse 1]
Don t bother sitting at my table
Just because I m on my own
Yes, I m a woman and I m lonely
But that don t mean I can t be strong
Once again he s not beside me
And tonight he won t be coming home
So I just need a place to miss my baby
When he goes out to do me wrong

[Chorus]
Tonight I want to do some drinking
I came to listen to the band
Yes, I m as good as what you re thinking
But I don t want hold your hand
And I know I m looking lonely
But there s nothing here I want to find
It s just the way of a woman
When she goes out to walk the line

[Verse 2]
Every night s a little longer
Than the one that came before
But when I hear them sing a sad song
I know just what I m crying for
I don t want to stay home waiting
Don t have to wonder where he s been
He ll be someone else s baby
Before he s in my arms again

[Chorus]
Tonight I want to do some drinking
I came to listen to the band
Yes, I m as good as what you re thinking
But I don t want hold your hand
And I know I m looking lonely
But there s nothing here I want to find
It s just the way of a woman
When she goes out to walk the line


Bad News

[Verse 1]
Bad news, black day
There s been a wreck on the highway
Driving fast in distress
Hit a curve and died in the darkness

[Chorus]
He ll never know how much I lose
Bad news

[Verse 2]
Bad news, sirens whine
He rode the devil down the white line
Johnny Walker by his side
Always out there looking for the last ride

[Chorus]
He ll never know how much I lose
Bad news


Timberline

[Verse 1]
Oh, the stars, they did shine
The night you swore that you d be mine
And you promised always to be true and to be kind
On that Shenandoah hill where our love bloomed until
I went away and left those promises behind

[Chorus]
But when I rise from the timberline and call your name
Will you remember mine?
And the sweetest kiss will be the tie that binds
Like the wild, wild rose and the columbine

[Verse 2]
To that place, I will go where the wildwood flowers grow
With a ribbon in my hair and a gown of calico
To those Shenandoah hills, I ll go back, I swear I will
To the sweetest kiss my lips will ever know

[Chorus]
But when I rise from the timberline and call your name
Will you remember mine?
And the sweetest kiss will be the tie that binds
Like the wild, wild rose and the columbine

But when I rise from the timberline and call your name
Will you remember mine?
And the sweetest kiss will be the tie that binds
Like the wild, wild rose and the columbine

But when I rise from the timberline and call your name
Will you remember mine?
And the sweetest kiss will be the tie that binds
Like the wild, wild rose and the columbine


Long Tall Sally Rose

[Verse 1]
Well, tonight I m gonna wear my dancing shoes
Because I heard the word and I heard the news
There s a gal in town, she s packing them in
If you ve seen her once, you ll see her again

[Chorus]
She s got a red hot dynamite band
They re burning down another one night stand
Headlining double shows
Everybody go see Sally Rose

[Verse 2]
She sure knows how to rock the crowd
Rocks them slow, rocks them loud
So you better move fast because tickets are tight
If you want to see Sally Rose pick it tonight

[Chorus]
She s got a red hot dynamite band
They re burning down another one night stand
Headlining double shows
Everybody go see Sally Rose


White Line

[Verse 1]
It seems like I was there from the start
A witness to your wild and reckless heart
You showed me the way but now you re gone
Quicker than the trigger of an outlaw s gun
Living fast and dying young
A victim of this road you left me on

[Chorus]
White line took my baby
Led him down that dark highway
Headlight blind, driving crazy
If my wheels keep turning
Gonna roll that white line away

[Verse 2]
We worked the road as hard as we could drive her
But now I am the only survivor
From night to night at every place I play in
The sweetness of your song remains
I ll be the keeper of the flame
Until every soul hears what your heart was saying

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
All the nights you spent alone
All the love I d never shown
All the words I could not say
Till that white line took you away
White line took you away

[Verse 3]
I ll follow this white line down where it s winding
Because somewhere up ahead your light s still shining
The sound of the silver strings will guide me
I ve stood and watched the bridges burn
I m past the point of no return
Oh, how I wish that you were here beside me

[Chorus][x2]

[Outro]
White line took my baby
Led him down


Diamond in My Crown

As each long day rolls by and falls behind me
In the lonely night, there s a peacefulness I ve found
Though I m weary even then when I rise to start again
There ll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown

I have wasted all that life has laid before me
I have watched as all the green fields turn to brown
But I shall not disavow all these ties that bind me now
There ll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown

Shining down someday I know brighter than all the streets of gold
When the burdens that I carry I will lay down
And the sorrows I have known, I ll see them all be overthrown
There ll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown

With the passing of the years, I will grow stronger
Just as sure as this old world keeps spinning round
Then the closer I will be to my sweetest victory
There ll be a diamond, a diamond in my crown


The Sweetheart of the Rodeo

[Verse 1]
I hear the sound of sorrow in the wind
Blowing down from every mile I ve ever been
Calling me out on some road that just won t end
Where the sweetheart rides the rodeo again
A thousand nights, a thousand towns, I took the bows
There is no compensation for me now
Out along the highway where the west was won
No matter how fast I ride or far I run

[Chorus]
Waiting for the sweetheart of the rodeo
They re coming down from Tonopah to Tupelo
She ll come to town to ride the radio
Like she s sliding down the walls of Jericho
There goes the sweetheart of the rodeo

[Verse 2]
I stepped into the light you left behind
I stood there where all the world could see me shine
Oh, I was on my way to you to make you mine
But I took the longest road that I could find

[Chorus]


K-S-O-S

[Verse]
Come gather round me, boys, and lend an ear
I ve got some things I think you all should hear
It s time to shift into another gear
I ve reached my final destination
Bought a radio station
And she s fifty thousand watts pure and clear

[Chorus]
KSOS help is on the way
Twenty-four hours of every day
A voice in the wilderness
And we re here to stay, KSOS


Sweet Chariot

[Verse 1]
Oh, my darling
I have searched the desert and the sky
Just to find you
And take the mourning from my eyes
When I lost you
I suffered and you were sanctified
We are all born to live
We are all bound to die

[Chorus]
Swing down sweet chariot
The flesh will fall and the bones will rot
But from my sorrow you ll carry me not
My heart is bound, my soul is chained to the rock
Rock of ages cleft for me
I swung down my hammer out in Joshua Tree
It rang on the mountain and rolled to the sea
And it will ring from the rock

[Verse 2]
Oh, my children
Sorrow shall come to each of us
All our trials
Will soon lay buried in the dust
Long forgotten
But quick as silver turns to rust
Love is found
When the heart is lost

[Chorus][x2]

[Outro]
Swing down sweet chariot
The flesh will fall and the bones will rot
But from my sorrow you ll carry me not
