《On the Border》:献给“水门事件”

这是“老鹰”乐队第一首节奏蓝调加放克曲风的作品,在当时甚至就连作为鼓手的Don Henley自己,都对乐队能玩出这样的作品而感到很惊异。而且这也是Glenn Frey第一次在一首作品里,如此纯粹的运用节奏蓝调演奏技术。

而这首歌曲的歌词灵感,则来自于当年引起世界轰动的“水门事件”。此事件是当权的政府对位于水门大厦的民主党竞选总部进行窃听的一段历史,在位的总统尼克森,虽然事前并不知道此事,但在知晓此事后却竭力掩盖实情,阻碍司法调查,还在大众面前公开撒谎,东窗事发后,尼克森也因此成为美国历史上第一位被迫辞职的总统。整个世界也彻底瓦解了美国民众对政府的信赖和依赖,从而引发公权力和个人隐私之间尺度的思考。而《On the Border》正是“老鹰”的思考成果。

歌词:

cruising down the center of a two way street

wonder ring who is really in the driver's seat

minding my bus'ness along comes big brother

says, son, you better get on one side or the other.

i'm out on the border, i'm walking the line

don't you tell me about your law and order

i'm try'ng to change this water to wine.

after a hard day, i'm safe at home

fooling with my baby on the telephone

out of nowhere somebody cuts in and

says, hmm, you in some trouble boy

we know where you're been.

i'm out on the border

i thought this was a private line

don't you tell me 'bout your law and order

i'm try'ng to change this water to wine

never mind your name,

just give us your number, mm

never mind your face,

just show us your card, mm

and we wanna know whose wing are you under

you better step to the right or we can make it hard

i'm stuck on the border

all i wanted was some peace of mind

don't you tell me 'bout your law and order

i'm try'ng to change this water to wine

on the border

on the border

leave me be , i'm just walking this line

on the border

on the border

all i wanted was some peace of mind, peace of mind

i'm out on the border

on the border

can't you see i'm tryin to change this water to wine

i'm out on the border

on the border

don't you tell me about your law and order

i'm out on the border

sick and tired of all your law and order

on the border

sick and tired of it

i'm out on the border

on the border
