Jefferson Airplane – Wooden Ships

Per la sua Classifica dei Blogger Zu ha scelto di ascoltare Allison dei Pixies. Di mio vorrei aggiungere l’ascolto di Wooden Ships dei Jefferson Airplane, che contiene un paio di passaggi che colpiscono profondamente il mio immaginario di velista appassionato.

Una piccola curiosità: Wooden Ships, Paul Kantner la co-scrisse con David Crosby e Stephen Stills, fu incisa lo stesso anno anche da Crosby, Stills and Nash nel loro album d’esordio, data la co-produzione entrambe le versioni sono considerate originali.

Io preferisco quella dei Jefferson Airplane.

If you smile at me you know
I will understand
Cause that is something everybody everywhere does
In the same language

I can see by your coat my friend that you’re from the other side
There’s just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please who won
You must try some of my purple berries

I been eating them for six or seven weeks now
Haven’t got sick once
Probably keep us both alive
Wooden ships on the water very free and easy

Easy you know the way it’s supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Very free and easy
Sail away where the mornin sun goes high
Sail away where the wind blows sweet and young birds fly

Take a sister THEN by her hand
Lead her far from this barren land
Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cry and

Stare as all you human feelings die
We are leaving
You don’t need us
Go and take a sister by her hand

Lead her far from this foreign land
Somewhere where we might laugh again
We are leaving
You don’t need us

Sailing ships on the water very free and easy
Easy you know the way it’s supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Very free

And gone
