Bob Dylan goes deep on Joan Baez, the music, their friendship and the effect she had on his career.

作为诺贝尔文学奖获得者,历史记住了Bob Dylan。1975年,Joan Baez 为了纪念60年代与 Bob Dylan 的一段情,写下了歌曲“Diamonds and Rust",它记录了10年前他们曾经经历过的点点滴滴,一段荡气回肠的爱情。后来,这首歌成为了 Joan 最负盛名的作品。

Well, I'll be damned 
Here comes your ghost again 
But that's not unusual 
It's just that the moon is full 
And you happened to call 
And here I sit 
Hand on the telephone 
Hearing a voice I'd known 
A couple of light years ago 
Heading straight for a fall As I remember your eyes 
Were bluer than robin's eggs 
My poetry was lousy you said 
Where are you calling from? 
A booth in the midwest 
Ten years ago 
I bought you some cufflinks 
You brought me something 
We both know what memories can bring 
They bring diamonds and rust Well, you burst on the scene 
Already a legend 
The unwashed phenomenon 
The original vagabond 
You strayed into my arms 
And there you stayed 
Temporarily lost at sea 
The Madonna was yours for free 
Yes, the girl on the half-shell 
Could keep you unharmed Now I see you standing 
With brown leaves falling all around 
And snow in your hair 
Now you're smiling out the window 
Of that crummy hotel 
Over Washington Square 
Our breath comes out white clouds 
Mingles and hangs in the air 
Speaking strictly for me 
We both could have died then and there Now you're telling me 
You're not nostalgic 
Then give me another word for it 
You who are so good with words 
And at keeping things vague 
'Cause I need some of that vagueness now 
It's all come back too clearly 
Yes, I loved you dearly 
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust 
I've already paid



The Madonna was yours for free ...(注:Joan 有Madonna 之昵称)
