HE WAS A FRIEND OF MINE
da "Bootleg Series Vol. 1/3"



ERA UN MIO AMICO
traditional - arrangiamento di Bob Dylan

Lui era un mio amico
Lui era un mio amico
Ed ogni volta che ripenso a lui, oggi
Oh, Signore, non posso trattenermi dal piangere
Perchè lui era un mio amico

E' morto sulla strada
E' morto sulla strada
Non ha mai posseduto abbastanza denaro
Per potersi pagare una stanza o una pensione
Ed era un mio amico

Me ne sono andato via in silenzio piangendo
Me ne sono andato via in silenzio piangendo
Perchè non ho mai posseduto molto denaro
E non sono mai stato del tutto soddisfatto
Ed era un mio amico

Non ha mai fatto nulla di male
Non ha mai fatto nulla di male
Un migliaio di miglia lontano da casa
E non ha mai fatto del male a nessuno
Ed era un mio amico

Era un mio amico
Era un mio amico
Ed ogni volta che ripenso a lui, oggi
Oh, Signore, non posso trattenermi dal piangere
Perchè lui era un mio amico 


HE WAS A FRIEND OF MINE
traditional arranged by Bob Dylan
 

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time I think about him now
Lord I just can't keep from crying
'Cause he was a friend of mine

He died on the road
He died on the road
He never had enough money
To pay his room or board
And he was a friend of mine

I stole away and cried
I stole away and cried
'Cause I never had too much money
And I never been quite satisfied
And he was a friend of mine

He never done no wrong
He never done no wrong
A thousand miles from home
And he never harmed no one
And he was a friend of mine

He was a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
Every time i hear his name
Well I just can't keep from crying
'Cause he was a friend of mine
