Brownsville Girl
(with Sam Shepard)


Well, there was this movie I seen one time
About a man riding ’cross the desert and it starred Gregory Peck
He was shot down by a hungry kid trying to make a name for himself
The townspeople wanted to crush that kid down and string him up by the neck

Well, the marshal, now he beat that kid to a bloody pulp
As the dying gunfighter lay in the sun and gasped for his last breath
“Turn him loose, let him go, let him say he outdrew me fair and square
I want him to feel what it’s like to every moment face his death”

Well, I keep seeing this stuff and it just comes a-rolling in
And you know it blows right through me like a ball and chain
You know I can’t believe we’ve lived so long and are still so far apart
The memory of you keeps callin’ after me like a rollin’ train

I can still see the day that you came to me on the painted desert
In your busted down Ford and your platform heels
I could never figure out why you chose that particular place to meet
Ah, but you were right. It was perfect as I got in behind the wheel

Well, we drove that car all night into San Anton’
And we slept near the Alamo, your skin was so tender and soft
Way down in Mexico you went out to find a doctor and you never came back
I would have gone on after you but I didn’t feel like letting my head get blown off

Well, we’re drivin’ this car and the sun is comin’ up over the Rockies
Now I know she ain’t you but she’s here and she’s got that dark rhythm in her soul
But I’m too over the edge and I ain’t in the mood anymore to remember the times when I was your only man
And she don’t want to remind me. She knows this car would go out of control

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl, show me all around the world
Brownsville girl, you’re my honey love

Well, we crossed the panhandle and then we headed towards Amarillo
We pulled up where Henry Porter used to live. He owned a wreckin’ lot outside of town about a mile
Ruby was in the backyard hanging clothes, she had her red hair tied back.
She saw us come rolling up in a trail of dust
She said, “Henry ain’t here but you can come on in, he’ll be back in a little while”

Then she told us how times were tough and about how she was thinkin’ of bummin’ a ride back to from where she started
But ya know, she changed the subject every time money came up
She said, “Welcome to the land of the living dead.”
You could tell she was so broken hearted
She said, “Even the swap meets around here are getting pretty corrupt”

“How far are y’all going?” Ruby asked us with a sigh
“We’re going all the way ’til the wheels fall off and burn
’Til the sun peels the paint and the seat covers fade and the water moccasin dies”
Ruby just smiled and said, “Ah, you know some babies never learn”

Something about that movie though, well I just can’t get it out of my head
But I can’t remember why I was in it or what part I was supposed to play
All I remember about it was Gregory Peck and the way people moved
And a lot of them seemed to be lookin’ my way

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl, show me all around the world
Brownsville girl, you’re my honey love

Well, they were looking for somebody with a pompadour
I was crossin’ the street when shots rang out
I didn’t know whether to duck or to run, so I ran
“We got him cornered in the churchyard,” I heard somebody shout

Well, you saw my picture in the Corpus Christi Tribune. Underneath it, it said, “A man with no alibi”
You went out on a limb to testify for me, you said I was with you
Then when I saw you break down in front of the judge and cry real tears
It was the best acting I saw anybody do

Now I’ve always been the kind of person that doesn’t like to trespass but sometimes you just find yourself over the line
Oh if there’s an original thought out there, I could use it right now
You know, I feel pretty good, but that ain’t sayin’ much.
I could feel a whole lot better
If you were just here by my side to show me how

Well, I’m standin’ in line in the rain to see a movie starring Gregory Peck
Yeah, but you know it’s not the one that I had in mind
He’s got a new one out now, I don’t even know what it’s about
But I’ll see him in anything so I’ll stand in line

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl, show me all around the world
Brownsville girl, you’re my honey love

You know, it’s funny how things never turn out the way you had ’em planned
The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter is that his name wasn’t Henry Porter
And you know there was somethin’ about you baby that I liked that was always too good for this world
Just like you always said there was somethin’ about me you liked that I left behind in the French Quarter

Strange how people who suffer together have stronger connections than people who are most content
I don’t have any regrets, they can talk about me plenty when I’m gone
You always said people don’t do what they believe in, they just do what’s most convenient, then they repent
And I always said, “Hang on to me, baby, and let’s hope that the roof stays on”

There was a movie I seen one time, I think I sat through it twice
I don’t remember who I was or where I was bound
All I remember about it was it starred Gregory Peck, he wore a gun and he was shot in the back
Seems like a long time ago, long before the stars were torn down

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl, show me all around the world
Brownsville girl, you’re my honey love



布朗斯维尔姑娘

[美]鲍勃·迪伦 萨姆·谢泼德
西川 译


有这么个电影我曾经看过
讲一个男人骑马过沙漠,主演是格里高利·派克
一个饥饿的男孩为了出名把他一枪撂倒
镇上的人们想要吊死那男孩并把他撕烂

嗯,警察局长把那孩子打得血里呼啦
这枪手将死,喘着最后一口气,瘫在阳光下
“给他松绑放他走,让他去说他堂堂正正拔枪比我快
我要叫他尝尝这滋味:面对死亡,每时每刻”

嗯,这事儿我一直在面对,它朝我滚来涌来
你看它像锁链一样劈头盖脸
你看我不能相信我们已活了如此之久却依然相距如此遥远
对你的记忆像一列火车滚滚而来追踪着我

还记得那天在多彩沙漠你来会我
开着你的破福特,穿着你的厚底儿高跟鞋
我永远弄不懂你为啥偏选那个地方来见面
啊,但你是对的,太棒了当我坐到方向盘前

嗯,我们整夜开车去了圣安东
我们睡在阿拉莫附近,你的皮肤好细柔
一路开到墨西哥你去找医生再没回来
我本该去找你但我不想让我的脑袋被打开花

嗯,我们开着这辆车,太阳升上落基山脉
我现在知道她不是你但她在这,她灵魂中有黑暗的节奏
但我也是身在悬崖边上,再无心思回忆我是你唯一男人的时候
她也不想提醒我。她知道这辆车终将报废

布朗斯维尔姑娘布朗斯维尔卷发
皓齿如珍珠闪烁如高悬的明月一轮
布朗斯维尔姑娘,带我走过全世界
布朗斯维尔姑娘,你是我甜蜜的爱人

嗯,我们穿过锅把区,然后一头扎向阿马里洛
我们停在亨利·波特住过的地方。城外一英里他有间破屋
露比在后院晾衣裳,红头发束在脑后。她见我们一路烟尘开过来
她说:“亨利不在但你们进来吧,他过一小会就回来”

然后她说到岁月的艰辛,说到她想搭车回到她出来的地方
但你知道,每次一涉及钱她就换过话题
她说:“欢迎来到活死人的地方。”你会感到她已心碎
她说:“即使这里的旧货交易会也变得越来越烂”

“你们一路走要走多远?”露比对我们叹道
“我们一直走直到轮子跑掉并燃烧
直到车漆被太阳剥落,车座套磨烂,直到水蝮蛇死掉”
露比笑言:“啊,看呐,有些孩子就是不长进”

这是那电影中的一些事,嗯我就是没办法摆脱
但我忘了为啥我会在电影里,或我演的该是哪一个
只记得这是格里高利·派克的片子,和人们的举手投足
他们中很多人好像都是我这副样子

布朗斯维尔姑娘布朗斯维尔卷发
皓齿如珍珠闪烁如高悬的明月一轮
布朗斯维尔姑娘,带我走过全世界
布朗斯维尔姑娘,你是我甜蜜的爱人

嗯,他们在找那个梳着蓬帕杜发型的人
我穿过大街时枪声大作
我不知我是该藏还是该跑,所以我拔腿就跑
“我们在教堂院子里堵住了他。”我听见有人在喊叫

嗯,你看见我的照片刊载于《科珀斯克里斯蒂论坛报》。下注“无不在场证明者”
你冒险为我作证,说我和你在一起
我看到你在法官面前崩溃,流下真正的眼泪
这是我见过的最好的表演

看呐我这人从不爱冒犯别人,但有时你会发现你已越界
噢如果那儿有个想法挺独特,我就会立即使用它
你看,我觉得挺好,但我不想说太多。如果你就在我身旁告诉我该如何做
我会整个感觉好得多

嗯,我在雨中排队看格里高利·派克的电影
是呀,但你知道这不是我想看的那一部
他又拍了新片,我都不知它讲的啥
但我就是想看他,所以会排队,啥电影都行

布朗斯维尔姑娘布朗斯维尔卷发
皓齿如珍珠闪烁如高悬的明月一轮
布朗斯维尔姑娘,带我走过全世界
布朗斯维尔姑娘,你是我甜蜜的爱人

你看,事情的结果从不如你所愿,有趣
这个亨利·波特,我们唯一确知的是这并非他的姓名
你看宝,我喜欢你身上的某些东西,对这个世界来说总是太精彩
就像你总说喜欢我身上的某些东西,被我抛在法国区

奇怪苦在一块儿的人们的关系何以比那些满足者之间的关系更密切
我没啥可后悔,我走后他们可对我大谈而特谈
你总说人们的所为并非其所信,他们只做最方便的事,然后懊悔
而我总说:“跟我混,宝,但愿屋顶安然无恙”

我看过一部电影,我想是看过两遍
我忘了我曾经是谁或我曾在哪里
只记得它由格里高利·派克主演,他枪不离身,却被人从背后一枪打来
那好像是很久以前,在星星被烧掉之前很久

布朗斯维尔姑娘布朗斯维尔卷发
皓齿如珍珠闪烁如高悬的明月一轮
布朗斯维尔姑娘,带我走过全世界
布朗斯维尔姑娘,你是我甜蜜的爱人
