Ride on, Bon!

Es ist irgendwie kaum zu glauben, aber es ist nun wirklich schon 30 Jahre her, dass in einer ungemütlichen Februarnacht der geniale und einzigartige Sänger und Songwriter Bon Scott gestorben ist.

Der berühmte Frontmann von AC/DC bestimmte meine Jugend mit, meinen Musikgeschmack, auch meine Sicht auf die Dinge dieser Welt. Und er wird für mich in seinen Songs, seinen Texten immer lebendig bleiben.

Ride on, Bon!

Listen!


It's another lonely evening
And another lonely town

But I ain't too young to worry

And I ain't too old to cry

When a woman gets me down

Got another empty bottle

And another empty bed

Ain't too young to admit it

And I'm not too old to lie

I'm just another empty head

That's why I'm lonely

I'm so lonely

But I know what I'm gonna do -

I'm gonna ride on

Ride on

Ride on, standing on the edge of the road

Ride on, thumb in the air

Ride on, one of these days I'm gonna

Ride on, change my evil ways

Till then I'll just keep dragging on

Broke another promise

And I broke another heart

But I ain't too young to realize

That I ain't too old to try

Try to get back to the start

And it's another red light nightmare

Another red light street

And I ain't too old to hurry

Cause I ain't too old to die

But I sure am hard to beat

But I'm lonely

Lord I'm lonely

What am I gonna do -

Ride on

Ride on, got myself a one-way ticket

Ride on

Ride on, going the wrong way

Ride on, gonna change my evil ways

Ride on, one of these days

One of these days

Ride on

Ride on

I'm gonna ride on

Ride on, looking for a truck

Ride on

Ride on, keep on riding

Riding on and on and on ...
