EL CANTANTE Y POETA BOB DYLAN, PREMIO NOBEL DE LITERATURA 2016

Festejamos en esta entrada la concesión del premio Nobel de Literatura 2016 al cantante estadounidense Bob Dylan, una figura del rock, y que, en palabras de la academia sueca, ha recibido el galardón en reconocimiento a una obra que ha sabido forjar “una nueva expresión poética dentro de la gran tradición americana de la canción”.

Canciones con tanto peso como Blowin’ in the wind, Masters of War, The Times They Are a Changing, A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall, Mr Tambourine Man o Chimes of Freedom, e himnos que han cruzado generaciones, como Like a Rolling Stone. 

Un premio no exento de polémica, como bien atestiguan las palabras de Sánchez Dragó en su columna del diario El Mundo.

Con todo, el premio, para bien o para mal, ha sido fallado.

Como homenaje, presentamos la letra original de la canción Like a Rolling Stone (fuente: http://www.letraseningles.es).

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime
In your prime, didn’t you?
People’d call, say
“Beware doll, you’re bound to fall”
You thought they were all kidding you
You used to laugh about everybody
That was hanging out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal

How does it feel?
How does it feel to be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone

You’ve gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out
You’re going to have to get used to it
You said you’d never compromise
With the mystery tramp but now you realize
He’s not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And ask him do you want to make a deal?

How does it feel?
How does it feel to be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone

You never turned around to see the frowns
On the jugglers and the clowns
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain’t no good
You shouldn’t let other people
Get your kicks for you
You used to ride on the chrome horse
With your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain’t it hard when you discover that
He really wasn’t where it’s at
After he took from you everything he could steal?

How does it feel?
How does it feel to be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They’re drinking, thinking that they got it made
Exchanging all kinds of precious gifts and things
But you’d better lift your diamond ring
You’d better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can’t refuse
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You’re invisible now
You got no secrets to conceal

How does it feel?
How does it feel to be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone
