19 Hang Me Out To Dry

(Gillan, West) z albumu Iana Gillana, 'Toolbox'

Zawsze podziwialem dzwiek jaki Leslie West wydobywa ze swojej gitary, na przyklad 'Mississippi Queen' grupy Mountain. Wiec zaprosilem go do siebie i popracowalismy troche. Owocem tej pracy jest wlasnie ten kawalek. Kolejny odcinek lirycznej introspekcji; ale czuje sie komfortowo z tym co napisalem chociaz nie pamietam dokladnie co mnie wtedy zainspirowalo (a nie byloby fair zgadywac).

Nagralismy to w Londynie zanim Leslie wylecial do domu. Z jakiegos powodu (technicznego, jesli dobrze pamietam) mielismy problem z solo. Wiec zastapilismy solo Leslie'ego solem Steve'a Morrisa i wszyscy byli zadowoleni z rezultatu jaki uzyskalismy. Wszyscy za wyjatkiem Leslie'ego, ktory wpadl w szal kiedy widzialem sie z nim nastepnym razem w Szwecji i niechcacy kiedy usciskalismy sie na powitanie spowodowal ze z mojego nosa poleciala krew tym samym krzycac na caly glos: 'co sie stalo z moim pie... solo?' To wciaz fajny kawalek moim zdaniem.

Hang me out to Dry

(Gillan/West)

I can't lose
Don't want to change my situation
I can't lose
Got this strange infatuation
When my seeds were sown
Then the cold wind blowing in my face
My life was just confusion
And when I roll my eyes they say
I've lost my sense of reason
And one day my woman said to me
You're almost human
Hang me out to dry

I can't lose
When I travel down my own road
I can't lose
You don't know the things that I know
And when the rain comes down
I see the lights in town gently calling
But I have to keep on walking
And when the dogs are howling
At the full moon
I start falling
And my head that's almost human
Reaches out and keeps me talking
Hang me out to dry

I can't lose
When it's ripped down to the bone
I can't lose
A better time I've never known
When my seeds were sown
Then the cold wind
Blowing in my face
My life was just confusion
And when I rolled my eyes
They said I lost my sense of reason
And one day my woman said to me
You're almost human
Hang me out to dry
