MIDNIGHT OIL: "BEDLAM BRIDGE"


En su tono original. A mí la melodía vocal me queda mal tanto si voy por la aguda como por la grave, así que lo subo un semitono, o un tono, en La. Ah, ahí en el final le puse un Si menor de cierre, porque esta es de ésas canciones que se van apagando de a poco, no tiene final.

Vamos a sacar más de esta banda, que tiene grandes canciones, y especialmente de este disco "Blue sky mining", que creo que es el mejor de su prolífica obra. El cantante ¿seguirá siendo ministro de medio ambiente de Australia? Porque hasta la otra vez lo era, sí, por ese motivo fue que desarmó la banda hace ya unos cuantos años.



In this |G| city with no footpath, there's a building with no people
There is |A| crime and gun decisions
There's a |G| street of heat and hawkers, there's a house of hope and drifters
There's a |A| gang that shoots then listens
......Now there's a |D| place that knows no poverty, a town without pollution 

......There's a |F#| soul with good intentions 

There are |G| canyons full of movie stars, churches made of metal
There are |A| mountains made of muscle
We have |G| leaders who are anxious, we have captain not courageous
Captains |A| tumbling into madness
......But there's a |D| man who makes no enemies, a body never breathless 
......No am-|F#| bition ever hopeless

......|Bm| Up on bedlam bridge somebody is waiting
......|Bm| Up on bedlam bridge I'm shot to |A| heaven
......|Em| Oh... Up on bedlam bridge... |F#| waiting


In these |G| locked and shackled neighborhoods, bridge and tunnel diplomats
See the |A| golden ghetto's creeper
|G| Crazy flags from history, songs for the White House gangsters
Guns for |A| hellgate railway sleepers
......But there's a |D| man who makes no enemies, a body never breathless
......No am-|F#| bition ever hopeless  

............So |D| how stands the city on this |G| winter's night?
............The |D| city on the hill or so they |C| said
............The |D| snow is falling down around the |A| armoury
............And the |Bb| city's closing in around my he-|F|--|G|-ad 

......|Bm| Up on bedlam bridge somebody is waiting
......|Bm| Up on bedlam bridge I'm shot to |A| heaven
......|Em| Oh... Up on bedlam bridge... and |F#| waiting 

............|Bm| Drive... drive the engines harder |A|
............|Em| Dri---|C|---ve |D| 

......|Bm| Up on bedlam bridge somebody is waiting
......|Bm| Up on bedlam bridge I'm shot to |A| heaven
......|Em| Oh... Up on bedlam bridge... and |F#| waiting 

............|Bm| Drive...  |A|
............|Em| Dri---|C|---ve |D| --- |Bm|
