Tomorrow Is
A Long Time


Tomorrow Is A Long Time (1962) – Bob Dylan

If tomorrow wasn’t such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all
Yes and only if my own true love was waitin’
And if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin’

Tomorrow Is A Long Time (1962) – Bob Dylan

今天為大家介紹的歌曲是Bob Dylan 在1971年推出個人版本的Tomorrow Is A Long Time。歌曲長達3分鐘,類型屬於民謠(Folk),有多個翻唱版本。較知名的版本,由Elvis Presley 貓王在較早期唱出。

在1966年,Bob Dylan為Elvis Presley貓王作曲填詞,所以貓王是比較早唱出Tomorrow Is A Long Time這首歌曲。由於貓王曾經演唱Bob Dylan的作品,Bob非常珍惜貓王這個版本。

雖然歌曲在1971年才推出市面,但其實Bob Dylan曾經在1962年錄製個人Demo版本,被收錄於《The Bootleg Series Vol. 9: The Witmark Demos: 1962–1964》。

這首歌曲較早期的版本,應該是由Joan Baez在1963年唱出。Joan Baez應該是第一位較多唱Bob Dylan作品的歌手。另外,她在當時與Bob Dylan是有曖昧的關係,這亦解釋了為何她可以較早唱出Bob Dylan作品的歌手。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由Bob Dylan一手包辨

If today was not a crooked highway
If tonight was not a crooked trail
If tomorrow wasn’t such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all
Yes and only if my own true love was waitin’
And if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin’

Yes, only if she was lyin’ by me
Then I’d lie in my bed once again

I can’t see my reflection in the waters
I can’t speak the sounds that show no pain
I can’t hear the echo of my footsteps
Or remember the sound of my own name
Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin’
And if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin’
Yes and only if she was lyin’ by me
Then I’d lie in my bed once again

There’s beauty in the silver, singin’ river
There’s beauty in the sunrise in the sky
But none of these and nothing else can touch the beauty
That I remember in my true love’s eyes
Yes and only if my own true love was waitin’
I could hear her heart a softly poundin’
Yes and only if she was lyin’ by me
Then I’d lie in my bed once again
