« Bron-Y-Aur Stomp », de Led Zeppelin / Robert Plant (1970)

Robert Plant de Led Zeppelin avec son chien Stride, à qui est dédié la chanson « Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp »

Bron Y-Aur n’est autre que le chalet situé au Pays de Galles dans lequel Robert Plant et Jimmy Page, deux des membres fondateurs de Led Zeppelin, résidèrent après une longue tournée aux États-Unis. C’est de cet endroit relativement isolé, sans électricité ni eau potable, que les deux compositeurs se sont inspirés pour composer le titre Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp, dédié à Strider, le chien de Plant, qu’ils avaient emmené avec eux dans le chalet.

Paroles de la chanson « BronYr-Aur Stomp »

Ah, caught you smiling at me

That's the way it should be

Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine

Ah, all the good times we had

I sang love songs so glad

Always smiling, never sad, so fine

 

As we walk down the country lane

I'll be singing a song, hear me calling your name

Hear the wind within the trees

Telling Mother Nature 'bout you and me

 

 

Well, if the sun shines so bright

Or on our way it's darkest night

The road we choose is always right, so fine

Ah, can your love be so strong

When so many loves go wrong?

Will our love go on and on and on and on and on and on?

 

As we walk down the country lanes

I'll be singing a song, hear me calling your name

Hear the wind within the trees

Telling Mother Nature 'bout you and me

 

My, my

La la la

Come on now, it ain't too far

Tell your friends all around the world

Ain't no companion like a blue eyed Merle

Come on now, well, let me tell you

What you're missing, messin' 'round them brick walls

 

So of one thing I am sure

It's a friendship so pure

Angels singing all around my door, so fine

Yeah, ain't but one thing to do

Spend my natural life with you

You're the finest dog I knew, so fine

 

When you're old and your eyes are dim

There ain't no old Shep gonna happen again

We'll still go walking down country lane

I'll sing the same old song, hear me call your name
