Versuri Emmylou Harris - Broken Man's Lament



I was once a broken man 
I was once a broken fool 
Lost my wife and children 
To one basic broken rule 
 
Now I live my life in silence 
Though I'm not quite in a shell 
I drink and listen to that song 
'A Whiter Shade of Pale', oh 
A Whiter Shade of Pale 
 
I was a good shade tree mechanic 
So I sent myself to school 
They smoothed out my rough edges 
In my hands they put new tools 
 
The instructor, once he told me 
I could work on any line 
I could tune to make a diesel sing 
Just like Patsy Cline, oh 
Just like Patsy Cline 
 
Well, I met my wife to be 
Through my mother's best friend's son 
She'd been a barroom singer 
She was as good as anyone 
 
But I asked her to stop singing 
And the girl, she did not flinch 
Next day she went and bought that man 
A brand new crescent wrench, oh 
A brand new crescent wrench 
 
We had three fine children 
As eight years went on by 
And earned a supervising line 
My knuckles stayed bone dry 
 
But after supper I kept hearing her 
By the kitchen radio 
Singing sweet but desperate harmony 
A little bit too low, oh 
A little bit too low 
 
She left three months later 
I'd just come home for lunch 
Note said "Easy come, hard go 
I still love you so much" 
 
She said, "I don't know if I'll be there 
Or if you'll want me when I come 
But if and when that happens, dear 
You'd better let my sweet dream run", oh 
Let my sweet dream run 
 
Oh, oh 
Oh, oh 
Oh, oh 
 
I was a good shade tree mechanic 
So I sent myself to school 
They smoothed out my rough edges 
In my hand they put new tools 
 
The instructor once he told me 
I could work on any line 
But now my diesels ain't the only thing 
That sing like Patsy Cline, oh 
Sing like Patsy Cline 
 
I was once a broken man 
I was once a broken fool 
Lost my wife and children 
To one basic broken rule 
 
Now I live my life in silence 
Though I'm not quite in a shell 
I drink and listen to that song 
'A Whiter Shade of Pale', oh 
 
A Whiter Shade of Pale, oh 
A Whiter Shade of Pale, oh 
A Whiter Shade of Pale
