about

La melodia di uno strumento a una corda, diddley-bow viene chiamato, il brano più breve del disco. Il testo è scivolato fuori in modo naturale, come la filastrocca di un incantesimo. L'insetto, bo weavil o boll weevil, veniva a infestare le coltivazioni di cotone dove il blues è nato...l'ispirazione è venuta così. Immaginando tutto il bagaglio di magia e ritualità che c'era in queste comunità per combattere la schiavitù cantando la libertà.

A melody made by a one-string-instrument named diddley-bow. The shortest song on the album.
The lyrics flew out naturally, like a magic spell. This bug, called bo weavil or boll weevil, infested the cotton fields, the land where the blues began. So the inspiration came from that. Thinking to the rituals and superstitions that took a great place in those communities, attempting to fight the slavery singing words of freedom.

lyrics

(trad. / arr. Laino)

Rollin' down the way Bo Weavil
Rollin' down the way...
