Paradigmenwechsel


Dass Bob Dylan Recht hatte, als er sang „The Times They Are A-Changin“, kann man am Titelbild der FAZ vom 26. Oktober erkennen. Es huldigt dem 66-jährigen Stones-Gitarristen Keith Richards. Auch andere Paradigmen werden sich ändern. Wir werden Zeugen sein.

Hier der Text:

Salt Of The Earth

Let‘s drink to the hard working people
Let‘s drink of the lowly of birth
Raise your glass to the good and the evil
Let‘s drink to the salt of the earth

Say a prayer for the common foot soldier
Spare a thought for his back breaking work
Spare a part for his wife and his children
Who burn the fires and who still till the earth

And when I look into the this faceless crowd
A swirling mass of gray blue
Black and white
They don‘t look real to me
In fact, we all look so strange

Raise your glass to the hard working people
Let‘s drink to the uncounted heads
Let‘s think of the wavering millions
Who need leading but get gamblers instead

Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
And a parade of the gray suited grafters
A choice of cancer or polio

And when I look into this faceless crowd
A swirling mass of grays and
Black and white
They don‘t look real to you
Or do we look too strange

Let‘s drink to the hard working people
Let‘s think of the lowly of birth
Spare a thought for the rag taggy people
Let‘s drink to the salt of the earth

Let‘s drink to the hard working people
Let‘s drink to the salt of the earth
Let‘s drink to the three thousand million
Let‘s think of the humble of birth
