“Beneath these bones let these words be seen: «The running gears of a boppin’ machine»”

Il bombardiere biondo Ronnie Dawson ci impartisce a diciannove anni, per ribadirle con immutata convinzione negli anni a venire, le previdenti e dettagliate istruzioni da seguire dopo la sua dipartita, poi avvenuta per davvero assai prematuramente nel 2003. Parole profetiche: “the rock ‘n’ roll daddy has done past on but his bones keep rockin’ long after I’m gone”.



Gli High Noon, gruppo che accompagna Dawson in questi video del 1995 si compongono di:

  • Shaun Young — rhythm guitar
  • Sean Mencher — lead guitar
  • Kevin Smith — upright bass
  • Lisa Pankratz — drums

Roll on, rock on, yeah now bop, yeah rock on
Well, there's still a lot of rhythm in these rockin' bones

I wanna leave a happy memory when I go
I wanna leave something to let the whole world know
That the rock 'n' roll daddy has done past on
But his bones keep rockin' long after I'm gone

Roll on, rock on, yeah now bop, yeah rock on
Well, there's still a lot of rhythm in these rockin' bones

Well when I die, buried six foot deep
With a rock 'n' roll record at my feet
A phonograph needle in my hand
I'm gonna rock my way right out of this land

Roll on, rock on, yeah now bop, yeah rock on
Well, there's still a lot of rhythm in these rockin' bones

Well, when I die don't bury me at all
Just a-hang my bones upon the wall
Beneath these bones let these words be seen:
"The running gears of a boppin' machine"

Rol on, rock on, yeah now bop, yeah rock on
Well, there's still a lot of rhythm in these rockin' bones
Still a lot of rhythm in these rockin' bones
Still a lot of rhythm in these rockin' bones
Still a lot of rhythm in these rockin' bones
