La solitude et le regret de l’amour délaissé, l’espoir que ce regret est réciproque, voici un thème classique de la chanson traditionnelle, illustré par ce Are You Lonesome Tonight enregistré par la Carter Family. J’ai compté les jours et j’ai compté les nuits, j’ai compté les mois et les années, j’ai compté sur toi depuis que nos chemins se sont séparés, dis-moi chérie, es-tu seule cette nuit ?

ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT

(Chorus 🙂
Are you lonesome tonight, do you miss me, I say
Are you sorry we drifted apart
Does your memories cling to that bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart

Like a rose on the vine I am clinging to you
As I did when we drifted apart
I am wishing you back to that little shack
Where I kissed you and called you sweetheart

Does the chair in your parlor seem empty and bare
Do you miss me and wish I was there
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight

(Chorus)

I have counted the days, I have counted the nights
I’ve counted the months and the years
I have counted on you since we’ve drifted apart
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight

(Chorus)
