Bob Dylan A Hard Rain's A‐Gonna Fall Oh, where have you been, my blue‐eyed son? Oh, where have you been, h h h b my darling young one? I ve stumbled on the side I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains, I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways, I' I've stepped in the middle di h iddl of seven sad forests, I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans a dozen dead oceans, I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard, And it's a hard, and it's a hard, i ' h d di ' h d it's a hard, and it's a hard, And it's a hard rain's a‐gonna fall.
Una dura lluvia va a caer Oh,¿dónde has estado, mi querido hijo de ojos azules? ¿dónde has estado, mi joven querido? He tropezado con la ladera He tropezado con la ladera de doce brumosas montañas, he andado y me he arrastrado en seis autopistas curvadas, he andado en medio de siete bosques sombríos, he estado delante de una docena de océanos muertos de una docena de océanos muertos, me he adentrado diez mil millas en la boca de un cementerio, y es dura, es dura, es dura, es muy dura, es muy dura la lluvia que va a caer.
