बॉब डिलन का विन्सेंट

बॉब डिलन

मशहूर गायक बॉब डिलन ने भी विन्सेंट को याद करते हुए एक गीत गाया था. इसे रॉबर्ट फ्रीमार्क ने लिखा था और यह संस्करण १९७६ की एक कंसर्ट से लिया गया है. आनंद लीजिये - 

I'd like to tell you a story
of a man that you might know.
His parents all called him Vincent,
his last name was Van Gogh.

He started drinking and painting
and living a life of sin.
He fell in with evil companions,
a man named Paul Gaugin.

They went to the city of Auvers,
pursuing their carnal delights.
They painted all during the afternoon
and they played music all night.

Now the people of that small city
thought he was a little bit queer,
to prove his love for mankind,
he chopped off his outside ear.

So they put him in an institution
but they could not keep him there.
He picked up his paints and his easel
and he went out to take some air.

He picked up his paints and his easel
and he went out to paint some crows.
They found him face down in a cornfield,
shot right between two rows.

Now where did Vincent van Go?

बॉब डायलन ने भी विन्सेंट पर गया था यह आज ही पता चला। धन्यवाद यह जानकारी देने के लिए। यद्यपि वान गॉग पर डॉन मैकलीन का लिखा मुझे अधिक पसंद है।
