The Red Queen Theme


Lyrics/Muziek: Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Nick Mason
Zang: David Gilmour

Andere titel voor “Country Song” , waarschijnlijk vernoemd naar de Red Queen , een persoon in de novel “Through the Looking-Glass”( Lewis Carroll ).
Country Song is ook gerelateerd aan “Rain In The Country.

Het nummer was opgenomen voor de film Zabriskie Point, maar werd niet gebruikt. In 1997 kwam er een 2CD van Zabriskie Point uit, waar dit nummer en andere niet gebruikte nummers staan.

Terug te vinden op:

Zabriskie Point 2CD (1997)


He made his way to the border
In the shadow under the trees
Down by a stream in a hollow
Turn your head feel the breeze

And the red Queen was waiting for the news
For the white King to move
And the balance hung upon the head of one who tried
To stay within the shadows
And keep his undercover secret tight

They let him in by a backway
Into a chamber reserved for the Queen
She took the note that he gave her
Opened it slowly and started to read

Run to the treasury and bring me back some gold
Give it to the pawn who came, she cried
He says the white King thinks the game of chess is wrong
And all the courtiers crowded her
and this is what she told the gathered round

Go to the store by the dungeon
Take all the red paint take all the white
Make up a newborn colour
Cover your neighbor we’ll be all right

There will be no game today, she cried across the board
Everyday will be a holiday
And all the pieces cheered as tidings spread abroad
And the Pink Queen sat
and smiled at the cat who smiled back
