Covenant Woman, re-trans

Peter Posts Nachdichtung des Bob-Dylan-Songs „Covenant Woman“, rückübersetzt ins Amerikanische.
Re-translation from Peter Post’s German version of Bob Dylan’s „Covenant Woman“

German Version
Original Version

Covenant woman, you’ve got a contract with the Lord
Once in the after-life He will reward you for this day
Covenant woman, you shine for me like a star
I know I can trust you, you stay true to yourself at your core.

And I just wanna tell you, that I in any case
Belong to you just like the earth to outer-space
And I just wanna thank you, once more
That you pray for my
Salvation, and for yours
So thankful, always,
Will I be for you forever.

 

I was at the end, like a beggar lyin‘ on the ground
The Lord will save me, I’m just waitin‘ for this day
And I know He’ll do it, since He is so good and true
He must have loved me oh so much, if He brought you here to me

And I just wanna tell you, that I in any case
Belong to you just like the earth to outer-space
And I just wanna thank you, once more
That you pray for my
Salvation, and for yours
So thankful, always,
Will I be for you forever.

 

Covenant woman, trusted, little child
You know about all these things of me that are hidden from the world
And you know, we’re strangers, on the whole globe
I will always be with you, I am, like you, in the covenant

 

And I just wanna tell you, that I in any case
Belong to you just like the earth to outer-space
And I just wanna thank you, once more
That you pray for my
Salvation, and for yours
So thankful, always,
Will I be for you forever.
