Vershnyky grozy (Riders On The Storm)

Вершники грози,
Вершники грози
В хаті цій народжені,
В цьому світі кинуті.
Мов собаки без кістки,
Мов актори-жебраки —
Вершники грози.

Ходить вбивця вздовж шосе,
Його дах ось-ось знесе.
В відпустку довгу йдіть
Й дітей своїх візьміть.
Як зустрінете його —
Смерть чекає кожного.
Вбивця на шосе!

Хлопця ти свого кохай,
Хлопця ти свого кохай,
Долоні зігрівай,
Зрозуміти дай —
Увесь світ належить нам,
Та безмежним є життя.
Ти його кохай.

Вершники грози,
Вершники грози
В хаті цій народжені,
В цьому світі кинуті.
Мов собаки без кістки,
Мов актори-жебраки —
Вершники грози.

Riders On The Storm (Song by Jim Morrison, The Doors)

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we're born
Into this world we're thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out alone
Riders on the storm

There's a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin' like a toad
Take a long holiday
Let your children play
If ya give this man a ride
Sweet FAMILY will die
Killer on the road, yeah

Girl ya gotta love your man
Girl ya gotta love your man
Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The world on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man, yeah

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we're born
Into this world we're thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out alone
Riders on the storm

In the early sixties, a student of Jim met a girl named Mary, who lived a few hundred miles away. Jim often went to her hitchhiking, sitting on a deserted night road in random cars. Jim figures of the time often appeared the image of a lonely traveling men. It is quite possible that in those times begins the story of the song "Riders on the Storm".

Guitarist of The Doors Robby Krieger claimed that this song was inspired by the song by Stan Jones "Ghost Riders in the Sky". According to another version, the source of inspiration was the film "the rain Passenger" directed by rené clément. It is thought that in the song there are memories from my childhood of Jim Morrison when he witnessed the accident that claimed several lives.
