A Murder ballad set in North Carolina; a story of a man obsessed by the words of a bigoted mother who told him since he was a child, that someone’s fate depends more on the will of the Lord rather than on our choices. Therefore, every step of the main character’s life was conditioned by his mother’s beliefs until 1953, when she dies of a heart attack a few months after he murdered his own wife.

 

I piani del signore

words & music by Andrea Parodi

 

In North Carolina quand’ero bambino
Aspettavo la neve davanti al camino
Mia madre mi disse tra gioia e dolore
Saranno i piani del Signore

Dalle parti di Jackson sulla strada del mare
Incontrai una ragazza e la portai sull’altare
E tutte le notti facevamo l’amore
Erano i piani del Signore

La quarta notte di ottobre del ‘53
Quando tornai dal lavoro e non venne verso di me
Pendeva dal muro e cambiava colore
Erano i piani del Signore

Venne l’estate e caricai il mio fucile
Guidai la mia Chevy fino al vecchio fienile
Non si era ammazzata vi avevo mentito
Le sparai nella fronte perché mi aveva tradito
Le sparai quattro volte perché mi aveva tradito

In North Carolina c’è ancora la neve
E penso a mia madre che balla e che beve
Quell’inverno a mia madre si fermò il cuore
Erano i piani del Signore
