¿QUÉ ES RADIO AMEBA?

Es un blog dedicado al soundtrack de mi vida, a las canciones que me acompañan en diferentes momentos, que me traen recuerdos, que me inspiran a escribir, que me mueven a pensar, e incluso a veces, a llorar, o simplemente a estar alegre.

Con este blog quiero compartir esas letras, quiero darlas a conocer porque se que en algún lugar, alguien también recuerda esa canción, esa melodía pérdida... y este puede ser un lugar para encontrarla.

Un abrazo.

SKIP JAMES - Devil got my woman

Está canción la conocí por formar parte del soundtrack de la película del 2001 "Ghost World" (adaptación del cómic que lleva el mismo nombre) protagonizada por Thora Birch (American Beauty) y Scarlett Johanson.

Una hermosa canción, que suena como un lamento:



(La letra podría no coincidir con la versión del vídeo)

You know, I'd rather be the ol' devil
Well, I'd rather be the devil
Then to be that woman' man
You know, rather be the devil
Than to be that woman' man

You know, I'm so sorry
You know, so sorry
That I ever fell in love wit' you-ooo-hoo-oo
Because you know you don't treat me
Baby, like you used ta do-hoo

You know, I laid down last night
You know, I laid down last night
And I thought to take me some rest
But my mind got to rambling
Like a wild geese from the west

You know the woman that I love
The woman that I love
I stol't her from my best friend
But you know he done got lucky
An he done got her back, again

You know, I used to cut your kindleing
You know, I used to cut your kindleing
Baby, then I made you some fire
Then I would tote all your water
Way, way, way, from the bogy brier

You know, my baby she don't drink whiskey
My baby, she don't drink no whiskey
An I know she ain't crazy about wine
Now, it was nothin' but the ol' devil
He done changed my baby's mind

You know, I could be right
You know, I could be right
Then again, I could be wrong
But it was nothin' but the ol' devil
He done got my baby
Now he done gone.

*I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman's man
I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman's man
Aw, nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind
Was nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind
I laid down last night, laid down last night
I laid down last night, tried to take my rest
My mind got to ramblin', like a wild geese
From the west, from the west
The woman I love, woman that I loved
Woman I loved, took her from my best friend
But he got lucky, stoled her back again
But he got lucky, stoled her back again
