I GOT A WOMAN


Este gran tema de Ray Charles apareció en un single publicado en 1954 por la Atlantic.
Esta canción está considerada como uno de los más representativos prototipos del género rhythm and blues.
Es una de mis preferidas.
Cinco años más tarde, este gran genio llamado Ray Charles, lanzaría su mundialmente conocido What'd I Say, otro excepcional tema, quizás el mejor de todos y al igual que "I Got A Woman", versionado por la mayoría de los grandes artistas del momento.



Es una de las canciones más versionadas de este género, destacando entre todos los intérpretes a Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Bobby Darin, Adam Faith, Roy Orbison, Al Kooper, The Monkees, Ricky Nelson, Stevie Wonder, Johnny Cash, Them, Bill Halley, Tom Petty, Bryan Adams, Sammy Davies Jr. Johnny Hallyday, Ligthnin' Hopkins, y un largo etc......

Aquí tenéis la letra:

Well.........
I got a woman way over town that's good to me oh yeah
Say I got a woman way over town good to me oh yeah
She give me money when Im in need
Yeah she's a kind of friend indeed
I got a woman way over town that's good to me oh yeah

She saves her lovin early in the morning just for me oh yeah
She saves her lovin early in the morning just for me oh yeah
She saves her lovin just for me oh she love me so tenderly
I got a woman way over town that's good to me oh yeah

  ------------Solo

She's there to love me both day and night
Never grumbles or fusses always treats me right
Never runnin in the streets and leavin me alone
She knows a womans place is right there now in her home

I got a woman way over town that's good to me oh yeah
Say I got a woman way over town that's good to me oh yeah
Oh she's my baby now don't you understand
Yeah and I'm her lover man
I got a woman way over town that's good to me oh yeah

A Don't ya know she's alright
A Don't ya know she's alright
she's alright she's alright
Whoa yeah oh yeah oh
