Letra:

Well, I built me a raft and she’s ready for floating, old Mississippi, she’s calling my name, catfish are jumping, that paddle wheel thumping, black water keeps rolling on past just the same. Old black water, keep on rolling, Mississippi moon, wont you keep on shining on me, old black water, keep on rolling, Mississippi moon, wont you keep on shining on me, old black water, keep on rolling, Mississippi moon, wont you keep on shining on me. Yeah, keep on shining your light, gonna make everything, pretty mama, gonna make everything all right, and I aint got no worries, cause I aint in no hurry at all.

Well, if it rains, I dont care, dont make no difference to me, just take that street car that’s going up town, yeah, I’d like to hear some funky Dixieland, and dance a honky tonk, and I’ll be buying everybody drinks all round. Old black water, keep on rolling, Mississippi moon, wont you keep on shining on me, old black water, keep on rolling, Mississippi moon, wont you keep on shining on me, old black water, keep on rolling, Mississippi moon, wont you keep on shining on me. Yeah, keep on shining your light, gonna make everything, pretty mama, gonna make everything all right, and I aint got no worries, cause I aint in no hurry at all.

I’d like to hear some funky Dixieland, pretty mama come and take me by the hand, by the hand, take me by the hand pretty mama. Come and dance with your daddy all night long, I want to honky tonk, honky tonk, honky tonk, with you all night long.

Nombre: Who’ll stop the rain.

Letra:

Long as I remember The rain been coming down, clouds of myst’ry pouring, confusion on the ground, good men through the ages, trying to find the sun, and I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain.

I went down Virginia, seeking shelter from the storm, caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow, five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains, and I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain.

Heard the singers playing, how we cheered for more, the crowd had rushed together, trying to keep warm, still the rain kept pouring, falling on my ears, and I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain.

Creedence Clearwater Revival. Proud Mary.

septiembre 24, 2009

Video de versión en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Proud Mary.

Letra:

Left a good job in the city, working for The Man every night and day, and I never lost one minute of sleeping, worrying ‘bout the way things might have been.

Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning, rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis, pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans, but I never saw the good side of the city, until I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.

Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river, if you come down to the river, bet you gonna find some people who live. You don’t have to worry ‘cause you have no money, people on the river are happy to give.

Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river, rolling, rolling, rolling on the river, rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.
