Solomon Burke. It makes no difference



Well, it makes no difference how far I go
Like the scar that hurts, it will always show
It makes no difference who I meet
They are just faces in the crowd on a dead-end street

It makes no difference where I turn
I can't get over you and the flame still burns
It makes no difference, night or day
The shadow never seems to fade away

And the sun don't shine anymore, yeah
You know the rain falls down on my door

Now there's no love as true as love
That dies untold
But the clouds never hung so low
So low before

Well, well, well, makes no difference how far I go
Like a scar the hurts it will always show
It makes no difference who in the world I meet
They're just a faces in the crowd on a dead-end street

And the sun don't shine, just don't shine anymore
No more
You know the rain falls down around my door
Yes, it does

These old love letters, well, I just can't keep
'Cause like the gambler says
You just gotta read 'em and weep
And the dawn some how won't rescue me, no more

Without your love I'm nothing at all
Like an empty hall, it's a lonely fall
Since you've been gone it's a losing battle
That stampeding cattle, they just rattle the walls

And the sun don't shine anymore
Oh, let me tell y'all
And the rain falls down, falls down around my door

Well, I love you so much
It's all I can do
Just to keep myself from telling you
That I never felt so alone before

I know that the sun don't shine anymore
Somebody help me say it
And the rain falls down all around my door
Got to say it again

Sun don't shine anymore
Rain falls down around my door

Conoci esta version gracias a ti. Como fan babeante que soy de The Band no puedo sino aplaudir a rabiar esta version de Bourke. Es impresionante.

Es una cancion enorme de por si, con un Danko en estado de gracia, pero me encanta la version de Bourke. Llena de nuevos matices (esa cadencia semi-hablada es unica) pero manteniendo su esencia emotiva.

Una delicia.

Desde luego el original es una jodida maravilla (en especial me encanta la versión que grabaron para "The last waltz"), pero Burke desde luego hace una enorme versión también. Gracias por compartirla.
