Lee Hazlewood (1929-2007)



Morreu há dois dias um dos maiores compositores de canções de sempre. Para a história da música popular ficam gravadas pérolas como "Houston", "I've Been Down for So Long (It Looks Like up to Me)", "These Boots Are Made for Walking", "Sand", "Jackson", "Some Velvet Morning", estes representativos essencialmente da fase mais popular, em que colaborou de muito perto com Nancy Sinatra.

Some Velvet Morning

Lee:
Some velvet morning when I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate
And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
and how she gave me life
and how she made it in
Some velvet morning when I'm straight

Nancy:
Flowers growing on the hill
Dragonflies and daffodils
Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name

Lee:
Some velvet morning when I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate
And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
and how she gave me life
and how she made it in
Some velvet morning when I'm straight

Nancy:
Flowers are the things we knew
Secrets are the things we grew
Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name

Lee:
Some velvet morning when I'm straight
Nancy:
Flowers growing on the hill
Lee:
I'm gonna open up your gate
Nancy:
Dragonflies and daffodils
Lee:
And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
Nancy:
Learn from us very much
Lee:
And how she gave me life
Nancy:
Look at us but do not touch
Lee:
and how she made it in
