I Got a Woman

download

(Charles)

 

Informação:
I Got a Woman foi escrita e gravada pela primeira vez (com o título I've Got a Woman) por Ray Charles em 1954 na estação de rádio WGST, nos campos da Universidade de Tecnologia da Georgia, em Atlanta. Charles baseou a melodia da canção gospel My Jesus Is All the World I Need. A sua gravação (Atlantic 1050) chegou ao 2º lugar da tabela de rhythm and blues da Billboard no início de 1955. Outras gravações populares de I Got a Woman incluem a de Jimmy McGriff (Sue 770), um instrumental de 1962; a de Ricky Nelson (Decca 31475) em 1963; a de Freddie Scott (Colpix 709) em 1963; e a de Bob Luman (Epic 10755) em 1971. Tanto Charles como McGriff utilizaram o título I've Got a Woman.

 

Elvis cantou I Got a Woman no Louisiana Hayride e em tournée durante 1955. Algumas pessoas especulam que ele gravou a canção enquanto ainda estava na Sun Records, mas não existem quaisquer provas disso.

 

Às 14h00 de 10 de janeiro de 1956, Elvis gravou I Got a Woman nos estúdios da RCA, em Nashville. Foi a sua primeira gravação para a RCA. Os músicos na sessão foram Elvis, Scotty Moore, Bill Black, D.J. Fontana e Floyd Cramer. Os apoios vocais foram disponibilizados por Gordon Stoker, Ben Speer e Brock Speer. I Got a Woman apareceu no primeiro LP de Elvis, Elvis Presley, e posteriormente, em 1956, foi lançado em single. Não entrou nas tabelas. Na Inglaterra, I Got a Woman foi lançada em álbuns com o título I Got a Sweetie.

 

Elvis cantou I Got a Woman na sua primeira apresentação no Stage Show (28 de janeiro de 1956). Uma atuação da canção em Hampton Roads, Virginia, em 9 de abril de 1972, foi utilizada no documentário Elvis On Tour. I Got a Woman era uma presença constante do repertório de Elvis nos anos 70. Cantava-a muitas vezes em medley com Amen.

 

Letra:

1. Well, I've got a woman
way cross town
She's good to me oh, yeah
Say I've got a woman way cross town
She's good to me oh, yeah

She's good in the morning, loving me
Yeah, she's a kind of friend in need

I got a woman way cross town

She's good to me, oh yeah

She says she loves me early in the morning just for me, oh yeah

She says she loves me early in the morning just for me, oh yeah
She's good to lovin' just for me, yeah

You know she loves me so tenderly

I got a woman way cross town

She's good to me, oh yeah


She's there to love me both day and night
Never groans or fusses, just treats me right
Never running in the streets leaving me alone
She knows a woman's place is right there now in her home

1. (repete)


Oh she's my baby, don't you understand I'm her lover man
I got a woman way over town, she's good to me, oh yeah
A don't ya know she's alright, she's alright, alright

I got a woman way over town good to me

Yeah
