Matter of Time
(Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings)
This Land Is Your Land
(Woody Guthrie)


[2002]
Lyrics & Music by Sharon Jones
Album: Soul Time! [2011]

Sharon Jones



Recorded as a single in 2004 with a cover of Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land",
this song appeared on Soul Time!, a UK-released compilation of non-album tracks..
I was talking – to a friend of mine
Said he don't want no wars no more
They're building bombs – while our schools are falling
Tell me what in the hell we're paying taxes for..

What if we all -stopped paying taxes?
Now, what if we all -stopped paying taxes?
Stop paying taxes, y'all..

Now tell me who's -gonna buy their bombs
Their tanks, their planes and all their guns
Well, tell me who's -gonna pay for their wars
If we all get together and -cut their funds..


Listen people, listen to what I got to say
What if we all – stopped paying taxes?
Now, what if we all – stopped paying taxes?
Stop paying taxes y'all

There's something on my mind
and I think I've got to let it out..

They may take – nothing from us
That we -ain't ready to give
How can we talk – about the price of gas
When they're stealing our brothers and sister rights to live..

What if we all – stopped paying taxes?
Now, what if we all - stopped paying taxes?
Stop paying taxes, y'all..

What if we all – stopped paying taxes?
Now, what if we all – stopped paying taxes?
Stop paying taxes, y'all..

What if we all – stopped paying taxes
Y'all..

Great song. Are they tuned down? What key are they in? The bass line seems to be in between tunings...

"Lady Soul" Sharon Jones ha combattuto a lungo con il cancro.
Alla fine ha perso la battaglia ma ci ha lasciato un pugno di dischi veramente belli, penso soprattutto a "100 Days, 100 Nights" (2007), "I Learned the Hard Way" (2010) e "Give the People What They Want" (2014), quest'ultimo realizzato quando già il tumore al pancreas di cui soffriva la stava lentamente uccidendo.

100 Days, 100 Nights

Ma Sharon Jones non ha smesso di fare musica fino all'ultimo, esibendosi dal vivo con la consueta energia e completamente calva, a causa della chemioterapia, rifiutando di indossare una parrucca...

Sharon Jones, 4 maggio 1956 - 18 novembre 2016
