Por un eterno Summer Wine

Qué embriagador, fresco pero a la vez envolvente puede ser un vino de verano…

Uno que se bebe al medio día, en el momento preciso en que la pausa precede a la algarabía. Cuando nada más queda, que disfrutar de sabores y aromas, de divertidas conversaciones, en el placer culpable que conllevan esos sorbos coquetos, que vienen directo de nuestras copas.

O uno que se bebe al atardecer, cuando la puesta de sol llama a sostener nuestra mirada en el infinito. En ese horizonte inalcanzable, que por segundos pareciera, que podemos tocar con nuestra vista.

O uno que se disfruta al anochecer, cuando el límite de lo permitido se relaja y nuestros pasos pueden avanzar ya sin tapujos ni condiciones, hacia un destino incierto, no obstante placentero…

Sin duda, algo de esto hay la historia que narra el tema «Summer Wine» de Lee Hazelwood, el cual interpretara junto a Nancy Sinatra por primera vez, en 1967. Hoy existen varias versiones del mismo. Para que escojan y disfruten, les compartimos tres: The Ville Valo & Natalia Avelon, The Corrs & BonoLana Del Rey & Barrie James O’Neill.

¡Salud!

Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things.

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to.
A song that I had only sang to just a few.
She saw my silver spurs and said let’s pass some time
And I will give to you…summer wine
Oh..oh..oh…summer wine.

Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you…summer wine
Oh… Summer wine

My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak.
I tried to get up but I couldn’t find my feet.
She reassured me with the unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me…more summer wine
Woh.. Woh..Oh…Summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you…summer wine
Mmm… Summer wine

When I woke up, the sun was shining in my eyes.
My silver spurs were gone, my head felt twice its size.
She took my silver spurs, a dollar and a dime
And left me craving for…more summer wine
Oh.. Oh…  Summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring.
My summer wine is really made from all these things.
Take off those silver spurs, help me pass the time
And I will give to you my summer wine
Oh… oh… Summer wine.
