Sufjan Stevens – Jacksonville

Una preciosa canción de Sufjan Stevens. Mi segunda preferida después de “Chicago”. Por alguna razón, me encanta esta canción y me hace sentir feliz, tranquilo y de buen humor :)

I'm not afraid of the black man running,
He's got it right, he's got a better life coming.
I don't care what the captain said,
I fold it right at the top of my head.
I lost my sight and the state packs in,
I follow my heart and it leads me right to Jackson.

Oh, Keller, oh, oh, oh, oh. 
She gave us a medal, she gave us a map.
Oh, Canner Row, oh, oh, oh.
If seeing is right, then look where you're at.

I'm not afraid of Nichol's Park,
I ride the train and I ride it after dark.
I'm not afraid to get it right,
I turn around and I give it one more try.
I said things that I meant to say,
The bandstand chairs and the Dewey Day parade.
I go out to the golden age,
The spirit is right and the spirit doesn't change.

Oh, Keller, oh, oh, oh, oh. 
She gave us a mirror, she gave us a map.
Oh, Canner Row, oh, oh, oh.
If seeing is right, then look where you're at.

Andrew Jackson, all I'm asking,
Show us the wheel and give us the wine.
Woohoo! Woohoo!
Raise the banner, Jackson hammer,
Everyone goes to the capitol line.
Woohoo! Woohoo!
Colored preacher, nice to meet you!
The spirit is here and the spirit is fine!
Woohoo! Woohoo!
Education, ask the nation,
You gave us our sight and the hearing is fine.
Woohoo! Woohoo!
Andrew Jackson, all I'm asking,
Give us the wheel and give us the wine.
