JOE SOUTH - GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
Uploaded by philatelic
Oh les jeux peuplent le jeu maintenant chaque nuit et chaque jour ne
signifiant maintenant jamais ce qu'ils disent ne jamais dire
maintenant ce que veulent dire ils
Et ils parti wile les heures dans leurs tours d'ivoire jusqu'à
ce qu'ils soient dissimulés de fleurs dans le dos d'une limousine
Accès parlant du da DEA de da de da de da de La-da de da de da de da
de da de la La-DEA DEA DEA 'vous et moi et les jeux peuplent le jeu
Oh nous faisons à une une autre rupture de cri un coeur alors
que nous disons qu'au revoir la croix nos coeurs et nous espèrent
mourir que l'autre devait blâmer
Ni l'un ni l'autre un ne donneront dedans ainsi nous regardons
nos huit par l''accès dix de pensée les choses qui pourraient avoir
été lui sont une honte putréfiée modifiée
Répétez Le Choeur
Peuplez en marchant jusqu'à vous la gloire Haleakala de chant
et ils essayent de la cogner à vous au nom du seigneur
Ils vont vous enseigner que comment méditer lisez votre
horoscope, trichent votre foi et plus loin plus à l'enfer avec haine
avancent et obtiennent à bord
Répétez Le Choeur
Le regard m'indiquent autour que ce que vous voyez ce
qu'arrive à vous et je Dieu m'accorde la sérénité pour me rappeler
qui je suis
Cause vous avez renoncé à votre validité pour votre fierté
et votre vanité vous tourne triste sur l'humanité et vous ne donnez
pas un da de da de da de da de da
Répétez Le Choeur
Joe South (born Joseph Alfred Souter, 28 February 1940, in Atlanta, Georgia) is a Grammy Award winning American singer-songwriter with a distinctive guitar sound.
South had several hits in the late 1960s and early 1970s with songs such as "Don't It Make You Wanna Go Home" and "Walk a Mile in My Shoes". His biggest and most remembered single was "Games People Play" (1969), a Top 10 hit on both sides of the Atlantic. It won the "Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Song", the "Grammy Award for Song of the Year", and which bears a striking resemblance to the children's gospel song, "I Don't Want to Be a Pharisee". It was featured on his first album, Introspect.
He had met and was encouraged by Bill Lowery, an Atlanta music publisher and radio personality. He began his recording career in Atlanta with National Recording Corporation, where he served as staff guitarist along with other NRC artists Ray Stevens and Jerry Reed. South's earliest recordings have been re-released by NRC on CD.
South's compositions have been recorded by many artists. They include Billy Joe Royal's hits "Down in the Boondocks" and "Hush" (later a hit for Deep Purple and Kola Shaker), the Osmonds' hit "Yo-Yo," and Elvis Presley's Laos Vegas-era version of "Walk a Mile in My Shoes", also recorded by Bryan Ferry and Conduct. South's most commercially successful composition is Lynn Anderson's 1971 country/pop monster hit "(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden", which was a hit in 16 countries worldwide. Lynn Anderson won a Grammy Award for her vocals and South won a Grammy Award for writing the song. South would go on to write more hits for Anderson such as, "How Can I Uncover You" (Billboard #1) and "Fool Me" (Billboard #3).
South was also a prominent sideman,
recording the memorable guitar part on Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools"
Tommy Roe's "Sheila" as well as appearing on Bob Dylan's album Blondie on Blondie. He also played the electric guitar part that was added to Simon & Garfunkel's first hit, "The Sound of Silence".
The suicide of his brother, Tommy, drove South into a deep depression. Tommy had been his backing band's drummer and accompanied South not only in live performances, but also on recording sessions when South produced hits for other artists, including Billy Joe Royal, Sandy Pusey, and Friend & Lover.
South was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1979.
In 1988 Dutch DJ, Jan Donkeys, interviewed Joe South for VAPOR-radio. The radio show that aired the interview also played four new songs by South, but a new record was not released.
On 13 September 2003 South was inducted into Georgia Music Hall of Fame, and played together with Buddy Busier, J.R. Cobb and Chips Mo man at the induction ceremony.
