The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army



I'm gonna fight 'em off
A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back

And I'm talking to myself at night
Because I can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message coming from my eyes
Says leave it alone

Don't want to hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell

And if I catch it coming back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do
And a feeling coming from my bones
Says find a home

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera forevermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think no more
And the stains coming from my blood
tell me "go back home".

The White Stripes. Elephant (2003).

Magnífico LP. Me gustan todas las canciones, si bien es cierto que la que has elegido es especialmente destacable.

The White Stripes lograron con este disco una de sus mejores obras y uno de los discos más interesantes de lo que llevamos de siglo.

Impresionante tema, inmisericorde bajo y espectacular riff de guitarra para la historia del rock. Imprescindible.
