from "Black Gold" (1969)

Black is the color of my true love's hair
Black is the color of my love, so fair
Black is her body, so firm, so gold
Black is her beauty, her soul of gold

I carry my love in my heart everywhere
And no matter where I go she is always there

I remember how she came to me in a vision of my mind
I remember how she said to me: „Don't ever look behind"
She said: „Look ahead" - and I would see someone always loving me...

Her picture is painted in my memory without a color of despair
And no matter where I go she is always there

from "Black Gold" (1969)

 

 

This is amazing. It is so much better than all other versions that everyone else sounds shrill, empty or amateurish. Nina Simone was an extraordinary musician, and she recorded this song long before it became popular in the New Age Celtic set (who erroneously imagine that the song is Irish -- it's from Appalachia !
