Willie Deville: Storybook Love

Ok, esta es mi canción favorita.

Es un tema que Willie y Mark Knopfler hicieron para una de mis películas más queridas, que es ni más ni menos que la adaptación de mi libro favorito de toda la vida: The Princess Bride, una auténtica joya de  William Goldman (Maratón de la muerte).

En unos días voy a comenzar a leer una edición especial que se editó a raíz del 30 aniversario donde el escritor incluyó material que había quedado afuera en la edición original,  además de un extenso nuevo prólogo.

Si por esas cosas de la vida  nunca escucharon a los invito a que lo hagan en este video, donde brinda una muy buena interpretación de este tema. Un gran artista que vale la pena conocer.

Para aquellos que les pueda interesar les dejo la letra de este tremendo tema con los acordes para tocar en guitarra.

D                  G          D
Come my love, I'll tell you a tale,
D                     A7          D
 
Of a boy and girl, and their Love Story.
D                     G     D
And how he loved her, oh so much,
D                      A7     D
And all the charms she did possess.
 
Now this did happen once upon a time,
When things were not so complex.
And how he worshipped the ground she walked,
And when he looked in her eyes, he became obsessed.
(coro)

B                 C       G*    B
My love is like a storybook story,
B                G   A          B
But it's as real as the feelings I feel.
B                 C       G*    B
My love is like a storybook story,
B                   G   A          B
But it's as real as the feelings I feel.
B                   G   A          G
But it's as real as the feelings I feel.
 
His love was stronger than the power so dark,
A prince could have within his keeping.
His spells to weave and steal her heart,
Within her heart but only sleaping.
 
(He said) "Don't you know I love you oh so much,
Lay my heart at the foot of your dress."
(She said) "Don't you know that Storybook Loves
Always have a happy ending."
Then he swooped her up, just like in the books, 
And on his stallion, they rode away.
