Scott Walker - Where Does Brown Begin Lyrics




To my mind, it all seemed a little strange
That the people won't do the thing they ought to
Some folks say the world ain't ever gonna change
But in my heart I believe the other folks who got to-
Who can't afford not to

The daytime's bright, the nighttime's wonderful-
And the twilight never really brings it to an end
If white is right, and black is beautiful-
Lord, where does brown begin?
Tell me people- where does brown begin?

Fire and water won't be mixing, so they say
But I've seen the steamclouds rising, high and free
Salt and pepper don't get in each other's way
They just come together, and when they don't agree-
They let each other be

The daytime's right, the nighttime wonderful-
And twilight never really brings it to an end
If white is right, and black is beautiful-
Lord, where does brown begin?
Tell me people- where does brown begin?

    The definitive rendition of this great Jimmy Webb song. Why does Scott Walker seem to make every song he sings his very own?

    This is from his 1973 album Stretch, not highly regarded by the critics, but it contains some of his greatest performances. The orchestrations rival those on his classic sixties' albums.

    Thank you for uploading this. It's a treasure!

    This song was not written by Jimmy Webb but Jay & The Americans which they recorded before the Walker Brothers of course. Both versions are superb.
