Текст песни Paul McCartney — Brown Eyed Handsome Man

"Brown Eyed Handsome Man" is a rock and roll song by Chuck Berry, which was originally released in 1956 as the B side to "Too Much Monkey Business". It was also included on Berry's 1957 debut album After School Session. The song title was also used as the title of a biography of Berry.

Relevance in race relations

Glenn C. Altschuler explains that the lyrics of this song "played slyly with racial attitudes and even fears." Martha Bayles elaborates, noting that "Berry's penchant for bragging about his "Brown Eyed Handsome Man"’s appeal for white females outraged a lot of people."

Cover versions

The song has been covered by many artists, including Buddy Holly, who posthumously had a top-five hit with the song in the United Kingdom in 1963.[4] Nina Simone covered the song on her 1967 album, High Priestess of Soul, as did Waylon Jennings on a single from his 1970 album, Waylon. It was also covered by Robert Cray on the 1987 live tribute album to Berry, Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, and by Paul McCartney on his 1999 album Run Devil Run and also released as a double A side single with "No Other Baby".
