Soul Man Lyrics

Coming to you, on a dusty road
Good loving, I got a truckload
And when you get it, you got something
Don’t worry, ’cause I’m coming

I’m a soul man x4
And that ain’t all

Got what I got, the hard way
And I make it better, each and every day
So honey, no don’t you fret
‘Cause you ain’t seen-a, nothing yet

I’m a soul man x4

I was brought up, on a side street, yes mam!
I learned how to love, before I could eat
I was educated, at Woodstock
When I start loving, oh I can’t stop

I’m a soul man x4

Look – grab the rope and I’ll pull you in
Give you hope and be your only boyfriend
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah!)

I’m talking about a soul man
I’m a soul man
And you’re a soul man
Soul man (oh lord)
Soul man
(I’m a) soul man
(And you are) soul man
(And you’re a) soul man
