PERCY SLEDGE - (1966) - When a man loves a woman

When a man loves a woman

Can't keep his mind on nothin' else

He'd trade the world

For a good thing he's found

If she is bad, he can't see it

She can do no wrong

Turn his back on his best friend

If he put her down

When a man loves a woman

Spend his very last dime

Trying to hold on to what he needs

He'd give up all his comforts

And sleep out in the rain

/ If she said that's the way

It ought to be

/When a ^man loves a woman

// I give you everying I've got(yeah)

/Tyring to hold on Too your precious love

Baby please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman

/Down deep in his soul

She can bring him such misery

If she is playing him for a fool

He's the last one to know

Loveing eyes can never see

When a man loves a woman

Spend his very last dime

Trying to hold on to what he needs

He'd give up all his comforts

And sleep out in the rain

/ If she said that's the way

It ought to be

Yes when a man loves a woman

I know exactly how he feels

'Cause baby, baby, baby

I am a man
