Don't take her for granted
She had a hard time
Don't misunderstand her
Or play with her mind
Treat her so gently
It will pay you in time
You gotta know
She's a sensitive kind

Tell her you love her
Each and every night
You will discover
She will treat you right
If you believe
I know you will find
There ain't nothing like
A sensitive kind

She gets so lonely
Waiting for you
You are the only
Thing to help her through
Don't take her for granted
She had a hard time
You gotta knowshe's a sensitive kind

Santana covered this on the album Zebop. 
 
And a pretty good cover it is too, much like the rest of the album, but then I might be a bit biased....memories of first serious girlfriend, listening to Santana in her room, and, well, ....  
JJ Cale's version is the definitive version of this for me. Nice that Bill followed this with Crazy Mama by JJ.
very nice .....10
I have heard this k8nd of song from many different artist.  I like this version.
I've been a John Mayall fan since the 70s. My dad had a couple of his albums which I loved.  The BluesBreakers   were  my intro in to BLUES!  Saw John live a couple years ago in  Grass Valley CA. Great show he still has it! 
John's got a new album out, and is on tour!
I have come late to John Mayall. This track always reminds me of Melissa Maclelland's 'Passenger 24', enough so that I had to confirm hers wasn't a cover of some other Mayall (it's not).
Love John Mayall music, but prefer JJ Cale's original of this tune
"Summertime and the living is easy..."
Can somebody tell me the guitar player on this super tune?
Take a little time and listen to the original song by JJ Cale

32 degrees and raining This song worked just as well.
wow...I thought this was Pop Staples, singing...without his daughters.  
Gorgeous day out there, bright sunlight and glistening dew on the leaves with sharp chirping birds all around, Mayall's Sensitive Kind makes it all the more sweeter    later this afternoon I'll join my little brother as he gets married for the first time (at 56 : )
WOW... Never knew John Mayall did this piece.  FANTASTIC!!!
damn nice
Santana covered this on the album Zebop. 
A good story you have for your grandchildren there!

Caught a show at the Sunset In Sierra Madre back in 1986 of Maggie Mayall And The Cadillacs, an all female blues band. I was standing at the back bar, watching the show, drinking and talking to this tall, thin dude, with long gray hair in a ponytail. We discussed the band, and how good they really were. We talked about some other stuff. He mentioned that it was his wife's band. I was like, no kidding?

When we got around to introducing ourselves, he said "John Mayall. Pleased to meetcha". I just swallowed, took a sip of my drink and smiled...(yes, that John Mayall) 

 


This is the cat that got this white dude into the blues.....back in the late 60's when it wasn't cool at all. I'm still playing harmonica thanks to John.
awesome man
Doing the slow groove coocie in my office chair...
JM's the man...my grandkids don't say: "Who?"

Asked in an interview on his website if it bothered him that while people might have loved his songs, they may not have known his name, he said: "No, it doesn't bother me. What's really nice is when you get a check in the mail."

RIP JJ.
Quality music!  This is new (to me) and much appreciated, a sweet lesson 
Very nice!
John, you've just had too much green. Or Valium. Lou Rawls anyone? Saw JM in 1971-ish in Melbourne (no, not Florida) with Keef Hartley on drums.  Brilliant Blues!!!!
Decent version but check out JJ Cale's live version on the cd JJ Cale Live
very nice!

John's been doing some fine music for a VERY long time.
 

Yep, the real deal...my fondest memories "Turning Point" 1970 or thereabouts
Thought it Ry Cooder for a minute, fooled me again.

Are you "living (10 years) in the past"? lol {#Roflol}
This guy's best work was when he had McVie on bass and the likes of Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor playing guitar for him.  A good spotter of talent, but otherwise...  For many of you, that was before you were born.  Subsequently, not so much.
Kinda JJ Cale sounding, not at all the Bluesbreakers style
my ex loves him.
i have to stay away. 
The sensitive kind, and the living is easy. Fish and jumping' and the cotton is high.

And I had one of the first incarnation of the Bluesbreakers too - JM had a revolving door of people paying their dues before becoming much better known
Like the beat...and the mix!
I like this version-he is a master{#Dancingbanana}

Like it but find myself singing "the thrill is gone" at the same time.
