I just can't work no longer
I've got to see my woman right now
And we ain't getting any younger
I've got to get to her love somehow

When clouds come, it's raining
The sun comes and shines
Lord, I ain't complaining
I've done wrong and
I'm serving my time

Now if there's any good in me
I'll bring it out so that you might see
That I'm just another lonely man
Who wants to stop my sin
Let all over begin

I just can't work no longer
I've got to see my woman right now
And we ain't getting any younger
I've got to get to her love somehow

This woman on the other side
She's my joy and all of my pride
Though I hurt her so constantly
My woman love can have faith in me

But how long can a good thing last
And I vow never to hurt in the past
Will she be there, waiting for me
My time is up and I'm finally free

I just can't work no longer
I've got to see my woman right now
And we ain't getting any younger
I've got to get to her love somehow

Sorry, but I like music that reaches into my twisted and tormented soul and rips my insides out and stomps on them.  This is whimpy.

wow - I remember playing this with our club band back in Chicago in the 90's. totally forgot about this tune - was a big time crowd pleaser.
while i can definitely support the sentiment of this song, the song itself is unlistenable.

He's one of the most exciting musicians I've ever had the fortune of seeing live.  I have not heard much from him recently...anyone know what he's up to?
Yay!!!
A 10? Please explain your personal relationship with the band!

Maybe a 7......the longer it goes I am thinking maybe a 6 for me...{#Smile}
I love Mr. Dave.  A great song from a great album!  :-)
