I took my baby to see a show.
She was telling me she didn't want to go.
I said, "Come on girl, what's the matter with you?"
But I could tell by the smell that she'd had a few.
I said hold on girl don't get too tight,
You started early and we've got all night.
You've got to take it easy, take it slow.
We don't want the whole world to know
About the shape you're in.
Well, my little girl really loves that wine.
Wine will do it to her most everytime.
If it's red or it's white or it's in between,
She can drink more wine than I've ever seen.
I said hold on girl don't get too tight,
You started early and we've got all night.
You've got to take it easy, take it slow.
We don't want the whole world to know
About the shape you're in.
Now I'm not trying to get heavy with you.
I'll mind my own business if you want me to.
But I love you girl, I don't love no one else.
I'm just telling you baby 'cause I've been there myself.
I said hold on girl don't get too tight,
You started early and we've got all night.
You've got to take it easy, take it slow.
We don't want the whole world to know
About the shape you're in.

OK, it's a cool, fun track. To me, it's a 7.  But it's not the Clapton who is the Clapton we came to know and love. Here, he seems to be just playing around. 
Seamless fit/flow from Tom Petty's "Saving Grace"... Thank you very much RP, love riding the sonic wave that you provide!
Crazy! I think this is the first time I have heard this. How did I miss this album in the day?

How come a track can hit the spot so effectively? Is this a Ry Cooder track? 

So many questions. . . 

Anyway. . . it's a 9 right out of the box. Marvellous stuff. 
A great album with some amazing guitar on it-Albert Lee, Ry Cooder and EC. What's not to love?
