Good Man, Good Woman
by Bonnie Raitt



(feat. Delbert McClinton)

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Midnight, I'm wound up tight
Slowly comin' down in the daytime
I been lyin' low from work, hangin over from the hurt from you babe
But I'm gonna suffer through the strain, till I get a better thing with you
Darlin, me and you.

So hard to see so far ahead
When I can't seem to drag myself out of bed
Gotta find me a good man, a good man, good man. Yeah

You better stop, think about what you're saying
I was seriously dedicated, in the game of playin'
You made ten thousand promises you couldn't keep
I forgave you when you lied, pleaded and weeped
Put up with your disrespect and neglect
What an experience, I'll never forget.

Till now, everything I did was wrong (I'm sorry, baby)
Today you're free, but we live alone.
Gotta find me a good woman...Good woman...Good woman...Yeah.

It was twelve o'clock in the midnight hour
I heard the door slam, and then the shower
When I got up, you were already gone
I slipped and fell, from the water you left on.

Gotta find a good woman
Gotta find a good man
Gotta find a good woman
Gotta find a good man
