Well, I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Said I got a woman, way over town
Good to me, oh yeah
She gives me money when I'm in need
Yeah, she's a kind of friend indeed
I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah

She saves her lovin', early in the mornin'
Just for me, oh yeah
She saves her lovin', early in the mornin'
Just for me, oh yeah
She saves her lovin', just for me
Ah, she, loves me, so tenderly
I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah

She's there to love me
Both day and night
Never grumbles or fusses
Always treats me right
Never runnin' in the streets
Leavin' me alone
She knows a woman's place
Is right there, now, in her home

I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Say I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Oh, she's my baby, don't you understand
Yeah, I'm her lovin' man, now
I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Well, don't you know she's all right
Well, don't you know she's all right
She's all right, she's all right

Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »
