About That's the Way I Feel About Cha

"That's the Way I Feel About Cha" is a 1972 single co-written, produced and recorded by American rhythm and blues/soul music performer, Bobby Womack, and also became the musician's first crossover Top 40 single on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 27. On the US Billboard R&B chart it peaked at number two, starting a four-year run of R&B hits for Womack during that decade. The single, co-written by Womack, John Grisby and Joe Hicks, was the second release off Womack's Communication album. It put Womack on the musical map as a solo artist, after he started his career as lead singer of the family musical group The Valentinos, and a period where he achieved success as a sideman for soul acts such as Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett, and rock singers such as Janis Joplin and Sly Stone. The song would inspire a few cover versions, with the most notable ones coming from Aretha Franklin from her album "Hey Now Hey (The Other Side of the Sky)" (1973), and also from the blues singer O. V. Wright.

Huh, you know life is funny when you look at it
Everybody wants love
But everybody's afraid of love
You know, I'm a true believer
 
If you get anything out of life
You got to put up with the toil and strife
Ooh You're pushin' my love
A little bit too far
I don't think you know
I don't think you know how blest you are
And your friend Annie May tell you all she see
Have you, ever thought she was tryin' to get close to me
 
Think it over, think it over, girl, think it over
That's the way I feel about cha
That's the way I feel about cha
I don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind
 
I know you've been hurt and so have many others too
But that's the sacrifice that life put you thru
Put you thru, put you thru
Trust in me, my dear, have no fear
You don't know but God might have sent me here, sent me here
 
Think it over, think it over, girl, think it over
That's the way I feel about cha
(Any of us can leave for a long adventure)
That's the way I feel about cha
 
Don't take my love as a sign of weakness
Check into the situation, girl
Dig a little deeper
 
Think it over, think it over, girl, think it over
That's the way I feel about cha
That's the way I feel about cha
