Lyrics below

I met myself a woman down in Memphis
She sat down and talked to me
When I asked her to reply
She looked in my eye and I said
“Woman, I know what you need
You need a man
One who’s long enough to last
And he likes to take it slow and easy
You need a man
One with lovin’ on his mind and
All he wants to do is, baby now, please”

She said, “Whoa, you’re just a little bit crazed
You don’t know what you’re talkin’ about”
I said, “Now, listen little girl
I’ll give a two pound pearl
If you only let me help you find out that
You need a man, one who’s long enough to last
And likes to take it slow and easy
You need a man
One with lovin’ on his mind
And all he wants to do is please”

Now, I was sittin’ in a little speakeasy
When I came across that delta girl
She said, “I hope you understand”
As she opened up the hand
Now she said, “Honey, you can keep the pearl
‘Cause you are the man
One who’s long enough to last
And likes to take it slow and easy
You are the man

One with lovin’ on his mind and
All he wants to do is please”

Everyday seems a little brighter
Every load feels a little lighter
When I know I’m coming to you

When every road seems a little longer
With every mile I grow a little stronger
When I know I’m coming to you

You know I barely got enough money to buy the morning news
I ain’t seen a dollar since I last paid my union dues
But with love you’re never without
And there ain’t no reason to doubt
Oh there ain’t no reason… no reason to doubt

Always get a little lonely when I’m away from you
I end up feeling sorry for the pain I put you through
But with love you’re never without, and there ain’t no reason to doubt
Oh there ain’t no reason, no reason to doubt

Everyday seems a little brighter
Every load feels a little lighter
When I know I’m coming to you

When every road seems a little longer
With every mile I grow a little stronger
When I know I’m coming to you
When I know I’m coming to you
