  1. Rainy Night In Georgia (featuring Chris Botti)

    Rainy Night In Georgia (featuring Chris Botti)

    Hoverin’ by my suitcase, tryin’ to find a warm place to spend the night
    Heavy rain fallin’, seems I hear your voice callin’ “It’s all right.”
    A rainy night in Georgia, a rainy night in Georgia
    It seems like it’s rainin’ all over the world
    I feel like it’s rainin’ all over the world

    Neon signs a-flashin’, taxi cabs and buses passin’ through the night
    A distant moanin’ of a train seems to play a sad refrain to the night
    A rainy night in Georgia, such a rainy night in Georgia
    Lord, I believe it’s rainin’ all over the world
    I feel like it’s rainin’ all over the world

    How many times I wondered
    It still comes out the same
    No matter how you look at it or think of it
    It’s life and you just got to play the game

    I find me a place in a box car, so I take my guitar to pass some time
    Late at night when it’s hard to rest I hold your picture to my chest and I feel fine
    But it’s a rainy night in Georgia, baby, it’s a rainy night in Georgia I
    feel it’s rainin’ all over the world, kinda lonely now And it’s rainin’ all over the
    world

    Oh, have you ever been lonely, people?
    And you feel that it was rainin’ all over this man’s world
    You’re talking ’bout rainin’, rainin’, rainin’, rainin’, rainin’, rainin’, rainin’,
    rainin’, rainin’ rainin’, rainin’, rainin’

  2. Ain’t No Sunshine

    Ain’t No Sunshine

    Ain`t no sunshine when she’s gone
    Only darkness everyday
    Ain`t no sunshine when she’s gone
    And she’s always gone too long
    Anytime she goes away

    I wonder this time where she`s gone
    I wonder if she`s gone to stay
    Cause ain`t no sunshine when she`s gone
    And this house just ain`t no home, anytime she goes away

    I know, I know, I know,
    I know, I know, I know,
    I know, I know, I know,
    I know, I know, I know,
    I know, I know, I know,
    I know, I know

    Hey I won`t leave that young thing alone
    Ain`t no sunshine when she`s gone
    Only darkness every day

    Cause ain`t no sunshine when she`s gone
    And she’s always gone too long
    Anytime she goes away

    I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know, I know
    I know, I know

    Hey I won’t leave that young thing alone
    Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
    Only darkness every day

    Cause ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
    This house just ain’t no home,
    Anytime she goes away
    Anytime she goes away
    Anytime she goes away

  3. (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay

    (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay

    Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
    I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come
    Watching the ships roll in
    And then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah

    I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Wastin’ time

    I left my home in Georgia
    Headed for the ‘Frisco bay
    ‘Cause I’ve had nothing to live for
    And look like nothin’s gonna come my way

    So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Ooo, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Wastin’ time

    Look like nothing’s gonna change
    Everything still remains the same
    I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
    So I guess I’ll remain the same, yes

    Sittin’ here resting my bones
    And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
    It’s two thousand miles I roamed
    Just to make this dock my home

    Now, I’m just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
    Watching the tide roll away
    Oooo-wee, sittin’ on the dock of the bay
    Wastin’ time

    (whistle)

  4. Stand By Me

    Stand By Me

    When the night has come and the land, it is dark
    And the moon is the only light that we see
    No, I won’t be afraid, no, I won’t be afraid
    Just as long, just as long as you stand, stand by me

    If the sky, we look upon should tumble and fall
    And the mountains should crumble into the sea
    I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no, and I won’t shed a tear
    Just as long, just as long as you stand, stand by me

    So darlin’, darlin’, stand, stand by me
    Oh, stand by me, oh, my darlin’, please stand by me

    If the sky, we look upon should tumble and fall
    And the mountains should crumble into the sea
    I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no, I won’t shed a tear
    Just as long, just as long as you stand, stand by me

    So darlin’, darlin’, stand, stand by me
    Oh, stand by me, oh, please stand by me
    Whenever I’m in trouble won’t you stand, stand by me?
    Oh, stand by me, oh darlin’, please stand by me

  6. Respect Yourself (featuring Mavis Staples)

    Respect Yourself (featuring Mavis Staples)

    If you disrespect anybody that you run in to
    How in the world do you think anybody’s s’posed to respect you
    If you don’t give a heck ’bout the man with the bible in his hand
    Just get out the way, and let the gentleman do his thing
    You the kind of gentleman that want everything your way
    Take the sheet off your face, boy, it’s a brand new day

    Respect yourself, respect yourself
    If you don’t respect yourself
    Ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot, na na na na
    Respect yourself, respect yourself

    If you’re walking ’round think’n that the world owes you something cause
    You’re here you goin’ out the world backwards like you did when you
    Put your hand on your mouth when you cough, that’ll help the solution
    Oh, you cuss around women and you don’t even know their names and you
    Dumb enough to think that’ll make you a big ol man

  7. When A Man Loves A Woman

    When A Man Loves A Woman

    If you want something to play with
    Go and find yourself a toy
    Baby my time is too expensive
    And I’m not a little boy

    If you are serious
    Don’t play with my heart
    It makes me furious
    But if you want me to love you
    Then a baby I will, girl you know that I will

    Tell it like it is
    Don’t be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
    But I know deep down inside me
    I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

    Life is too short to have sorrow
    You may be here today and gone tomorrow
    You might as well get what you want
    So go on and live, baby go on and live

    Tell it like it is
    I’m nothing to play with
    Go and find yourself a toy
    But I… Tell it like it is
    My time is too expensive and I’m not your little boy

  8. Let’s Stay Together (featuring Chaka Khan)

    Let’s Stay Together (featuring Chaka Khan)

    I, I’m so in love with you
    Whatever you want to do
    Is all right with me
    you make me feel so brand new
    And I want to spend my whole life with you

    Since, baby since we’ve been together
    Loving you forever
    Is what I need
    Let me be the one you come running to
    I’ll never be untrue

    Let’s, let’s stay together
    Lovin’ you whether, whether
    Times are good or bad, happy or sad

    Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

    Why, why some people break up
    Then turn around and make up
    I just can’t see
    You’d never do that to me (would you, baby)
    Staying around you is all I see
    (Here’s what I want us to do)

    [Repeat to fade:]
    Let’s, we oughta stay together
    Loving you whether, whether
    Times are good or bad, happy or sad

  9. It’s All Right

    It’s All Right

    Say it's all right, say it's all right
    Say it's all right, have a good time
    'Cause it's all right, it's all right
    
    We're gonna move it slow
    When the lights are low
    When you move it slow, it sounds like more
    And it's all right, it's all right
    
    Now listen to the beat
    You kinda pat your feet
    'Cause you got soul and everybody knows
    That it's all right, it's all right
    
    When you wake up early in the mornin'
    Feelin' sad like so many of us do
    Harm a little soul, make life your goal
    And surely something gotta come to you
    
    And say it's all right, say it's all right
    It's all right, have a good time
    'Cause it's all right, it's all right
    
    Now everybody clap your hands
    And give yourself a chance
    'Cause you got soul and everybody knows
    That it's all right, it's all right
    
    Someday I'll find me a woman
    Who will love and treat me real nice
    And my woes got to go and my love she will know
    From morning, noon and night
    
    And she's gotta say that it's all right, say it's all right
    Say it's all right, have a good time
    'Cause its alright, it's all right
    
    Now come on and clap your hands
    And give yourself a chance
    'Cause you got soul and everybody knows
    That it's all right, it's all right
    
    Now come on and clap your hands
    And give yourself a chance
    You got soul and everybody knows
    That it's all right
  10. People Get Ready (featuring David Sanborn and Art Neville)

    People Get Ready (featuring David Sanborn and Art Neville)

    People get ready
    There’s a train coming
    Picking up passengers
    From coast to coast
    Faith is the key
    Open the doors and board ’em
    There’s room for all
    If you’ll just love the Lord

    There ain’t no room
    For the hopeless sinner
    Who would hurt all mankind
    Just to save his own
    Have pity on those
    Whose chances grow thinner
    There’s no hiding place
    Around the kingdon’s throne

    Chorus
    People get ready
    There’s a train coming
    Don’t need no ticket
    You just get on board
    Faith is the key
    Open the doors and board ’em
    Don’t need no ticket
    You just thank the Lord

  11. My Girl

    My Girl

    I’ve got sunshine
    On a cloudy day.
    When it’s cold outside,
    I’ve got the month of May.

    Well, I guess you’ll say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl. (My girl, my girl)
    Talkin’ ’bout my girl. (My girl)

    I’ve got so much honey
    The bees envy me.
    I’ve got a sweeter songThan the birds in the trees.

    Well, I guess you’ll say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl. (My girl, my girl)
    Talkin’ ’bout my girl. (My girl)

    Ooooh, Hoooo.

    Hey, hey, hey.
    Hey, hey, hey.

    I don’t need no money,
    Fortune or fame.
    I’ve got all the riches, baby,
    One man can claim.

    Well, I guess you’ll say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl. (My girl, my girl)
    Talkin’ ’bout my girl. (My girl)

    Talkin’ bout my girl.
    I’ve got sushine on cloudy day
    With my girl.

  12. Ain’t That Peculiar

    Ain’t That Peculiar

    You do me wrong
    But I’m still crazy about you
    Stay away too long
    And I can’t do without you

    Every chance you get
    You seem to just hurt me more and more

    But each hurt just makes my love go stronger
    Stronger than before

    I know flowers grow from rain
    But how can love grow from pain

    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Peculiarity
    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Peculiar as it can be

    You tell me lies
    It should be obvious to me
    But I’m so much in love with you, baby
    That I don’t want to see

    That the things you do and say
    Are designed to make me blue
    But it’s a doggone shame my love for you
    Makes all your lies seem true

    But if the truth makes love last longer
    Why do lies make my love stronger?

    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Peculiarity
    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Peculiar as it can be

    I cried so much just as like a child
    That’s lost it’s toy
    Baby, baby, you think these tears I cry
    Are tears of joy

    A child can cry so much
    And then you do everything they say
    No, no, no, like a child my tears don’t help me
    To get my way

    I know love can last through years
    But how can love last through tears?

    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Peculiarity
    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Peculiar as it can be

    I don’t understand
    Why you made me cry so much?
    I don’t understand
    Why you lie so much?

    And made me cry tears of pain
    You made me cry for all that rain
    I don’t understand
    Don’t understand sometimes

    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?
    Peculiar as it can be

    Ain’t that peculiar?
    Peculiarity
    Ain’t that peculiar, baby?

  13. A Change Is Gonna Come

    A Change Is Gonna Come

    I was born by the river
    In a little tent
    And just like the river
    I’ve been running ever since

    It’s been a long
    A long time coming
    But I know a change gonna come
    Oh, yes it will

    It’s been too hard living
    But I’m afraid to die
    ‘Cause I don’t know
    What’s up there beyond the sky

    It’s been a long
    A long time coming
    But I know a change gonna come
    Oh, yes it will

    When I go to my brother, my brother, my brother
    And I say, Brother, help me please?
    But he winds up knockin’ me
    Right down on my, on the knees

    And there been times that I thought
    I couldn’t last for long
    But now I think
    I’m able to carry on

    It’s been a long
    A long, long time coming
    Well, I know, I know change gonna come
    Oh, yes it will

    It’s been a long
    It’s been a long, long time coming
    Well, I know, I know, I know change gonna come
    Oh, yes it will
