May 28th – Percy Sledge – “When a man loves a woman”

In 1966, #PercySledge started a two week run at No. 1 in the US singles chart with “When a man loves a woman”.  Before the recording session the song had no title or lyrics.  So hum along and don’t worry about the words!  #singing;#feelgood

When a man loves a woman

28-5 Percy Sledge

When A Man Loves A Woman by Percy Sledge
When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothing else
He’ll trade the world
For the good thing he’s found
If she’s bad he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Tryin’ to hold on to what he needs
He’d give up all his comfort
Sleep out in the rain
If she said that’s the way it ought to beWell, this man loves a woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin’ to hold on to your precious love
Baby, please don’t treat me badWhen a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He’s the last one to know
Lovin’ eyes can’t ever see

When a man loves a woman
He can do no wrong
He can never own some other girl
Yes when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
‘Cause baby, baby, baby, you’re my world

When a man loves a woman…..
