# Title Duration
1 Play Together ‘Til the End of Time (F. Wilson)
In a world filled with so much sorrow
Every one is thinking of himself
So little time is spent on planning for tomorrow
No one really seems to care
It's so easy to be lost in a land
Where no one wants to help you, no one understands
But we'll hold hands together
And we'll make our plans together
Till the end of time, darling
Till the end of time, my sweet darling
By your side I'll always be
Though things be good or bad
From now until eternity
I'll do anything I can
To make you happy when you're feeling blue
Should you ever have to leave me, I'll be waiting for you
Then we'll hold hands forever
And we'll make our plans together
Till the end of time, darling
Till the end of time, my sweet darling
I'll make you happy when you're feeling blue
Should you ever have to leave me, I'll be waiting for you
Then we'll hold hands together
Darling for ever and ever, oh
Till the end of time, oh darling
Till the end of time, my sweet darling
Till the end of time, I know I'm gonna love you for ever and ever
Oh darling, oh darling for ever and ever

2 Play Take This Hurt Off Me (D. Covay, R. Miller)
Chorus:
Come back and take this hurt off me
Baby, come back and take this hurt off me
I'm too young to be in misery
Baby, come back and take this hurt off me
I've been waiting at the bus station
'Cause that's where you left me standing
I got my clothes in a twenty-five cent locker
And hear you till that Greyhound bring you back again
(Chorus)
Well, I knocked on my mother's door
She said "Stevie, come on in.
You don't have to say a mumbling word,
I know your woman left you again."
Come back and take this hurt off me
Baby, come back and take this hurt off me
Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby
What kind of love could this be?
Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby,
I don't know what you've got
I gotta - I gotta - I gotta - Yes I have...
(Chorus twice)
Yeah ....
02:48
3 Play Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out (Cox)
Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spent all my money, didn't have a care
Taking all my friends out for a mighty good ride
Bootleg liquors, champagne and wine
Then I began to fall so low
didn't have a penny and no place to go
If i ever lay my hand on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it till the eagle grins
Nobody loves you when you are down and out
In your pocket you ain't got one penny
And your friends, you don't have any
Well just as soon as you've get back on your feet again
Here they all come the same old year long lost friends
I thought that it's mighty strange but without a doubt
For nobody wants you, I got to tell ya
Nobody needs you
Nobody loves you when you're down and out.
(I got to tell you one more time)
03:55
4 Play Midnight Special (Trad., Arr. S. Winwood)
Get your ticket at the station, get your dinner on board
Well you know I have to leave you but I don't wanna go
Let the Midnight Special shine its light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe
If you ever go to Houston, oh you better walk right
Well you better not stagger and you better not fight
'Cause the sheriff will arrest you and he'll carry you down
You can bet your bottom dollar, you're penitentiary bound
Wake up early in the morning, hear the ding dong ring
Go walkin' to the table, see the same damn (thing)
Let the Midnight Special shine its light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe
When you wake up in the morning, hear the rooster crow
Don't wanna work but I got to go
Don't wanna leave my baby, leave her all alone
'Cause when I get back, she may be gone
Get your ticket at the station, get your dinner on board
Well you know I have to leave you but I don't wanna go
Let the Midnight Special shine its light on me
The Midnight Special to Santa Fe
02:17
5 Play When A Man Loves A Woman (C. Lewis, A. Wright)
When a man loves a woman, can't keep his mind on nothing else
He'd change the world for the good things he's found
If she is 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
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all of his comforts and sleep out in the rain
If she says that's the way it ought to be
Well this man loves you, woman
Give you everything I can
Trying to hold on to your high class love
Baby, please don't treat me bad
When a man loves a woman, deep down in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool, he's the last one to know
Loving eyes can never see
When a man loves a woman, she can do no wrong
She can never look another man
When a man loves a woman, hey hey I know exactly how he feels
'Cause baby baby you are my girl
When a man loves a woman
03:11
6 Play When I Come Home (S. Winwood, J. Edwards)
I gave you my heart right from the start, yeah yeah
I gave you my heart now you tear it apart
You wrote me a letter - you found someone better
Better than me, this I can't believe
When I come home, tell me all about it
When I come home, tell me all about it
I work all day earning my pay, yeah yeah
I work all night to make you feel alright
When I come home, tell me all about it
When I come home, tell me all about it
02:00

I got a woman mean as she can be
Yeah I got a woman mean as she can be

14 Play Blues In F (Instrumental) (S. Winwood) 03:28
15 Play I’m A Man (S. Winwood, J. Miller)
Well, my pad is very messy and there's whiskers on my chin
And I'm all hung up on music, and I always play to win
I ain't got no time for lovin' 'cause my time is all used up
Just sittin' 'round creatin' all that groovy kind of stuff

Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so

Well, if I had my choice of matter I would rather be with cats
All engrossed in mental chatter showin' where our minds are at,
And relating to each other just how strong our will can be
In resisting all involvments with each groovy chick we see

Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so

I've got to keep my image while suspended on a throne
That looks out upon a kingdom filled with people all unknown
Who imagine I'm not human and my heart is made of stone
And I've never had no problems and my toliet's trimmed with gold

Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
Well, I'm a man, yes I am, and I can't help but love you so
