"Man Of The World" as written by and Peter Green....
Shall I tell you about my life
They say I'm a man of the world
I've flown across every tide
And I've seen lots of pretty girls

I guess I've got everything I need
I wouldn't ask for more
And there's no one I'd rather be
But I just wish that I'd never been born

And I need a good woman
to make me feel like a good man should
I don't say I'm a good man
Oh, but I would be if I could

I could tell you about my life
And keep you amused I'm sure
About all the times I've cried
And how I don't want to be sad anymore
And how I wish I was in love

    General CommentThis song is my life. Except I'm a woman who is alone. This line really sums the song up so beautifully:

    "how I wish I was in love."

    Such a simple end to a simple beginning.

    General CommentSuch a heartfelt song, Green really nails it, he's been around the world and bagged more than his share but has no one to go home to at the end of the day.

    General CommentIs Peter Green dead or alive? His wiki page said that he's still alive. :/
