"Soul Man" as written by and Isaac/porter Hayes....
Coming to you on a dusty road
Good loving, I got a truck load
And when you get it, you got something
Don't worry, 'cause I'm coming

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man (come on!)
I'm a soul man

And that ain't all

Got what I got the hard way
And I make it better, each and every day
So honey, said don't you fret
'Cause you ain't seen nothing yet

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man, oh

I was brought up on a side street, yes mam
I learned how to love before I could eat
I was educated at woodstock
When I start loving, oh I can't stop

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man (yeah!)
I'm a soul man

Just grab the rope and I'll pull you in
Give you hope and be your only boyfriend
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah!)

I'm talking about a soul man
I'm a soul man
(And you're a) soul man
Soul man (oh lord)
Soul man
(I'm a) soul man
(And you're a) soul man
(And you're a) soul man

    General CommentMissed an entire verse there. Goes as follows:

    I was brought up on a side street
    I learned how to love before I could eat
    I was educated at Woodstock
    When I start loving, whoa I can't stop

    General CommentThe third & fourth line in the" missed verse" are suppose to be...

    I was educated, from good stock (not Woodstock)
    When I start loving, I just can't stop

    General Commentvoodoochilde and I discussed this on the Blues Brothers version.

    "the Blues Brothers version does not say "Woodstock", however the popular Sam & Dave version does. the original writer, (who wrote it for Same & Dave), actually went to a school named Woodstock, but Jake Blues didn't, so Belushi just sings it his way."

    General CommentI've always wondered about that Woodstock bit in this song because it was a hit in 1967 - two years before Woodstock, the festival, happened in August 1969.
