"I Got A Woman" as written by Renald Richard and Ray Charles....
Well, I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Said I got a woman, way over town
Good to me, oh yeah
She gives me money when I'm in need
Yeah, she's a kind of friend indeed
I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah

She saves her lovin', early in the mornin'
Just for me, oh yeah
She saves her lovin', early in the mornin'
Just for me, oh yeah
She saves her lovin', just for me
Ah, she, loves me, so tenderly
I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah

She's there to love me
Both day and night
Never grumbles or fusses
Always treats me right
Never runnin' in the streets
Leavin' me alone
She knows a woman's place
Is right there, now, in her home

I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Say I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Oh, she's my baby, don't you understand
Yeah, I'm her lovin' man, now
I got a woman, way over town
That's good to me, oh yeah
Well, don't you know she's all right
Well, don't you know she's all right
She's all right, she's all right

    General Commenthmm, how do you change these ones placed?

    Anyway, I agree with the rest, its about his love affair far away and his love at home.

    General CommentI'm doing a report on how women are portrayed negatively in songs, but so far (other than in rap), this is the only song that stuck out in my mind...anyone have any other suggestions possibly?
