Need a new love - I'm ready
Want my time - I'm wheelin' yeah
Cus I'm the one who's gonna show when there's nobody
I'll be your man - Yeah I'll be your man
Times gets tough, oh they get tougher
Hold on to me - I got you darling
Cus I'm the one who's gonna show when there's nobody
I'll be your man (x2)
River is deep - Yeah I'm swimming
Mountain is high - I'm gonna climb, climb, climb
Yeah I'm the one who's gonna show when there's nobody
I'll be your man (x4 )
Alright!

    General CommentNo comments? This song is one of my favorites. The meaning is pretty straightforward, or at least to me it is. He's saying that he'll love this girl and will always do anything for her no matter the circumstances. Cool song and The Black Keys have such a sweet style.

    General CommentIs it really "Want my time - I'm wheelin' yeah" ? Sounds like "I'm willin' yeah" would be correct.

    General CommentYeah seriously, this song needs tons of comments.
    The song meaning is pretty straightforward- he'll be there for this girl, no matter what, even when nobody else is.
    I love how this song sounds old- like it was recorded 50 years ago. It's a little motown-sounding.
