"Can't You See" as written by Joseph P. Howell, Randall Garth Ryan, Mark South, Terri E. Robinson, James Brown, Fred A. Jr. Wesley, Sean J. Combs, John H. Starks and Herb Middleton....
I'm gonna take a freight train, down at the station
I don't care where it goes
Gonna climb me a mountain, the highest mountain
Jump off, nobody gonna know

Can't you see oh can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me
Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman lord been doin' to me

I'm gonna find me a hole in the wall
I gonna crawl inside and die
'Cause my lady now, mean ol' woman lord, never told me goodbye

Can't you see oh can't you see
What that woman lord she been doin' to me
Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman lord been doin' to me

I gonna buy me a ticket now, as far as I can
Ain't a-never comin' back
Ride me a Southbound
All the way to Georgia now
Till the train run out of track

Can't you see oh can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me
Can't you see, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me, oh lord

Can't you see oh can't you see
What that woman lord she been doin' to me
Can't you see oh can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me

Can't you see (oh she's such a crazy lady) can't you see
What that woman (what a woman) she been doin' to me
Can't you see (lord I can't stand) oh can't you see
What that woman, oh she been doin' to me

Can't you see (I'm gonna take a freight train) can't you see
(I'm down at the station lord) what that woman (ain't never gonna go back) been doin' to me
Can't you see oh can't you see (gonna ride me the southbound)
(All the way to Georgia) what that woman (till the train run out of track) been doin' to me

    General Commentfor anyone who's been torn apart and walked out on without rhyme or reason... to those who've put everything into something that could've been great.... for those who just didn't get the fair shot they figured was deserved.... this song's for you.

    General CommentI believe this song could be dedicated to any man who has been done wrong by a woman or any man who is stuck with a raging Bi!@% of a woman that just won't leave.

    General CommentFirst southern rock band I've ever heard that used a flute in a song...I think this song made the flute cool to play out loud...or maybe that was Free Bird.
