"Soul Man" as written by and Isaac/porter Hayes....
Comin' to ya on a dusty road
Good lovin' I got a truck load
And when you get it you got something
So don't worry cause I'm coming

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

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

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
Play it Steve!
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

Listen
I was brought up on a side street
I learned how to love before I could eat
I was educated from good stock
When I start lovin' I just can't stop

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

Well grab the rope and I'll pull you in
Give you hope and be your only boyfriend
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
You're a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

    General CommentIt actually 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 Commentvoodoochilde, 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 Commentheard this song when i watched The Blues Brothers movie, it was awsome!

    its 250 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, its dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it!

    Best damn line of any movie ever
