        "Soul Man"
        (written by Isaac Hayes - David Porter)
        (duet with Sam Moore)


        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, I'm a soul man

        Got what I got, the hard way
        and I'll make better, each and every day
        .... honey, hey, don't you fret
        'cause you ain't seen nothing yet

        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man (hey, Lou!)
        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man (look!)

        I was brought up, on a side street
        learned how to love, before I could eat
        Hey, I was educated, from good, good stock
        when I start loving, oh, I just can't stop

        I'm a soul man, baby, I'm a soul man
        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man

        Grab the rope, and I'll pull you in
        give you hope, and be your funky boyfriend
        Ya, ya, ya, ya!

        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man
        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man
        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man
        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man
        I'm a soul man, I'm a soul man
        ...
