Ole Man Trouble
Otis Redding Lyrics

Ole man trouble leave me alone
Go find you someone else to pick on
I live my live and now you see now
Ole man trouble
Please stay away from me, oh now

Ooo oh yeah,

Oh I look like I'm down in my luck
Please send faith to just help pick me up
I've lived this way for so many years, ah ah
Ole man trouble
Please wash away all my fears, oh now
God almighty, help me

Sometime I get I get a little worried
Ole man trouble

Stay away from me
Ole man trouble, ole man trouble, oh na, oh na na na
Stay away, stay away
You cause nothing but trouble
Just stay away, stay away
Just stay away, nothin' nothin' nothin' but trouble
Please, old man trouble, leave me alone

This is pure soul man, how can you not love this song.


+Kenneth Moore This is pure soul. It can't get any better than this. The musicians are playing what they feel. Thats what the blues is all about.

Loring Glover

+Kenneth Moore Simply the BEST. Otis has touched my heart again and again. Man what a loss!

I mostly listen to a lot of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, etc. Recently, I've been listening to Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominoes and The Who. I came across Otis Blue, and I absolutely love this song. I don't really listen to soul, but I've always appreciated it (especially the classic stuff), but this just sounds amazing. I love the slow-pace, the guitar melody, and Otis' fantastic vocals. I'm buying this album.


Music finds us, always!

@LetsPlayClassicGames oh yeah...Duane Allman on Hey Jude!!!


Marknetick if you love those bands and dig this, check out Hey Jude by Wilson Pickett. Duane Allman plays an epic guitar solo on it, Clapton heard it and had to find out who it was, if it wasn't for that song Derek and The Dominoes may have never existed.


Amazing sidemen: Steve Cropper on guitar; Donald Dunn on bass; Isaac Hayes on keys, Al Jackson Jr. on the drums, Wayne Jackson & Gene Miller on trumpets, Andrew Love on tenor sax, Fred Newman on baritone sax.

I was never the same after hearing this song.
