When A Man Loves A Woman
Percy Sledge Lyrics

When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothing else
He'd change the world
For the good thing he's found
If she's bad, he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way it ought to be

Well, this man loves you, woman
I gave you everything I had
Trying to hold on to your heartless love
Baby, please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Loving eyes can't ever see

When a man loves a woman
He can do her no wrong
He can never want some other girl

Yes, when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
'Cause baby, baby, you're my world

When a man loves a woman

Darn Right

It's really a shame how this man - arguably the greatest natural tenor soul balladeer of all time - was so underrated by his peers. No Grammy (not even a nomination) no Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The only known singer to attend his funeral was Dorothy Moore. RIP Percy. You will always be a legend to your fans.

Percy doesn't need the recognition from the "industry" his fans and Louisiana brethren will keep him alive

Bayoko Ebi

Is due to his skin color too bad

I will tell u something else I also enjoy Michael Bolton, but I was not impressed with him useing Percy Sledge song, to make a name for himself. This privilege when u are white, he then went no to beat Aaron Neville, for male vocalist of the year. That pissed me off, because I love Aaron's music.

David I love yr commitment, but dont confuss singing and acting with the real thing. These are soul people, my people, but trust me, we know how to lay it on. Hahahha. Whaen all said and done Percy is one of my favorite all time singers, I absolutely love his music.
