Hard To Handle
The Black Crowes Lyrics


Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on
You gotta' come back for more

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yes I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yes I am

Yeah
Hard to handle now
Oh baby

Baby, here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I've got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You got to come a-runnin' back for more

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yes I am

Hard
Hard to handle now
Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Boys will come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now, yes I am

Yeah
So hard to handle now
Oh yeah

Baby
Good lovin'
Baby, baby
Ohh, good lovin'
I need good lovin'
I got to have it, oh yeah
Yeah
So hard to handle, now, yeah

One of the all-time greatest cover versions. The Big-O himself would be proud of what The Black Crowes did with his great song.

Hming bawihi

I know this song way before Courtney but still come back to this because of her...

Matt Grant

Nah, this shit sucks.

EnoVarma

Nah. This version is a hamburger: Otis Redding's is a juicy steak.

Bust_your bubble

I only herd this one my whole life but I didn’t grow up during this peroid of music I’m 18

Matt Bingham

@Gisel Calderon you realize that the song was lipsynced, correct? all those shows are rigged and fake.

I just love this band. I just feel instant happiness when I listen to them.

Seeing them LIVE in 5 hours. Sydney, Australia. 14/11/22. EDIT: Its the next day. My son and I got to the venue 2hrs early and staked our place at the front row. At the end of the show Rich flicked his pick into the crowd and my boy shot his hand up and caught it clean. As we left the venue we noticed the tiny laneway at the back of the venue and tried our luck walking down there to see what we could see. There were only about 5 other people there waiting for the band to come out. When Chris came out (about an hour later) he walked up to us and hung out for about 10min chatting with us. Glass of wine in hand and wearing a paisley shirt. He was so down to earth and chilled out it blew my mind. He recognized the Black Crowes Tshirt I was wearing from the '92 concert and shook my hand. Got a great photo of the 3 of us. Chris...If you're reading this you made my year, mate.

One of my favorite songs. It still rocks just as hard as when it first dropped 💯❤️
