Built For Comfort
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics


Some folk built like this, some folk built like that
But the way I'm built, a-don't you call me fat
Because I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

Some folk rip and roar, some folk b'lieve in signs
But if you want me, baby, you got to take your time
Because I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need
I ain't got no diamonds, I ain't got no gold
But I do got love to satisfy your soul
Because I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
But I got everything, all you good women need

I've always felt that Clapton's playing on this album is some of his best.

rick rule

not a Clapton fan, but he killed it here

I love this song. It is different for the version I got off of his Chess box set. The quicker tempo and the horns makes it more funky and lively
