Soul Man
The Blues Brothers Lyrics


Comin' to ya on a dusty road
Good lovin' I got a truck load
And when you get it you got something
So 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 it better each and every day
So honey don't you fret
'Cause you ain't seen nothing yet

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
Play it Steve!
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

Listen
I was brought up on a side street
I learned how to love before I could eat
I was educated from good stock
When I start lovin' I just can't stop

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

Well grab the rope and I'll pull you in
Give you hope and be your only boyfriend
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
You're a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

- Steve Cropper (Guitar left) wrote this song among many others you would know, he was in the Stax Records house band that backed Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, etc. He also was in Booker T & The MG's (all these bands were intertwined). Look him up, you'll be amazed at his story.
- Matt "Guitar" Murphy (Guitar right) - Howlin Wolf, Memphis Slim.
- Donald "Duck" Dunn (Bass) - Booker T, also Stax, Eric Clapton during 80's (Money & Cigarettes album +).
- Paul Schaeffer - Letterman Tonight Show band leader, many other bands (ie Honeydrippers w/ Robert Plant)
- Alan Rubin, "Blue" Lou Marini, and Tom "Bones" Malone - horns, these guys are jazz background with crazy resumes (Juliard, Zappa, Blood Sweat & Tears, Sinatra, Duke Ellington, etc)
- Steve Jordan (Drums) - also Letterman Band, Keith Richards solo albums, John Mayer

It's really insane and amazing how they assembled this band initially for an SNL skit. I don't know, but have to believe that they at least had hoped to create a real band out of it. This lineup is just ridiculous otherwise. Good wiki page covers it here

There's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark out, and we're wearing sunglasses. HIT IT!

@Bob Loza actually, it's "dry white toast." And, "four fried chickens and a coke"

Arkroyd's dancing was so charismatic even if it's meant to be a goofy dance. The amount of talent in this video is unbelievable
