You're A Better Man Than I
The Yardbirds Lyrics


Can you judge a man
By the way he wears his hair?
Can you read his mind
By the clothes that he wears?
Can you see a bad man
By the pattern on his tie?

Well then, mister, you're a better man than I
Yeah, mister, you're a better man than I
Oh, mister, you're a better man than I
Yeah, mister, you're a better man than I

Could you tell a wise man
By the way he speaks or spells?
Is this more important
Than the stories that he tells?
And call a man a fool
If for wealth he doesn't strive?

Well then, mister, you're a better man than I
Yeah, mister, you're a better man than I
Oh, mister, you're a better man than I
Yeah, mister, you're a better man than I

Can you condemn a man
If you're faith he doesn't hold?
Say the colour of his skin
Is the colour of his soul?
Could you say that men
For king and country all must die?

Well, mister, you're a better man than I
Yeah, mister, you're a better man than I
Oh, mister, you're a better man than I
Yeah, mister, you're a better man than I

Yeah, Mister, you're a better man than I (solo)

Can you condemn a man - if your faith he doesn't hold?
Say the color of his skin - is the color of his soul?
Could you say that men - for king and country - all must die?

Well Mister - you're a better man than I
Yeah - Mister you're a better man than I
Oh, Mister, you're a better man than I
Yeah, Mister, you're a better man than I

Maybe it's because I was a teenager during the 60's, but for me, this was the BEST music ever.

Was is and always will be.keep on rocking

@Will Smith Yeah. If you adopt a dress code; a brand on the character you display to the world that may as well be a middle finger to polite society, what can you expect? Worth it or not, it comes with the territory and you get to decide to some extent the person that you tell the world you are. Your race, unlike belonging to a group or subscribing to a philosophy, is not a product of your person.

Don Ingram that’s complete bullshit! Yes hippies were often degraded and abused but ANYONE who was white had it better than black folks in 1966...and even today...

that solo still sends shivers down my spine

I can't stop listening to this song, Beck's solo is amazing. I remember reading somewhere that this was the song that influenced David Gilmour to take up his signature soloing style.

@jeffrey williams Pink Floyd wanted Jeff Beck to join them but we're too scared to ask him.

Good call on the Beck influence on Gilmour. Shine on You Crazy Diamond came to mind.
