Lyrics

THE BEST I CAN GET

I got peanut butter in my harmonica
I got a door without no hole
But all your good lovin? ? Baby, don?t you know
Is worth it?s weight in gold

I been kicked on down in Memphis
But it?s known throughout the South
All them good things you been sayin? about me baby
I got ?em word of mouth

Oh baby, don?t take your love away
Please tell me ? Tell me that you?re gonna stay
Lord, every night, every night, I hope and pray
Oh baby, don?t take your love away
Every night, every night - I hope and praOh baby, don?t take your love away
I don?t care what folks been tellin? me
I don?t listen to a single word
?Cause when you get up close ? Baby, don?t you know
I just forget what I heard

Hard times is all around us
It don?t bother me a bit
?Cause what I got right now ? Darlin? don?t you know
Is the best I can get

Oh baby, don?t take your love away
Please tell me ? Tell me that you?re gonna stay
Lord, every night, every night, I hope and pray
Oh baby, don?t take your love away

I got peanut butter in my harmonica
I got a door without no hole
But all your good lovin? ? Baby, don?t you know
Is worth it?s weight in gold

I been kicked on down in Memphis
But it?s known throughout the South
All them good things you been sayin? about me baby
I got ?em word of mouth

Oh baby, don?t take your love away
Please tell me ? Tell me that you?re gonna stay
Lord, every night, every night, I hope and pray
Oh baby, don?t take your love away
