Song title: Sweet soul music

(Otis Reding, Arthur Conley) by Otis Reding (Conley - Atco 6463), 1967

Sweet soul music

Do you like good music ?
Sweet soul music ?
how must I strike her
Oh yeah

Spotlight out on this ring
sing and laugh-laugh-laugh
sing and laugh-laugh-laugh
Oh yeah

Spotlight on the Big Man
don’t he look great ?
He lost a lot of weight
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Spotlight on you now
you sure look fine
moving down the line
come on
yeah yeah

Spotlight on me now
I sure look good
feeling so fine now
that’s right
Oh yeah

Spotlight on the band now
sure rocking fine you
working on that line you
come on come on
yeah yeah

Notes: Often included in the Detroit Medley by Bruce in the RIver/TOL tours.
