Song title: Raise your hand

(Floyd , Cropper, Isbell) by Eddie Floyd (Stax 208),1967

Raise your hand

If there’s something you need
That you just don’t have
Well just don’t sit there
Feeling bad
Come on now get up
Try and understand
Just raise your hand

Baby here I am
You know I’m standing in line
I wanna give you my love
Please let me try
Come on now get up
Try and understand
Just raise your hand
