(Redding, Cropper, Robinson)

#85 pop / #15 r&b
 

I've been missing you for so many days
I keep wanting you, lord, in so many ways
I can't get you off of my mind 
But true love is so hard to find 

I want yet another day
Ooh, I need another day
Darling, let me have another day 
And I can be anything that you want me to be, 
now, now, ooh

The sweet things you used to do to me
Sometimes, well, you used to say them to me
I can't forget those lovely days, now
But this is the price I'm about to pay 

Ooh I want another day, lord
You can let me have just one more day, yeah
Ooh I need one more day, yeah, lord
And I will do anything that you want me to do, 
now, ooh my, ooh my, lord

I will do anything that you want me to do, now
Say anything that you want me to say, yeah, yeah
Buy you anything you want me to buy
And I can cherish you till the day I die 

If you let me have another day
Please let me have one more day
Ooh I want just one more day, lord 
And I can be everything that you want me to be

Ooh, Ooh now, ooh
Just one more day, now no
You can let me have just another day, now 
Please I want this day
And the day after and the day after 
And I want all the days 
I want all the days 
And I want you here
And I want you here by my side 
And I don't want you do leave me

2 - IT'S GROWING
(Robinson & Moore)
 

Like a snowball rolling down that side
Of that snow covered hill
Man, it's growing
Like that size of the fish
That man claimed he broke his reel
Man, it's growing
Like the rosebud that's bloomin', man
In the warning of the sun
It's growing
Like the tale by time it's been told
Man, by more than one
Ooh it's growing

But every day it grows a little more
Than it was the day before, yeah
My love for you, it grows anf grows
Hey, how it grows and grows
But where it's gonna stop
I feel that nobody knows, man
I said it grows and grows
Man, a little bit stronger
It grow and grows
A little bit more every day
It keeps on growing

Like the need of a guy to see his girl
When she's gone away
Man, it's growin'
Like the sadness in his heart
When he knows that she's gone to stay
Man, it's growing

I say every day it grows and grows
A little more than it was before
My love for you, it grows and grows
Hey, how it grows and grows
But how it's gonna stop
I feel, yeah
Now how it's going to stop
I feel that nobody knows, man
Nobody knows how it grows and grows
Nobody knows, man, it grows and grows...

3 - CIGARETTES AND COFFEE
(Thomas, Butler & Walker)
 

It's early in the morning
About a quarter till three
I'm sittin' here talkin' with my baby
Over cigarettes and coffee, now
And to tell you that
Darling I've been so satisfied
Honey since I met you
Baby since I met you, ooh

All the places that I've been around
And all the good looking girls I've met
They just don't seem to fit in
Knowing this particularly sad, yeah

But it seemed so natural, darling
That you and I are here
Just talking over cigarettes and drinking coffee, ooh now

And whole my heart cries out
Love at last I've found you, ooh now
And honey won't you let me
Just be my whole life around you
And while I complete, I complete my whole life would be, yeah
If you would take things under consideration
And walk down this hour with me
And I would love it, yeah

People I say it's so early in the morning
Ou, it's a quarter till three
We're sittin' here talkin'
Over cigarettes and drinking coffee, now, lord
And I'll like to show you, well
I've known nothing but good old joy
Since I met you, darling
Honey since I've met you, baby yeah

I would love to have another drink of coffee, now
And please, darling, help me smoke this one more cigarette, now
I don't want no cream and sugar
'cause I've got you, now darling
But just let me enjoy
Help me to enjoy
 This good time that we'll have, baby
It's so early, so early in the morning
So early, so early in the morning
And I've got you
And you've got me
And we'll have each other
And we don't, we don't want nothing but joy, y'all
Nothing but joy...

           (WHEN YOU'RE DOWN AND OUT)
        (Cox)


Once I lived the life of millionaire
People spending my money, honey
Lord, and I just didn't care, now Lord
Takin' my friend out
Tryin' to have a good time
They drank that strong bootleg liquor
And that good old champagne and wine

Well, just as soon as my money got so low
I couldn't find my friends, Lord
And I just didn't have no place to go
Now, no no
But if I ever, and if I ever get my hands
On them green dollars again, yeah
I'm gonna hold on
Till that big eagle grin, Lord now

I'm trying to tell y'all
That nobody wants you
People, nobody wants you, no
When you're down and out, now now Lord
Because in your pocket, no
There is not one penny
And all of them so-called friends
I'm trying to tell, y'all
That you haven't got any

But, yeah, and just as soon
As you get back on your feet again
People, I'm tryin' to tell you
That here they come
Tellin' you all
They're your long lost friend
Oh but I'm tryin' to tell everybody
Lord, without a doubt
That nobody wants you
Nobody wants you, no no
Nobody wants you, no
Nobody needs tou, nobody wants you
When you're down and out, Lord
And nobody says a good thing about you
And nobody can tell you when to turn
And when to go...

9 - EVERYBODY MAKES A MISTAKE
(Eddie Floyd & Al Isbell)
 

Out in the street
Playin' all night long
While the one that loved me
Man, she was sitting at home
Oh I didn't worry, I was a fool
Playing the field
And running around having fun, man
I know everybody make a mistake sometime

But when I got home
My baby, she was gone
And I found her letter lying
Right there on the kitchen floor
It read, "I tried to wait
For you to come, honey
But like a fool
You were running around doing me wrong"
I'm sorry, I know, baby
Everybody make a mistake sometime
I know I made one

And oh, so if you are running around
With somebody else
Tryin' to satisfy
Man, you can't satisfy you selfish self
So man, you gotta take heed
Listen to every word I'm saying

'Cause that same thing, man
Might happen to you one day
And you know that everybody
Man, I know that everybody
Make a mistake sometime
I know because I made mine
I made a great big one
Man, I made mine
I made a great big one
And I can't do it no more
No, I'm never gonna do it
I want you to come back to me, baby
