I Need a Woman

Ry Cooder

It's been raining in my mouth all day 
Dripping down to my clothes 
My patience it is wearing thin 
Got a fire inside my nose 
Searching for the truth the way God designed it 
The truth is I might drown before I find it 

Well, I need a woman 
Yes, I do 
Need a woman 
Yes, I do 
Someone who can see me as I am 
Give the kind of love that don't have to be condemned 

And I want you to be that woman 
Every night 
Be that woman 
Treat me right 

I've had my eyes on you, baby 
For about five long years 
You probably don't know me at all 
But I've seen your laughter and I've seen your tears 
Now you don't frighten me 
I ain't no defendant 
And you look like it wouldn't hurt you none 
To have a man of understanding 

Well, I need a woman 
Oh, don't I 
Need a woman 
Bring it home safe at last 

I've seen you standing on the corner 
Seen you sitting down in the park 
Been watching you in the sunshine 
Walking with you in the dark 

And I want you to be that woman 
Treat me right 
Be that woman 
Every night 

Well, if you believe in something long enough 
You just naturally come to think it's true 
There ain't no wall you can't crossover 
Ain't no fire you can't walk through 
Well, believing is all right 
Just don't let the wrong people know what it's all about 
They might put the evil eye on you 
Use their hidden powers to try to turn you out 

Well, I need a woman 
Just to be my queen 
Need a woman 
Black, white, yellow, brown, blue or green 

Riding out with me at midnight 
Like two Spanish desperadoes 
Gazing down upon the futile world 
In her Cadillac Eldorado 
We will penetrate the storm 
In search of truth that has not been tested 
But she better bring along her checkbook 
Just in case we get arrested 

And I want you to be that woman
