Seems I've got to have a change of scene
'Cause every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to scream
Won't someone lock the door and turn the key

Feeling alright
I'm not feeling too good myself
Feeling alright
I'm not feeling that good myself

Boy you sure took me for one big ride
And even now I sit and I wonder why
That when I think of you
I stop myself from crying
I just can't waste my time
I must get down
I've got to stop believing in all your lies
'Cause there's to much to do before I die

Feeling alright
I'm not feeling too good myself
Feeling alright
I'm not feeling that good myself

Don't you get to lost in all I say
But at the time you know, I really felt that way
But that was then and now you know its today
I can't get safe I guess I'm here to stay
Till someone comes along to take my place
With a different name and a different face

Feeling alright
I'm not feeling that good myself
Feeling alright
I'm not feeling that good myself

Feeling alright
I'm not feeling that good myself
Feeling alright
I'm not feeling good myself

Feeling alright
I'm not feeling too good myself
Feeling alright
I'm not feeling that good myself

Would have guessed Leon Russell
I see it was Carol Kaye on bass, would have guessed it was her on guitar.
Geez I'm way off today.

I saw Joe live a few years ago at a local casino with a smallish venue; Joe rocked it big time.  He was about 65 at the time.  Unbelievable rocking voice.  RIP Joe!

 


turn it up and dance.

Sorry, I went Album Cover- Alec Baldwin - Recent SNL skits and lost the plot...
A modicum of talent transformed by energy and enthusiasm - always time to dance when Cocker is playing.

Rock and roll baby...this is a great party rock{#Dancingbanana_2}
Joe was certainly influenced by Ray Charles in this song...really brings back a lot of memories for me.
Probably my favorite Joe Cocker piece.
Sadly missed.  Joe Cocker was a very unique rocker.
