I've Been Working

  • I've been workin'
    I've been workin' so hard
    I've been workin'
    I've been workin' so hard
    I come home
    Make love to you, make love to you

    I've been grindin'
    I've been grindin' so long
    I've been grindin'
    I've been grindin' so long

    Been up the thruway, down the thruway
    Up the thruway, down the thruway
    Up, down, back and up again

    I said woman, woman, woman, woman, woman
    Make me feel so good
    Woman, woman, woman, woman, woman, woman , woman
    Make me feel alright
    Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
    Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright

    I said woman, woman, woman, woman, woman, woman, woman
    Make me feel so good
    Woman, woman, woman, woman, woman, woman, woman, woman
    Make me feel alright
    Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
    Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
    Make me feel so good
    Set my soul on fire
    Set my soul on fire

  • Pat from Saint Paul, MnBob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band did an excellent cover of this song on their "Live Bullet" album, where I first heard it. Only heard the Van Morrison original recently.
