why don’t you try me – ry cooder lyrics

(e. young)

if your man has got you on the run why don’t you try me ?
if you wanna have a little fun, oh baby, why don’t you try me ?
if you tote more that you can bear, if your troubles been more than your share
and if things are not going just right why don’t you try a man like me tonight ?

why don’t you try me tonight ?
why don’t you try me ?
why don’t you try me tonight ?
why don’t you try me ?

last night while i was trying to sleep
i heard a racket from the room next door, hum
and that was you and your man havin’ a fight
like you’ve done so many nights before

“woman, i’ll turn you every which way but loose”
is what i heard him shout, uh-oh, look out!
so i jumped out of the bed and i opened the door
just as you came runnin’ out

and i hollered: why don’t you try me tonight ?
why don’t you try me ?
why don’t you try me tonight ?
why don’t you try me ?

i ain’t saying i’m all that you need
and i won’t tell you, honey, you will be free
but all night, well, i will keep trying
and when i say i want ya, girl, you know i’m not lyin’
you see a good woman out on the streets these days, friends
ah, a bad old man can’t be hard to find, no, no
kind of man who’d steal your heart
and call true love a crime

that’s why i keep asking ya, baby
why don’t you try me tonight ?
do yourself a favor
why don’t you try me ?
regular man ain’t treatin’ you right
why don’t you try a man like me tonight ?
why don’t you try me ?
why don’t you try a man like me tonight ?
why don’t you try me ?
