Bonnie Raitt – Love Me Like a Man

Bonnie Raitt – Love Me Like a Man – UK TV Appearance, 1976.

It would help if you realized this video was shot 47 years ago when our beloved Bonnie was around 27. Like a fine wine, this Lady has evolved. Many more to you Bonnie Raitt.

This lady never misses a note. Pitch perfect. Nothing beats the sound of good ole traditional blues, traditional country, traditional jazz, and traditional bluegrass!

Man I’ve been seeing, baby
Got their soul up on a shelf
No, they could never love me
Can’t even love himself

But, I want someone to love me
Baby, I want a one who understands
Who won’t put himself above me
Who can love me like a man

I never seen such losers
Don’t think I haven’t tried
To find a man to take me home
Instead of always for a ride

Baby, are you someone who can?
Believe me when I tell you, Darlin’
You can love me like a man

They want me to rock on
Like my back ain’t got no bone
Why don’t you rock me one time, baby
Like my backbone was your own

Baby, I wanna wait until you can
Believe me when I tell you, Darling
You can love me like a man

Come home sad and lonely
Feel like I wanna cry
Come over here and hold me, baby
And don’t ever ask they reason why

I said, I want a lover
Won’t have to work to understand
Don’t you put yourself above me, baby
Love me like a man

Songwriters: Chris Smither / Georgette How
