Seventh Son
Written by Willie Dixon
From the album: Jools Holland's Big Band Rhythm & Blues
 

 

Everybody's talking about the seventh son
In the whole round world there is only one
Yes I'm the one
I'm the one
I'm the one
The one they call the seventh son

I can tell your future
it comes to pass
I can do things for you
that make your heart feel glad
Look in the sky, predict the rain
I can tell when a woman's got another man

I'm the one
Yes I'm the one
I'm the one
I'm the one
The one they call the seventh son

I can hold you close
I can squeeze you tight
Make you cry for me both day and night
Heal the sick, raise the dead
And make the little girls stomp outta their heads

I can talk these words that will sound so sweet
They will make even your little heart skip a beat
I heal the sick, raise the dead
And make the little girls stomp outta their hair

I'm the one
Yes I'm the one
I'm the one
I'm the one
The one they call the seventh son
I'm the one
I'm the one
The one they call the seventh son
