Honest Man



A wonderful tune of love and respect, by Lowell George and Fred Tackett:
somebody?
can you tell me
about the difference
of one man to another?
how come some people
are always runnin' down
everybody around them?
his excuses
thinks we're fools
we are useless

he don't know
how to live and let live
how to give when he takes
all he makes, a lot of heartbreak
is that the way of an honest man?
is he doin' the best he can?
is that the way of an honest man
doin' the best he can?

I got some good friends
you know they're satisfied
most the time with a little
with a little peace, peace of mind
they don't need no alibis
no excuses, no tellin' lies

you know they know
how to live and let live
how to give when they take
they never make a lot of heartbreak
honest man
doin' the best he can
that's the way of an honest man
doin' the best he can

honest man
doin' the best he can

it don't take a vision or a religion
just understanding
it's not that demanding
you don't need no alibis
no excuses, no tellin' lies

when you know
how to live and let live
how to give when you take
never make a lot of heartbreak
and that's the way of an honest man
doin' the best he can
that's the way of an honest man
doin' the best he can
RIP Lowell.

Genius we won't see again in our lifetimes.
