i got the will lyrics – otis redding

a boy i used to love, he came up and left me now
i’m tryin’ to get him back but he won’t accept me, no no
i got the will, i can’t find the way no now, no no

this is what she told me now
you got the will, girl there’s got to be a way now
you got everything, you got the power now
you got everything, lord have mercy na, na

every second, babyevery minute, honey
every hour now, i’m always thinkin’ of you, baby
i got the will but i can’t find my way now, no no

let me, tell me tell you, honey
i know you need me, baby, i know you love me, honey
i really want you, i got to, got to see you now
baby, i got the will but i can’t find my way now, no no

let me, let me tell you now
i got the will, i got the power now
i got everything, lord, have mercy, no no

let me tell you now
what my mama told me, the old sain’ is
if there’s a will, girl, there’s got to be a way now
mama, i got the will bit i can’t find my way now, oh no

this is what she told me now
you got the will, girl, you got the power now
you got everything, good gracious lord, have mercy

i got the will, i can’t find my way
i got the will now, i can’t find my way now
i got the power now i got the will now

you got the will now, i got the will now
can’t find my way now, mama, mama
i got the will now, i cant find my way now
