Well now, ev'rybody cryin'
About the Seventh Son
But in the whole round world
There is only one

An I'm the one
Yes, I'm the one
I'm the one, I'm the one
I'm the one they called the Seventh Son

Well, I can tell yo' future
Befo' it come to pass
An I can do things for you
That make your heart feel glad
A-look in the skies
And predict the rain
I can tell when a woman
Got another man

An I'm the one
Yes, I'm the one
Well, I'm the one, I'm the one
The one they call the Seventh Son

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now, I can hold ya close
An I can squeeze you tight
An I can make you cry for me
Both day and night
An I can heal the sick
An even raise the dead
And make you little girls
Talk out of your head

I'm the one
Yes, I'm the one
Well, I'm the one, I'm the one
I'm the one they call the Seventh Son

'Ooh!'

(guitar & instrumental)

Now, I can talk these words
That sound so sweet
I can make your little heart
Even skip a beat

I can make you, baby
Hold you in my arms
And make the flesh quiver
On yo' lovely bones

I'm the one
Yes, I'm the one
Well, I'm the one, I'm the one
The one they call the Seventh Son

(piano, bass & instrumental)

Well now, ev'rybody cryin'
About the Seventh Son
But in the whole round world
There is only one

I'm the one
Yes, I'm the one
Well, I'm the one, I'm the one
I'm the one they called the Seventh Son

Well, I'm the one, I'm the one
I'm the one they call the Seventh Son

Well, I'm the one, I'm the one
I'm the one they call the Seventh Son.
