John Fogerty – Wasn't That A Woman lyrics

Wasn't that a woman! (x4)
Oh, yeah!

(wasn't that a woman) took me by surprise,
(wasn't that a woman) uh-huh, right between the eyes.
(wasn't that a woman) well, I hope to believe,
(wasn't that a woman) made a schoolboy outta me.

Oh yeah, I got it badly, ain't too much to figure out;
Bam boom, and she had me. Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

(wasn't that a woman) watch me, watch me, watch me runnin' down the line,
(wasn't that a woman) ain't she fine, ain't she fine;
(wasn't that a woman) well I'm chasin' after that,
(wasn't that a woman) uh-huh, pure cadillac.

How! Oh, yeah!


(wasn't that a woman) whoa smile on my face,
(wasn't that a woman) turn every head in the place;
(wasn't that a woman) oww, such sweet agony,
(wasn't that a woman) whoa 'cause she's leavin' here with me!

Wasn't that a woman!...
(various shouting and talking)
