Percy Sledge – Out Of Left Field lyrics

When least expecting it
Bring light to the darkness
Oh what a
I needed someone to call my own
Suddenly out of left field
Out of left field, out of left field
Love came along

I was walking down a railroad
That went nowhere
Building dreams that were all
Left by the wayside

Then out of the blue
Honey, I found you
Oh yeah

Sugar and peaches
In a brown
Good-lovin' sweetness have taken their stand
She made a mountain of love
From a little grain of sand
Suddenly out of left field
Out of left field, out of left field
Came a lover and a friend
She was a lover and a friend
Came out of nowhere
She gave me a
Everything is alright


How sweet it is
