Bettye LaVette Live (Part 1)



Sunday evenin’

Come soft and low

Ain’t nothin’ shakin’, chile

Ain’t no place to go


Then like a shot–

Oh my god, you can hear that sound

It’s that soul… tambourine man

Just gettin’ down



Lyrics from “Soul Tambourine” by Brad Shapiro, first recorded by Bettye LaVette in 1973.
