Try A Little Tenderness

Lyrics: Campbell, Connelly, Woods
Music: Campbell, Connelly, Woods

Played High Noon (including Mickey Hart) in 1981. They played the Otis Reading version rather than the original version recorded by Bing Crosby and others.

Oh, she may be weary
Young girls they do get weary
Wearing that same old shaggy dress
When she gets weary
Why don't you try a little tenderness

I know she's there waiting
Just anticipating
Things that she'll never, never, never, never possess
But while she's there waiting, without them
Why don't you try a little tenderness
That's what you gotta do

It might be just a little bit sentimental
She has her grief and care
But the soft words, they are spoke so gentle
It makes it easier, easier to bear

I know you won't regret it, no, no
Young girls they don't forget it
Love is their only happiness
But it's all so easy
All you gotta do is try a little tenderness
All you gotta do is hold her where you want her
You got to squeeze her, don't tease her, never leave her
Just try a little tenderness
