~ WEAKNESS IN A MAN ~
                    WEAKNESS IN A MAN
                                       (HISTORY)

In my opinion, nobody ever had a better singing voice than Brook Benton. Different maybe, but none better. Jimmy Bowen produced this record on the west coast with the Hollywood strings (Violin Section), in the background. I had just bought a stereo, (the going thing of that time), and when I got this recording in and played it I was overwhelmed. It was like taking a country songwriter's music to another level. I was so overcome that I actually had tears in my eyes as I listened to it. It was like having one of your daughters crowned Miss America!!!!!! Brook performed it to perfection, but this was how he always did things.

He later did another song of mine and it was great also. His wife said he liked to kinda tickle the keys of a piano so I put one on his web page, in appreciation.


I loved this when he did it, and now many years later, I still do.....

        WEAKNESS IN A MAN
                                   
Funny how you've changed
It makes me wonder, have I ever really known you?
How could you abuse and use
The kindness and tenderness I've shown you
If I'd a known, then I'd have shown
The strength on which my love could make a stand
But you've mistaken tenderness and kindness
For the weakness in a man

I can give you almost
Anything if I know what you're looking for
I can give you everything
That any other man can give, and a little bit more
He may promise you the world
But I can give you everything he can
So don't mistake my tenderness
For any sign of weakness in your man

I may live my life alone
With walls of stone inside some lonely cell
But no man's gonna take the love I own
And ever live to tell the tale
So don't forsake the vows you made
And don't remove my little golden band
And don't mistake my tenderness
For any sign of weakness in a man

Tag:  No don't mistake my tenderness
         For any sign of weakness in your man
