AL KOOPER lyrics - Toe Hold

AL KOOPER
"Toe Hold"
(Hayes-Porter)

All my life I've been a poor boy; it's been hard to get a dime
Everything I got I had to pay for it on time, but that's all right
Long as I got a toe hold, long as I got a piece of you
Long as I got a toe hold, I can make it through
Look here, I said I went to see a doctor, baby talk about his malnutrition
Now I don't try to be a fat man; I gotta look about my ambition, look here
Long as I got a toe hold, long as I got a piece of you
Long as I got a toe hold, I can make it through
A li-li-li-li-li-li-li-li toe hold, a li-li-li-li-li-li-li-li toe hold, hey!
So baby, if you're with me, let the whole world be against me
I don't expect to ever get rich, I'm doin' fine, me diggin' a ditch; that's all right
Long as I got a toe hold, long as I got a piece of you
Long as I got a toe hold, I can make it through
Ah, ooo baby, ow, good God!
