Hard To Handle Lyrics

Kicking off with a bold drum rhythm and the gritty vocals of Chris Robinson belting out the opening line, “I’m a man of constant sorrow,” The Black Crowes‘ rendition of “Hard to Handle” is an exhilarating burst of blues-rock that immediately seizes your attention and refuses to let go. Originally penned and performed by soul icon Otis Redding in 1968, this track found a vibrant resurgence in 1990 when the up-and-coming Atlanta band featured it on their first album, Shake Your Money Maker.

Hard To Handle Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Baby, here I am, I’m the man on the scene
I can give you what you want, but you gotta come home with me
I’ve got some good old lovin’, and I got some more in store
When I get through throwin’ it on you, you got to come back for more

[Chorus]
Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain’t nothin’ but drugstore lovin’
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
‘Cause, mama, I’m so hard to handle now
Yes sir, I’m

[Verse 2]
Action speaks louder than words, and I’m a man of great experience
I know you got another man, but I can love you better than him
Take my hand, don’t be afraid, I’m gonna prove every word I say
I’m advertising love for free, so you can place your ad with me

[Chorus]
Boys will come along, a dime by the dozen
That ain’t nothin’ but ten cent lovin’
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
‘Cause, mama, I’m so hard to handle now
Yes sir, I’m
Yeah
Hard to handle, now
Oh baby

[Chorus]
Boys will run along, a dime by the dozen
That ain’t nothin’ but drugstore lovin’
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
‘Cause, mama, I’m so hard to handle now
Hard, hard to handle now
Hard to handle now
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Good lovin’

Oh, good lovin’
