James, Colin - Man's Gotta Be A Stone Lyrics




Man's gotta be a stone,
Man's gotta be a stone,
A man's gotta carry that weight and get back home.

I got one life to live,
Baby, one life to live,
I gotta fill it up, so I can get back what I give.

Gotta get wise today.
I'm gonna have to find a way,
To work till I get it right and make it pay.

Man's gotta be a stone,
Man's gotta be a stone,
A man's gotta carry his weight and get back home.

Man's gotta see the sun,
A man's gotta see the sun,
He's gotta know another new day, has begun.

Man's gotta be a stone,
Man's gotta be a stone,
A man's gotta carry his weight and get back home.

Yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yeah.

James, Colin Man's Gotta Be A Stone Comments
  1. PansBox11

    Perfect.

  2. canadianroot

    He should be included in the same breath as the other world renowned guitar greats. He's that good. If he'd been from the US or the UK, he'd be a household name.

  3. im annonymous

    Does anybody know if this is an original or who recorded it

    Bill Holt

    I really dig Colin James, but this sounds like 95% ZZ Top. Still kickin', though. This is his own, co-written with Daryl Burgess, from Colin's 2009 slbum 'Rooftops And Satellites'.

  4. johncartelli

    is it me or is this song(including solo) dangerously close to ZZ Tops "Lagrange"

    im annonymous

    Thats unfair ya its got a shuffle grove but even the chords are different
    Blues are passed down traditionally and each person develops their own take. It really is true tho the greatest songs have all been written......love colin james

  5. Johnny Vandeweerd

    Tin pan Ally is not An SRV song

  6. Patrick Chamberlain

    Found this gut in 1990 doing Percy Sledges Sudden Stop.....man this guy ROCKS!

  7. Mo Jo

    That's the stuff lads

  8. GerryBarnumMusic

    Ya Colin on Blues harp. Breaking it down, Good to hear it man!

  9. Julie Owen

  10. PansBox11

    I remember this guy used to be on Super Dave Osborne all the time, but I can't find any videos.

    Rouxster Blackbird

    saw this guy in Glasgow on Monday night,,,,,"By God, he,s Good"   ;-)

  12. Michael Cowie

    I'm a long time blues fan and he is under rated as a guitarist.

    Sam McCue

    Michael... he's underrated as a talent, period. The guy's got it all.

  13. John Lee

    slamminshaft

    It's not a rip off its a very common blues run only so much you can do on a guitar

    Sam McCue

    It all comes from somewhere, and ya' gotta' start someplace. 12 tones is kind of limited anyway, don't you think?
