Okay, y’all, I’m in that mood again. In that mood to listen to some Bobby Womack. If you’ve been browsing through The Black History Channel’s music library, you know that I’ve already listed a couple of his songs. Why so many? Because the man was a master of love songs, that’s why.

This one really brings back memories. It takes me back to a time when my mom and dad rushed out and purchased every Bobby Womack record the moment it dropped. A time when they would play his music over and over, and their faces would be transformed from the serene, reasonable ones I knew to faces consumed with the joy and exquisite pain of the utter helplessness and hopelessness of love.

Ahhhh…ain’t love grand?

Anyway, enough about me and my memories of long ago. Here for your listening pleasure is the incomparable Bobby Womack. Enjoy…if the utter hysteria of true love doesn’t suck you under!

“That’s The Way I Feel About Cha”
Written by Bobby Womack, Jim Grisby, Joe Hicks
Album: Communication
1971 (#2 on R&B Chart, 1972)

Huh, you know life is funny
When you look at it
Everybody wants love
But everybody’s afraid of love

You know I’m a true believer
That if you get anything out of life
You’ve got to put up with
The toils and strife

How listen, hooo
You’re pushing my love
A little bit too far
I don’t think you know
I don’t think you know
How blessed you are

And your friend, Annie Mae
Tell you all she see
Have you ever thought
She was trying to get
Close to me, yeah

Think it over
Think it over, girl
Think it over

Look
That’s the way I feel about cha
That’s the way I feel about cha
And If that’s being weak
For you, darling, yeah
I don’t mind, I don’t mind
I don’t mind, I don’t mind

That’s the way I feel about cha
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
That’s the way I feel about cha

I know you been hurt
And so has many others too
But that’s a sacrifice
That life puts you through
Puts you through, puts you through

Trust in me, my dear
Have no fear
You don’t know but
God might have sent me here
Yeah, sent me here

Think it over
Think it over
You better think it over

Hmm, oh, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah.

That’s the way I feel about cha
That’s the way I feel about cha
Let me say, yeah, yeah
That’s the way I feel about cha
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
That’s the way I feel about cha

I knew, I knew
You know, you know
you know, you know I

That’s the way I feel about cha
Well, that’s the way I feel about cha

Please, please
Please answer love if it
Ever comes knocking at your door
’Cause what’s out there knocking, baby
The world don’t give enough of
Don’t give enough of

I know you’ve been hurt
And so has others too
But all you got to do
Is ask about the changes
That life has put them through

Lord, have mercy
this is just the way it is
Listen

Don’t take my love
As a sign of weakness
Check into the situation, girl
Dig a little bit deeper

That’s the way I feel about cha
Oh, that’s the way
That’s the way I feel about cha

That’s the way I feel about cha
(That’s the way, that’s the way)
That’s the way I feel about cha

That’s the way I feel about cha
(I wanna testify)
That’s the way I feel about cha

That’s the way I feel about cha
(So if I’m weak for you
and I don’t light up, well)
That’s the way I feel about cha

Let me say it, say it, say it
Say it, say it, say it
That’s the way I feel about cha…
