  Saved session 2, Muscle Shoals Studio, Sheffield AL - 12.feb.1980, album version  

You have given everything to me
What can i do for you?
You have given me eyes to see
What can i do for you?
Helped me outta bondage an' you made me renewed inside
Filled up the hunger that had always been denied
Opened up the door no man can shut an' you opened it up so wide
An' you've chosen me to be among the few.
What can i do for you?

You have laid down your life for me
What can i do for you?
You have explained every mystery
What can i do for you?
Soon as a man is born, you know the sparks begin to fly
He gets wise in his own eyes an' he's made to believe a lie.
Who would deliver him from the death is bound to die?
Well you done it all an' there is no more than anyone can pretend to do.
What can i do for you?

You have given all there is to give
What can i give to you?
You have given me life to live
How can i live for you?
I know all about poison, i know all about fiery darts
I don't care how rough the road is, show me where it starts.
Whatever pleases you, tell it to my heart
Well i don't deserve it but i sure did make it thru.
What can i do for you?  up

  Live, Fow Warfield, San Francisco CA - 16.nov.1979  

You have given everything to me
What can i do for you?
You have given me eyes to see
What can i do for you?
Pulled me outta bondage an' you made me renewed inside
Opened up the door that couldn't be shut an' you opened it up so wide
Filled up the hunger that had always been denied
An' you've chosen me to be among the few.
What can i do for you?

You have laid down your life for me
What can i do for you?
You have explained every mystery
What can i do for you?
Soon as a man is born, you know the sparks begin to fly
He gets wise in his own eyes an' he's made to believe a lie.
Who would deliver him from the death is bound to die?
You done it all an' there is no more anyone can do.
What can i do for you?

You have given all there is to give
What can i give to you?
You have given me life to live
How can i live for you?
I know all about poison, i know all about them fiery darts
I don't care how rough the road is, show me where it starts.
Whatever pleases you, tell it to my heart
I don't deserve it but i sure did make it thru.
What can i do for you?  up
