Performed only during a soundcheck on 26th March 1995.

Lewis and Wright were, respectively, the bass player and organist in Percy Sledge's band at the time of the songs creation. The song supposedly originated from an impromptu, improvised performance during a live show. Sledge though for some reason did not take a share of the song writing credits. It was originally recorded by Percy Sledge in December 1965.
