A major country singer in a Soul database! Are we mad? Well, in fact Charlie Rich made two all time Soul stunners in the early 1960’s and “Don’t Tear Me Down” was close behind, before going behind Country and Western closed doors (closed doors to Soul that is).

For a White guy at the time he was an exceptional Soul singer.

MOHAIR SAM  Song Lyrics – Charlie Rich

Well – who is the hippie that’s happenin’ all over our town?
Tearin’ up chicks with the message that he lays down
Who is the coolest guy, what is, what am?
That’s fast-talkin’ – slow walkin’ – good-lookin’ Mohair Sam.

Chicks are makin; reservations for his lovin’ so fine (so fine)
Screamin’ and shoutin’ he’s got ’em all waitin’ in line
Who is the coolest guy, what is, what am?
That’s fast-talkin’ – slow walkin’ – good-lookin’ Mohair Sam.

Who is the hippie that’s happenin’ all over our town?
Tearin’ up chicks with the message that he lays down
Who is the coolest guy, what is, what am?
That’s fast-talkin’ – slow walkin’ – good-lookin’ Mohair Sam.
