Hadn't slept in days and had no sense of time,
My mind and body ached and I just wanted to unwind.
So I made my way along a road by some cactus trees,
To a little house of wood and stone where I heard she'd be.
The word I heard was she could take your blues away
Massage your back, your arms, your legs and ease the aches.
With every stroke she spoke a word that soothed my hurt,
Relaxed me as I drifted off to the tune I heard
Tangee sweet lady, take away all of the walls,
See if I'm inside here after all.
Tangee sweet lady, ah, wake up the feelin's in me,
And with it set my mind and body free I awoke.
I thought for sure this was a dream,
As the rain outside the window smelt so fresh and clean
The room we shared had handmade touches of her everywhere
By her front door I turned and placed a flower in her long brown hair
Tangee sweet lady, you took away all of the walls
And I see that I'm inside here after all
Tangee sweet lady you woke up the feelin's in me
And with it set my mind and body free
