Haunted by Music – Ry Cooder, I think it’s going to work out fine
I think it’s going to work out fine is the last track on side one of the Bop Till You Drop album, released by Ry Cooder in 1979.
It’s an instrumental track, a version of a song written by Rose Marie McCoy and Sylvia McKinney and it has been covered by a variety of artists, including Ike and Tina Turner and James Taylor and Linda Rondstadt. The song is a real “couple” song, an interchange of comments, a conversation.
Here’s the first verse of the Turner’s version
Darling (yes Tine) it’s time to get next to me
(honey that was my plan from the very beginning)
Darling (un huh) I never thought that this could be
(What you mean) Oh yeah
Your lips set my soul on fire
You fulfill my one desire
Oh darling (yes yes) I think it’s gonna work out fine
(It’s gonna work out fine)
