I Can't Get My Hands on You

This song is by The Jeff Healey Band and appears on the album Hell to Pay (1990) and on the album Live at Montreux 1999 (2005).

I've got two islands in the Bahamas
Got some land in the south of France
I am gonna get me a house out on Malibu beach
Just as soon as I get the chance

Though I ain't got a driver's license
I've got a Rolls and five limousines
I've got every little thing that money can buy
And I guess that I am a man of means

Well, I've got a lot of things, baby, in this world
But I can't get my hands on you

Once I loaned out a whole lot of money
To a man who I called my friend
And he skipped town without paying me back
Well, he'll never pull that trick again

And though it ain't always been this easy
I worked hard to get to this spot
And all that it took was determination
To get all the things that I've got

You see, I've got a lot of things, baby, in this world
But I can't get my hands on you

No, no, no
Hey!

Well, I guess if I had to admit it
In my life, I've done okay
Whenever they told me that I couldn't get something
I went out and found me a way

But with you, it's a different story, baby
You just won't give me a break
How am I gonna face all of my friends
My whole reputation's at stake

You see, I've got a lot of things, baby, in this world
But I can't get my hands on you

Oh, I can't do it, baby
No, no, no
Can't get a hand on you
