A huge R&B hit (#80 Pop) for 'The Nucleus of Soul', O.V. Wright, in the
spring of 1967.


                        "Eight Men, Four Women"
              ("Deadric Malone", a.k.a. Don Robey, a.k.a.
                 anonymous Duke/Peacock staff writers)

Intro (sung by backing vocalists):

	  Am             Dm 
	(Eight men, four women
	  F7               E7      Am    E7
	 Lord, that's the jury of love)

Verse 1:

	   Am
	I dreamed that love was a crime
	I was alone, so lonely and blue
	                         C            E7  Am      F
	You know why?  Because eight men and four women, Lord
	      Am       Dm        Am                E7
	They found me guilty of loving you (loving you)

Verse 2:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/w/wright_o_v/eight_men_four_women_crd.html ]
	As they were taking me away
	You were taking, I saw you when you were taking the witness stand
	You know what?  I heard the lawyer when he asked you, my love
	"Do you really love that man?"

Bridge:

	        Am
	It was eight men and four women (guilty)
	                E7
	How could they  be so blind (guilty)
	Am                       Dm
	How could they?  I knew they sat there
	     F7          E7     Am    E7
	And called true love a crime     [this is what killed me]

Verse 3:

	But a tear rolled down my cheek
	I felt so sorry for you
	You know why?  Because in my heart I knew, oh yes, baby I knew
	That they would find you guilty too

Spoken interlude:

	 Am
	Judge, your honor and to the jury
	I intend to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are innocent
	And true love is not a crime

Coda:

	  F7               E7      Am
	(Lord, that's the jury of love)
	                  Lord, that's the jury of love

	         F7               E7      Am
	A mean judge and a mean jury, oh, that's the jury of love
	       (Lord, that's the jury of love)

	  F7               E7      Am
	(Lord, that's the jury of love)  [fade]
