Canned Heat - Let's Work Together - Live 1970




Canned Heat is an American rock band that was formed in Los Angeles in 1965. The group has been noted for its interpretations of blues material and for its efforts to promote interest in this type of music and its original artists. It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, who took the name from Tommy Johnson's 1928 "Canned Heat Blues", a song about an alcoholic who had desperately turned to drinking Sterno, generically called "canned heat" (from the original 1914 product name Sterno Canned Heat).


After appearances at the Monterey and Woodstock festivals at the end of the 1960s, the band acquired worldwide fame with a lineup consisting of Hite (vocals), Wilson (guitar, harmonica and vocals), Henry Vestine and later Harvey Mandel (lead guitar), Larry Taylor (bass), and Adolfo de la Parra (drums).




Lyrics


Together we'll stand

Divided we'll fall

Come on now, people

Let's get on the ball


And work together

Come on, come on

Let's work together

Now, now people

Because together we will stand

Every boy, every girl and man


People, when things go wrong

As they sometimes will

And the road you travel

It stays all uphill


Let's work together

Come on, come on

Let's work together, ah

You know together we will stand

Every boy, girl, woman and man


Oh well now, two or three minutes

Two or three hours

What does it matter now

In this life of ours


Let's work together

Come on, come on

Let's work together

Now, now people

Because together we will stand

Every boy, every woman and man


Ah, come on

Ah, come on, let's work together


Well now, make someone happy

Make someone smile

Let's all work together

And make life worthwhile


Let's work together

Come on, come on

Let's work together

Now, now people

Because together we will stand

Every boy, girl, woman and man


Oh well now, come on you people

Walk hand in hand

Let's make this world of ours

A good place to stand


And work together

Come on, come on

Let's work together

Now, now people

Because together we will stand

Every boy, girl, woman and man

Ah, yeah


Well now, together we will stand

Every boy, girl, woman and man

Ah, yeah
