Philadelphia-born minister Burke started preaching at the age of seven and often recorded his vocals from behind a pulpit. Burke attacks this song in the style of a fire-and-brimstone Southern preacher, calling out for a witness and testifying to the power of love. In the congregation: the Rolling Stones, who covered it in 1965.
