Cooke it is. (Shame on me -- he's one of my all-time heroes.)

OK, the words are:

(AIN'T THAT) GOOD NEWS
(S. Cooke)

Oh my baby's comin' home tomorrow
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news
My baby is coming home tomorrow
Ain't that news
Yeah, ain't that news

I got a letter just the other day
Telling me that she was on her way
And she wants me to meet her at the station
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news

In the letter she told me she still loved me
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news
In the letter she told me she loved me
Ain't that news
Yeah, ain't that news

He said she's sorry that she left
Found out she don't want nobody else
She said she wants me all to herself now
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news

Ain't that news
Ain't that good news
Ain't that news
Ain't that news

I said my baby's coming home tomorrow
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news

I'm gonna have her a party at the station
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news
Have a party at the station
Ain't that news
Yeah, ain't that news

And I can't wait to get her home
Where we can finally be alone
Disconnect my telephone now
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news

Ain't that news
Ain't that good news

I said my baby's coming home tomorrow
Ain't that good news
Yeah, ain't that news

Ain't that news
Ain't that good news

Not only was he the most incredible soul-pop-gospel singer ever, he wrote all of his big hits, including the National Anthem of rock 'n roll, Bring It On Home to Me.
