Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love

soundclip


by Stevie Ray Vaughan
recording of 1985

from Soul To Soul (Epic EK-40036) & Live Alive (Epic EGK-40511),
copyright notice

I ain't gone 'n' give up on love,
love won't give up on me
I ain't gone 'n' give up on love,
love ain't gone 'n' give up on me
Every tear that I've cried,
only washed away the fear inside
Now I, I ain't gone 'n' give up on love

Every beat of my heart,
pounds with joy and not with pain
Every beat of my heart,
pounds with joy and not in vain
And although those are painful memories,
only brought me to my knees
I was just given up on love

Little Johnny Taylor told us so long ago
What about the midnight cryin',
wo that cheatin' and lyin'
What about the price that will,
oh surely be paid
Those that gave up on love,
love will have it's day
I ain't givin' up on love

I ain't gone 'n' give up on love,
love won't give up on me
I ain't gone 'n' give up on love,
love won't give up on me
Every time I cry, love just won't let me be,
won't set me free

Look up on the wall baby,
hand me down my shootin' iron
Look up on the wall baby,
hand me down my shootin' iron
Call your mother long distance,
tell her to expect your body home

If the city don't bury you baby,
Lord knows the county will
If the city don't bury you baby,
Lord knows the county will
You made your last mistake,
you going way out on that boot hill

Lord I don't want to whacks you darlin',
'cause you gave me my first thrill
Lord I don't want to whacks you baby,
'cause you gave me my first thrill
You did me so wrong,
you're going way out on that boot hill

by Doyle Bramhall
recording of 1985

from Soul To Soul (Epic EK-40036), copyright notice

You can't change it,
can't rearrange it
If time is all that we got
then baby let's take it

Lovin' is a lovin',
the moment is a-right
It's worth all the years in the past,
let's go one more night

Get away from the blind side of life
Honey I want you to be by my side
Me and my back door moves ain't no more,
no more

Get away from the blind side of life
Honey I want you to be by my side
Me and my back door moves ain't no more,
no more

Get away from the blind side of life
Honey I want you to be by my side
Me and my back door moves ain't no more,
no more

Goodnight my darlin',
another day has passed
Forget all those painful memories,
our love's gonna last

Come to me baby, come to me one more time
It's time we got movin', time to move on
Let's slide out the door, let's slide out the door
Ride our way home, let's glide our way home

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go,
let's go, let's go, I've come back for more

I want to be close to you baby as I can get
Close to you baby as water is wet
Close to you baby as a hair on your head
Close to you babe you better believe what I said

I want to be close to you baby,

I want to be close to you baby as white is to rice
Close to you baby as cold is to ice
Close to you baby as a fire is to smoke
Close to you baby as a pig is to pork
I want to be close to you baby,

I want to be close to you darlin',
'til you don't know what to say or do

I said closer and closer baby
Closer and closer baby, haha
Closer and closer baby
Closer and closer baby
I want to be close to you darlin',
'til you don't know what to say or do

I want to be close to you baby as the whites of your eyes
Close to you baby as cold is to ice
Close to you baby as an egg is to a hen
Close to you baby as Siamese twins

I want to be close to you baby,
whoa let me be close to you
I want to be close to you darlin',

Once was a sweet thing baby, held out her lovin' in our hands

You showed your appreciation, by walkin' out anyway

by Stevie Ray Vaughan
recording of 1984

from Couldn't Stand The Weather (Epic EK-39304), copyright notice

Runnin' through this business of life,
rarely time if I'm needed to
Ain't so funny when things ain't feelin' right,
then daddy's hand helps to see me through
Sweet as sugar love won't wash away,
rain or shine, it always here to stay
All these years you and I've spent together,
all this, we just couldn't stand the weather

Like a train that stops at every station,
we all deal with trials and tribulations
Fear hangs the fellow that ties up his years,
entangled in yellow and cries all his tears
Changes come before we can grow,
learn to see them before we're too old
Don't just take me for tryin' to be heavy,
understand, it's time to get ready for the storm

from In Step (Epic EK-45024), copyright notice

Day by day night after night,
blinded by the neon lights
Hurry here hustlin' there,
no one's got the time to spare
Money's tight nothin' free,
won't somebody come and rescue me
I am stranded, caught in the crossfire
Stranded, caught in the crossfire

Tooth for tooth eye for an eye,
sell your soul just to buy buy buy
Beggin' a dollar stealin' a dime,
come on can't you see that I
I am stranded, caught in the crossfire
I am stranded, caught in the crossfire

I need some kind of kindness,
some kind of sympathy oh no
We're stranded, caught in the crossfire

Save the strong lose the weak,
never turning the other cheek
Trust nobody don't be no fool,
whatever happened to the golden rule
We got stranded, caught in the crossfire
We got stranded, caught in the crossfire
We got stranded, caught in the crossfire
Stranded, caught in the crossfire
Help me

True love is gone, I's been played for a fool
True love is gone, I's been played for a fool
I'm turnin' the tables on you
You've been playin' dirty pool

You said you'd call the shots darlin',
all your friends thought that was cool, so cool baby
You said you'd call the shots darlin',
all your friends thought that was so cool
Yeah, when you shot at the eight-ball baby,
I knew you were playin' dirty pool

They say that life, life is a game of give and take
They say that life, life is a game of give and take
I'm tellin' you one thing right now little baby,
I won't be the one to pay for your mistake

Your gonna miss me little darlin', the day that I'm gone
Your gonna miss me little baby, the day that I'm gone
Cause I'm leavin' in the mornin', won't be back at all

You have run me ragged baby, your own fault your on your own
You have run me ragged baby, your own fault your on your own
You didn't want me no way baby, 'till that other man was gone

You can try to get me back baby, with all your tricks and charms
You can try to get me back baby, with all your tricks and charms
But when all your games are over, you'll be left with empty arms

Low down and dead, and all alone

Say things to me like a cowgirl would,
I'll do tricks for you like a cowboy should
You look romantic layin' in the hay,
I need you tonight in a new kind-a way
When you look at me with those eyes,
it makes me start to fantasize

Do it to me like I know you could,
so I can do it to you baby like a Texan should

Ridin' the range I think of you,
I dig your chili you know it's true
Make big money put it in the bank,
that longhorn caddy got a great big tank

Do it to me like I know you could,
so I can do it to you baby like a Texan should

Well you're the kind-a woman who's above the rest,
well nothing for me but the best
You say you need a fella who really can,
do it to you good like a Texan man

Massive wardrobe of cowboy clothes,
top of my head to the tip of my toes
Ah, you look so good in my hat with fringe on it,
so put on my boots hmmm doggone it

Do it to me like I know you could,
I do it to you like a Texan should
Do it to me baby like I know you could,
so I can do it to you baby like a good Texan should

It's hard to be
It's hard for me to keep arm's length from my baby
Can't you see, when I'm away from her it sho' nuff drives me crazy
Something inside of me, when she's gone I miss her so
I wanna tell her how I feel, just gotta let her know
When I'm alone with her, and she's in my arms I'm in heaven

It's all I see, in my dreams, we'll be happy together
Side by side, I hope that our love will stay this way forever
Something inside of me, got a feelin' that won't let go
I wanna tell her how I feel, I just gotta let her know
Lookin' through her eyes, I see a paradise, no mistake she's full of fire

Like a real live wire, a house on fire
She's my burnin', she's my burnin', burnin' desire
Well it's hard to be, it's hard for me to keep arm's length from my baby
Oh can't you see, when I'm away from her it sho' nuff drives me crazy
Something inside of me, when she's gone I miss her so
I wanna tell her how I feel, I just gotta let her know

When I'm alone with her, and she's in my arms I'm in heaven
Like a real live wire, a house on fire
She's my burnin', she's my burnin', burnin' desire
Hard to be, it's hard for me
It's hard to keep, keep me from my baby

I'm leavin' you woman, before I commit some crime
I'm leavin' you woman, before I commit a crime
You the evilest woman, I think ever crossed my mind

You put poison in my coffee, instead of milk or cream
You poison my coffee, in with that milk and cream
You're the meanest woman, I think I've most ever seen

You mix my drink, with a can of Red Devil lye
You mix my drink, with a can of Red Devil lye
Then you sit right down, watchin' me, hopin' I might die

You better be watchin' me baby, baby it was not my time
You better be watchin' me baby, just might be your time
