Song Lyric Sunday: Let Go – ‘Don’t Let Go’

This week, Helen’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday is ‘Let Go’.

So, just to be awkward, here’s a song entitled ‘Don’t Let Go’. It’s the first song that came to my mind when I saw the prompt, which is entirely due to the fact that it was a long-time staple of the Jerry Garcia Band.

This was written by the American R&B pianist Jesse Albert Stone, probably best known for writing (under an alias) ‘Shake, Rattle & Roll’.

Hear that whistle, it’s six o’clock
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Come on baby, it’s time to rock
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)
I’m so happy to have you here
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Keeps me grinnin’ from ear to ear
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)

Ooh wee
This feeling’s killing me
Oh shucks
I wouldn’t stop for a million bucks
I love you so
Just hold me tight and don’t let go
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Hold me tight and don’t let go
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)

Thunder, lightning, wind and rain
Love is humming inside my brain
There’s one thing baby, that keeps me crying
You been keeping your lips from mine

Hound dog barking upside the hill
Love is dragging him through the mill
If it wasn’t for having you
I’d be barking and a-hollering too

Hold me tight and don’t let go
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)
Hold me tight and don’t let go
(Don’t let go, don’t let go)

Someday baby, I’ll get you yet
I’ll be hollering, soaking wet
One thing baby, I’ll never stand
Your lips kissing some other man
