Ray Charles – If You Were Mine lyrics

If you were mine
I'd never let you leave me
If you were mine
I'd never let you go

Because you are
Just what I've always wanted
And I think that you oughta know

From the moment I first saw you
Girl, you went straight to my brain
In my heart I've got a feeling
That I could never explain

If you were mine
You'd never know no sorrow
If you were mine
I'd marry you tomorrow
Yes, I would

Believe me, girl
What the occasion
If you call me
I'll come with no persuasion

You just call
And I'll come running
Oh, yes, I will, baby
Come rain or storm
Hail or snow

Cause the way I feel about you
No place is too remote to go

Oh, well, baby, oh, well
Now now now now now...
Oh, baby, oh, well...
