Ray Charles – Let Me Love You lyrics

Oh, hey, y'all
This is brother Ray
I got something I wanna
Talk to you about

I'm tired of running
From town to town
Now I'm ready to stop, y'all
And settle down

Cause it's a life of misery
When you're alone
And I've got to have somebody
To call my own

Oh, baby, let me love you
Whoa, baby, I wanna love you
I need to love you, girl

I'll be your water
When your well goes dry
And your good loving man, honey
Til the day I die

I'll be your shelter, yes, I will
Whenever it rains
And like Dr. Feelgood
I can ease your pain

Hey, baby, I wanna love you
Whoa, baby
I've got to love you, girl
I need to love you

Listen here
I need you and want you
So come on, girl
Let's find some happiness
In this old world

Lord knows I'm gonna carry you
Baby, by myself
I've got to have you
And nobody else

Oh, baby, I wanna love you
Whoa, baby
I need to love you, girl
I've got to love you

Now come here, baby
Why don't you hold my hand
You know I'm gonna do
The very best I can

Lord knows I need you
Right by my side, girl
With love and affection
To keep me satisfied

Oh, Lord, I'm tired of running
From town to town
That's why I want you, girl
To help me settle down

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Oh, baby, looking so good...
