Lyrics BLUES STAY AWAY FROM ME
BLUES WHY DON'T YOU LET ME BE.
DON'T KNOW WHY
YOU KEEP ON HAUNTING ME?

LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ME
TRUE LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ME.
SEEMS SOMEHOW WE NEVER CAN AGREE.

LIFE IS FULL OF MISERY
DREAMS ARE LIKE A MEMORY.
BRINGING BACK YOUR LOVE
THAT USED TO BE.

TEARS,
SO MANY I CAN'T SEE
YEARS
DON'T MEAN A THING TO ME.
TIME GOES BY
AND STILL I CAN'T BE FREE.

Lyrics YOU CAN READ IT
IN THE MORNING PAPER,
HEAR IT ON THE RADIO,
HOW CRIME
IS TAKING OUR NATION;
THIS WORLD
IS ABOUT TO GO.
WE NEED A GOOD OLD CASE
OF SALVATION,
AND GET THE LOVE OF GOD
IN OUR SOULS.
WE NEED A WHOLE LOT MORE OF JESUS
AND A LOT LESS
ROCK AND ROLL.

WE NEED MORE
OLD TIME CAMP MEETINGS
AND A LOT MORE
PRAYERS OF FAITH,
PRAYERS
THAT WILL MOVE A MOUNTAIN,
SAVE SOULS
FROM A BURNING LAKE,
WE NEED A GOOD OLD CASE
OF SALVATION,
AND THE LOVE OF GOD
IN OUR SOULS.
WE NEED A WHOLE LOT MORE OF JESUS
AND A LOT LESS
ROCK AND ROLL.

WE NEED MORE
OLD-FASHIONED PREACHERS
POURING OUT THEIR HEARTS
IN PRAYER,
AND WHEN
YOU'RE IN THEIR PRESENCE
YOU'LL KNOW
THAT THE LORD IS THERE.
WE NEED
A NATION-WIDE REVIVAL
TO GET THE LOVE OF GOD
IN OUR SOULS,
WE NEED A WHOLE LOT MORE OF JESUS
AND A LOT LESS
ROCK AND ROLL.

Lyrics verse 1:
THEY SAY
A LOVEBUG WILL GET YOU
AT THE AGE
OF FORTY THREE
I'M NOT TELLIN' MY AGE
BUT SOMETHING
GOT A HOLD OF ME.
I'M JUST CRAVIN'
SOME LOVIN'
IN THE OLD FASHIONED WAY,
HONEY,
LEND AN EAR
AND LISTEN
TO ALL I HAVE TO SAY:

Chorus:
WHY DON'T YOU HAUL OFF AND LOVE ME,
ONE MORE TIME,
WHY DON'T YOU SQUEEZE ME
UNTIL I'M TURNIN' BLIND,
IF YOU DON'T CUDDLE UP
AND LOVE ME
LIKE I WANT YOU TO DO,
I'M GONNA HAUL OFF
AND DIE OVER YOU.

verse 2:
NOW, DARLIN',
COME A LITTLE CLOSER
PUT YOUR LITTLE HAND
IN MINE.
LET ME FEEL YOUR ARMS
ABOUT ME, HONEY
PLEASE DON'T CHANGE
YOUR MIND.
FOR THE LOVESICK HEART'S
A-THROBBIN'
AS I HOLD YOU
CLOSE TO MINE.
I'M BOUND
TO HAVE A LOT OF LOVIN'
WAITIN' FOR ME
ON THE LINE.

Chorus

verse 3:
NOW, I CAN FEEL
YOUR WARM LIPS NEAR ME
HEAR YOUR BREATHIN'
SOFT AND FINE.
I CAN FEEL
THE MATRIMONY CRAWLIN'
UP AND DOWN MY SPINE.
I DON'T BELIEVE
THAT LOVE WILL HURT YOU
'CAUSE IT FEELS SO NICE
AND KIND
IT SEEMS MIGHTY CLOSE
TO HEAVEN
WHEN YOUR LOVE
IS ON THE LINE.

Chorus
