I Need Some Loving Loving

entry picture

I need some loving loving to help me sleep at night
I need some loving loving to make me feel alright 
I need some loving loving to help me see the light

My heart is shattered - it's broken right in two 
My woman she done me wrong - what am I to do
Here I sit all alone languishing in jail
Listen friend you can learn from me - let me tell my tale

Life was good and I was cool hanging with my crew
Then I heard a rumour about my lady - my mind it just blew
I went to see some fancy dude on the other side of town
Out came my 357 magnum - and man I shot him down

I need some loving loving to get me through the day
I need some loving loving as I kneel down to pray
I need some loving loving what more can I say

The police they picked me up from a downtown bar
I was in a sorry state - drinking whisky from a jar
Now I'm standing in the dock and the judge he says to me
Life means life brother - we ain't never gonna set you free

My world is all messed up but I have found the Lord 
Hallelujah Jesus loves me - let me climb on board 
Give me just one more chance - and I won't misbehave 
Sing out loud the inscription that is written on my grave

I need some loving loving that's where I want to be
I need some loving loving to set my spirit free
I need some loving loving for all eternity
