Let Me Go, Lover – Song Lyric Sunday – Let It Go IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/27/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen gave us the prompt of ‘Let It Go’. Thanks, Helen!

This one turned out to be hard for me. All I could hear in my head after reading the prompt was that song from the movie, “Frozen”, which was “Let It Go”. After googling for awhile, I didn’t see anything that seemed to fit, at least to my way of thinking. Finally, this very old classic popped into my mind. I don’t know why, as I’ve not heard or thought about this song in forever.

Instead of letting ‘it’ go it is about letting go of a lover, because it’s just not working out. Maybe?

Anyway, enjoy this oldie from long ago.

“Let Me Go, Lover”, by Patti Page is her cover version of the song, which was sung originally by Joan Weber. It was written by Jenny Lou Carson, and Al Hill, and topped the Billboard charts in 1954. It’s on the Mercury label.

I listened to the original one, and I like this one better, and is probably the one I used to hear on the radio.

Oh, let me go
Let me go
Let me go, lover
Let me be
Set me free
From your spell

You made me weep
Cut me deep
I can’t sleep, lover
I was cursed
From the first
Day I fell

You don’t want me
But you want me
To go on wanting you
Now I pray that
You will say that
We’re through

Please turn me loose
What’s the use?
Let me go, lover
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go

You made me weep
Cut me deep
I can’t sleep, lover
I was cursed
From the first
Day I fell

You don’t want me
But you want me
To go on wanting you
Now I pray that
You will say that
We’re through

Please turn me loose
What’s the use?
Let me go, lover
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go

  1. I thought of Let It Go, too, but thought others would post that so I didn’t. I’ve not heard this blast from the past! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks, Mer! I probably heard this on our old radio that my mom always listened to, too. I like rock music, but sometimes it’s nice to slow down and hear some songs like this one, too. 🙂
