I Can't Turn You Loose

Lyrics: Otis Redding
Music: Otis Redding

Played at least once by the Keith & Donna Band with Jerry sitting in. Not yet checked against a tape.

I can't turn you loose
If I do I'm gonna lose my life
I can't never turn you loose
If I do I'm gonna lose my life
I can't turn you loose to nobody
'Cause I love you baby, yes I do
Hip shakin' mama, I told ya
I'm in love with only you
Baby do it baby why don't ya
I'm gonna give you everything that you want

I gotta gotta gotta
Keep on runnin' baby
Never, never gonna turn you loose
Keep on, keep on holding on
Gotta gotta

I cant turn you loose
Im in love with the prettiest thing
I never, never turn you loose
Because of the sweet love she brings
I said I cant turn you loose to nobody baby
I love you baby, yes I do
Hip shaking mama I love you
Im in love with only you
Honey baby do it baby why dont ya
And Im gonna give you everything that you want

Gotta gotta gotta
Keep, keep on holdin on
Never gonna turn you loose
Never gonna lose you baby
Gotta gotta

I can't turn you loose
I'm never gonna turn you loose
I'm gonna keep holdin' on
I can't turn you loose
Gonna keep a grip on you
I can't turn you loose
Early in the morning I love you only
Never gonna turn you loose
[etc]
