Allman, Gregg - You've Really Got A Hold On Me Lyrics




I don't like you
But I love you
Seems like I'm always
Thinking of you
Though, oh, oh, you do me wrong, now
My love is strong now
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me

I don't want you
But I need you
Don't want to kiss you
But I need to
Though oh oh, you treat me badly
Lord I love you madly
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby
I love you
But all I want you to do is just
Hold me
Please
Hold me
Aw please
Hold me
Aw please
Hold me
Tighter

I want to leave you
Don't want to stay here
Don't want to spend
Another day here
Though oh oh, I want to split now
Lord, I just can't quit now
You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby
I love you
But all I want you to do is just
Hold me
Please
Hold me
Aw please
Hold me
Aw yeah
Hold me

You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me
You've really got a hold on me

Allman, Gregg You've Really Got A Hold On Me Comments
  1. Gayle Ash

    Gregg Allman was the talent in this couple. Cher has her talents, but, the disco queen couldn't measure up to Gregg Allman's genius.

  2. Jenneta Widner

    My favorite song ❤️😍

  3. Paul-E G'z

    I wonder what was better for greg, that first drip from the fishscale or chers slot

  4. Winston

    Flawless version

  5. Raven Whitechapel

    Best version

  6. WFOX44

    Gregg Allman was definitely a musical upgrade from Sony Bono, don't ya think ?

  7. Tanago Tempura

    "You can really see my......" publicity always publicity. You wonder why she was with Mr Allman.

  8. Alberto Arellano Fernández

    They were a great history in rock scene!

  9. Randy Cox

    Olive......dropping guard...to help

  10. DICKY CAMPILONGO

    great smokey robinson song

  11. Irisheyzgrl24 Murphy

    Every picture I've ever seen of them together , it looked like Cher really loved Greg. I'd read somewhere that Greg seen Cher in a big hotel & he flipped when he seen her and then asked her out.. They did have a love story.

  12. Jana Zaki

    Fabulous absouletly. Huge Fan of Greg Allman since age 12 Iwas excited to hear they would Marry. You have to read his autobiography "Not My Cross to Bear" he wrote a chapter on CHER and their Life together, its hysterical. A LOVE STORY indeed/

  13. Brian Heard

    Wow, Cher really belts it out. Her voice went to another level when she was with this man.

  14. JON DOE

    One of the best songs ever written and they did a good job with it, especially the harmony.

  15. M T

    Cher invented autotune GregjustRawDog😎

  16. Jennifer Saccenti

    Perfect blending of voices

  17. Estella Menchaca

    R.I.P Greg Allman

  18. Tameko Wood

    There vocals were awesome when singing in harmony together.

  19. Michael Luczak

    They fought over each other's hair conditioner.

  20. Mara More

    Rest in peace, Gregg Allman. My sympathies to Elijah Blue Allman, Layla Allman, Michael Allman, and the other siblings.

  21. Elenka M

    Their voices really complimented each others...RIP Greg Allman

    Nosferatu 85

    Elenka M Their album has gotten so much crap over the years but it is an amazinggg record... from start to finish!

  22. davesworld day by day

    with brother now.

  23. Frances Cook

    :(.. wow this was good.. sleep well Gregg

  24. Maxwell Clark

    i don't like it,
    but i love it.

  25. Norma Gilpin

    I think they're both geniuses - different talents perhaps - but they've both got "that something" that connects with listeners.

  26. Phil OMalley

    Gregg you will be missed
    Rest in peace. Cher is cool. This seems like a misfire tho

  27. GOLDENFLY WARRIOR

    RIP Gregg Allman. You were a great talent. The 70's wouldn't had been the same without him and the band. It was a damn shame that Duane died so young and then Berry Oakley was also killed in a motorcycle accident very close to the location of Duane's wreck the following year in 1972. RIP Gregg. Cause of deathComplications from liver cancer

  28. Dorian Lovell

    Beautiful..... Just f-ing BEAUTIFUL... Two beautiful icons. You can see how much these two icons loved and adored each other here. It was a very deep love...

  29. Dazed Hippie

    Rest in peace Greg Allman
    Pompano Beach Florida

  33. Patricia Peoples

    Cher, I spoke with you impromptu one day about my memories of yours and Greg's relationship, during the Midnight Rider commercial era, here, on Youtube. I wanted to express my condolences to you and to your son, Elijah Blue. I am praying with you both. Stay the way you've always been ~ Strong. Love, Patti.

  34. Porkchop's Papi

    One of my favorite's​. But there's an old rumor that he & share gave up they're drug dealer to avoid jail.

  35. rosalyn keith

    Cher did not do drugs, need I say more.

  36. Cousin Figel

    CHER WAS PURE HOLLYWOOD, GREGG WAS A COUNTRY BOY AT HEART, AFTER THEY WERE MARRIED, GREGG WANTED TO MOVE BACK TO GEORGIA, AND HAVE A LAID BACK LIFE, BUT CHER DID NOT WANT ANY PART OF THAT..SHE COULD NOT LEAVE HOLLY WIERD, BUT I LOVE THIS ALBUM, IT IS GREAT, COUSIN FIGEL

    King Kami

    Cousin Figel damn, you talk like you lived with them.

    Cousin Figel

    King Kami, I did not live with them but I knew Gregg, R.I.P. BROTHER, NOW YOU ARE WITH YOUR DAD THAT, YOU NEVER KNEW AND MAMA '''A'', AND YOUR BROTHER OF THE ROAD DUANE, BERRY OAKLEY, BUTCH TRUCKS, YOUR MUSIC WILL LIVE ON AND BE PLAYED FOREVER, MY CONDOLENCES GO OUT TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, COUSIN FIGEL

  37. Gail Davidson

    sonny couldn't sing Cher made him sound as good as he did which wasn't very good

    Le'Vin Moser

    Gail Davidson Uh, this isn't Sonny. That's Gregg and Cher almost completely screwed up his career. He's a musical genius.

  38. 22mountainman

    This song sounds like they are dying. Gregg Allman was so off key. Not a lasting duet, either musically or in real life. One thing that does not have a hold on me is this version.LOL

    dean bagley

    he isnt "off key " @ all

  39. Kathleen Sander

    He's not as good with her as Sonny, but I love the song.

  40. Laurie Roland

    I loved Cher with Greg....I thought they'd make it!!!! too bad,,,2 good people....

  41. Margaret Szuky

    HOW COME THERE ISN'T ANY "FOOTAGE" OF THEM SINGING THIS??!!!!!

  42. Sharon Utley

    This is news to me and I love it!

    KT Brooke

  49. leon beverly

    Of all my 60's and 70's loves in music duets, greg and Cher, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Arron Nevelle and Linda Rondstead, james Taylor and Carol King., these hearts will forever bear my cross and my soul.

    Deborah Bergen

    +leon beverly
    Well said!

  50. J. de Molay

    The most awful version of this song I have ever heard. :(

  51. Julia S

    blackeyeddog
    I couldn't have said it better myself,,Gregg Allman is an American icon 100% musical genius... Cher is about 90% plastic, that's about it.

    TRUTH BE TOLD

    Sooooo, what's in YOUR wallet?

    Angela Jackson

    Gregg stayed true to who he was never let on to anyone he was someone are something that he didn't want to be he was nothing but a good old southern boy who we love dearly in Macon Ga

    MichaelRMcCoy

    Cher obviously doesn't fit into a narrow-minded pigeonhole, but she's carried herself well, weathered much adversity, (dyslexia for one), and managed her own career through the music, stage, film and TV industries.
    From her earliest interviews, Cher has openly spoken of her disdain for illegal drugs and strongly supports monogamy and personal responsibility.
    A few highlights:
    Sonny and Cher charted ten Billboard top 40 singles between 1965 and 1972, including five top-ten singles: "I Got You Babe", "Baby Don't Go", "The Beat Goes On", "All I Ever Need Is You", and "A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done". At one point, they had five songs in the top 50 at the same time, a feat equaled only by the Beatles and Elvis Presley. By the end of 1967, they had sold 40 million records worldwide and had become, according to Time magazine's Ginia Bellafante, rock's "it" couple.
    Shortly following Sonny's death in 1998, Cher published The First Time, a collection of autobiographical essays of "first-time" events in her life, which critics praised for revealing the singer to be down to earth and genuine
    Her 2002–2005 Living Proof: The Farewell Tour became one of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time, earning $250 million.
    Closer to the Truth, Cher's 25th studio album and the first since 2001's Living Proof, entered the Billboard 200 at number three in October 2013, her highest position on that chart to date. Michael Andor Brodeur from The Boston Globe commented that "Cher's 'Goddess of Pop' sash remains in little danger of undue snatching; at 67, she sounds more convincing than J-Lo or Madonna reporting from 'the club'".
    Cher's primary philanthropic endeavors have included support of health research and patients' quality of life, anti-poverty initiatives, veterans rights, and vulnerable children.
    The Cher Charitable Foundation supports international projects such as the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Operation Helmet, and the Children's Craniofacial Association.
    According to Goldmine magazine's Phill Marder, Cher "has been and remains today one of the Rock Era's most dominant figures". He described her as the leader of an effort in the 1960s to "advance feminine rebellion in the rock world [and] the prototype of the female rock star ..."
    Cher has won a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, an Academy Award, three Golden Globe Awards, a Cannes Film Festival Award, and a special CFDA Fashion Award, among several other honors. She has sold 100 million records worldwide to date, becoming one of the best-selling music artists in history.
    She is the only artist to date to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in each decade from the 1960s to the 2010s.

  53. Learning More

    The idiocy of youth!!

  54. Learning More

  55. Vivien

  56. 16nowhereman

    Does Cher still go for young kids?

  57. Catherine S. Todd

    One of the best songs I've ever heard Cher do. Never heard this version before as a duet with her and Greg!

  58. driver3596

    Gregg Allman - blues rock genius, great keyboard player, masterful songwriter, phenomenal singer.  I could listen to him all day long.
    Cher - glorified lounge singer.  I could listen to her for about 15 minutes.

    TRUTH BE TOLD

    dismay~ And YET, you took the time and the effort to respond to my words. So, apparently they weren't worthless to YOU. LOL

    Renee Jacks

    they both are very talented People!! love them!!! well said lol..

    MrVidaeverdade

    Wow, that's one incredibly rich lounge singer!

    HFTONE

    I do listen to him all day long, just about every day. Call me close minded... I really don't care. He was that good.

  59. john e Lawler

    brilliant & nice tits as well lol

  60. stoneprincess

    Gregg has that sexy whiskey-soaked voice.  Such a great singer.  Cher always dominates when she sings.  Gregg is much more subtle.

  61. Doug J

    Its amazing what men will do for some prime poontang. Give em hell Greg

    Catherine S. Todd

    "Its amazing what men will do for some prime" DRINKING AND DRUGGING. Sorry, 
    Doug. You are blaming the wrong person here.

    Joseph Winters

    +Catherine S. Todd life is funny, sometimes we learn alot, for our mistakes, it's funny the feeling goes.

  62. TIMOTHY.BURKE LINES

    southern men like it under the lilths

  63. Dallas Michael

    love it! i have the vinyl album :)

  64. cheri capistrano

    i jst love this song&i really love this cover  <3

  65. Strangleholdintn

    Gregg is the music GENIUS  in that pair

  66. jerry j

    Terrible album,almost as bad as their marriage.

  67. David Shanks

    Gregg is still the better musician! Cher has sex appeal, Gregg has heart behind his song writing and playing. Cher has never written anything. Gregg is the one in the Rock & roll hall of fame. I do not see cher on that list......

    tudorhistoryguy

    She actually wrote a whole album in the 90s.

  68. David Shanks

    You really need to listen to the vocal. Gregg blows Cher away! Of course neither one of them holds up to the original!!!!

  69. selina connell

    luv Luv this entire record have it and still play it so need CD.........

  70. Emanuel Drew EA

    That sick! undundred time more batter Sonny!

  71. George Hirst

    None of those songs, albums you mentioned after 1979 made a dent on the US billboard charts. Black Rose in 1980 was popular in the UK but America didn't except CHER at this time as a rocker like she wanted. Some of the tracks were really good! "Take me Home" incidentally crossed over to the R&B charts which was kind of cool! GREAT song!

  72. George Hirst

    The new single," Woman's world" comes out on Monday. CHER will perform the single on "The Voice". I hope she doesn't pretend sing but I'm fairly sure she will since the song has a lot of techno effects. CHER did not chart after 1979 and the release of "Take me Home" until 1987 with "I found someone". She was absent musically for 8 years. That's along time for a popular singing. During that absence she was working on her film career. It didn't happen over night.

  73. P3SuperBee

    Died in the 80's??? Guess you missed the 20 singles that charted on Billboard in the 90's...Or the eight in the 00's, and and the two thus far in the 10's... She, and only She has has charted a #1 single in each of the last 6 decades. 10's, 00's, 90's, 80's, 70's & 60's... Sounds like a dead career to me. Not to mention the Grammy, Emmy & 3 Gold Globes sitting next to Oscar on the mantle. And there is the album hitting the streets next week.

  74. Mickey T

    I have never heard this before, thanks for posting. Nice and somehow a little dirty. I like it. loll

  75. kandy langford

    Only listened cause of the pictures. She's gorgeous & he's the sexy bad boy as ever. Do enjoy the photo shoot - stunning...

    p.s. Watch her do "I'm No Angel" - what was she ever thinking?

  76. George Hirst

    CHER had a solo song on the album, Island which is one of her best. Sadly, nobody heard it because the LP flopped. CHER has no consistency with successful releases. Her music career died in the early 80's. Once she started making films and they were successful, she won an Oscar..... renewed interest in her music began. She has had lots of hits records. She's a stylist not a great singer. Every once in awhile she'll record a song and she sounds amazing."The way of love" really proved that.(1972)

  77. Gatamona1945

    With! He's was a bad boy....

  78. Gatamona1945

    He was just touch for her to deal

  79. Justin Mattes

    They destroyed this song Smokey must have sh&* a brick when he heard it. The piano is BURIED

  80. curtisstroud3

    Great shot of cher's tits ipat 1.00

  84. Josh Knight

  85. Vic L

    I love this song! :) They both have great voices, but I think Cher is a better singer.

  86. Laurieb2851

    Love this! Cher is gorgeous in this picture.

  87. Josh Knight

    Didnt Sonny and Cher record the same song?

  88. kissed61

    Gregg didn't like her singing voice, he thought it sounded too contrived

  89. Kimfosterga

    THANK YOU so much that somebody finally posted this! This album is the bomb and everybody with any sense knows it.

  90. Oceangirl Lorna

    Great time for the two of them..to sing their hears out together,,to bad their relationship didnt work out, but they were Blessed with a beautiful son ELIJAH BLUE ...so they have a lifetime connection due to their son,,God Bless them ..

  91. Blue Smoke

    I don't think so, Cher's voice is better than him!

    Julia S

    Raffaele... Sorry to hear of your hearing impairment.

  92. Blue Smoke

    Are you kidding me?

  93. Ron B

    She shouldn't sing with someone who has a much better voice than hers.

  94. Ron B

    He sounds really good but she sounds ...well just bad

  95. joy schlomer

    My two favorite celebrities ever yeah!

  96. M.McK

    Good version. Bad relationship.
