Bonnie Raitt - Give It Up Or Let Me Go Lyrics




Well, I told you pretty baby, such a long time ago,
If I found you with another, well I'd walk right out your door,
Woh, you might call me crazy, but there's one thing you should know,
Oh honey, if you want me to love you,
You've got to give it up or let me go.

I know it's useless to be jealous, I couldn't tire you if I tried,
But when I think of you messing behind my back
It brings a pain I just can't hide.
Oh baby, I've been true to you.
And if I can make that sacrifice, honey you can do it too.

Well, you come home drunk and nasty, you won't tell me where you've been.
Just when things are nice and sweet, you go back out again.
Why do you wanna mess up a good thing?
I'm gonna find me another man, one who wants to give me everything.

Well, I told you pretty baby, such a long time ago,
If I found you with another, well I'd walk right out your door.
Woh, you might call me crazy, but there's one thing you should know.
Oh honey, if you want me to love you,
You've got to give it up or let me go.

Bonnie Raitt Give It Up Or Let Me Go Comments
  1. Orest Zarowsky

    Oh GOD have mercy. What a brilliant voice. Thank You that You have not taken her away like Janis.

  2. Elisa Foster

    Can somone explain to me why WHY this song is not played on a regular basis on the radio?

  3. Brian Cullen

    My mom used to lay this vinyl. Didn’t like it then. Love it now.

  4. 4Veritas

    I bought this on vinyl in the 70's but I have no idea where I would have heard her, not on the radio in Buffalo. Nevertheless, she had a concert at Shay's Buffalo and my friend who never heard of her agreed to go with me. Great music.

    Greg Fisher

    Saw her in the Filmore Cafeteria at UB with Freebo 1970 or 1971.

  5. Lawrence Fitton

    my fav from bonnie raitt!

  6. Einhänder

    i feel like she sings a lot like RL Burnside here. But I dunno if RL Burnside had any significant influences on his vocal style or what

  7. Patrick Reilly

    This swings

  8. Les Freligh

    I think I've been a fan since before she ever released an album! Back when she used to play with the old blues guys (practicing her chops), but I used to have every album that woman made. Home Plate was another great back in the day ;)
