Candi Staton - Sweet Feeling Lyrics

You picked me up
Oh, yes you did
When nobody else would
I know you did

And you did things
For me, my baby
That nobody else could
I know you did

You gave me your heart
But I couldn't be true
But I still got that
Same sweet feeling for you
Sweet baby, mmm

We had a love
Oh, yes, we did
Beyond compare
I know we did

And when I needed you
Oh, Lordy
You were always there
I know you were

I had my chance
But I couldn't come through
Now I still got that
Same sweet feeling for you
Sweet baby, oh, yeah

I got that feeling
When I hear your name
That old lonesome feeling
Keep coming back again

I get that feeling
And I cry out in the night
I need you, baby, oh, darling
To say everything's all right

Come back, baby, oh, yeah
Where you belong
I hope you will

Please forgive me
Oh, darling
For doing you wrong
I hope you will

I'm so sorry for all
The pain I put you through
But I still got that
Same sweet feeling for you
Sweet baby, mmm

I got that feeling
Everything I do
I get that feeling
For nobody but you

Sometime in the midnight hour
I get so lonesome
I need you, baby
I need you, baby

I need you, baby
To stay right here by my side
I need you, baby...

    This song brings so many memories. I was a teenager in high school listening to my radio on New Orleans radio WYLD-AM 940. I lived in a small town just 30 miles out of the city. It made the hair stand up on my head then and still does now. It sounds so fresh.
    I knew this was special even though I had never experienced love and heartbreak....yet. I've been in love with her ever since......and I still am. You GOTTA feel it to appreciate MUSCLE SHOALS SOUND.
