Coe, David Allan - Pledging My Love Lyrics

Forever my darling our love will be true always and forever I'll love only you
Just promise me darling your love in return
Make this fire in my soul dear forever burn
My heart's at your command dear to keep love and to hold
Making you happy's my desire dear loving you is my goal
I'll forever love you the rest of my days I'll never part from you and your loving ways

My heart's at your command...
This is my last letter end of the song my life is so miserable I can't go on

  6. Curt Ekstrom

    I have this Album for sale. Played only once when I taped it into Reel to Reel. Has not been played since 1978. Not Scratches.

  7. gdh1984

    That takes me back to putting one in the chamber and everybody laughing and saying "aww he's just drunk and stupid" then laughing along with the demons comforting me saying "you hear all these cocksuckers? Lmmfao!!! Listen to them laugh" then when I cocked the hammer back they all said "no! You crazy bastard!" but I pulled the trigger and it just said "click" but it was 6 to 1 odds. They beat my ass and said I was sick... One pussy puked in the corner... Which spoke volumes saying "is your life different than mine?" real and death stares at us laughing saying "really? Show me" I wanted to die then all because of what everybody thought, fuck them...

  8. Stevie Jo

    As he knows..its no where close to the original. But it's good.

  9. William Thieshen

    One of the last true outlaw country singers first time I've heard this by him!

OYeah I was also in S,C,I.. which is the prison he is talking about in the song Lancaster's. located in Lancaster OHIO....

  47. lawyerep

    I was 9 in 1955 and have always loved this song. Simple lyrics, simple melody, but such a wonderful song. As an amateur guitar player and singer I love to play this song.

  48. Kevin Dupre

    reminding me of my soon to be ex wife, Naomi, 😢

  58. alrick wright

    every one is racist

    rick james

    Do you even realize this is a Johnny ace song and Johnny Ace was a black man? Guess raciest jokes are only funny from black comic's right? Dude this isnt 1930 any more...times change, get over it.

    T Bone

    I would say every one has prejudices but not racism. Racism is reserved for the select dumb asses. In Heaven there is no white church, black church, yellow church, red church or brown church. There will only be the blood bought church of Jesus Christ. Nuff Sed.

  59. karen Loucks

    love this song...thanks johnny ace....touches deep

  60. Gustavo Hernandez

    it sounds like you're the one who is a racist.... think about it

  61. cindy Queen

    Isn't he a racist?

    James Milton

    cindy Queen not at all, his x rated songs were all just for fun and he's said himself that he's not a racist. even his drummer was a black man during that time

    Steven D

    why because hes white.

    Johnathon Mcdaniel

    cindy Queen no Johnny rebel his old song writer was However he isn't he grandchild is half black and he speaks highly of his grandkids. dac is a blues singer it would be a oxymoron to be racist

  62. Arabion knight

    johnny ace was tipsy and he was playing Russian roulette, back stage while talking to big mama thoughton. she sang. you ain't nothing but a hound dog, about 10 years before Elvis Presley. and way rhe gun went off. also latasha lee age 32 from Texas dogs a beautiful renditions of the song. plus see is very polite on the eyes.

    james boyer

    That is the official version, however there are those who feel the police had something to do with this, we know this could not have happened, a Texas cop shooting a black entertainer, racist police in Texas, really? Read the book, The Thin Blue Line and form your own opinion.

  63. Arabion knight

    johnny ace was tipsy and he was playing Russian roulette, back stage while talking to big mama thoughton. she sang. you ain't nothing but a hound dog, about 10 years before Elvis Presley. and way rhe gun went off. also latasha lee age 32 from Texas dogs a beautiful renditions of the song. plus see is very polite on the eyes.

  64. Steve

    life is barely worth living

    Johnny Rocco

    stop thinking that way. It can get better, but you have to want it. I know this because i too was once just barely holding on. You have to try, try again, if all you do is lose, you have to find a way to win. may God Bless you.

    Nikola Nedeljkovic

    Life has no meaning, and that alone is the only reason worth living for.

  65. Audio Garden

    this just broke my fucking heart made me think of my ex.. But after a while crying feels numb also

  66. Irish American

    At the end of this song I'm taking my revolver and killing myself. So long people..

    Personal Jesus

    Are you doing OK


    so long, paddy

    Conway Conway

    You dumb fuck if I could find you I would whip your ass 0for even thinking about killing yourself,suicide isn't nothing to make fun of or to poke fun at...ive lost 2 faimly members due to that kinda shit and have talked a quite a few others including myself out of killing them selves over the by the time I was done with you suicide would be the furthest thing from your ever loving mind....just a big ole county boy from s.e.missouri


    R.I.P man.

  67. Loren Muskett

    My dad sings this song to my mother, all the time. Love my mom.

  68. Elaine Pohl

    A very beautiful song and melody.

  69. Charles Marshall

    The best version of Johnnie Ace's song!

    Edward Elson

    Elvis Presley version is the best


    @Edward Elson Nah I agree with David AC love Elvis but Brother David owns this..

    Adonis Theseus Machiavelli

    Best version other than johnny ace himself

    chris wilson

  90. snicker9400

    i thought it was accidental- ??

  91. charles hansen

    Never knew it was a suicide note now it brings tears to my eyes R.I.P Jonny Ace

    chris wilson

    charles hansen What are you talking about? Johnny Ace accidentally shot himself in the head while playing with his gun in front some friends. It wasn’t a suicide.

  92. JLHunt

    I always wondered if he said moments or months before. As months would be closer to the truth.

  93. wasteland70

    I'm 42 and, frankly, ashame of myself for not hearing this until now. Such a marvelous, beautiful, longing and painful song.
