Green, Al - Strong As Death (Sweet As Love) Lyrics




Strong as death, sweet as love
with the grace, of a dove
Oh baby
Let me in your life

We don't have that much time
There's no need in us crying
Hey baby
I'm in the mood for love

If I could tell a story
Of just how it was
Before there was you and me
Before there was love
It was a sad affair

I got to go ahead with myself
Before I find [?]
Help me off the shelf
Sweet baby

One more thing I got to say
Strong as death,
You're a power to be
Sweet as love,
To you and me
Hey baby
Take a chance on me

Strong as death, sweet as love

Hey let me just sing
Strong as death, honey, sweet as love
Strong as death, honey, sweet as love

Strong as love, sweet as love
ah, you're playing to much music for me

  1. Linda Thomas

    My God I love this man's body of work ! He is just phenomenal and Sexy as hell if I may add. He's the best to ever touch a mic.

  2. DO IT WELL

    Part of A.G.'s humiliation ritual to get out of the industry...

  3. Henry Gee

    This is the Purest Track that made Al Green the Official King of Memphis and RNB Undisputed women throws their clothes undergarments he is rated R&B sick people lose their Spirits when he sang I disputed you talking about all the neutrons and electrons Al Green has the power of high frequency ASE' Consciousness ASE' I sat in an locust and awakened all my Ancestors alive from the cosmos within ASE'!

    Always one of my favorites! Superb song & record with his voice, The Hodges brothers doing their thing & Willie Mitchell's production!

  11. Jonathan Brown

    KGB - Bless Ya Life sampled

  12. house money

    He should have an unsung or something. With all of this great music, there's gotta be an incredibly interesting story behind his career! Let's not wait until...

  13. maria santana

    found it in the good old public library in cincinnati ohio,

  14. J KHiLaH

    Simply a beautiful tune! God Bless

  15. David Mack

    This song was for his girlfriend Mary Woodson. On the same night this song was recorded she threw a pot of hot grits on Al for turning down her marriage proposal. Immediately after she ran into the bedroom and committed suicide with Greens gun.

    Mariama Sillah

    This is true..also she had come into the studio drunk as skunk..Willie Mitchell said they had seen her laid out..Carlotta Williams, a delta airlines steward, was in the studio that night as well, she had befriended Al on his many travels..they both got in his Rolls Royce and headed to his 21 room mansion ..Al had already warned both nothing kinky was going to occur..as Carlotta went to freshen up Mary went to the kitchen to prepare the very thing that would change his life forever..he went up to shower and relax when she had asked him that..he rejected and said let's talk about that in the morning..next thing when he turned away he was all in it..went into the next room while Carlotta was nursing him throwing cold water then BOOM BOOM she was done..Oct 18, 1974

    Buckeyecat2002

    She threw the grits because Reverend Al refused to marry her. Al Green would learn after Woodson's death, that she was, in fact, already married with four children. On the night of the suicide, Green' platonic friend, flight attendant Carlotta Williams was also spending the night at Green's home. Williams came to Green's aid. While she helped him, they heard the gun fire from the suicide. -rewindingblack dot com

    Don't know the real details, but from my understanding is she was already married and having an affair with THE GOOD REV, I saw an interview with the man that was supposed to be her husband, and AL supposedly gave him a cash settlement. IF SHE WAS MY WIFE HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH HIM, NO I WOULDN'T WANT HIM IN JAIL, I WANT THE MONEY, SHE WAS CHEATING AND GOT KILLED SO WHAT, GIVE ME THE CASH, CAUSE I WOULDN'T WANT HER ANYMORE ANYWAY

    BULLSHIT........

    Linda Thomas

    That's not a true statement ! The incident ( tragedy ) occurred 1974 . It was quite sad wasn't it ? She was married, with 4 children. The song your refering to is Sha La La ( and I love you ).

  16. Mark Birkes

    Wasted as a B side... tune !..

    I Love this song. Al green is amazing. His music just brightens your day, I grew up listening to him. My mother and Father use to always play his music. His music makes me think about my uncle C.W R.I.P but its all filled with good loving memories.

  32. Berlin Beatz

    @MxHaZem0nKeY the most time you need for is to find a really good sample! to produce a song is not so complicated as finding a "new hit sample"
    everything what sounds good could be a good beat
