JJ Cale - You Keep Me Hangin' On Lyrics

Every time I stop awhile
Think about your sweet smile
I can't do nothing else all day

The way that you wink your eye
Every time you walk by
Baby what can I say

You keep me hanging on
I can't get nothing else on

When the evening rolls around
And there ain't nobody around
Baby, I think of you

Of all the stars at night
None can match the brilliant light
That I see in your eyes

The humble warmth, the glow
Baby child I know, I still think of you

You keep me hanging on
I can't get nothing else on

If I could hold you just one time
Stop that moment in my mind

    Too beautiful. . . the melody as well as the lyrics. So beautiful that it made me cry when I first listened in my 20's. J.J. Cale . He was a true poet. He was the songwriter who made lovely songs more than any one else in the U.S.
