Sam Cooke - You Were Made For Me Lyrics




A fish was made to swim in the ocean
A boat was made to sale on the sea
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me
You were made for me.
A grape was made to grow on a vine
An apple was made to grow on a tree
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me

We'll have our quarrels and you will upset me
But what can I do?
You've been mine ever since I met you and I'll never leave you
No I'll never leave you
As sure as there’s a heaven up above me,
From you I know I'll never be free.
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me.

A fish was made to swim in the ocean
A boat was made to sail on the sea
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me
You were made for me
A grape was made to grow on a vine
An apple, an apple was made to grow on a tree
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me

We'll have our quarrels and you will upset me
But what can I do?
You've been mine ever since I met you and i'll never
Never leave you.

As sure as there’s a heaven up above me,
From you I know I'll never be free
As sure as there are stars above,
I know I know you were made for me

Sam Cooke You Were Made For Me Comments
  1. susan hess

    I wish my husband would sing this to me...............it would be just be the best day of my entire life.....we've been married 36 years, but I haven't felt his love, if I could just hear him sing this to me.............it would make the 36 years joyous to me. it would give me so much peace in my life. Sam Cooke is just a god..........I know he isn't alive..................but when I listen to his voice, I know I would love him. I wish my husband would feel this and sing this to me. I think my husband might THINK this..........but it is different...............to SAY THIS STUFF...........I just want to HEAR IT Just once in my life. I think he should ............it's been 36 years.....He's never SAID IT once,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but he has showed me..........I guess I just want to hear it.............just once...: )

    We "All" suffered a loss, when Mr. Sam Cooke left this earth. I was talking with Jimmy Hall, of "Wet Willie", fame, who often covers Mr. Sam Cooke's music, if he had in fact ever met the late great Soul artist, Jimmy's exact words to me were, "If I ever had the chance, then I would be in heaven myself !.!.! Yes, Sam Cooke was a blessing to this world, and me, an old white soul, retired military veteran, almost 70 years old feel, that yes Sam, A change is gonna come, indeed. I too, was born by a river. Thanks to all you folks, of all generations, and races for remembering and posting these superlative songs and videos of one of my all time favorites. Blues Fan from GA.

    Go ahead Brother Sam! I can't get over how nice he sang. The whole Black community was devastated when he was murdered.

    c b

    I agree somepeople were absolute racist to brown and black people just like that cracking bastard trump is these times no segregation is allowed for any blacks like it was in the 50s America. God bless Sam Cooke. You were right that his death was appalling and disgraceful to the black community
