Stone, Joss - The Chokin' Kind Lyrics




I only meant to love you
Didn't you know it babe
Didn't you know it
Why couldn't you be content
With the love I gave oh yeah
I gave you my heart
But you wanted my mind, oh yeah
Your love scares me to death, boy
Oh it's the chokin kind
That's all it is

You can kill a girl
With a bottle of poison or a knife
I know you can
I'll hurt her more to take her pride
And ruin her life
Oh it's a shame boy
Whatever it is boy
I surely hope you find, oh yeah
I tell you that hat don't fit my head
Oh, it's the chokin kind

It makes me wanna mmm mmm mmm mmm
When you fall in love again boy
Take a tip from me oh yeah
If you don't like the peach, walk on by the tree
That's what you better do, honey
Find what you want boy
Keep it, treat it, sweet and kind, oh yeah
Oh let it breathe, don't go making it the chokin kind
Oh no, don't break your heart baby
Oh no, I know you love me really I do, honey
I tell you your love scares me to death boy
It's the chokin kind
That's all it is
I got to say it again
It's that old chokin kind

    johnny taylor is laughing

  31. nichole g

    love this song so much. relate to the lyrics

  32. Andrew Neidich

    You can almost hear how young she is here - like she's not sure of what her voice can and cannot do. But that's part of the charm of it, for me. As a grown up, lol, she seems pretty damn sure what her voice is going to do. And, hopefully, how to take care of it so she can be singing for a long time to come.

    Kay See

    Andrew Neidich
    A to the dam man. She did her thing. Love it

  33. Tamieke Jones

    why couldn't you be content with the love I gave

  34. Arcadio K

    kocham to...i love i't

  35. Shawn Brock

    Harlan Howard wrote it, Waylon did it first in '67. Joe Simon recorded it in '69. They all did great versions of it because it's a great song.

    Nancy Conyers

    As in Waylon Jennings???

    DaOvaseea

    Yes, Waylon Jennings. & I add ZZ Hill's 1971 version (which may actually be my favorite) to this mix as well. Such a timeless song.

    Melvin Bridgewater

    Thanks For The Info

  36. Lingo

    Love it

  37. Jo Joe TV

    powerful lyrics

  38. Daniel Barry

    Shez daH shit,gota LuV Joss Stone N dont U 4got it

  39. BigManTv1

    VERY GOOD STUFF!(Ezz!)

  40. Chad Smith

    Waylon? Big Waylon fan, but this song is soul, not country. Look up the Joe Simon version.

  41. Steph Notell

    Waylon should sue for what? Waylon remade Joe Simon's hit of this song which Joss does a LOT closer to the original than Waylon when he did it like a country song.

  42. David Arjona

    be quiet honey
