  • Don't pull your love out on me, baby
    If you do, then I think that maybe
    I'll just lay me down, cry for a hundred years
    Don't pull your love out on me, honey
    Take my heart, my soul, my money
    But don't leave me here drowning in my tears

    You say you're gonna leave, gonna take that big white bird,
    Gonna fly right out of here without a single word
    But you know you'll break my heart when I watch you close that door
    Cause I know I won't see you anymore

    Don't pull your love out on me, baby
    If you do, then I think that maybe
    I'll just lay me down, cry for a hundred years
    Don't pull your love out on me, honey
    Take my heart, my soul, my money
    But don't leave me here drowning in my tears

    Haven't I been good to you, what about that brand new ring?
    Doesn't that mean love to you, doesn't that mean anything?
    If I threw away my pride and I got down on my knees,
    Would you make me beg you "pretty please"?

    Don't pull your love out on me, baby
    If you do, then I think that maybe
    I'll just lay me down, cry for a hundred years
    Don't pull your love out on me, honey
    Take my heart, my soul, my money
    But don't leave me here drowning in my tears

    There's so much I want to do
    I've got love enough for two
    And I'll never use it, girl, if I don't have you Writer/s: BRIAN POTTER, DENNIS EARLE LAMBERT

  • Patrick from Great State Of TexasI had the opportunity to sing this song to my Aunt on her hospital bed week before she passed. I was joined by my cousin and my sister in the singing. This had to be one of the most epic moments in my life being able to perform to my Aunt.

    This truly is a happy song.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn June 12th 1971, Hamilton, Joe Frank, and Reynolds performed "Don't Pull Your Love" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    One month earlier on May 16th, 1971 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #90; and on July 11th it peaked at #4 (for 2 weeks) and spent 14 weeks on the Top 100 (and for 6 of those 14 weeks it was on the Top 10)...
    On the same 'Bandstand' show the trio also performed "Annabella"; it entered the Top 100 on August 22nd and eventually it reached #46...
    R.I.P. Dan Hamilton, lead singer & guitarist, 1946 - 1994.
  • Jerro from New Alexandria, PaI have a feeling that this is one of those songs that many people love to sing and listen to but are too embarrassed to admit so. That's how I feel about this song.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhI agree with the comments from Kevin from Reading PA about this song. There is such a richness to the singer's voice.
  • Mark from Sierra Madre, CaI mentioned the H,JF&R version on a forum once, and got ripped apart by people swearing that the 'hit' version was BJ Thomas. All I could say was, "not where I come from". In Los Angeles, the H,JF&R version is the ONLY version. I still listen to it from time to time. Great vocals.
  • Joan from Orange, VaI dont care who else was supposed to record this song, or who else performs it- this version is the only real one- love this song.
  • Kevin from Reading , PaI bought this single in 1971 and 37 years later, I still like the song. Good use of brass for its time. Good pop. What else is there to say?
  • John from This City, AustraliaDont pull your luve out me darling is the most sickening sweetest awful songs ever.
  • Don from State College, PaAccording to Rob Grill (of the Grass Roots) in an interview, this song was originally written to be recorded by the Grass Roots, but it fell through.
  • Rich from Elkins, WvI always liked this song...but their better one is ~Baby,Baby Fallin'in Love.
  • Steve from Willmar, MnI believe their first hit was under the name of the T-Bones, and they did "No matter what shape". An instrumental song patterned after a commercial back in the 60's
  • Howard from St. Louis Park, MnThere was a cover version by Glen Campbell that was part of a medley with Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye.
