I Got You

Album: Save Me San Francisco (2009)
  • Hey, did you hear, about the one that got away,
    They say, he looked left,
    She turned right, meant to be together but not that night,
    It's when fate's running late, we tend to make mistakes,
    We go 'round and 'round, from love to love
    It's either way too much or not enough

    Gimme lazy days with nothing better to do
    Than singin' oh black water keep on rollin' while I wait for you
    I don't care if it rains, I'll be just fine,
    I'm leaving the ghosts behind until
    I got you, I got you
    You're the sun through my window, warming my skin
    Oh you, I got you
    Hey,

    Then when one of them was taken, the other one was waiting
    For the next big thing
    To bring them to the gates of heaven
    Or maybe just a late night in Vegas
    It's true, that's what we do when were going down swingin'
    Then coming up singing the blues
    Wearing out my shoes, chasing new faces to get to you

    Driving home on a summer night
    Singin' old black water
    Keep on rolling 'till the time is right
    I don't care if it rains, I'll be just fine
    Sit back enjoy the ride

    Until I got you, I got you
    You're the sun through my window
    Warming my skin, oh you I got you Like Sonny and Cher
    Except I'll be there for you, I got you
    Let old black water bring us together

    Old black water keep on rolling
    Mississippi moon won't you keep on shining on me
    Old black water keep on rolling
    Mississippi moon won't you keep on shining on me
    Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
    Pretty Mama come on take me by the hand,
    Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
    Pretty mama,
    Here she comes,

    I got you, I got you
    You're the sun through my window warming my skin,
    Oh you I got you
    Like Sonny and Cher you know I'll be there for you
    I got you, let old black water bring us together
    You, I got you, I got you , I got you baby
    By the hand hand take me by the hand
    Pretty mama dance with your daddy all night long
    Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
    Pretty mama come and take me by the hand
    By the hand hand, take me by the hand
    Pretty mama dance with your daddy all night long
    Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
    Pretty mama come and take me by the hand
    By the hand hand, take me by the hand
    Pretty mama dance with your daddy all night long
    Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
    Pretty mama come and take me by the hand Writer/s: Pat Simmons, Pat Monahan, Kevin Griffin
