I'D BE GLAD TO LET YOU LOVE ME - Barbara Anne Taylor sings

After seeing a quick pick up at the Leather Ball Saloon in Dallas one 1974 evening. This is a song from the album, FEATHERS IN THE WING by Snow Geese/Barbara, Michael Jeffrey and me. 1976

(50 years later, I am stunned at the starkness of this song…)

I’d be glad to let you love me if you’ll just hold me for a while
You could take your time and linger I would not demand a smile
I’d be glad to let you touch me if you’ll hold me for a while
I’m hungry like a woman but I’m lonely like a child

Children die when they’re lonely.
Women cry, you know they’re only human
My oh, My oh, my…

You don’t have to talk or listen. You can forget me when I’m gone
Tonight I need somebody who is looking for someone
I won’t ask you for tomorrow. I won’t ask you for your name
You don’t have to try to please. I know that would be a game

Children die when they’re lonely.
Women cry, you know they’re only human
My oh, My oh, my…

You don’t have to try to please me. If you’ll just hold me that will do
Just to know I’ve been your pleasure is all I’m asking you.
So come on while I am able to control my bitter fears
I can hear my heart is pounding as it’s drowning out the tears

Children die when they’re lonely.
Women cry, you know they’re only human
My oh, My oh, my…

OMG I just realized... this has always been one of my most favorite JMT songs... and it comes from one of my most favorite JMT albums(FITW 1976)... the VERY first JMT album I ever owned! An album that was recorded over 40 years ago! I remember when JMT offered it For Sale from the stage of Montana Mining Company in Midland, Texas... and I jumped to buy it! OMG... My dear, dear old friend... has it really... has it really been 40 years? OMG
