Description
Another Jamming with Jack song, number 4. A great oldie tune that I first heard in high school in the sixties, recorded by the Casinos. My offering here is another live one from 2008 at the Californian, a convalescent hospital in Santa Barbara. There's almost always background noise and voices fitting for this setting. This time is no exception. Thanks again for listening...

Composer: John D. Loudermilk

Lyrics
Kiss me each morning for a million years
Hold me each evening by your side
Tell me you'll love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss
Soften my dreams with your sighs
Tell me you'll love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

If you must go, oh no, I won't grieve
If you wait a lifetime before you leave

Then if you must go
Mmm, I won't tell you no
Just so that we can say we tried
Tell me you'll love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out
Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

So many of the old songs have a lovely lilting quality that's irresistible. Engaging performance, Jack.

Old songs...
Philip, that is so true. The melodic flowing melodies and tempos just make so many of these tunes so singable. I love singing them. Thanks again.

say, just talking...
The stray comments here and there do give the tracks a sense of being in the moment. I have several more of these live songs to post, a few of which have more of my ad-lib comments... Thanks again for listening!

Yes
As usual I like your voice so much. It has a comforting tone.
Makes me feel good.

Never heard the song, but it has a classical evergreenish character.

Nice blast from the past
Jack, what a special gift to the people there, getting to hear a live concert. :-) Thank you for sharing this with us. I love the chording in this song, and you make it seem easy to play, which it's probably not.

Nice Song
I've been a huge fan of "old" music & radio since I was a kid -- a lot of water's passed under THAT bridge, I can tell you-- but I've never heard this one before. This is a solid song, and your performance is solid, too. There's always a bit of Leon Redbone lurking underneath your voice & delivery, and I'm glad it stayed underneath: the earnestness in the performance makes the whole thing shine. A very enjoyable post, this.
Thx,

S2
