Sam Cooke All The Way

when somebody loves you

its no good unless he loves you

all the way

happy to be near you

when you need someone to cheer you

all the way

taller than the tallest tree is

know thats how it s gotta feel

deeper than the deep blue see is

that how deep it goes if it is real, baby

when somebody needs you its no good

unless he needs you

all the way

through all the good and lean years

and all the in between years

come what may

how knows where the road will lead us

and only a fool would say

but if you let me love you

its for sure I am gonna love you

all the way

all the way

who knows where the road will lead us

only a fool would say

but if you let me love you

its for sure I am gonna love you

all the way

Sam Cooke Cupid

Cupid, draw back your bow

And let your arrow go

Straight to my lover’s heart for me, for me

Cupid, please hear my cry

And let your arrow fly

Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, I don’t mean to bother you

But I’m in distress

There’s danger of me losing all of my happiness

For I love a girl who doesn’t know I exist

And this you can fix

So, Cupid, draw back your bow

And let your arrow go

Straight to my lover’s heart for me, nobody but me

Cupid, please hear my cry

And let your arrow fly

Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, Cupid, if your arrow make her love strong for me

I promise I will love her until eternity

I know between the two of us her heart we can steal

Help me if you will

So, Cupid, draw back your bow

And let your arrow go

Straight to my lover’s heart for me, nobody but me

Cupid, please hear my cry

And let your arrow fly

Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, Cupid

Don’t you hear me

Calling you?

I need you

Cupid

Help me

I need you

Cupid

Don’t fail me

Sam Cooke Little Red Rooster

I’m a little red rooster,

Too lazy to crow for day

I’m a little red rooster,

Too lazy to crow for day

Keep everything in the barnyard,

Upset in every way

Dogs begin to bark now,

And the hounds begin to howl

Dogs begin to bark now,

And the hounds begin to howl

Watch out stray cat,

The little red rooster’s on the prowl

If you see the little red rooster

Won’t you please drive him home

If you see the little red rooster

Won’t you please drive him home

Been no peace in the barnyard

Since that little red rooster’s been gone

I’m a little red rooster,

Too lazy to crow for day

I’m a little red rooster,

Too lazy to crow for day

Keep everything in the barnyard,

Upset in every way

Given you my heart because I mmm you

And you alone were meant for me

Please give your loving heart to me

And tell we’ll never part

I think of you every morning

Can I help it if I dream of you every night

Please give your loving heart to me

And tell we will never part

Sam Cooke No One

Oh how I love you

every moment I can see your face

Oh how I love you

no one, no one could ever

never will take your place

oh how I love you

every moment I know I see your face

oh how I love you

no one could ever take your place

every morning when I rise

I can almost see you standing before my eyes

and every night when I go to sleep

my prayer is our love will keep

I long to see your smiling face

I long to feel your warm embrace

how could anyone ever take your place

oh how I love you

every moment I know I see your

oh how I love you

no one could ever take your place

oh how I love you

Sam Cooke If I Had You

If I had you honey

I’d be happy

If I had you

I know I have riches

If I had you

how rich I would be

If I had you, baby

I have so many riches

how I wish you belong to me

Baby, baby

If I had you

I’d be so happy

Sam Cooke The Wayward Wind

O, the wayward wind is a restless wind

Is a restless wind that yearns to wander

On the eye was born the next of kin

The next of kin to the wayward wind

And a lovely shack by a railroad track

I spent my younger days

and I guess the sound of the outward bound

made me a slave to my wandering days

and the wayward wind

O, the wayward wind is a restless wind

Is a restless wind that yearns to wander

On the eye was born the next of kin

The next of kin to the wayward wind

I met her there in a border town

We vowed we’d never part

though I tried my best to settle down

now she’s alone with the broken heart

O, the wayward wind is a restless wind

Is a restless wind that yearns to wander

On the eye was born the next of kin

The next of kin to the wayward wind

Sam Cooke Almost In Your Arms

You’re here, that moment’s near,

I’m almost in your arms

Tonight, the mood is right,

I’m almost in your arms

One sigh, one word

and I will rush to your embrace

Say that certain word,

sigh that certain sigh

And with all my heart,

to your arms I’ll fly

It’s strange, how we are changed

by things that seem so small

One look can write a book,

one touch can say it all

We know those nights alone,

and now we found our way

I’m almost in your arms,

nearly in your arms to stay

[repeat first and last verse]

Sam Cooke Cry

If your sweetheart, sends a letter, of goodbye

It’s no secret, you’ll feel better, if you cry

When waking from a bad dream,

don’t you sometimes think it’s real

Well it’s only false emotions,

that you feel

If your heartaches seems to hang around too long

And your blues keep getting blue-er with each song

Remember, sunshine can be found behind a cloudy sky

So let your hair down and go on and cry

remember, sunshine can be found, behind a cloudy sky

so let your hair down and go on and cry

so let your hair down and go on and cry.

Sam Cooke Touch The Hem Of His Garment

Oh, there was a woman in the Bible days,

she had been sick, sick so very long

but she heard about Jesus was passing by,

so she joined the gathering throng

and while she was pushing her way through,

someone ask her: ‘What are you trying to do?’

She said:

‘if I could just touch the hem of His garment

I know I’ll be made whole’

She cried:

‘Oh Lord, Oh Lord and Oh Lord, Oh Lord’

Said :

‘if I could just touch the hem of His garment

I know I’ll be made whole’

Oh, She spent her money here and there

until she had no, had no more to spare,

the doctors, they’d done all they could

but their medicine would do no good.

When she touched Him The Saviour didn’t see

but still He turned around and cried

‘Somebody touched me’

She said:

‘It was I who just wanna touch the hem of Your garment,

I know I’ll be made whole right now’

She stood there crying:

‘Oh Lord, Oh Lord and Oh Lord, Oh Lord’

Said:

‘If I could just touch the hem of His garment,

I know I’ll made whole right now’
