TRYIN' TO GET TO YOU
(Rosemarie McCoy - Charlie Singleton)
JOHNNY CARROLL & HIS HOT ROCKS (DECCA 9-29940, 1956)

I've been travelin' over mountains
Even through the valleys too
I've been travelin' night and day
I've been runnin' all the way
Baby tryin' to get to you

Ever since I read your letter
Where you said you loved me true
I've been travelin' night and day
I've been runnin' all the way
Baby tryin' to get to you

Well I read you're lovin' letter
Well my heart began to sing
Well with many miles between us
But it didn't mean a thing

I just had to reach you baby
Despite of all that I've been through
I kept travelin' night and day
I kept runnin' all the way
Baby tryin' to get to you

Well if I had to do it over
That's exactly what I'd do
I would travel night and day
And I'd still run all the way
Baby tryin' to get to you

Well there's nothin' that could hold me
Or that could keep me away from you
When your lovin' letter told me
That you really loved me true

Lord above you knows I love you
It was he that brought me through
When my way was dark as night
He would shine his brightest light
When I was tryin' to get to you
