Betty Chaba - Let Go

Fullscreen video link


I've been wanting to cover this song ever since it was shared with me so I was glad to have some time today to finally sit down with it. 

The sun was especially nice coming through my window and I'm finally past a cold that has been plaguing me the past few weeks, so here is my take on an old Betty Chaba song (suggested to me by good pal Bre Mcdaniels (a wonderful singer-songwriter whose music you can explore here). 

Bre's mom sang under the artist name of Betty Chaba in the 70s, you can see her performing the song after the jump. 

Enjoy this beautiful but slightly melancholy song about lovers letting go. 


 

Lyrics

If the wheels don’t go, put your feet on the ground 

if it’s too heavy a load, you better put something down

if my lovin doesn’t fill you, better put down the bowl

If it’s already too late, if our love’s become a dead weight 

let go 


Maybe we did it all wrong 

maybe we promised too soon 

maybe I’ve loved you so long, it’s all I know how to do 

but I can’t live on just memories, of when you loved me too 

why don’t you walk out the door 

there’s nothing here anymore

let go 

 

If the wheels don’t turn, walk down the road 

if the fire don’t burn, you better kindle the coal 

if my lovin doesn’t fill you, better put down the bowl 

If it’s already too late, if our love’s become a dead weight

let go 

If it’s already too late, if our love’s become a dead weight 

let go
