I'm Just A Prisoner (Of Your Good Lovin')

This song is by Candi Staton and appears on the album I'm Just a Prisoner (1970) and on the album Stand By Your Man (1971).

I'd rather be lonely
Than to lose you
I'd rather be blue
Than to be all alone

'Cause if you leave me
My heart would grieve me
And my poor heart, no, no
Just couldn't stand the pain

Though your love
Has got me in captivity, yeah
Yet if you should leave me
I know I would die, yeah

In other words, in other words, listen
I just couldn't take it, baby
I couldn't stand
For you to say goodbye

Now I'm just a prisoner
For your good loving
I'm just a slave, yeah
Bound and chained

No, no, I don't wanna ever be free
So please don't ever leave me, my love
For my poor heart
No, it just couldn't stand the pain

Though your love, oh, yeah
Got me in captivity
Yet if you should leave me, no no
I know I would die
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

In other words, in other words
I just couldn't take it, baby
I couldn't stand, ho
To say goodbye
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm just a prisoner, oh
For your good loving, yes I am
Listen, I'm just a slave
Bound and chained
No, no, no, no

I don't ever wanna be free, oh no
So don't ever leave me, mm
For my poor heart, ooh
Just couldn't stand the pain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm just a prisoner
Just a prisoner
I done tried, I done tried
I done tried and I can't live without him
I can't live without him
I can't live without him
