​Holdin' Court

This song is by Robert Cray and appears on the album Midnight Stroll (1990).

Our love was strong
As love could be
But then someone got between
You and me
People said we were finished
When you walked out the door
I was so worried
I walked a hole in the floor

But I'm holdin' court tonight
Surprising all my friends
I'm holdin' court tonight, baby
'Cause I got you back again

All the one nighters
That I had to do
I didn't think about what
That would do to you
Some smart guy thought that while I was away
That he could just slip right in and take my place

But I'm holdin' court tonight
Surprising all my friends
I'm holdin' court tonight, baby
'Cause I got you back again

I called you from tomorrow
To talk about yesterday
Nothing about I love 'ya
There's just some bills to pay
You said that time and loneliness
Had made you weak
It's hard not to listen when temptation speaks

We talked about it
And we set it straight
And now I'm on the town, baby
We're gonna celebrate

I'm holdin' court tonight
Surprising all my friends
I'm holdin' court tonight, baby
'Cause I got you back again
I'm holdin' court tonight, yeah...
