I've Got A Yearning Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

I've got a yearning to hold you tight at burning desire I live with day and night
Everything I lose keeps on hanging on
This feeling isn't leaving and by now it should be gone

I keep on thinking those thoughts that keep making me want you all the time
I should be trying to find me a way I can drive you from my mind
I know that you wanted to give and I know that you gave all you could
Wish I could accept what is over and done with for good
But I've got a yearning to hold you tight...

I've got a yearning to hold you tight...
I've got a yearning to hold you tight...
