“Ain't Gone 'n' Give Up On Love” by the Amazing Stevie Ray Vaughan #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Stevie Ray Vaughan (1)

Introduction:

If you don’t give up on something you truly believe in, you will find a way.” 

― Roy T. Bennett

On Thursday night, I have been on a SABBATICAL for about a week. It's time to come back to the living. Yep ... never giving up on you!

Still feeling like I need a bit of quiet time but this too will past. So, this post will be short and sweet.

Going to take off early Saturday... and I am headed somewhere.. maybe East!

There is so much amazing new and old music out there it is very hard to select the perfect song for the evening. Tonight’s artist, who is no longer with us, is Texas native and he can play the guitar. Naturally, I am speaking about Stevie Ray Vaughan. The song being featured is titled “Ain't Gone 'n' Give Up On Love(2). It was the fourth song listed in his third album “Soul to Soul” which was release on September 30, 1985. His genre is considered Blues rock, Texas blues and electric blues. Tragically, on August 27, 1990, he died in a helicopter crash following a performance in East Troy, Wisconsin. This video was uploaded on YouTube in 2009 and it originated from his performance at The Orpheum Theater on Beale Street Memphis, Tennessee August, 1986. His incredible talent is missed.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Ain't Gone 'n' Give Up On Love"(3)
I ain't gone 'n' give up on love
Love won't give up on me
I ain't gone 'n' give up on love
Love ain't gone 'n' give up on me
Every tear that I've cried
Only washed away the fear inside
Now I, I ain't gone 'n' give up on love

Every beat of my heart
Pounds with joy and not with pain
Every beat of my heart
Pounds with joy and not in vain
And although those are painful memories
Only brought me to my knees
I was just given up on love

Little Johnny Taylor told us so long ago
What about the midnight cryin'
Wo that cheatin' and lyin'
What about the price that will
Oh surely be paid
Those that gave up on love
Love will have it's day
I ain't givin' up on love

I ain't gone 'n' give up on love
Love won't give up on me
I ain't gone 'n' give up on love
Love won't give up on me
Every time I cry
Love just won't let me be

Won't set me free

Hope you enjoy this music as much as I do.
Peace Diana
I can't give up on love S... or you!
