Fiona Friday – Let It Be Me

everly-brothers

Perhaps best know via the hit version by The Everly Brothers the song “Let It Be Me” was a favourite of both Fiona and I.

It has some special memories as Ray Wilson nailed it with a great version at our friends Andrew and Vivienne’s wedding ceremony.

Whilst Fiona always went with the Everley’s version my own favourite was the 1964 release by Jerry Butler and Betty Everett

 

“Let It Be Me” – Jerry Butler and Betty Everett

I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you, let it be me

Don’t take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever, let it be me

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love what would life be

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you’ll always let it be me

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love what would life be

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you’ll always—let–it be–me
