Come live with me and be my love
Share my bread and wine
Be a part of me, the heart of me
Be mine

Come live with me and be my love
Let our dreams combine
Be wife to me, be life to me
Be mine

With these hands I will build a roof
To shield your head
And with these hands I will carve the woodFor our babys bed

Come live with me and be my love
And let me love you all the time
Be mate to me, be fate to me

I swear, I promise you
I will cry for you, I will comfort you
My whole life through

Come live with me and be my love

Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »
