Ruth Brown

Ruth Brown (January 12, 1928 – November 17, 2006) was an American singer-songwriter and actress also known as "Queen of R&B" noted for bringing a pop music style to R&B music in a series of hit songs for Atlantic Records in the 1950s, such as "So Long", "Teardrops from My Eyes" and "(Mama) He Treats Your Daughter Mean". For these contributions, Atlantic became known as "The house that Ruth built" (alluding to the popular nickname for Old Yankee Stadium). more »

Break it to me gently, let me down that easy way
Make me feel you still love me if it's just, just for one more day
Break it to me gently so my tears, my tears won't fall too fast
If you must go, then go slowly, let me love you 'till then

BRIDGE:
The love we've shared oh so long, it's a tender part of me
If you must take your love away, take it gradually





And break it to me gently, give me time, oh give me a little time to ease the pain
If you must go, then go slowly, 'cause I'll never love again

BRIDGE (LEAD ONLY FOR FIRST TWO LINES)

If you must take your love away, take it gradually

KEY CHANGE

And break it to me gently
Give me time, oh give me a little time to ease the pain
Love me just a little longer, 'cause I'll never, never love again
'Cause I'll never, no never love again...ooh
