Subject: Never-ending love
From: Paul
Date: 08 Sep 98 - 01:17 PM

Here's a song that my wife sings, but she only knows the one verse:

I have a never-ending love for you From now on that's all I'm gonna do From the first time we met I knew I'd sing a never-ending song of love for you.

PLEASE give me more of the lyrics!

From: Earl

It was on Cowpie but it's so short I thought I'd post it anyway. I remember it done in the 70's by Delaney and Bonnie.

NEVER ENDING LOVE
by Dolly Parton

Chorus
I've got a never ending love for you
From now on,that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never ending love for you

After all this time of being alone
We can love one another,feel for each other
From now on.....Feel so good I can hardly stand it

Repeat Chorus

I imagine hearing just that fragment might be kind of like listening to "Small, Small World." Your wife could say worse things to you, ya know....
You'll find the rest of the lyrics at the International Lyrics Serveror Cowpie. These sources are wrong in attributing the song to Dolly Parton, though. Words and music were written in 1971 by Delaney Bramlett, of Delaney and Bonnie fame.

Joe,

Thanks for fixing the breaks. It makes more sense that Delaney Bramlet wrote it. Neither International nor Cowpie has any more words though.

Well, Earl, there are actually four verses, but they're almost all the same except that they substitute verbs - just put in "sing," "got," and "have" wherever you'd like. Officially, though, Verses 1 and 2 are identical - they start with I've got and end with I'd have. Verses 3 and 4 start with I've got and end with "I'd sing my never-ending song of love to you." The bridge, (after all this time...) goes after verses 2 and 3. I like this kind of song, because I can actually get through the whole thing without screwing up the lyrics too bad.....

Here it is as transcribed from the record. Some slight variations as you go, you can see. My wife (tambourine) and I (guitar) do this one at too-high volume to the great delight (and surprise) of everyone......Tiger

NEVER ENDING SONG OF LOVE-Delaney and Bonnie
Delaney Bramlett

INTRO (2x)
I've got a never ending love for you,
From now on, that's all I want to do.
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never ending love for you.

    REFRAIN
    After all this time of being alone,
    We can love one another,
    Live for each other,
    From now on.
    I feel so good,
    I can hardly stand it.

Never ending love for you,
From now on that's all I want to do.
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never ending song of love for you.

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

    REFRAIN

Never ending love for you,
From now on, that's all I want to do.
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never ending love for you.

I've got a never ending love for you,
From now on that's all I want to do.
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never ending song of love for you.

Neither of those versions sound right to me. I never was a fan of Delaney and Bonnie (listening to other stuff about then) and I certainly can't recall it by Dolly Parton. So who? ~~ Dickie Lee, maybe?

Wow! So many answers. Now if I can bother you a bit more... Can anyone provide me with the melody to the refrain? I'll take it in standard notation, guitar tab, mandolin tab, or even harmonica tab if I you've got it. (Okay, I'd prefer not harmonica tab; that's nasty stuff to read). If you have to send it to me as an attachment, my email is: warmish@yahoo.com

Well, here's the tune. Note that there is a 3-bar instrumental break after "from now on." There are a lot of rests and other crazy things in this, so the ABC may not turn out. The MIDI should work, though.

Never Ending Song Of Love
The Best of Delaney & Bon...
1971   mp3

I've got a never ending love for you
From now on that's all I wanna do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have never ending love for you

I've got a never ending love for you
From now on, that's all I wanna do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never ending love for you

After all this time of being alone
We can love one another
Feel for each other
From now on

It's so good I can hardly stand it

Never ending love for you
From now on that's all I wanna do
From the first we met I knew
I'd sing my never ending song of love for you

do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do....

After all this time of being alone
We can love one another
Feel for each other
From now on

It's so good I can hardly stand it

Never ending love for you
From now on that's all I wanna do
From the first we met I knew
I'd sing my never ending song of love for you

I've got a never ending love for you
From now on that's all I wanna do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never ending song of love for you

From Joel Whitburn's book:

Delaney and Bonnie were husband and wife. The "Friends" of Delaney & Bonnie And Friends included backing artists at various times: Rita Coolidge, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Leon Russell, Dave Mason, and many others.

Debuted on 6/26/71; Peaked at Charted position #13 for 10 weeks.

I remember this song well because I had just graduated from college and was on my way to the Army in a few months thereafter. This is one of those "earworms" that is hard to get out of your mind.

This song is definitely a wincer!

Am I correct in recalling that the recording of this song had a lot of background noise, like the restaurant songs that served as the background for the Trini Lopez recordings?
I suppose it's corny and all, but I've always kinda liked this song for some reason. I suppose "pseudo-folk bubblegum music" might be a pretty good description of the style.
But heck, it's catchy.

Someone asked for the chords or tablature. I simply cut and pasted the earlier lyrics. Believe me, I could give a sh!t less whether Dolly Parton, Delaney Bramlett, or Oscar Hammerstein wrote it. Its a tune you can whistle, but it ain't exactly Macarthur Park.

i jut saw a thread on never ending songs and this is the first one that came to mind...i think "never ending love" was by Delany and Bonnie Bramlett. Delany died in 2008 http://delaneybramlett.com/

http://deehits.homestead.com/neverending.html

I've got a never-ending love for you,
From now on that's all I want to do.
From the first time we met I knew,
I'd have a never-ending love for you.

After all this time of bein' alone,
We can love one another,
give for each other,
From now on.
It's so good, I can hardly stand it.

Never-ending love for you,
From now on that's all I want to do.
From the first time we met I knew,
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you.

After all this time of bein' alone,
We can love one another,
live for each other,
From now on.
It's so good I can hardly stand it.

Never-ending love for you,
From now on that's al I want to do.
From the first time we met I knew,
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you.

I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you.

Subject: Chords Add: NEVER ENDING SONG OF LOVE (D Bramlett)

In G

the first part (I've got a never ending love..)
is just G and D

the other part (after all these years of being alone..)
is G and C with a D on the last line



Somebody will probably come along with chords plugged into the lyrics. If not, and if you can't hear where the chord changes go, I'll come back and put a little more effort into it.

Nowhere above or in COWPIE did I see where the song was posted as haven been written by Dolly Parton.... The Poster ONLY listed it as the DOLLY PARTON version.

Dickie did this in a different chord but i like it better in D.

I dunno, Gene - two posts have lyrics that say "by Dolly Parton" - not "recorded by..."

I'd say that's certainly misleading.
