Credited to M & B Flint:

(Em) If you wanna leave me (A) well that's all right
(Bm) Come the morning, find you're gone (A) well I don't mind
(D) It's not that I don't love you baby (DDim) you know I do
(A7) But I don't wanna put no hold on (D) you

(G) Such a lovely (A7) feeling darling, (F#m) having you so near
(G) Gee it's good to (A7) know that you're a(D)round
(G) But should you ever (A7) go away then (F#m) let me make it clear
(G) I won't ever (Gmj7) try to tie you (A6) down (A7)

And if you should get restless, well that's all right
Find that you are in need of a change, well I don't mind
Don't misunderstand me baby, my love is true,
But I don't wanna put no hold on you

It all starts and finishes with a nice riff based around
(D) (Dmj7) (G6) (A7)
Improvements welcomed - I'm sure there will be some!
cheers, Terry

What a beautiful song , was it opportunity knocks that he got his break from ? I haven't heard this in years. Is Bernie still around.

I´ve spent a couple of months looking for this.

Recently tried picking up a guitar again and the tune came into my head from nowhere,

I remember it from the opportunity knocks days, but it doesn´t appear to be on many compilation albums

Just now I tried for the first time actaully putting in part of the lyrics I could recall instead of berni Flint, and was at first pleaed to come across this and then amazed at how recent the posts were!

Is there some strange force at work which is propelling this song back into people´s minds.

Are we looking at a 2007 number one!

It's amazing that Bernie had all that publicity from Opportunity Knocks, and then had a massive hit, and then - Nothing! His second release " Southern Comfort"(?) didn't help as it was a very ordinary song.

This is wierd.

I've wanted to do this song at an open mic I go to and have looked on google a few times to no avail. Then had another go a few days back and there it was.... Thanks a lot.

As the song is short I made up some more lyrics out of my own brain....

If you get tired of me, I'll understand
I'll find something else to do, join a rock n roll band
Spend my evenings all alone, weekends at the zoo
But I don't want to put no hold on you

Though I will miss you badly I'll not shed a tear
And I'll never let it show
I would take you back so gladly, you need never fear
But I won't stop you if you want to go.


I do it in c

For the into play....

c cmaj7 (i.e. c with your index finger lifted off to give the note b) F G

Rock n Roll

Rich

He was a van driver before that run with Hughie Green in 1977. That's what he went back to. One good song just en't just enough out there to keep you in the public eye.
