Real Real Gone
Van Morrison Lyrics


Real real gone
I got hit by a bow and arrow
Got me down to the very marrow
And I'm real, real gone

Real real gone
I can't stand up by myself
Don't you know I need your help
And I'm real, real gone

Some people say
You can make it on your own
Oh you can make it if you try
I know better now
You can't stand up alone
Oh baby that is why

I'm real, real gone
I can't stand up by myself
Don't you know I need your help
You're a friend of mine
And I'm real, real gone

And Sam Cooke is on the radio
And the night is filled with space
And your fingertips touch my face
You're a friend of mine
And I'm real, real gone

I'm real gone
Oh Lord I got hit by a bow and arrow
Got me down to the very marrow
You're a friend of mine
And I'm real, real gone
And I'm real, real gone
I'm real gone

Wilson Pickett said:
"In the midnight hour,
That's when my love comes tumbling down"
Solomon Burke said:
"If you need me, why don't you call me"
James Brown said:
"When you're tired of what you got, try me"
Gene Chandler said:
"There's a rainbow in my soul"

I got hit by a bow and arrow
Got me down to the very marrow
And I'm real real gone

Real real gone
I can't stand up by myself
Don't you know I need your help
And I'm real real gone

Some people say
You can make it on your own
Oh, you can make it if you try

I know better now
You can't stand up alone
Oh, baby, that is why

I'm real real gone
I can't stand up by myself
Don't you know? I need your help
You're a friend of mine and I'm real real gone

And Sam Cooke is on the radio
And the night is filled with space
And your fingertips touch my face
You're a friend of mine and I'm real real gone

I'm real gone now
Oh Lord, I got hit by a bow and arrow
Got me down to the very marrow
You're a friend of mine and I'm real real gone
And I'm real real gone, I'm real gone

Wilson Pickett said, "In the midnight hour
That's when my love comes tumbling down"

It's a song I don't want to end. Such an upbeat vibe.

Carol Western

Im almost 60 years old ive been listening to his music far back as i can remember. And im hear to tell you he just gets better and better. This man is by far one of the best musicians thats ever been .hes in a class all of his own.

uwe siegert

56, always loved his voice, melodies.

I AM 66 and agree with everything you said! This song is, if not perfect then it's DAMN NEAR! I remember back in the 60's he was on the cover of the first Rolling Stone magazine I ever bought ('68 I think). Didn't know who he was (although I HAD heard Brown Eyed Girl I didn't make the connection). That soon changed with Blue Money, Domino etc. and especially with the Tupelo Honey album, still one of my all time favs! Well gotta go back and listen to this a few more dozen times! Keep you and yours safe!

Todd Holman

This is one of my favorite all-time songs. Surely, it must rank somewhere in the top twenty classic rock songs of all-time?

Robert Nesfield

How cool is Van Fuckin' Morrison! I hope he never dies and just keeps making music forever and ever!

Wayne Johanson

I am with you on that.

AJ Duke

This song helped me survive a bone marrow transplant 22 years ago along with my nurse who shared with me. With Enlightenment and being close to her I experienced a joy only a true poet like V.M. could describe, and I thank her and him for saving and changing my life!

Neil Carlson

Don't you know, I need your help, Such a basic TRUTH! from THE MAN !
