Unchained Melody
Al Hibbler Lyrics


Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered, for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

My navy buddy from NYC and I were returning to Charleston, SC after a weekend at his home in the city. We took a train back, in the club car George recognised Al at a table with the only two seats open. We asked if we could sit with him and he said he didn't mind. George knew who it was, I had no clue. He asked Al if he would grace us with a song. He said if you sing and dance up on the bar I will sing all night. George jumped right up there, who knew he could tap dance and he did a number. Al followed with this song and many others and the whole club car rocked that Sunday night in the spring of 1965. He didn't need any band to sound great. Never forget that evening.

We played this in December at my dad's funeral as it was one of his favourites and we like to think he was singing it to mum who had been dead the last 12 years. He sang it to her wgen she was alive and they were courting.

This is the original - I'm 73 and I remember it well.  The Righteous Bros is good too - it was magical in Ghost -  but this was the original and still gives me goose bumps.  I wore out the 45 - twice.

I also remember this first rendition....all the words and AL Hibler's name. The impression and the emotions it raised...and it still send chills through me.

@Mark Sieving thanks for the info. Great song. Righteous Bros. Good but many better versions including this and I like the Platters.

@Just Beat I believe the movie was "Unchained" movie version and originally by Todd Duncan.
