Red Clay
Freddie Hubbard Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

If you told me that you loved me I would feel so proud
Let me hold you honey, I'd holler out loud
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Now won't you love me baby just to kinda hang around
I'll always love you honey, I'll never let you down
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Well I'd climb the highest mountain if it reached the sky
To prove that I love you I'd jump off and fly
I'd even swim the ocean from shore to shore
To prove that I love you just a little bit more

Ah won't you love me baby just to kinda hang around
I'll always love you honey, I'll never let you down
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Now won't you love me baby just to kinda hang around
I'll always love you honey, I'll never let you down
Never love another even if I can
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Come to me baby I'm a one woman man
Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

One of my favorite Jazz albums from that time period. Had on vinyl - got the Cd version later. I took lessons from Joe Henderson back in the day!

Heard 'Red Clay' on one of the rock FM stations back when I was in college. To say I was astounded was an understatement. Fifty years later I would say it's my favorite jazz cut of all time. Look at the lineup. And with all due respect to Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong, nobody every played the trumpet with Freddie Hubbard's skills.

One of my all-time classic favorite albums (and one I don't have) by Mr. Hubbard. I interviewed him at NYC's The Blue Note back in 1994 and will post digital version on here soon.

Elliott Nelson

This is one of the albums that got me into jazz, and remains one of my favorites today!! Shouts out to my band teacher
