You Ought to Be With Me
Al Green Lyrics


Sit right down and talk to me
About how you want to be
You ought to be with me
Yeah, you ought to be with me

Thinking about what people do
Talking about how I love you
Thinking there's nothing to what they say
You're going to be with me, anyway
They don't want to see us do
All of the things we want to
You ought to be with me
Hey, you ought to be with me

You don't have to waste my time
If you want to be a friend of mine
You can leave me now and walk away
And turn your back for another day

Oh babe, yeah, yeah

Say you ought to be the kind of girl
That can brighten this old world
And it's hard to see why you and me
Can't be together happily

I'm trying to realize
You being with some other guy
I don't know the reason why
You ought to be with me until I die

You ought to be with me until I die

I don't want to waste my time
If you want to be a friend of mine
I want to hold you tight, love you right
Put good feelin' in your night

My husband and I were together for 33 years. He died in 2013. I was bed bound for over a year. I was with him since I was 13 years old. He was my first and only love. It sincerely feels like these are and were his exact words to me too! I have always felt that way about this song. Jesus will help you go on. He IS.
