Directly from My Heart
Little Richard Lyrics


Direct
Directly from my heart to you
Direct
Directly from my heart to you
Oh, you know that I love you
That's why I feel so blue

Oh, I pray
Our love would last away
I pray
That our love would last away
Yeah, we'd be so happy together
But you're so far away

Well, I need
(Oh, baby, need you baby)
I need you by my side
Well, I need
Yes, I need you by my side
Oh, I'd loved you little darlin'
Your love I could never hide

I only knew the Zappa version until tonight.
But now, sleep well sweet Richard.

Yes, this is THE version.

I am 43 and my mom use to play the heck out of this song but she never knew who sang it. Well, after searching and searching this is definitely THE right version! Thanks for posting.

@cross roads I'm 47, first copy i had was on a cassette when i was a kid. People were always shocked 2 find out it was Richard.
We lost a special one today. ❤

RIP Little Richard. I think this version is recorded with the Johnny Otis band. I also like the longer cover that Sugarcane Harris did with the Mothers of Invention.
