No One There
Martha and The Vandellas Lyrics


Shaking like a leaf on a tree
That's coming loose from the stem
Shaking like a leaf on a tree
Because I'm coming loose from my man

I'm like a weeping willow
Weeping on my pillow
For years & years
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Down & down he dragged me
Like a fiend he nagged me
For years & years
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue
Still I'm through
I must tell him goodbye
Rather than have that man
Gonna lay me down & just die

So, broken-hearted sisters
Aggravating misters
Lend me your ears
There ain't no sweet man
That's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue
Still I'm through
I must tell him goodbye
Rather than have that man
Gonna lay me down & just die

So, broken-hearted sisters
Aggravating misters
Lend me your ears
There ain't no sweet man

Get goosebumps every time I hear this, the emotion in her voice....fantastic Northern Soul.....KTF x

Glen Blades

Love any northern soul

"The future is hard to see when you're looking through a tear" CLASSIC!

Moutton Noir

Why on earth was this not a chart hit? One of Martha's best ever recordings- great vocal and production. I bought the "Black Magic" album from my local record store as a 15 yr old back in 76 and instantly fell in love with this track.

Robert Davies

Miss Reeves's greatest performance, so appropriate to the last 18 months and to those of us who have loved and lost

Georgina Spick

O my heart!, this song takes me back when I lost my husband, didn't think I would recover, now years on I hold my memories so close, so close

Norwin S.

This should have been a # 1 HIT !!!

Not only an fantastic vocal from Martha, but an awesome production too. Johnny Bristol & H.B.Barnum nailed this...love the heartbeat when she sings "No One There"...very clever indeed. A truly beautiful piece of Soul.

I first played this at Aycliffe niter in the mid-seventies - it flopped to my disbelief. Carried on trying at various venues with little success until it finally took off ten years down the line at Warrington Parr Hall! Now it's a standard floor packer. Shows how tastes change over the years and proves the old adage - if at first you don't succeed; try, try again.

Louis Wendruck

One of Martha's most meaningful songs - and great backgrounds are mixed in.
