5 you better move on [3:41]



you better move on
(Arthur Alexander)

You ask me to give up the hand of the girl I love
You tell me I'm not the man she's worthy of
But who are you to tell her who to love?
That's up to her, yes, and the Lord above
You better move on
Well, I know you can buy her fancy clothes and diamond rings
But I believe she's happy with me without those things
Still you beg me to set her free
But, my friend, that will never be
You better move on
I can't blame you for lovin' her
But can't you understand, man, she's my girl?
And I'm never gonna let her go
'cause I love her so
I think you better go, now, I'm gettin' mighty mad
You ask me to give up the only love I've ever had
Maybe I would, oh, but I love her so
Never gonna let her go
You better move on (you better move on)
You better move on (you better move on)
You better move on (you better move on)
You better move on (you better move on)
You better move on (you better move on)
You better move on (you better move on)


You better move on

Taken from the booklet:

Arthur's groundbreaking first Dot single was also the first hit produced at Rick Hall's original FAME studio in Muscle Shoals. Released in late 1961, it entered the charts in early '62, eventually reaching #24 following Arthur's appearance on American Bandstand in March. A favorite of The Rolling Stones, it was covered on their 1963 December's Children album, and later recorded by Johnny Rivers, Bobby Vie, Mink DeVille and Jones/Johnny Paycheck.
"My criteria for that song was Ben. E. King's 'Stand By Me' and Chuck Jackson's 'Any Day Now' and 'Save The Last Dance For Me'," Arthur explained. It's only fitting that Chuck Jackson interpret the lyric here with help from Dire Strait's Mark Knopfler on guitar.

remarks of the author:
Mark (electric guitar) performed this song already live on a promotion event for the Randy Newman album 'land of dreams' 1988, together with Randy Newman (vocals, piano), Marcus Miller (bass, background vocals), Hiram Bullock † (acoustic guitar, background vocals), Omar Hakim (drums) and Philippe Saisse (keyboard). This was aired on NBC's late-night televisionshow 'Sunday Night' [season #1, episode #106] 6. Nov. 1988 hosted by Jools Holland and David Sanborn.
