Ive Gotta Get A Message To You Lyrics

Artist: The Bee Gees

I've Gotta Get a Message to You
Bee Gees

The preacher talked to me and he smiled,
Said, "Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile.
Now for once in your life you're alone,
but you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone."

I've just got to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.

I told him I'm in no hurry,
but if I broke her heart, won't you tell her I'm sorry.
And for once in my life I'm alone,
and I've got to let her know just in time before I go.

I've just go to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.

Well I laughed but that didn't hurt,
and it's only her love that keeps me wearing this dirt.
Now I'm crying but deep down inside,
well I did it to him, now it's my turn to die.

I've just got to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.

"I've Gotta Get a Message to You" is a song recorded by the Bee Gees in 1968, which became their second number-one single on the UK Singles Chart, and reached number eight on the U.S. pop chart.

The song is about a man who, awaiting his execution in the electric chair,[1] begs the prison chaplain to pass a final message on to his wife. Robin Gibb, who wrote the lyrics, said that the man's crime was the murder of his wife's lover. He came up with the idea following a quarrel with his wife and originally conceived the song with Percy Sledge in mind to record it.[2] (In fact, Sledge did record it in February, 1970, but Atlantic did not issue it in the US at the time.)

The song appeared on the U.S. edition of the Bee Gees' third album Idea. The Vince Melouney track "Such a Shame" appeared instead in the UK but both songs are featured on the CD edition released circa 1991.
