    mighty sam mcclain - when the hurt is over lyrics

    baby you hurt me
    and i know that i've hurt you

    we've both promised
    to always be true

    we'd let our love
    get lost in the rain

    now we are waiting
    Oh for love to live again
    Holding on
    To what was before
    Oh lord i see
    Why did we have to let it go
    Now the only thing
    That i know
    The only thing
    That i think i'd know
    When the hurt is over
    Lord, maybe love will flow

    Trying to do
    What we know we must
    When you love somebody
    You know you got to trust
    I think about it
    again and again
    I say that i will baby
    Oh but i don't know if i can
    You say you're sorry
    Oh i say i am too
    then we turn round and round
    then again we'd be untrue
    that is why, that is why, the only thing
    that i know
    the only thing baby
    that i know
    when the hurt is over, baby
    maybe love will flow

    Guess by chance
    We'd work things out
    we both will know
    what love is all about
    don't move so quickly
    Oh it don't move too fast
    if you got a good love
    Oh you ought to try to make it last
    i know i hurt you
    lord you broke my heart
    and now we are sad baby
    because our love is apart
    that is why i say to you, the only thing
    that i know
    the only thing baby, i think i know
    Oh baby
    When the hurt is over
    Lord maybe love will flow

    I said when the hurt is over, baby
    And all the pain is gone

    Maybe i will learn how to love again y'all

    When the hurt is over, over
    Lord when all the pain is gone

    Mighty Sam McClain was an American soul blues singer and songwriter.

    “He did not believe in genres. He accepted and made music as music,” said his wife, Sandra. “When he came up north, he got settled into a sideline, in the blues category. He said always ‘I sing blues, and you people give me the blues, but I’m a singer.’ ”

    Album: Give It up to Love
    Lyrics: I, I'm real tired of these blues.
    Oh my lord i know, I'm tired of these blues...
    Oh my lord i know, i know,
    Said I'm really tired, of these low down blues.
    And if i don't find my way real soon,
    i dont know, just what i might do.

    Oh lord i'm tired....

    I.. I'm really tired of these low down dirty blues.

    I've been out here so dog gone long.. lord.
    and ive been hurt, too many times to count.
    Surrounded by people who say they love me,
    but in my heart, i know i'm all alone..
    Oh lord i'm tired....
    Lord, i'm real tired of these low down dirty blues.
    They say winners never quit,
    and quitters never win.
    i keep picking myself up,
    and starting all over again...

    (Guitar solo)

    They say winners never quit,
    Oh lord quitters never win.
    i keep picking myself up,
    and starting all over again...
    Oh my lord i know...
    Said I'm real tired of these blues.
    Oh my lord i know... i know,
    I'm real tired of these blues.

    And if i don't find my way real soon,
    i dont know, just what i might do.
    Oh lord,
    Oh lord i'm tired....
    Lord, said i'm real tired of these low down dirty blues.

    Blues...

    I'm some kind of tired...

    Earth
    Earth!
    If this love strong and true
    is too heavy for you
    too heavy for you to carry,
    then a blue butterfly
    that quickly passed my lover's eye
    is more eternal than you.

    Ocean!
    If your waves come to steal
    all this passion that I feel
    and sink it to the coldest bottom,
    then a tiny loving breath
    from my body made for death
    has got more power than you

    Heaven!
    If I don't find my love
    inside you up above
    protected behind your doorways,
    Then the wonders that you hold,
    all the beauty and the gold
    may rest in peace without me

    Album: Soul Survivor: The Best of Mighty Sam McClain (1999)

    Samuel McClain (April 15, 1943 – June 15, 2015), billed as Mighty Sam McClain, was an American Grammy nominated soul blues singer and songwriter.

    Life and career
    He was born in Monroe, Louisiana. As a five-year-old, he began singing in his mother's Gospel Church. McClain left home when he was thirteen and followed local R&B guitarist, Little Melvin Underwood through the Chitlin' circuit, first as his valet and then as lead vocalist himself at 15.
    While singing at the 506 Club in Pensacola, Florida he was introduced to the record producer and DJ, Papa Don Schroeder and in 1966, McClain recorded a cover version of Patsy Cline's Sweet Dreams. Several recording sessions at Muscle Shoals produced the further singles, Fannie-May and In the Same Old Way. For fifteen years, first in Nashville, Tennessee, then in New Orleans, McClain worked at menial jobs. McClain toured and recorded in Japan in 1989. The end product, Live in Japan, featured Wayne Bennett.
    By the early 1990s, McClain relocated to New England through his participation in the Hubert Sumlin Blues Party project. This led to Joe Harley and AudioQuest Music. The results were the successful releases, Give It Up To Love and Keep On Movin'. After his move to New Hampshire, then followed Sledgehammer Soul and Down Home Blues. In 1998 McClain had two releases, Journey and Joy & Pain on the CrossCut Records label. Soul Survivor: The Best of Mighty Sam McClain was his farewell to AudioQuest in 1999. McClain signed on with the Telarc Blues in 1999, taking his longtime producer Joe Harley with him, and recorded the Blues Music Award nominated Blues for the Soul (2000) and Sweet Dreams (2001).
    In 1996, McClain formed McClain Productions after successfully co-producing his albums with Joe Harley. He also created his own record label, Mighty Music, which released One More Bridge To Cross in February 2003. Betcha Didn't Know was issued in July 2009 on Mighty Music. It was nominated by the Blues Association as 'Soul/Blues Album 2010'.
    In 2008, McClain joined the 'Give US Your Poor' project, benefiting the homeless. He also co-wrote with the saxophonist Scott Shetler, Show Me the Way. He continued to work with this project, performing at both the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, and at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and other venues, sharing the stage with Natalie Merchant, and Mario Frangoulis. In early 2009, McClain recorded an album of duets with the Iranian folk singer, Mahsa Vahdat. The resulting album, Scent of Reunion: Love Duets Across Civilizations reached #6 in the European World Music Chart.[citation needed]
    McClain and the guitarist for this project, Knut Reiersrud, collaborated on One Drop is Plenty that was recorded in Norway in January 2011. Also, McClain sung the theme song for the film, Time and Charges. Find the Sun was written by Thompson and Joe Deleault, and McClain appeared in a cameo role in the film singing the song.
    McClain recorded Too Much Jesus (Not Enough Whiskey) in 2012. The following year the title song, Too Much Jesus (Not Enough Whiskey), written by McClain and Pat Herlehy, was nominated for a Blues Music Award in the 'Best Song' category.
    In 2014 McClain was featured on the compilation Songs from a Stolen Spring that paired Western musicians with artists from the Arab Spring. On the album McClain performed If I Can Dream - a Walter Earl Brown song made famous by Elvis Presley. The performance was meshed with Bread, Freedom by the Egyptian musician Ramy Essam who is best known for his appearances in Tahrir Square in Cairo during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011.
    McClain suffered a stroke in April 2015, and died on June 15, 2015. The cause of death is not yet known.

    I don't usually comment on my own videos, but in this instance I have to make an exception.
    Of all the world class musicians on my channel Sam is the only one I knew personally. His music touched the hearts and souls of many with passion and high energy. His beautiful voice told us many stories, stories put to lyrics by one of the kindest and greatest singers of our time. Please like and pass this video on and enjoy Sam at his best. Recorded in 2003 on a rainy day at the Hatch Shell in Boston.

    Samuel McClain (April 15, 1943 – June 15, 2015), billed as Mighty Sam McClain, was an American Grammy nominated soul blues singer and songwriter.

    Life and career
    He was born in Monroe, Louisiana. As a five-year-old, he began singing in his mother's Gospel Church. McClain left home when he was thirteen and followed local R&B guitarist, Little Melvin Underwood through the Chitlin' circuit, first as his valet and then as lead vocalist himself at 15.
    While singing at the 506 Club in Pensacola, Florida he was introduced to the record producer and DJ, Papa Don Schroeder and in 1966, McClain recorded a cover version of Patsy Cline's Sweet Dreams. Several recording sessions at Muscle Shoals produced the further singles, Fannie-May and In the Same Old Way. For fifteen years, first in Nashville, Tennessee, then in New Orleans, McClain worked at menial jobs. McClain toured and recorded in Japan in 1989. The end product, Live in Japan, featured Wayne Bennett.
    By the early 1990s, McClain relocated to New England through his participation in the Hubert Sumlin Blues Party project. This led to Joe Harley and AudioQuest Music. The results were the successful releases, Give It Up To Love and Keep On Movin'. After his move to New Hampshire, then followed Sledgehammer Soul and Down Home Blues. In 1998 McClain had two releases, Journey and Joy & Pain on the CrossCut Records label. Soul Survivor: The Best of Mighty Sam McClain was his farewell to AudioQuest in 1999. McClain signed on with the Telarc Blues in 1999, taking his longtime producer Joe Harley with him, and recorded the Blues Music Award nominated Blues for the Soul (2000) and Sweet Dreams (2001).
    In 1996, McClain formed McClain Productions after successfully co-producing his albums with Joe Harley. He also created his own record label, Mighty Music, which released One More Bridge To Cross in February 2003. Betcha Didn't Know was issued in July 2009 on Mighty Music. It was nominated by the Blues Association as 'Soul/Blues Album 2010'.
    In 2008, McClain joined the 'Give US Your Poor' project, benefiting the homeless. He also co-wrote with the saxophonist Scott Shetler, Show Me the Way. He continued to work with this project, performing at both the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, and at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and other venues, sharing the stage with Natalie Merchant, and Mario Frangoulis. In early 2009, McClain recorded an album of duets with the Iranian folk singer, Mahsa Vahdat. The resulting album, Scent of Reunion: Love Duets Across Civilizations reached #6 in the European World Music Chart.[citation needed]
    McClain and the guitarist for this project, Knut Reiersrud, collaborated on One Drop is Plenty that was recorded in Norway in January 2011. Also, McClain sung the theme song for the film, Time and Charges. Find the Sun was written by Thompson and Joe Deleault, and McClain appeared in a cameo role in the film singing the song.
    McClain recorded Too Much Jesus (Not Enough Whiskey) in 2012. The following year the title song, Too Much Jesus (Not Enough Whiskey), written by McClain and Pat Herlehy, was nominated for a Blues Music Award in the 'Best Song' category.
    In 2014 McClain was featured on the compilation Songs from a Stolen Spring that paired Western musicians with artists from the Arab Spring. On the album McClain performed If I Can Dream - a Walter Earl Brown song made famous by Elvis Presley. The performance was meshed with Bread, Freedom by the Egyptian musician Ramy Essam who is best known for his appearances in Tahrir Square in Cairo during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011.
    McClain suffered a stroke in April 2015, and died on June 15, 2015. The cause of death is not yet known.
