"Not Fade Away" as written by and Charles Hardin Norman Petty....
I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I'm gonna love you night and day
Well love is love and not fade away
Well love is love and not fade away

My love bigger than a Cadillac
I try to show it and you're drivin' me back
Your love for me has got to be real
For you to know just how I feel
Love is real and not fade away
Well love is real and not fade away

I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
Love to last more than one day
Well love is love and not fade away
Well love is love and not fade away
Well love is love and not fade away
Love, love is love and not fade away
Not fade away
Not fade away

    General CommentAnyone notice the similarities between lyrics in this song and Black Sabbath's NIB.

    Rolling Stones:
    "Your love for me has got to be real
    Before you'd have noticed how I feel"

    Black Sabbath:
    Your Love for has got to be real
    Before you know the way I'm going to feel"

    General CommentI noticed that also about N.I.B. This is a great song. Something about Bo Diddly (?) rythm?

    General CommentDefinately hear the Bo Diddley in it JosephWolf...sounds a lot like Who Do You Love in the rhythm...I think Who Do came first though
