"Belle" as written by Al L. Green, Reuben Jr. Fairfax and Fred Jordan....
The Lord and I have been friends for a mighty long time
Leaving him has never ever really crossed my mind
Let me say this one thing

I'd never go so far
Cause it's Him no matter who you are
Oh it's you that I want, but it's Him that I need
(I'd like to take a minute) just to say now,
The laughter of the sound has quieted down
The best thing we could do is have Him around
I'm no planning to leave
Let me say this one thing,
I think if love could've found
My heart was lost and now it's found
Let's you and I let the love come down

I'm so happy, let me say this,
It seems so easy to me, oh, oh, oh
I've tried to act naturally
Let's not waste each other's time

Lord, He's my surprisin', my pride and my joy,
I know that you can understand
This little country boy
(I'm just a little country boy)
He brought me safe thus far
(Let me say this to you lady)
Through many drunken country bars
Oh, let me say,
He's my bright morning star
Belle, Belle
He's my bright morning, his my bright morning
My everything, my everything
I know you're all of these things girl
Ya, but He's such a brighter joy,
He's! He's! He's!
Jesus is my!
My everything!
My everything!
In the morning (time)
In the evening (time)
In the daytime
In the nighttime

He's my everything, yeah!
Belle, Belle, Belle, Belle
Belle, Belle, Belle, Belle

    General CommentThis song is about a man's realtionship with God and a woman in his life. The first time I heard it I was completely confused "Leaving him has never really crossed my mind". Now its one of my favorite Al Green songs.
