Hail (hail)
What's the matter with your head? Yeah
Hail (hail)
What's the matter with your mind
And your sign? And a, oh, oh, oh
Hail (hail)
Nothin' the matter with your head
Baby, find it, come on and find it
Hail, with it, baby
'Cause you're fine
And you're mine, and you look so divine

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Hail (hail)
What's the matter with you? Feel right
Don't you feel right baby?
Hail, oh yeah
Get it from the main vine, all right
I said a find it, find it
Go on and love it if you like it, yeah
Hail (hail)
It's your business if you want some, take some
Get it together baby

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Hail (hail)
What's the matter with you? Feel right
Don't you feel right baby?
Hail, oh yeah
Get it from the main vine, all right

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

    General CommentJust a really nice love song. This was great to see live on midnight special. It's a shame no one else has commented on this yet.

    Actually though, a seperate interpretation is that this might be about unrequited love, and the narrator doesn't understand why his feelings aren't being returned, and is in fact in denial of this rejection.

    General CommentLennon, sorry but you kind of sound like bsing. Every source I've encountered lists Redbone as being Native American. They even got the idea for putting together an all Native American band from Jimi Hendrix (who was part Native American himself). The term "Redbone" is a direct reference to their Native American heritage.

    What about their song "We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee", doesn't that seem to have some Native American resonance?

    I know you haven't posted in years but logically, I think you're talking out of your @ss

    Anyway, check out their video for the song wearing some pretty Native American looking garb
    youtube.com/…

    I mean it might have been a gimmick but c'mon. I'm really surprised people come on here and act like they toured with people, especially Redbone. haha I mean great song and all but people just make me laugh

    General CommentI think people are overthinking things a bit here.
    To me, it's just a simple song where the singer is inviting his lover to be with him tonight. In wa way though, it can be interpreted as the singer saying "don't use illegal drugs tonight, have love instead."

    My OpinionPretty sure he is saying, "hail." Redbone being Native American I figured that's what they are saying.

    My InterpretationGlad to see this song “get some love”! First Bill Burr uses it and now used in Reservation Dogs! It runs through the story a bit, and in the end they show a clip of them performing it.

    What I get from the song, a guy is trying to patch things up with his gal. Get it from the main vine “not the grape vine”. It’s about communication in a relationship. Trying to bring her up, hail with it.

    General CommentYou can get the meaning directly from Pat Vegas himself, because Marc Meyers of The Wall Street Journal did an interview with Pat Vegas for a January 21, 2020 article he wrote about the meaning of the song. The article is called "The Other Message in Redbone’s ‘Come and Get Your Love’: Bassist Pat Vegas talks about the origins of the song and its tribute to the band’s Native-American roots." Here's a link to the article -- wsj.com/articles/…

    General CommentAnd Sifuasher hit it perfectly, Mexicans have Native American heritage. The Vazquez brothers happened to be Mexican-Americans with Native American heritage

    General CommentLennon, I apprciate your interpretation. That would make sense, but is there anyway you could show some sort of proof you toured with Redbone? I'm a trusting person but, you know, people can pretty much say anything over the internet. By the way, the Mexican peoples do have a Native American heritage.
