Solomon Burke - GOT TO GET YOU OFF MY MIND

First performance: 12/05/1977


Coverinfo

Bruce covered the song only once in 1977 : 
 
1977-05-13 - MONMOUTH ARTS CENTER, RED BANK, NJ

During both the early (first show) and  Late (second show):  
Two separate admission shows. Independent recollections from those present indicate that Springsteen was on stage for the entirety of both shows. The gigs were originally scheduled as a standard Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes gig. However Southside became ill and couldn't perform so Steven Van Zandt came to the rescue by organizing The Asbury Park All-Star Revue - a combination of The Asbury Jukes, The E Street Band, Ronnie Spector and Springsteen. Van Zandt was the lead vocalist (with Bruce on guitar/background vocals) on most of the tracks .

Lyrics

Got to get you off of my mind
I know it's just a matter of time
You've found somebody new
And our romance is through
Yes it is
Gonna throw your picture away
You didn't want my love, any old way
You've found somebody new
And our romance is through
Yes it is
Some folks love is hard and strong
That's the kind of love that lingers on
Some folks love is swift and fast
That's the kind of love that'll never last
We had a love that was in between
And to me it was like a dream
If we had stayed together till June
Not a problem, bride and groom
That's why
Got to get you off of my mind
I know it's just a matter of time
You've found somebody new
And our romance is through
Listen to me
Got to get you off of my mind
I know it's just a matter of time
Got to get you off of my mind
I know it's just a matter of time
