Jimmy Wakely got his break into showbusiness in 1940, when his trio was hired to play in Gene Autry's radio show. He left after two years to pursue his own career in music and films, appearing in well over 60 as a cowboy actor. He recorded his original version of "I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin')," which he wrote himself, on 1 July 1941, for release on Decca 5973. Wakely died in 1982.


I'll Never Let You Go ( Little Darlin')
performed by:
Jimmy Wakely



You say we've reached the hour of parting,
You say our dream of love is gone,
But I could never live without you,
So please don't leave me all alone!

I'll never let you go, little darlin',
I'm sorry that I made you cry!
I'll never let you go 'cause I love you,
So please don't try to say goodbye!

The stars would tumble down beside me,
The moon would hang his head and cry,
My arms would never hold another
If you should ever say goodbye!

I'll never let you go, little darlin',
I love you till the day I die!
I'll never let you go 'cause I love you,
So please don't try to say goodbye!




I'll Never Let you Go ( Little Darlin')
performed by: Elvis Presley



I'll never let you go, little darlin'.
I'm so sorry 'cause I made you cry.
I'll never let you go, 'cause I love you.
So please don't ever say good-bye.


The stars would tumble down beside me,
The moon would hang its head and cry.
My arms would never hold another baby doll
If we should ever say good-bye.


Well, I'll never let you go,
Because I love you, pretty baby.
I'm so sorry 'cause I made you cry.
I made you cry.
Yeah, I'll never let you go,
'Cause I love you, little baby.
So please don't ever say good-bye.
