Help me make it through the night

One of my dad’s favourites and over the years I have heard him sing this one so many times . He loves the Engelbert version but I like the Lynn Anderson version , so am posting that one .

Sometimes , for no specific reason ,  a song just makes its way into my head and refuses to leave. This is one such night and tonight it happens to be this song – Help me make it through the night .

The lyrics go like this ..

Take the ribbon from my hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Lyin’ soft against your skin
Like the shadow on the wall

Come and lie down by my side
In the early mornin’ light
All I’m takin’ is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don’t care if it’s right or wrong
I won’t try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
Lord, tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow’s out of sight
I don’t want to be alone
Help me make it through the night

— that mishmash ( Let the devil take tomorrow …..)
