Sentimental Lady
 

Written & Sung: B. Welch; Guitar and Backup Vocal: L. Buckingham

You are here and warm But I could look away, and you'd be gone 'Cause we live in a time When meaning falls in splinters from our lives That's why I've travelled far 'Cause I come so together where you are Yes, and all of the things that I said that I wanted Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you Fourteen joys and a will to be merry All of the things that they say are buried Sentimental, gentle wind Blowing through my life again Sentimental lady, gentle one (All I needed) Sentimental, gentle wind Blowing through my life again Sentimental lady, gentle one Sentimental lady Yes, and all of the things that I said that I wanted Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you Fourteen joys and a will to be merry All of the things that they say are buried Sentimental, gentle wind Blowing through my life again Sentimental lady, gentle one (All I needed) Sentimental, gentle wind Blowing through my life again Sentimental lady, gentle one (All I needed) Yes, all of the things that I said that I wanted Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you Fourteen joys and a will to be merry All of the things that they... (All I needed) All of the things that I said that I wanted Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you Fourteen joys and a will to be merry...


WEBMISTRESS speculates:

Bob originally released this song on a Fleetwood Mac album (pre-Lindsey and Stevie), but it's a good, sweet, romantic song (I think written for his wife) so I guess he decided to pull it out for his solo album. Lindsey contributes to this one, which seems appropriate, since he replaced Bob Welch in FM! Again, I can't help but notice Bob Welch's tendency towards those pimp daddy album covers - first Three Hearts, then this. I am seeing a theme here - and somehow it doesn't seem to have much to do with "sentimental ladies"! And yet this song is a beautiful tribute to true love... so I guess appearances can be deceiving.

 

STEVE speculates:

Mick Fleetwood & John McVie also play on Bob Welch's "French Kiss" version of "Sentimental Lady". It really WAS "Fleetwood Mac" by all intents...just kind of shows what they would've sounded like had Lindsey & Stevie joined WITHOUT Bob leaving the band.
