About Take Me Back Again
“Take Me Back Again” is a quite pleasant song. The lyricist, Redd Evans, may be best known for his lyrics for the song “Rosie The Riveter.”


Take me in your arms again
Hold me to your heart
Kiss me soft and tender
Take me back again

Promise you will love me true
I will promise too
Sealed with sweet surrender
Take me back again

Once we love this before
That was long ago
I am so much wiser now
I won’t let you go

All the pain I’ve brought you, then
I’ll make up to you
Darling if you’ll only
Take me back again
