“HALLELUJAH, I LOVE HER SO” er en Ray Charles-original som Eigil Berg tok med seg fra Morgans-repertoaret over til New Jordal Swingers. Morgans gjorde den i arrangementet til The Animals, NJS gjør den i arrangementet til The Blues Band, men det er Ray Charles’ original some er utgangspunktet for alle versjonene. Både Eigil og Bjørn Kristiansen hadde Ray Charles blant sine største favoritter, og Bjørn spiller slide-gitar i NJS’ live-versjon av denne. Denne live-versjonen ble utgitt på Fanklubb-kassetten “Uhørt” og digitalt på samlingen “Fanklubb-Utgivelsene”.

Hallelujah I Love Her So

(Ray Charles)

Let me tell you 'bout a girl I know
She's my woman and she lives next door
Every mornin' when the sun comes up
She brings me coffee in my favorite cup
That's why I know, yes, I know
Hallelujah, I just love her so

When I'm in trouble and I have no friend
I know she'll go with me until the end
Everybody asks me how I know
I smile at them and say, "She told me so"
That's why I know, yes, I know
Hallelujah, I just love her so

When I call her on the telephone
And tell her baby I'm all alone
By the time I count from one to four
I hear her [KNOCK-KNOCK-KNOCK-KNOCK] on my door

In the evening when the sun goes down
When there is nobody else around
She kisses me and then she holds me tight
And tells me, "Daddy, everything is all right"
That's why I know, yes, I know
Hallelujah, I just love her so

Now, when I call her on the telephone
And tell her that I'm all alone
By the time I count from one to four
I hear her [KNOCK-KNOCK-KNOCK-KNOCK] on my door

In the evening when the sun goes down
And  there ain’t nobody else around
She kisses me and then she holds me tight
And tells me, "Baby, everything is all right"
That's why I know, yes, I know
Hallelujah, I just love her so

That’s why I know, yes I know

Hallelujah, I just love her

Well I just love that girl so
