picture of man and woman in their sixties
"They are sixty,
and their history spans forty odd years.
They have buried their parents,
now their grandkids are here."
picture of a woman on her eightieth birthday
picture of a woman being lifted up by God
"Now she is eighty,
and she hates being in this nursing home.
Her man's been gone for a long time
and she feels so alone."
"And God lifts her up
and he holds her.
And she remembers this feeling she has.
She is not a woman whose life is almost over"
picture of a little girl being held by her Dad
"She's a little girl being held by her Dad."
"And God, I know exactly what love is.
Love is real simple and true.
Love is this feeling my heart gets
when I'm being held close by you.
God love is real simple.
Love is real simple.
Love is real simple and true."
Written and performed by Don White at the
Greenwood Coffee House in Ann Arbor, Michigan

This sound clip of 'I Know What Love Is'
is from a live show so it may not sound
the way you expect it to.

You may have heard the version of this song
which includes harmony.  That version is found
on a CD titled Acoustic Alliance Volume 1.

'I Know What Love Is' is also on Don White's
CD called Vagabonds In Disguise,
that version is acapella.

It can also be found on his Rascal CD
accompanied by piano and drums.

A live version of
"I Know What Love Is"
can be viewed on the recently
released DVD:

"It's a Great Day.  Don White Live in Watertown"

While I enjoy all the versions of this song
that are on the CD's,
I have to say that none of them are as
powerful as hearing 'I Know What Love Is'
performed live by Don White.
