Tanya Tucker was one of the most popular female country singers in the 1970's and 80's. Enjoy a vintage live performance of "Love Me Like You Used To" and the full lyrics here.

Country music star Tanya Tucker first rose to fame in the early 1970’s, when she was just a teenager. Her rock n’ roll style and powerful voice gained Tucker popularity and the status as one of country’s only female singers to be classified as ‘outlaw country’.

After some sales decline in the early 1980s, and her rocky relationship with country star Glen Campbell coming to an end, Tanya’s comeback in the mid-1980s saw a much more upbeat, pop-country sound that re-vamped her popularity.

Her second album after this comeback, Love Me Like You Used To, held three Billboard Top Ten Country singles, including the title track, which peaked at #2.

“Love Me Like You Used To” Lyrics

In a cozy little restaurant for lovers
It seems so out of place for you and me
We used to play around, under the covers
But now it’s just a place to watch TV

So love me like you used to
When our love was brand new
And, darlin’, when we’re through
You can love me again

And hold me like you want to
Instead of like you have to
Love me like you used to love me
When you used to love me

Baby, we could use a long vacation
But the trouble here is bound to tag along
We used to be each other’s inspiration
When it only took my touch to turn you on

So love me like you used to
When our love was brand new
And darlin’, when we’re through
You can love me again

And hold me like you want to
Instead of like you have to
Love me like you used to love me
When you used to love me

Well, we used to sit and talk about forever
But now we hardly ever talk at all
We walked a lot of tightropes together
We always caught each other when we’d fall

So love me like you used to
When our love was brand new
And darlin’, when we’re through
You can love me again

And hold me like you want to
Instead of like you have to
Love me like you used to love me
When you used to love me

Love me like you used to
When you used to love me
