jerry weaver love sick child 45"I've Been Lonely For So Long" is a pop-soul song recorded by American southern soul singer Frederick Knight. The song, written by Posie Knight (the singer's wife) and Jerry Weaver, was released in 1972 by Stax Records.

The producer of Louise Freeman’s second Shout single was Jerry Weaver, a well known and talented songwriter and singer most closely associated with Neil Hemphill’s Sound Of Birmingham set up in Alabama, whose own recordings are well worthwhile investigating. She stayed with Weaver for her only outing on Playboy, both sides of which he wrote, and both of which are right in that deep soul bag that she was so comfortable in.
