"I Can't Turn You Loose" is a song written and first recorded by American soul singer Otis Redding. It was released as the B-side to his 1965 single "Just One More Day". The up-tempo song became a bigger hit on the US R&B chart than its A-side and was one of Redding's signature songs and often appeared in his live performances.

In 1968, the Chambers Brothers' version of this song reached number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
