If I Needed You

by Townes Van Zandt


If I needed you
Would you come to me
Would you come to me
For to ease my pain
If you needed me
I would come to you
I would swim the seas
For to ease your pain


Well the night's forelorn
And the morning's born
And the morning shines
With the lights of love
And you'll miss sunrise
If you close your eyes
And that would break
My heart in two



Baby's with me now
Since I showed her how
To lay her lilly
Hand in mine
Who would ill agree
She's a sight to see
A treasure for
The poor to find
