Joe Offer Lyr Req: Songs by Bruce 'Utah' Phillips (78* d) ADD Version: Hymn Song (Utah Phillips) 11 Dec 02

(Bruce "Utah" Phillips)

I believe if I lived my life again
I'd still be here with you
I believe if I lived my life again
I'd still be here with you

You know I think if Lady Luck was blind
That old sun would never shine
You know I think if Death really held a knife
We'd all be beggars of life

Sometimes I wish that I could close my eyes
To some things I don't want to see
But I believe if you lived your life again
You'd still be here with me

I'll never see the ending of my mind
Everything will have a time
Why should I ask for things that I don't need
Or pretty lies to hide my greed

This is in the Digital Tradition as I BELIEVE IF I LIVED MY LIFE AGAIN. The lyrics I found in Rise Up Singing are slightly different, most notably in the line about Death holding a knife.
