Thread Name: I Need a Good Duet!!!
Subject: Lyr Add: IF I NEEDED YOU (Van Zandt)
One last recommendation and then I'll give up trying to convince you to sing something other than what you have planned!


IF I NEEDED YOU
(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 forlorn
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

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

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

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


(a nice recording of this is on Emmylou Harris' album CIMMARON which has been released on CD in the past few years)




As a harmony singer (who currently has no partner), I collect good duets. I have so many of them that I'd love to make you a CD or tape of any that you might like to hear and learn. Please PM me if you'd care to have such a tape/CD or series of tapes.
