Subject: Lyr Req: Wishing Don't Always Make It So
From: Barbara Shaw
Date: 02 Jun 09 - 11:54 AM

I heard a song on the radio that I'd like to find and learn. Don't really know the title, but have the following lyrics stuck in my head:

Wish I had a dollar
For every wish that didn't go
Seems to me that wishing
Don't always make it so.

It was sung by a female with old-time country sounding accompaniment.

Anyone know anything about this song?

Never mind. Found it myself.

It's a song called Wishin' on an album called The Lucky One by Christy McWilson. Beautiful country weeper.

I'm wishin' I had all the lyrics. Christy McWilson has a very nice voice. I got this from a sample:

Now my pocket's empty and there's nothin' left to show.
Could it be that wishin' don't always make it so?

I've heard that hope's eternal, but am I just a fool...?

WISHIN'
As recorded by Christy McWilson, 2000

E / E / E7 / E7
Thought I'd learned a lesson
A / A / E / E
From the bottom of the wishin' well
B7 / B7 / B7 / B7
Can you hear the thunder
A / A / B7 / B7
Of my pennies as they finally fell
E / E / E7 / E7
Now my pocket's empty
A / A / F# / F#
And there's nothing left to show
A / A / E / E
Could it be that wishin'
B7 / B7 / E / E
Don't always make it so.

I've heard that hope's eternal
But am I just a fool to be
Betting lucky numbers never destined for me
Every year I close my eyes
Take a breath, and when I blow
Seems to me that wishin' don't always make it so.

B7 / B7 / B7 / B7
And love stays out of bounds
A / A / E / E        
Like the stars that let me down
B7 / B7 / B7 / B7
They're winking at me still
A / A / B7 / B7
And I'm thinking that they always will.

E / E / E7 / E7
Wish I had a dollar
A / A / F# / F#
For every wish that didn't go
A / A / E / E
Seems to me that wishin'
B7 / B7 / E / E
Don't always make it so.
