Yeah, I thought maybe if I put a link, somebody might listen and remember that they have the words on their computer.

I do think I can hear almost all of the words and was headed back toward the computer to check and see if someone had posted them for you.
I'll give it a hard listen right now and see what I can come up with.

From: Melissa

I'm not sure about 'be blue' but the rest ought to be right.


SOMEONE TO LOVE YOU
Ted Chalfant
As sung by Martin Delray on "Get Rhythm" (1990)

1. She was sorting through some letters he'd kept beneath their bed,
And read the one he'd written her the week before he left.
It was the only way he knew of to make one last request
Of the one who stood beside him 'til they laid his soul to rest.

CHORUS: "I want someone to love you when I'm gone from here.
I want someone beside you to dry every tear.
I know when I leave you your heart will be blue.
If it brings you peace, dear, I want someone to love you."

2. She could barely read his writing on the paper stained with tears,
But she felt his love in every line as he shared his greatest fear.
He said, "Honey, I can't bear the thought of you here all alone.
I hope you'll find somebody to help you carry on." CHORUS

TAG: "If it brings you peace, dear, I want someone to love you."

yup, with another listen, I do think my transcription is accurate. I'm pretty sure he says 'be blue'

Nice song!
Maybe somebody else with a good ear for country lyrics will come along and check it..


Do some of my phrases sound like they don't match him, LouieRoy?

Melissa I don't know how I can repay you but you are a doll. You asked where I couldn't understand. What I was able to decipher was so far wrong I just gave up.The words you posted are in my opinion 100% correct and I owe you one and I hope someday I'll be able to return the favor.There is only one way to say thanks but I'll repeat THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

I worked with the guy that wrote this song. Ted chalfant. I have an autographed copy of cd! I even have the demo tape that was sung by Alan Jackson, before he was famous.

Indeed, the US Copyright Office confirms that Ted Chalfant wrote a song called SOMEONE TO LOVE YOU a.k.a I WANT SOMEONE TO LOVE YOU, registered in 1991.

Larry Cee a giant Martin Delray fan. If he was born in Texarkana, Arkansas, how can he be an Aussie?
