IF I COULD BE THERE
Emmylou Harris


(Kieran Kane/Jamie O'Hara)

If I could be there I'd be there tonight comforting you
This road I'm on is so far away
Too far away

If God would grant me wings to fly
I'd be in your arms by and by
If I could be there I'd be there tonight comforting you

If I could be there I'd look in your eyes and say I love you
These hills and highways between us now keep us apart

If God would grant me wings to fly
I'd be in your arms by and by
If I could be there I'd look in your eyes and say I love you

If I could be there I wouldn't have this pain in my heart
Tomorrow I'll wake up with joy for the day
Joy for the day

If God would grant me wings to fly
I'd be in your arms by and by
If I could be there I wouldn't have this pain in my heart

If I could be there
