Townes Van Zandt - If I Needed You

PrintCamiel Bouchier0

“If I Needed You” (1981) by the highly influential Townes Van Zandt.

In my home country also known in the version of “The Broken Circle Breakdown Bluegrass Band”


If I needed you
Would you come to me,
Would you come to me,
And ease my pain?
If you needed me
I would come to you
I'd swim the seas
For to ease your pain

In the night forlorn
The morning's born
And the morning shines
With the lights of love
You will miss sunrise
If you close your eyes
That would break
My heart in two

The lady's with me now
Since I showed her how
To lay her lily
Hand in mine
Loop and Lil agree
She's a sight to see
And a treasure for
The poor to find
