4. If I Needed You (Townes Van Zandt)
Ed Stabler asked me if I knew this tune when we first started playing together - best-known version (previously) by Don Williams and Emmy Lou Harris. It was a perfect fit for us and we enjoy singing it immensely. Absolutely had to include it on this disc...

Lyrics

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 sea for to ease your pain.

Well the night's forlorn and the morning's born
and the morning's born 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 sea for to ease your pain.

Baby's with me now since I showed her how,
to lay her lily hand in mine.
Who could 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 sea for to ease your pain.

Mmmmmmm Mmmmmmmmm
