If I Had You
Alabama
Album: For The Record

If I had you we'd run like gypsies in the wind
We'd be lovers and we'd be friends, if I had you
If I had you we'd count the stars all one by one
We'd make love till they were gone oh, if I had you

'Cause you light a fire way down in my soul
The flame keeps growin' stronger
'Cause there ain't no control
And there's nothing, no there's nothing
No there's nothing that I wouldn't do, if I had you

If I had you, we'd sail the seven seas as one
We'd never say it can't be done, oh, if I had you

'Cause you light a fire way down in my soul
The flame keeps growin' stronger there ain't no control
And there's nothing, oh, there's nothing
I know there's nothing that I wouldn't do, if I had you
If I had you...

    I was with Danny Mayo in 1981-82 when he wrote this song while we were driving down the road. It's amazing to see how a song prgresses from the raw words to the melody and finally how it is finished. This song has a very personal meaning, I'm glad that others appreciate it too!!!
