Buck Owens – If I Had You (By My Side) lyrics

I could make a sad man happy I could make the roses glow
I could even take a summer rain and turn it into snow
I could stop the moon from shining or change the ocean tide
If I had you if I had you by my side.

I could make a poor man wealthy make the river flow up stream
I could even turn a nightmare into a sweetest dream
I could change this blue and lonely man and fill his heart with pride
If I had you if I had you by my side.

I could change this smallest candle to a flame that burn so bright
I could make the last be first in line and all the wrong be right
I could scale the highest mountain or swim the oceans wide
If I had you if I had you by my side.

If I had you if I had you by my side...
