Delbert Mcclinton – To Be With You lyrics

I turned out all the lights
In my old world
There in the dark I left a
Tremblin' crying darling girl
It's plain to see that you got me
Doin' what I have to do
To be with you.

I wonder how big a fool a man can be
Burnin' bridges, breakin' hearts,
And causin' miseries, right or wrong
I'll go on doin' what I have to do
To be with you.

It seems you possess me body and soul
You keep my heart to poundin' so
My mind can't take control

I can't change the things I fail to see
In time I know some things I've done
Gonna all come down on me
I'll get by, though I might cry
Doin' what I have to do
To be with you.
