With Emmylou Harris
Written by Townes Van Zandt.
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 seas
For to ease your pain
Well the night's forlorn
And the morning's born
And the morning shines
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 seas
For to ease your pain
Baby's with me now
Since I showed her how
To lay
Her lilly
Hand in mine
Who would 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 seas
For to ease your pain
