David Allan Coe – If You'll Hold The Ladder lyrics

By Buzz Rabin & Sara B

Dedication: To Buzz Rabin who gave me a place to stay when I first went to Nashville and has been a part of my life ever since (see my book 'just for the record'). This is one of the finest love songs I've ever heard.

Baby your the only dream I've ever had come true

There's so much more to reach for thanks to you

Now I can climb this mountain, babe, there was A time I'd stop

If you'll just hold the ladder baby I'll climb to the top

If you'll just stand beside me all the way

Ill do all the things that didn't matter yesterday, hey

And I'll be everything this man can be before I stop

If you'll just hold the ladder baby I'll climb to the top

Things just started changing with your touch
