IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND

Live 03 Oct 2005 version


We said we'd walk together, baby, come what may
That come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walking a hand should slip free
Well I'll wait for you, dear, and should I fall behind wait for me

We swore we'd travel, darling, side by side
We'd help each other stay in stride
But each lover's steps fall so differently
Well I'll wait for you, dear, and should I fall behind wait for me

Everyone dreams of a love lasting and true
But you and I know what this world can do
So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
And I'll wait for you, dear, and should I fall behind wait for me

There's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
Well I'll wait for you, dear, and should I fall behind
Yeah I'll wait for you, dear, and should I fall behind wait for me

[Spoken outro:] Step on up and support your public radio station. Thank you Jeff! (chuckles)
