  New Morning recording session 8, Columbia Studios, NYC - 12.aug.1970  

If not for you
Babe i couldn't find the door
Couldn't even see the floor
I'd be sad an' blue
If not for you.

If not for you
Babe i'd lay awake all night
Wait for the mornin' light
To shine in thru
But it would not be new
If not for you.

If not for you
My sky would fall
Rain would gather too
Without your love
I'd be nowhere at all
I'd be lost
If not for you
An' you know it's true.

If not for you
My sky would fall
Rain would gather too
Without your love
I'd be nowhere at all
I'd be lost
If not for you.

If not for you
Winter would have no spring
Couldn't hear the robins sing
I just wouldn't have a clue
Anyway it wouldn't ring true
If not for you
If not for you.  up

If Not For You 2


1 May 1970
cd imgTHE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 2

  New Morning recording session 1, Columbia Studios, NYC - 1.may.1970  

If not for you
Babe i couldn't find the door
Couldn't even see the floor
I'd be sad and blue
If not for you.

If not for you
The night would see me wide awake
The day would surely have to break
But it would not be new
If not for you.

If not for you
My sky would fall
Rain would gather too
Without your love i'd be nowhere at all
I'd be lost if not for you.

If not for you
The winter would hold no spring
Couldn't hear the robins sing
I just wouldn't have a clue
If not for you.  up
