  Witmark demo, NYC - december 1962  

If today was not a crooked highway
If tonight i could finally stand tall
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to me at all.
Yes 'n' only if my own true love was waitin'
Yes 'n' if i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
Only if she was lyin' by me
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

I can't see my reflection in the waters
I can't speak the sounds that know no pain
I can't hear the echo of my footsteps
I can't remember the sound of my own name.
Yes 'n' only if my own true love was waitin'
Yes if i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
Only if she was lyin' by me
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

There's beauty in the silver singin' river
There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky
But none of these and nothin' else can match the beauty
That i remember in my true love's eyes.
Yes 'n' only if my own true love was waitin'
If i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
Only if she was lyin' by me
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

Yes 'n' only if my own true love was waitin'
If i could only hear her heart a-softly poundin'
Yes 'n' only if she was lyin' by me
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.  up

  Live, Town Hall, NYC - 12.apr.1963  

If today was not a crooked highway
If tonight was not a crooked trail
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothin' to me at all.
Yes 'n' only if my own true love was waitin'
If i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
Yes 'n' only if she was lyin' by me
I'd lie in my bed once again.

I can't see my reflection in the water
I can't speak the sounds that show no pain
I can't hear the echo of my footsteps
Or remember the sounds of my own name.
Yes 'n' only if my own true love was waitin'
If i could only hear her heart a-softly poundin'
Yes 'n' only if she was lyin' by me
Then i'd lie in my bed once again.

There's beauty in that silver singin' river
There's beauty in that rainbow in the sky
But none of these an' nothin' else can touch the beauty
That i remember in my true love's eyes.
Yes 'n' only if my own true love was waitin'
'f i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
Yes 'n' only if she was lyin' by me
Then i'd lie in my bed once again.  up

cd imgMP3 Songs

  New Morning session 5, NYC - 4.jun.1970  

If today was not an endless highway
If tonight was not a crooked trail
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothin' to me at all.
An' if only my own true love was waiting
If i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
If only she was lyin' by me
Then i'd lie in my bed once again.

There's beauty in that silver singin' river
There's beauty in that sunrise in the sky
None of these an' nothin' else can touch the beauty
That i know inside of my true love's eyes.
If only my own true love was waiting
Yes if i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
If only she was lyin' by me
Then i'd lie in my bed once again.

I can't see my reflection in the water
I can't speak the sounds that show no pain
I can't hear the echo of my footsteps
Or remember the sounds of my own name.
But if only my own true love was waiting
If i could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
If only she was lyin' by me
Then i'd lie in my bed once again
Yes i would lie in my bed once again.
